Enthuza is working on the TDR remote mount craptastic setup, so I don't know what agreements he has to not work on other competitors setups. I will say he does many awesome exhausts. I had one on my NA for 6-8years or something and it was great. I shipped it off recently to another user on here who is enjoying it.

TDR is not a competitor really. We have a healthy standing relationship with Jay at the moment. However the remote mount setup will be a single batch thing from what I understand.

As for an exhaust system - we will produce our own complete, stainless V band exhaust system. I just need to get these kits fulfilled to clear my schedule for jigging.

P.S. You guys need to convince the Enthuza guy to make a version of his 3" exhaust for you guys with v-bands to have an easy bolt-on solution.
Thank you! It's truly flattering to hear you've purchased a vehicle specifically based on the quality of our kit. We have an oil filter adapter plate in the works to address our only hurdle with a high quality Setrab oil cooler kit. Stay tuned, this spring should be the start of some big things.

Awesome! Just please make proper use of Helmholtz chambers. No one likes drone.

I haven't done anything mechanical on my NC yet, so forgive my ignorance, but didn't Moto-East already make a oil filter plate? Or are you talking about something else entirely?

We will absolutely not be using a helmholtz chamber. Modern resonators are capable of drone control. If you ask me, a helmholtz chamber is a great fit on a vehicle with limited exhaust length or when aluminum or titanium are being used.

I believe they do. We'd like to improve on the concept by including the proper baffle shape on the engine block side. So keep an eye out for one of our own.

The MotoEast plate is basically a 1/2" plate with two 8AN tapped holes for oil feeds, and the four necessary holes to attach it to the block. You still have to relocate the filter yourself using whatever plumbing you like, and presumably tee or series plumb it into your oil cooler similarly using your own equipment.

My understanding is Bryan / Fab is working on an alternate method to relocate the filter AND get the external cooling connected all in the same plate. Hopefully

I think from my search of pimpy parts for these motors I found someone selling an oil filter housing that kept the filter there but had built in provisions for an oil cooler. I think it was part of one of the dry sump kits that put the pump inside the pan.

Alright guys, we've been working with Joe from Dynotronics to get a solid customer base tune to get you guys rolling. Very impressed with how this car has incrementally increased power with each adjustment.

This car is an absolute dream to drive. I don't have the words to describe how enjoyable this thing is. Perfect drivability, very quiet, super responsive and linear power delivery. We're on very low boost and it's a complete monster. Had the car out logging on Friday here in Michigan on Woodward Ave. If you aren't familiar with Woodward Ave, it's probably one of the most dense populations of performance cars cruising around each weekend and this thing took everyone by surprise..

One instance specifically comes to mind, we ran into a C6 Z06 and the owner flagged me down into a gas station after we pulled ahead of him by at least a car length from a 1st gear roll race. Seriously impressive power for the low boost levels we're running.

We're using the Dash Command OBD app for some easy to follow, on the fly monitoring and it recorded a peak horsepower estimate of 406whp. I thought this sounded a bit inflated so Joe reviewed the logs and calculated it's making around 392 based on airflow. I don't think we will push this factory bottom end much further and truthfully I can't imagine I'll want more with how manageable this thing is. Keep in mind we're running 285 drag radials in the rear.



I'm really looking forward to taking customers out in this car... I wouldn't be surprised if we converted every single passenger to a customer after a quick spin in this thing.

You should mention the exhaust you're using to get those power figures

I should have, it's our simple downpipe adapter, stock mid-pipe and some cheap aftermarket exhaust that the previous owner installed. Very quiet..

... Which is absolutely ludicrous; 400hp on a stock midpipe makes my head hurt.

I'm doing my best to beat you to the all-3"-turbo-back setup! I may end up beating you to the shrapnel-bomb-stock-block if I'm not careful

Are you freaking serious??

I will have to get a 6258 and run 10 psi to not blow the transmission to pieces on the track...

We need dyno plots and spool numbers STAT!

Just to note, you can adjust the pre-load on these wastegates to achieve under 10psi easily.

You'll probably beat me to the completed installation then :( Married + kids makes self installation progress at a much slower pace.

Really depends on Joe, he told me to expect up to 15 days for install if he doesn't have much in front of me. If it was not for work and losing access to the lift I always used, I would be spending all weekend and be done with it myself. But with Joes install I know he will do a good job and I will have a running car with a dyno plot in hand when I pick it up, so it works out I guess. I am just not a very patient person.

Some time next year after caging and all, I will be taking it back to him for a built 2.5 swap if all works out. I have some other small items that need to be taken care of first.
