Exclamation **MY new 18g stage4...PICS!!!**

I have just hit 1,500 miles on this set up and I love it! I went straight from a stage 2 with Cobb AccessPort and the power difference is more than words can say. I have yet to discover the full potential of this turbo as I have only driven it on my conservative map (22psi, 303 whp). It was dynoed at 332whp on 100 octane/ 24psi, because I told them to stop at 330 and not brake my car! The funny part was, they stopped at 4000 rpm!!! :eek: You see, that is right about when the turbo spools meaning the tune was good for probably in the area of 375+whp. I have plans to build a 2.5 block over the winter, as well as the strongest 5 speed I can make. There are a lot of people DESTROYING their motors and trannys with the power this turbo puts out. When all is said and done I hope to tune the car for 110 octane+ and run 24-26 psi, should be good for 400 whp+ ? Enjoy the pics!

BTW, mods for this setup include:

Forced Performance 18G turbo
Hyperflow FMIC
PE 650cc injectors
Walbro fuel pump
Perrin short ram
XX Tuning header/ uppipe
TurboSmart plumb-back BOV
Defi BF gauges, link, and pod
UTEC & switch

For refference, I am also using a XX-tuning header & uppipe combo (I highly reccomend), as well as a full Helix turbo-back exhaust.
