Can you tell us a bit about what is needed for the manifold install?
I'm running a standalone. So, I just got rid of all the emission stuff and went with the basics.

The intercooler core is 24X8X3.5

Got the car together. Dynoed 474whp at 27psi.

Beat some modded vettes, beat several cars with stoker motors on spray....haven't even lost a race yet. Of course, there's just not a lot of street cars out there that's going to beat it.

Nice Mike. I assume you've already installed the 3.63 gears; how about that? BTW, any clue on 1/4 mile times?

Saludos,

low 10's for sure...haven't tracked it. But, I am demolishing flat 11 second cars. I don't drive the car hard though, mainly because I have so much money tied into it that I don't want to break anything.

The 3.6's made the car so much better. But, Yet again I have put together something and decided to go another direction...

I love the setup, but I am going to be pulling the motor/tranny/rear end out so I can move in another direction. Which direction is it that I am going to go? Let's just say, I'll still be able to post about Turbos...but maybe not for the BP motor.

Someone buy my stuff, I have it priced to sell quick.

So what do you do for a living?
Are you a student?
Drug lord?

So why are you pulling the BP?
SBC?
