Default Stroked-n-turboed NC

I don't know the specifics, seems the owner didn't know what exactly was put in either. Hopefully he'll post sometime and get all the specifics then...

What I DO know... 2.2L stroked running a BW (didn't know series or running psi), has some amazing torque, has issues with melting the VC, battled a coolant leak on track day. I'll try to get details next time I bounce into him. Sorry for the tease. Pics...

Very disorienting those pics. What a mess of hoses, pipes and wires. I guess that's new cars though.

What a clusterfuck under the hood. Wow.
That power/torque looks delish though

I've seen build pics of this car before. The manifold collector is ******* AWESOME!!!

The EFR looks like a 6258 or 6758

I have not looked under the hood of many NCs, but is that the only place a turbo will fit in the bay?

There was photos of this build on this forum already somewhere where "we" predicted a melted valvecover amongst other things. Probably in the random pics/vids thread. Good idea nevertheless. Deserves it's own thread.

Saw him at Road Atlanta a couple weeks ago when he melted the valvecover. I'd think he would have a better soluition to heat on the VC...
