Hey all.

Well it's been too long waiting, but the time has come. I've got all my ducks in a row, and i'm going ahead with the build. :icon_twis

The motor is coming out tomorrow and being sent to the builders, and the trans arrived yesterday. Heads are on the way as well.

I'll post up a list of mods either tonight or tomorrow. Also, i'll be throwing up as many pics as I can as well as we go.

Keep your eyes peeled:)

I'll get a mod list and a few pics up tonight. Andrew, i'm having the motor work done by Armstrongs (A & J Automotive), and the install done by Larry Legere @ Portland Automotive & Speed. He does beautiful custom work and is really anal.

I'll be sure to post up the mod list later today! :)

I used to have it like this, it was ridiculous:

The outlet facing down of course.

Thanks, I got rid of the electric cutout because it was leaking too much when closed, I had to hit the button sometimes to kinda make it close better but after a while it would open up again just enough to irritate me. It was an older style butterfly valve. Later I was going to use a cheap 8PSI wastegate solenoid which would keep it shut with its spring and open it only under boost but I never went that route.

Now back to your thread, we want more pics :)

I was on the fence over the Cutout, as I know a lot of them will pass. I had heard good things about the "Race Ready" kit, so decided to go for it anyway. Worst case scenario I pull it.

I'll get a few more pics up later of the DIFF & Chain :)

I have a set of quad rotor Whipples. Ironically the snout is damn near the perfect length. The problem is they are 2 seperate chargers that sit on one engine. One on each head basically so I can't use them :( Gotta look for more power elsewhere and the MP112 taint a bad start.

The "kit" was all custom done quite some time ago. The snout support, TB adaptor, LIM adaptor plate, IC Core etc.

It would take a bit of fabbing for sure. Not too sure if they would still be interested, but try getting a hold of Todd @ Intense (or John) and they might able to lead you in the right direction.
