Dafuq? Why would you buy rings for "temporary use"?

Do you rebuild your engine every few weeks for fun?

I'm confused: I want more power but to stay under 300 whp
I've read that stock pistons are 300 hp capable (I have 8 more stock piston in my garage), but... I want reliability. Once I build the engine I want to do it once.
Are stock pistons 300 whp capable for a long time or I have to put 8.8:1 wiseco or supertech?
also: which clutch do you consider for that power goal?

Did you notice the direction of the exhaust?




There is clearly something wrong.

lolol yeah crimped mufflers do not belong on turbo cars, especially if you are doing anything which makes explosions in the exhaust.

why wouldn't you put on a good muffler?

turbo mufflers are awful for turbo cars.

Seems it'd be a better idea to not waste money and just run it without a muffler for a few days?

Those crimped "turbo" mufflers are only $20-30 so I'm sure he's not out too much cash.

Along the lines of "why not run without muffler?"

I am seriously considering making a muffler delete section on my next exhaust. My magnaflow is so quiet and when I ran straight downpipe to midpipe for a a day last year I didn't really mind it. I hear the SRT Neons ran mufflerless from factory?

Just thinking out loud.

Pretty sweet progress so far. Did I read that right and you're running it on LPG or propane? I'd like to know more about that conversion, how it runs, etc.

Oh man this thread is entertainment. Thanks for all the pics. You know you are doing some interesting things with the arduino. Im surprised you are not developing things and selling them on here to fund your build. Which also led me to wonder why you didnt build your own MS. Nonethless thank you for all the work you have done here. This thread is very enjoyable. How much longer do you think the ebay manifold will last?
