From his website it was probably around $700

More like around $800 with the new flange and runners

Oh no no no.... V-band AF setup #1 off of Sav's track car... look back a couple posts.

I am, however, having Abe make me a 1.8 taco for the blue NB I picked up recently so i can use the setup I pulled off the track car. I know, confusing with 3 different cars being talked about in this thread. Think I should start another thread for the blue NB? Its nothing special, so just thought I'd keep it all in here...

Well - I also got the news yesterday that the intake valves were hammered out on the seats - So Sav got me an order in for +1 Inconel exhaust, +1 intakes, and SI Manganese-bronze guides - and since going this far, naturally a port and polish is in order... couple these with the springs and retainers I recieved earlier, all this VVT head needs is a new set of 'special' cams maybe by the end of the year... the cherry on top would be adjustable gears

Ordered items pending delivery: 949 twin-disc ceramic, TSE radiator, SuperMiata Harmonic Damper with 36 tooth, Haltech sport 2000, fuelab FPR

Needing to order: Sway bar kit, 15x10 6ULs, AuotoKxn GT wide-body kit, Coolers and pumps, a REAL race seat (Sparco/OMP/Racetech) with halo, 3-layer nomex suit/undergarments/shoes/gloves, AMB transponder

Just wanted to say that my web site is so old, my web guy has been gone for almost 2 years, and I don't have a clue when it comes to that stuff. Anyways sorry for the thread jack.

A new twin scroll EFR would be ridiculous - but I'll settle for sloppy seconds I'm debating flying Andrew out to Bham to set the car up on a track weekend - before I get in it and destroy it in a couple laps

With all this awesome ****, do you have new power goals? Or are you going to still tune it down to ~270? Because a new IM seems like overkil for 270 to me.

400 on E85 - hopefully the Belfab rods and Supertechs will hold, and I didn't go crazy 11:1 ratios either - 9.5:1 84mm is what I have since I will most definetly be runing pump at some point. E85 isn't very abundant around here, especially near any road courses.
