Good point, I was thinking of doing an aluminum rod setup with my current 84mm block down the road but I'm going to keep it as a spare and buy another aluminum rod block. Always good to have a back up spare.

Not feeling the Strange Engineering coilovers? Double Adjustable and you can create custom valving, they also allow you to control rebound and compression.

Interesting, didn't know you were planning on street duty with your setup. You may want to rethink going with the KS Rear End Trailing Kit setup and KS drag brake setup you where thinking about.

Why? You're better off with the ARP version, not just some titanium alloy, if you're trying to strengthen the hold of the exhaust manifold with the turbocharger and want to avoid added "Bracing".

If you don't mind the added bracing, Tony The Tiger from Dynamotorsport had this for his Front Mount turbo setup




I'm trying to remember the company that made it, or if they did. My memory slips me. Contact him by e-mail or PM him on the forum.

A quick Dyno Session of the car. Notice the Airflow speed sensor mounted to the compressor cover inlet.

If you're running a top mount you really don't need a brace, I run factory studs as well.

I'm sorry you're not feeling all that fuzzy. Because here, we are more technically-critically oriented than the other forums, and tend to be emotionless.. "Love" has little to do with it. We believe that the Function becomes part of the Form.
