Hopefully all goes well. I was looking into Holley too but my parts guy highly recommended for me to take a look into the MS3 Pro. I think I'll go that route after looking into it and hearing some so-so things about the Holley stuff.

Maybe took into a Mach 1 or 03/04 Cobra ECU. They have a faster processor. Might help you reach just a little bit further.

Nice build you have going here. Should be a fun ride once completed.
Thanks Its going pretty smooth after today t looks like ill be done in less then a week.

Yes I am on a stock ECU

SSG Pate Just an update on my ongoing build.. I finally decided to build my own Twin Turbo kit ive got the majority of it done and now im just finishing up the downpipes and exhaust. Ive got some clean up to do but things will wrap up in less then 2 weeks.. I have a Dyno APPT at the end of the month.

Thank You Im waiting right now on the Dyno and in between that upgrading my fuel Hat setup to some pretty big ass pumps.

SSG Pate Not much going on at the moment I did a little remote tuning to 12PSI and calle dit a day until I get on the dyno with a live tuner.

I will say that 12PSI on my twins feels stronger then 17-18 PSI on my single

currently Im waiting on my Dyno session at the end of May in the meantime The car is running and ready i will be installing a new fuel tank and a new fuel pump.

I plan on capping my car off at around 800RWHP since i am getting the VIBE that the stock ECU might get me into trouble if i go any higher but if my tuner feels safe and likes what he sees ill be taking it wherever we feels safe. I

new things i like about my build is my oil filter location as its pretty sweet and I am glad I ran my PS fluid through my radiator" the old Transmission cooler side of my Radiator"

I'm not sure what thier setup was, I am aware the rods are weak but I thought the hypeutectic pistons were strong just very brittle as in they can't handle detonation as in at all lol.

Also the cast crank I know can handle good amount power but it's the RPM people are spinning them too, it's just not as strong like a forged or billet crank would be and with hard launches with lots of power and revving to the moon your going to create stress cracks on the cast crank, you can't escape the fact that it is cast, I'm just wondering how long those cranks will last in the 8k+ realm.

Or the piston skirt cracking off and ending up in your oil pan. That is 100% pressure/power and rpm related.
he was showing me some dyno sheets, Petes performance in NH, It may be his dyno jet reads high I dont know, but if you have cams relieving pressure and I dont know what type of fuel they were using maybe e85, I dont see why not. Not sure how long it will last but its been done.

Hell theres guys spinning the factory cast crankshaft to 8K+ RPM dont know how long that will last but these guys are doing, which amazes me.

Cams definitely help. With cams a lot of guys are running safely at 430 rwhp. Meth or E85 helps. And the type of dyno helps. STD always rates a motor higher. If I use my STD dyno I'm running just shy of 400 rwhp on 8.9 psi.
yea some sort of cam profile with stock heads and stock rotating assembly, you lose some hp through the IRS compare to the LRA so that could also explain the power difference. I am running HP292 cams which are not ideal but gave me a considerable gain in power.

I would love to see where I would be with E85 I just don't feel like upgrading everything to run it lol.
