    Very cool build! I love seeing different things. I'm very interested to see how this turns out. What are your power goals? This setup will surely get you where ever your going, I know that. Sound performance did over 1000whp with twin 6262's on their 350Z, and you have 6 more cylinders and almost 2 liters more. Good luck OP can't wait to see the finished result.
    Thanks!! Honestly I am looking for quick spool and 9 sec's at 130+...LOL...Not sure how much power I need but don't care as long as it nets me 9's. I think I have to be above 750rwhp or close to 800 to get me to the 9's. Car weights around 4100-4200 lbs, it will go on a diet as well.

    Do you know if their set up was laggy?, what RPM did they see full boost on?. I know we have discussed this but the V12's have terrible heads. Its a shame that all the 1.8L out there have superb flowing head and these V12's dont. I will have to do something about that. LOL

    I'm interested in how much power he makes as well. No one has really pushed these Mercedes V12'and that is a shame. HUGE untapped potential sitting in there.
    Tuning is the downfall of such limits on these motors. It is so limiting.

    It was very laggy iirc. They car was used primarily as a dyno queen/drag car, so power under the curve didn't matter so much. I'm sure you'll be able to reach your power goal easily though. The good thing about turbos is they force your engine to be efficient, so hopefully your restrictive heads won't be hurt you as much.

    In what sense? Is it difficult to tune with different turbos?

    The torque limiters in the ECU if not lifted properly will throw the car in limp mode every time it sees X amount of Boost, don't quote me on that. The SL built by Speedriven with aftermarket turbos is still having difficulties with the software. I don't know if they got it squared away but it is a pain. They are the ones to come and tune my car as well since they have experience with these types of projects.

    Well I am shooting for 1/4 mile strips, Mile races and drag races, not much of a circuit racer. Thx!

    Well if anyone can solve them it would seem to be him.

    If you trust him to tune your setup and he is capable of it then I definitely respect that.

    Thanks Gents!! You have no idea how i am going thru this...went to shop yesterday and spoke to Marcin last night, we are waiting for Block tuner hardware to come in and he probably will not have it until probably friday which means i will not have until monday or so. I am so anxious to get this thing running and tuned i am going blind.

    sticky- I will send you media once she is up and running. Thanks!

    Sorry guys been so busy...LOL

    I have not seen the car, according to the shop, they are ready to roll with everything finished by this week. I sent ECU to speedriven so they could do some fixing on their part this will facilitate them with tuning & the larger injectors. ECU and Block tuners should be mailed today. As soon as it hits my hand we are scheduling dyno time. I am heading to the shop tomorrow to take some more pictures. Stay posted.

    Agent Zero has approached...

    Well these are being installed right as we speak. Injectors, Speedriven Block tuner and ECU with a modified file to start her rolling. Heading to the shop immediately after work, if no complications I should have a video tonight,

    Think I have enough injectors...Click here to enlarge

    If all goes well, tomorrow night dyno sessions. Click here to enlarge

    What size injectors are these? What are all the upgrades you have done to the fuel system?

    Resized the pics for you by clicking attach inline, it does it automatically.
