For those who are interested in FE3 Head Porting. I give you reference. Unfortunately there's not much room to play with. This was a fresh junkyard head with no cams. Figured i'd put it to use for educational purposes.

Proportioning valve relocated to a new location.



and I've acquired 2 baby turbos for future shenanigans. 2 TD03's from a 335I BMW. GT35 for reference. Baby kittens were not available for this photo op.

I guess. He did blow so much money getting it ready for the track that now he has none left to actually track it though.

-New side exit exhaust
-SADFab Turn Signal projectors
-Working Speedo - See end of post
-possible tubular front subfame
-front aero/ducting
-rear aero
-relocate and reduct oil cooler
-tires
-get the thing on the fuking track (my words not his)
-new springs 750/550
-copy most of aidan's ms development and tinyiox stuff.

Here are some pics as it stands, and the video of the working speedo

One helluva list.

I'd strongly suggest the 2.5" ducts over the 3" ducts. Much easier to fit, and plenty sufficient. Mine rub a bit still. Wouldn't have been able to fit 3" ducts on my car.

Ben goes all out. Also with the custom front aero stuff he should probably be able to fit them.

I'm sure there's a way to fit them, but it'd be a PITA and the 2.5s are already so much bigger than the earlier 2" ducts, which also worked fine.

But in for how to make 3" fit.

Thank you. Carry on.

Sorry all. I'm not on the interwebs much.
