      For 7500 rpm redline, IECVA2's or even just an IECVA1 drop in intake cam with a stock exhaust will bring back a lot of mid range power and spool. Each step up in cams costs a few hundred rpm of spool...

      Leave the a/c compressor connected to the lines and just unbolt it and set it aside with the front clip already swung out of the way.

      Factory ECU does handle A/C request etc, and ESP. No abs. There will be fault codes for lost communications stored in most modules as well.

      With the AEM, I would consider a parallel installation....

      Cams are done, tested. Work great- see the big all motor numbers we posted a few weeks ago. However, they need some higher compression to really work, and they push the rpm band up significantly...

      FWIW:

      I once had to build a 1.8L 20v for a customer who was running in a class which limited displacement to that. The motor was the same specs we ~usually build but not stroked, just a forged...

      We get the whole gammut here from 110+ in the summer to -xx in the winter sometimes... Below 20 or 30 you'll definitely have audible slap from a 2618 built engine even with correct wall clearances...

      Yea, we are only doing 83mm x 92.8 at the moment. It's not a custom order situation but rather a "small production run".

      Ya, I recommend Mahle's for most builds. In fact we like them so much that we had a some custom made on a heavier duty forging, with a heavier duty wrist pin- so we can use them on bigger power...

      We may be able to accommodate that, but you WILL need a re-tune for this. I will figure out pricing for that on Monday.

      I would not recommend that. It would take me some testing to figure out what 91 octane will support with that high torque setup, probably less compression then with a SRI... We certainly wouldn't be...

      OK, finally... Some details

      Proposed kit increases the compression from under 10:1 to a full 12:1 which will operate nicely on 91 or 93. Gains are expected to be about 30hp over existing SRI...

      Stage 1 files for auto no problem... We do not recommend the stage 2 SRI setup for automatics because the rev limiter cannot be raised. :thumbup:
