talked with my builder today. For a bottom end rebuild to SAFELY build early torque they wanted a HUGE amount of $.
So awaiting a quote for their flex-fuel kit, ELH and up-pipe.
Thanks for the info everybody
Thread never quite got there cause your never going to have much torque until after your turbo spools - and nothing you will realistically do is going to change that "much" - even if our bottom end would hold up. You add power where it already exists - particularly at the high end where the stock engine runs out. If you add that much power you're probably spending that 'HUGE" amount and are still not planning on the torque you desire.
