Totally stock aside from tune. The new 70mm throttle body is going in this week and will be covering all the parts install next Fast Friday!

Re: No Turbo? No Problem! Part 2. It's FF#36!

We're back from the track today and have some updated numbers from our recent testing. Bear in mind all our current gains are from nothing more than ECU tuning and a bit of cam timing...

Re: Fast Friday #34: No Turbo? No Problem!

As for the throttle body, we're using a slightly larger than stock unit and mounting it directly under the ME7 turbo inlet manifold so we can reduce piping length and take advantage of the ram air effect of our intake. We'll have plenty of pics and vids coming up as we move through the project so th...

Re: Spark Plugs: Copper vs Iridium vs Platinum FF#32

Yes they should fit all the red block motors as well but I honestly haven't tried it yet. If you're interested let me know, we'll get you setup with some consideration to pricing :)

Re: Spark Plugs: Copper vs Iridium vs Platinum FF#32

How long do they last and why don't they sell these as normal use plugs? It's a side gapped plug that was designed that way from the get go. I like it.
