In before someone else points it out - why did your MSPNP need to be assembled, and who is Brian?

to be honest i didnt research building it myself... how much do i stand to save if i do it myself? I assume there is a good amount of write ups?

MSPNP comes fully assembled, hence the name. It's the MS for we unwashed, solder-averse types. Did you mean DIYPNP?

sorry i guess i did realize there were two different version of PNP. Can i ask the retarded *** question as to what is the difference? They both seem to be the same price?

getting it built by Scott or buying pre-assembled

well the budget part went to ---- but here is some more info (also for some reason i cant edit my first post). I didnt do the coolant reroute or the oil cooler. Installed a water temp gauge coming right off the back of the head (temps dont exceed 215). I deleted the heater core and plumb right back into the mixing manifold. Oil temps are fine, reading off the drain plug.

So here are a few of the dyno graphs. Dotted line is after e85 solid line is before e85, 40 HP difference and a crap load more boost. We could have gone further but the actuator was too weak. We actually exceeded the limitations of the turbo and the injectors were at only 80% utilization. Boost went from ~10 PSI to ~17 PSI.

In order to keep in my Time Attack group (TA-B which is a 10/1 power to weight ratio) we had to reduce the horse power to 224.9.

I was going to mention budget and time attack don't really go hand in hand. But I guess you found that out already

Nice power numbers! Should be fun!
