      Can't comment on the rod-conversion stuff because we haven't used any of it, but the cable stuff works pretty well for us.

      Not in North America--it definitely can be done in a "street style" fwd car though.

      The Brazilians have gone really quick with 8v stuff, both counter-flow and cross-flow-- mainly hot rod and...

      Supertech makes the TT springs. It is rumored Schrick makes the Autotech springs. I believe all will work well in your application.

      Lol, no problem.

      28-29 psi-- would have been more but the 60-1 gets unhappy above that boost level, and is one of the things I have now changed on the car, along with the intercooler and head. A...

      Correct, 4 gears. It has a CHE trans with AP spool. I shifted at 7800 rpm (yes it is making power there). The slicks grow about 1" on the top end, so run a 23" tire in your calcs and you'll see I...

      It was down on power as you can see by the trap, so there is still more to come. We know what to address...
