Guys I spend so much more time on this site I decided to move my build thread over here to share. I've made some changes to my set-up and will be posting more updates and photos soon.






I decided on an MMR 900 Shortblock. ARP Headstuds with MMR/Felpro MLS Gaskets. Cant see it from the pics but also had the pistons notched.





Sent my Patriot Stage II Heads to Modular Headshop. Along with some Bullet Stg II Turbo Cams to be degreed.






Splytsecond decided to go a different route with his car...I lucked out and picked up 04Ryan's old Turbo setup.










After 10 months of researching, saving, and waiting engine and turbo are in the bay!

After a lot of debating I decided to go with a return style system. Glenns and Lethal Performance were my top two choices. I couldnt have made a bad decision but, I went with Lethal...mainly because I wanted the pumps in the tank keeping things a little quieter (I'm getting old :eek:). Pumps are Walbro GSS342's

Heres some photos of the underside. Hotspot in powercoat is from being run with an open downpipe. My plan is to swap out intercooler with a single sided one (Treadstone or Hellion) and get rid of this crossover pipe and add an electric or V band cutout just aft of K-member.

Can't go wrong with MM stuff. Everything fit perfect.

Finally ready to drive. Brent at Dynotune Performance in Virginia Beach took care of me with an initial tune to break in.

Here's the dyno graph. Only saw 16lbs for a flicker or two. Pretty sure the light wastegate spring (8lbs) and factory Saleen/Borla Mufflers were the culprit. Electronic boost controller, Heavier WG spring and mufflers should help. Overall really happy. 144WHP over my last setup and I'm just getting started.

Went with an Eboost2. Pretty easy to use. Gate pressure option seems to help it spool better.
