Once I can get an opportunity to pull it out of the car I will be making a build thread. I plan on redoing pretty much the entire motor which as we know is :baller:.Expecting pictures of the tear down. Poor boss.
Well, what i said applies to most regular cars i think, lol. (Some exotic stuff sounds wicked with straight headers).
Not alot of people are running my setup, i think its one of the best/better sounding combos for the platform. The catback is pricey tho.

LOL. So have you decided what build option you are going with? Or are you waiting until you tear it down and find the problem?Once I can get an opportunity to pull it out of the car I will be making a build thread. I plan on redoing pretty much the entire motor which as we know is :baller:.
Good news though is I have deep pockets, bad news is I have little T-Rex arms so I can't reach anything in those pockets so I will be eating Ramen for the next seven years because of it.
Im probably going to reload the non-cam tune tomorrow, i just had to try it out. Go o/r with those comps man, you wont regret it, very sick exhaust note.Can't wait to get my o/r x installed, I'll be running the same setup minus the cam lope tune.
Also just ordered my sct sf4!! As far as I know I'll be heading back to the states this upcoming Sunday, I'm so excited to get back and drive. Here's what I'll have to install:
McLeod lightened steel flywheel
McLeod RXT clutch
SR stainless steel clutch line
Magnaflow o/r x (already have magnaflow competition catback isntalled)
SR lowering springs
J&M panhard bar
20x8.5 and 20x10 AMR wheels (going to get them powdercoated white)
255/35 nitto 555's for the front and 275/35 invo's for the rear[/URL]
I post a lot of my air refueling videos on my instagram account, feel free to check them out @NJ_5OH
Wow, on a 2012 those numbers are way stout for the mods you have. Im hoping/thinking my car would make around that with Intake, o/r X, full catback and tune. Very nice numbers you got there.got it dyno tuned at Revolution Automotive by Adam Browne, made 412/395 with the only mods being Pypes long tube headers and catted x-pipe, Im pretty happy with those numbers
Damn thats a good idea. Im probably just gonna paint mine, i cant decide what color yet, but i have ideas.
I agree it sounds great! I had the Magnaflow competition axle back with stock everything else and it even sounded good but the drone got to me so I switched to the Roush. I still have the Magnaflow axle back and I'm gonna get a o/r x pipe soon so I'll try it again and see. My plan was to sell it after I bought the Roush axle back but I couldn't bring myself to do it it sounds so deep and mean. Do you have any drone with your setup?
5.2 shortblock from either RGR (I have heard they make them with Darton Sleeves but I have to ask either Aaron or Eric about that) or Livernois 5.2 shortblock and maybe heads if the budget allows. I'm looking at a set of MMR Road Racing cams but I am waiting for Darren (darreng505) to finish his build to decide what cams I want to go with and then figure out what kind of springs to go with after that. He is expecting or probably hoping about 540 horsepowers and 400-410 torques from what I have read with those cams but I am interested in his driving impressions (although he has a gutted road racing car now) and to see what the power curve will look like compared to say the Comp Stage 3 cams, and a set of Kooks Long Tubes of the 1 7/8ths variety with an O/R H-pipe and probably into some GT500 mufflers to quite it down just a bit.LOL. So have you decided what build option you are going with? Or are you waiting until you tear it down and find the problem?
Car would lope, then rev up to 1500rpms then back to idle and lope, if you pressed the gas and it went anywhere above idle it would completely shut off, tried to pull it out of the garage and almost rolled into the vette and the $70,000.00 truck parked behind me because it scared me when it died and started rolling couldn't hit the brakes fast enough.What do u mean?
Good job! The way the cones were set up it looked a lot smaller than when I went. I do need to make it back over there
Di you reaet KAM and let it relearn idle for a good 10 minutes with and without a/c on?Car would lope, then rev up to 1500rpms then back to idle and lope, if you pressed the gas and it went anywhere above idle it would completely shut off, tried to pull it out of the garage and almost rolled into the vette and the $70,000.00 truck parked behind me because it scared me when it died and started rolling couldn't hit the brakes fast enough.
Not too bad for your first autocross. Plenty of work to do though especially with the gas pedal and slalom timing and looking ahead. You'll get there soon enough!
