Good luck with the tune. I agree with User1029's comments. I originally read the comment and only just checked the user name....no wonder I agree. He has an awesome car that has been extremely reliable given the hp that it is putting out.

Your crank and rods are overdone but won't cause any issues other than taking up cash that could have been spent on the heads.

Are you going e85? Put in some bigger injectors and have some fun.

Soooo my timing belt tensioner failed from sitting around for so long, valves touched and now heads are back off. My string of bad luck continues.... Just ordered bc cams, Ferrara valve springs ,retainers and valves. Will be pnp heads and back together soon! Little annoyed but this problem has its benefits... More power! With all these mods what should I be expecting? What boost should I run? Anything else I should do while the engine is back out? Any help advice is appreciated?

And I won't be going e85 unfortunately until a few more available places, there is one place and it's about 100km away to fill up
