Thanks
VTCS < VICS < SQUARETOP

Definitely worth it

10-15hp for 100 bux is already a steal.
and then you notice the vtcs plummets past 6500 while vics holds making the difference more like 30-40 up top.

yeah

Link to thread about oil squirters:
Oil squirters/ piston oilers discussion

Godless Commie retained his oil squirters and had his oil control rings fail. Honestly you should still be good WITH them, but I am personally not taking the risk.
Excessive oil burning, oil jets, stuck rings, acetone

Gregs latest video is great. A chunk of block actually broke off.

Post some pics.

Also, which one of you commented and asked if he was going to be running a SADFab manifold.

Has Greg not talked about his new setup yet? He is going with a MKTurbo setup, but instead of the standard T3 ChinaCharger he is going with the nice big EFR 9180 that was just for sale in the classifieds.

News to me, I only know he's going for big power.

Why such a huge EFR?

Well after breaking a 1.6 block it was decided breaking a 1.8 block was the next logical challenge. We talked about putting Faeflora's old setup on his car, but he wanted to keep AC/PS so we decided against it. So then we went to the EFR 9180, once we figured out we could get a t3 housing for it, it because an easy choice. Because my manifold already works with AC/PS and this turbo should be big enough to crack a 1.8 block.

LOLL 9180 Y'all are hilarious. Literally nobody knows what my setup is yet except for Aidan. I want to at least keep it somewhat of a surprise to reveal on YouTube once I get a few more bits in.

Clearly none of us care what your new setup will be nearly as much as we care how much we entertain ourselves.
