Pure awesome, how are you going to fix the head lifting? I thought you already had arp studs in there.
I'm assuming that the belt fix is going to be a stronger tensioner?
Edit: also, where is your valve cover?

very impressive gabe.
as for the belt, we had that issue on the road rabbit NA rabbit...we took a mk3 VR6 tensioner pulley the had edges on it. trimmed the mk5 tensioner down a bit and it never came off again. but i'm sure IE can build you one better then stock. thats just what we did quick.

so, with all issues solved, +9 or 10k rpms, we can expect +1000 AWD HP?
also, i wanted to ask: what turbo size a/r etc are you using? when does it start to spool and when does it reaches max/full spool?
already know what i want, just wanted to know what it came with. i assume a large journal bearing t3 or something of the sort. if it comes with a ballbearing, that's awesome.
i already know what i want to use to utilize the engines performance and get the gains for the type of powerband desired based on the comp map vs engine,etc.
though it isn't my car, it will be awesome to have a very stealthy 2.5T running around.
especially on pro-maf tune.

jesu joy of man's desiring... that thing sounds CRUEL.
i'll be happy with something half as nasty and respectably streetable, but is it seriously nice to see (and hear) what these little bastards can do. even happier to see it built from the same molasses 140ish whp '07 foundation i'm on! far above and beyond any 2.slow, and with the reliability of these engines you can score a clean block for the cost of a couple rough nights on the town. i'm dead set on building my gal a terminator heart once she turns 150k, and not one mile more.
