Nahh, I have the meth kit but it's not installed. Lookin for a buyer as well (Kirt is scurred)

Actually just a CBE, Testpipe, TMIC on the way, boost tubes, Turbo inlet, Intake and lots of love and attention. I just hit 102K on it as well. There is a link on youtube when I was at COBB in Plano (can't get on there here at work). Calvin said he was impressed and blamed it on my wheels and tires for hitting 331wtq as well.

I expect to hit about 350whp and 400wtq after I get the pump and DP <-- Just want to do these together for safety reasons as this is my DD.

These cars have minimal drivetrain loss, I think 10% max.

^ This issue has been debated, but I'm convinced it's more like 20% (+/-)

Think about it: all-wheel-drive transmissions have more moving parts than fwd or rwd only cars... more moving parts = more mass to move + more friction --> loss of power. The horsepower/torque numbers measured at the wheels will be significantly lower than the hp/tq numbers measured at the crank.
