Just change the wastegate spring for less boost if you plan to run it on a stock DD. Overkill = yes. Badass = **** yes.

You are correct about dialing down the boost. It can be used on a stock bottom end daily driver, it would be less than optimal but it would work.

I should have mentioned that a/r is. 63. The down pipe is of course 3". It looks like a friggen water main.

Tim and I corresponded for quite some time before we put this together. The car was going to run NASA and be a dedicated track car. I was going to use e85 and wanted to make sure I could pull out of the corners quickly. With my original setup I ate mustangs camaros etc in the corners but once they dropped the hammer coming out of the corners I lost ground to them. Sooo, I wanted to spool quickly and was willing to give up top end to get it. I could outbreak them going into corners but had to be on their *** to do that. Anyway, that was the plan.

Again, I took some of my ques from Savington's build and listened to Tim's advice. It may not be perfect for your purposes but it was specifically built for mine. Tim was proud of this setup and when I saw the workmanship I new why. He makes crazy nice stuff. He is also a good guy.

Arg. Sorry you could not use the setup. Silly, silly, SILLy low price for this.

The chances of another new kit coming up are, umm, like 0.01%, cause I sorta aren't doing that no more.

Super slick setup with all the options except for drilled inconel bolts. I would recommend the new owner have that done if Steve didn't yet. full vband GT3071R with fancy tial compressor housing and tial's turbine housing. I don't have the specs on my home computer to know the A/R on the turbine, I think it was .63, which is similar to the .86 for you T2 turbine people.

Don't work with A/C or P/S. It will fit the NA chassis, it was built on my '92 1.8 miata.

It is not the direct MSM replacement, I never built one of those. This is the baller original style ABSURDflow manifold. Same as Savington, Hustler, thesnowboarder...etc.

Genesplicer: I didn't know who bought Savington's old manifold, good to know. I have a spreadsheet of who has what, now i can update it.

Good luck with the sale

Yeah, Sav hooked me up with the AF setup #1, can't wait to put everything together - still waiting on more parts to come in.

So do your setups have a life-time warranty?

Deposit sent! Thanks Steve...I'll put it to good use! Now if I can keep from destroying transmissions, the last one only made it 2 test sessions. Guess I should have had the boost gauge working?

Good job on picking up one of the best setups on the market. The first thing you need to do when you get the setup is get the CHRA bolts drilled and safety wired before you take it out on track.
