      I'd stick with oem even if they fail ever couple years on built motors. I had a few fail and they still kept belt in place. I even did a trackday with a leaking oem hydraulic tensioner.

      Just to reply to the iat while racing I recorded minimum 20c and maximum 31c once I got up to race temperature. That's a little better than close to 60c iat with old IC. WHAT a difference it made.. ...

      1.7bar and 25psi seems to be the golden level with my motor. Any more boost and it gets HOT in a hurry. Any less and temperature is same same.

      Well, we don't know if they will warrant it yet. As for backing down on the power just won't happen. I'm still at 25psi the engine just breathe a lot better making more power.

      idk. The clutch is rated much higher than what I put through it so based on what CM say it SHOULD be good. Let's see what CM have to say about this.

      Hopefully they stand by their product.

      This is all I got. When I start my hotlap I can see the lambda is going rich above 7k indicating the clutch starts to slip. 40sec later it break down.

      I'll keep an eye on the iat tomorrow during racing.

      About the weight I think Arnold might be better to ask as I didn't weight it. It didn't feel much heavier than the old one.

      New IC is fantastic. I have 6c IAT rise during a pull where I had 30+c rise before.

      Sounds like they don't know how to calibrate their own dyno. Go somewhere else and re-test.
