As this will be a work in progress untill the Fat Lady sings on the Dyno.. I`ll try to get all the hard #s and Items that I have used along with the shops and people that have helped over the past year and some change to make this happen [IMG]http://**********************/smile/emthup.gif[/IMG] pictures to follow ... . . ..
      BTW here is a small list of the items that will be done/used to achieve 215whp ( fingers crossed ) [IMG]http://**********************/smile/emthup.gif[/IMG]

      Finally someone is going to build a motor. The last guy I saw on here try went to EIP to have the ECU tuning done, and needless to say nothing good ever came of that project. Cant wait to see how it turns out!!

      Do you (or will you) have a baseline dyno before you get too far in? Kudos to you for going NA - I'll be watching this one [IMG]http://**********************/smile/emthup.gif[/IMG]

      eventually you'll be curious as to how well it would flow some boost through those nice smooth ports just teasing
      great stuff so far [IMG]http://**********************/smile/emthup.gif[/IMG]

      Well..... I have the TT down pipe and a fully ported upper set of cast manifolds... which should be just as good for this application [IMG]http://**********************/smile/emthup.gif[/IMG]

      You have to think that it will be a bit more than 210 at least....because there have been a couple that have broke the 200 whp mark allready ( poterman and one other ) with just all of the bolt on`s.. soooooooooooo...... where I have varied from where they did not go is....... Adding the fully ported & polished head, Ported exhaust mainfolds, TT down pipe, TT cat, R32 T-Body..and Going to the Schricks later on..
      So with the 5 extra things I think that my goal is reachable
      But thanks for all of the comments so far!!! [IMG]http://**********************/smile/emthup.gif[/IMG]

      Maybe I missed something in Bakber's thread on the R32 TB - did he get that working without custom programming? Is the GIAC flash going to work properly with it? I remember him talking about possibly something custom from C2 or Unitronic...
