      Honestly I wish I knew, I'm trying to get it on a dyno to see and up the boost making sure everything is running correctly. Can't exactly do that on New York roads

      My math might be off, I figure 360-370+ only 1 bar but I held of a E39 M5 on the Palisades Pkwy on my way to West Point 2 weeks ago. That left the factory rated @ 400hp before his CAI and what ever else he didn't wanna tell me because he go done in but a VW. Eventho that was a power to weight not to mention a FWD vs. RWD in my opinion the car is a Beast.

      To be considered: Healthy VR6, new rings, cams etc... 9:1 headspacer, Precision 6262, United Motorsports 630cc setup, Aeromotive 340lph pump & Aeromotive regulator. Certain things ported can't reveal extensive details. Nevertheless the car is healthy spins tires in EVERY gear, I wanna turn it up see and feel the potential but there isnt enough decent road around here for me to do it.
