I seriously appreciate the help but there are verbs that go nowhere, we're missing direct objects, and there is a mess of "be-verbs" in there. Please ty again, I really want this information.

This car is a blast and an SM destroyer. I ran two sessions today with the Birkin/7 group.

What track? What's a Birkin/7? What lap times?

Apologies if I missed it, but what header are you using? Any dB readings with the Roadster Sport exhaust?

RB header. I don't know how load with the RS exhaust but it's too raspy and sounds like ****.

Interesting. I was thinking a RB header on my car, RS midpipe with cat, then RB muffler.

I bet you sound like a huge ricer.

You really should look into some ITBs, drive down the block like a boss

I'll be at F1. :(

I will not drive this car again until I get new engine management, gutted dash, corner balanced, and aligned. Set-up is a huge problem right now because the way I'm driving the car demands absolute perfection.

A Birkin is a Lotus 7 style car with a 220whp Duratec, sold as new kit cars.

MSR-C 1.7 CW.

I struggled to learn the track and turned a 1:26.8 which according to the guy in the clubhouse, is the fastest SM time on record in that direction on the books. That is slower than SM, the track was ultra hot, and I struggled to learn the track in the two sessions I was out there. I ran with a few SMs and they could do no better than a 28 and change. Again, I could use another hour running that direction. I am really struggling with set-up. I need to get a balance and alignment for a base-line so I can figure out what to do with the rear of the car. Wagging the tail at the top of Ricochet at 85mph over the crest while looking at the flag station is not fun, lol.

They won't mate unless you mod them. Just get the RB or whatever 949 or TSE tells you to buy. I don't know why you guys fight this ****. Those guys have done the work, they race cars...and win.

Fight what ****? I'm seeking your guidance, haven't fought anything.

The info on Goodwin Racing indicated the RS midpipe would work with everything. I'm shooting for a plebeian 130 or so N/A rwhp. My thoughts were Reverant MS, RB header, RB catback, RS midpipe, DDM intake, and leave it alone.

The car is occasionally driven to work, would like it to remain quiet when not being railed on.

I digress, but you are still the man. Nice videos.

.
RS midpipe has a v-band on the end, RB rear section has a two-bolt. I like the DDM piece, but foam filters are AIDS. I also like a quiet car. RB is heavy but superior to the RS exhaust in every other way. Also remember that my RS exhaust didn't fit for ****. I believe all RB rear sections are on back-order so enjoy the wait. RB also has a resonated midpipe. I have a header -> resonated pipe -> midpipe (with 1" extension) -> rear section -> flame

Would your advice to be to buy RB from nose to tail, and get a converter added if needed?

Yes. I don't run a cat because they don't last in a track car, two cars killed them at Hallett. If you don't run a cat, you want the resonator.

I believe 949 did research and determined the RB header is god. I know someone with a JR header in Dallas that he'd like to sell.

If anyone has a 99 valve cover or adjustable cam gear with 99CMP pick-ups, I want to buy.

Is anything done to the head? Why not save that money for now and wait to buy a VVT head?

I don't want to mess with VVT since I already have an MS cam. I'm going to use my old turbo head on this engine eventually since it has the nice valvetrain.

You should come over and practice it in that direction in rFactor. It's exactly like the real track. Just ask Wags.
