Upgrade to MS3 and the closed loop EBC will work amazingly. Makes it so easy to change boost levels. Once you have dialed in the PID numbers all you have to do is go in and change what you want your target KPA to be and it hits it and holds.

BTW everytime i see your screen name i think about Shawn of the Dead
In the USA we use AKI octane rating which is dervied from (RON+MON)\2. Alot of other Nations only use the RON rating for gasoline. You can see where people can get confused by this. So if they are running 99 octane, I believe UK runs by ron ratings, that would mean 99 octane in the UK is nearly same as 93 AKI octane in the US

Paul's car has 297whp and he uses a 2860rs if I'm not mistaken. Phil said the Begi Intake Mani was worth around 20whp.


He would have to run a lot of boost to get there, 20+ psi. I would rather get a 2871, he wouldn't lose any spool and he could run less boost.

I would just stick some injectors in it, id 1000ccs and a fuel pump then try to sorce some e85 u can prolly hit your power goals with e85 on a stock motor for a lil while, forge the bottom end with like 8:1s or so and keep your small turbo. If you cant get e85 i would stick a 3071 on there so u can run around on 14psi still making your goals on normal pump gas.

A 3071 is major over kill for his goals.

How exactly does E85 change the strength of the stock rods and allow them to withstand higher cylinder pressures...ergo force?

Well, he's right.

The engine would last... for a little while.
