has anyone actually confirmed hp gains after porting our s/c? i know carlos at techo offers this mod but no one has posted the gains.

I really didn't want to do cams just yet so I was really leaning toward option 1. I will let you know what I decide to do.

Awesome update! I have to admit that I have no idea what you're talking about on at least 65% of the post....but interesting to read nonetheless!

As far as the next mod goes....i'd forget options 1-4 and focus strictly on putting that power to the ground. I'd imagine that it's not easy to do....but getting some more rubber on the road like Polk said (*EDIT* AND MIKEBNA )would be the way to go.

I absolutely can't wait for videos and sound clips. If you get a chance....do one from in the car while you're taking off.

Can't wait!!

I forsee traction being an issue throught the project. I'll start with putting some drag radials in the back and relocating the trailing arms.

How are you getting the traction issue under control after all this?

The blower has been removed and shipped to Carlos at Tecno to be ported. I'll be able to post some actual gains from the porting shortly.

Already have them from when I did the JDM bolt-ons. One of the few things I kept. Was thinking about upgrading them, but I'll see once the car is on the dyno.

Well no pics yet and I still haven't received picked up the car yet. We did get back the blower and we saw 0 gain. Thats right 0. We made the same power we made before we ported the blower. We also upgraded the mid-pipe. Apparently the x-pipe that comes with the turbo kit was only 2 1/4. As you know for this amount of power thats way too small. We switched it for a kooks 3" x-pipe for a GT500. So from the turbo's back you have 3" exhaust. To ensure the x-pipe fits perfectly I had to get some custom work done to the exhuast flanges that install to the turbo's. We had an expert welder come in and mock everything up. Looks really good. Should have some new dyno numbers here shorly. Don't worry I get some pics up soon. (I know I know I've been saying that for a while.)

Maybe the throttle body is the bottle neck? Have you upgraded it yet?

We have a modified GT500 throttle body on the car now. Once we get the exhaust on and the tune right we'll try a custom made dual 85mm throttle body. Car will be dynoed today/tomorrow. Please feel free to email me at francisco.brocatto@lmco.com for pics. I have a couple, but I've been too busy to post them up.
