I have a Ram x-grip and it vibrates way too much and I can't get it behind me.

RAM does make a roll bar mount, i use it for my timer. for that matter, some circle clamps and well bent metal could get you working. plus that video looks fine to me, id never have thought it had too much vibration. i use a gopro rollbar mount on the front of my cage and it works well enough.

Damn dude, congrats on getting it working. I have my build thread on another forum, but it's still pretty similar (VVT into a 94 and whatnot); however, I'm only making 140whp/120ft-lbs and I'm running on R-S3s.

Compared to my Mazda2 and what I can remember of my stockish Miata, this thing is a god damn hoot. The only cars that passed me this weekend were a C5Z06 with a giant wing and a giant cam, an instructor in a Factory Five, and a 997 GT3. Feels good man.

Less police BS. I guess this settles the argument of using ducting or fans to cool water, lol. Find me a fan that will do that to a license plate.

I read the whole thread tonight lol. I doubt you care now but why was the Borla race exhaust never an option? Red 5 on m.net used it and gained some power over his RB stuff I believe. He is at a very similar power level as well, 149 whp.

I'll take 10lb less weight over 2-4hp. It's also crazy expensive, thanks though.
