Second, I'm gonna need new head studs. My head flanges are 3/8" thick so ill probably just need studs that are that much longer. Any suggestions?
the heater element needs to stay plugged in or your waterpump will stay on wayyyy longer than necessary on shut down. I kept mine in that part of the pcv hose, and cut the heater element housing piece down so it was round and then ran a hose from it to the turbo intake filter. It keeps your pcv system in tact and keeps the heater element functioning. Pm me if you want pics for better details. "

No being negative, we have 110, E85 and Methanol to substitute currently, and we all know that VTT (soon to be released) and FuelIt have fueling solutions for the future. Planning ahead is always a good idea. "

Meth exists as does race gas, both of which work great. "

" Photobucket is your friend for showing massive amounts of pics in one thread. I have the app on my phone, so I can click upwards of 30 pics at a time and upload them straight to PB. Email them to m5james if you'd like and then I'll upload them onto my PB...send EVERYTHING because I need to decide if I wanna make everything I have work or attempt to start from scratch before I have the SC send out for rebuild.

BMS has 3 single turbo development cars. I hope all are running at the next runway event for some side by side comparisons! The 135i with the FFTEC 5862 TS "reining champ" will have its hands full. "

I keep hearing stuff like this regarding the clutch companies. I don't get it.

Spec puzzles me as well. A lot of guys run their clutch yet they are super quiet. "

Group.america replied to the thread 2014 Porsche 991 Turbo 10.8 Quarter Mile run.
" So it goes 60-125 mph in about 8 seconds if the stock 0-60 mph on the Turbo is 2.8 or so

Really good low down torque and gearing then meh... given the PDK and 1.5 sec 60ft this is still lower than I would expect as far as trap

Great for stock yes, but above 60 mph hmm "
