turn around? Haha could do the whole thing in a weekend, or it can take me 3 months depends on how comfortable I am with getting the specs off the original oil pump.

This weekend I am going to grab my textbooks and start researching materials we are going to want.

And splittime sounds good! (I'll want the motor back though )

Well its splitime's car well put the motor in. What i would like to do is run stock and beat on it. And then try it with a boosted motor (which mine should be by then) I want around 250hp at least. To be honest Im not sure how this is going to work. Maybe ill just put the motor in my car while i work on the turbo. IDK, im a little brain dead to figure out the best way to do this is.

right, splitime, i confeused the two...we should test this in a high HP configuration but im sure no one wants to experiment on an built motor they spent thousands on you know
i may be willing to try to it closer to 300whp once im boosted on the motor i have in the car now, but not until my other motor is already built, but then that defeats the purpose of it for me...what the hell, i'll guess we can wait and see what happens at 250 first

ill be pulling the gears saturday probably, ill have some time im sure
ill give you a call

I'm fine pushing the limits of the stock motor as far as Loki wants to take it. It'll be his motor afterall. There is a dyno less than 2 miles away from my house... SVS (big turbo viper guys), 100bucks/hr, after that 25bucks/15min. I'd put my car back on auto insurance to test this stuff and get my lazy *** in gear to tune.

Loki... do i hafta give it back? . It'll work out well, gives me an excuse to touch up the engine bay and really work on my wire tuck and full bay cleanup. You still live sorta close to me right? Wasn't it 355/north ave area? Or is that work.

Right around the corner, I just moved away from north/gary condos and live just another 10min down the road.

Come over after the holidays and we can plan this crap. Heck, if we are truly serious... we can start just pulling my setup.

We can do NA testing too, I still have the stock header/exhaust down at my buddies warehouse... I can grab it before its scrapped... I don't see a reason to not just start turbo'd though.

Dont do anything yet. Until I have gears in hand that I feel we should test, lets all go about our daily lives.
