    Everything looks wonderful! 1.5 years is a long time to wait to hit the dyno, I can imagine how eager you are! Keep us updated with results. What BOV are you going with? What are your power/tq goals?

    I'm also eager to hear your review on the GearX 1-4 set!

    Thanks man! Between holidays and having 2 kids, it definitely pushes things back. lol

    I'm using a tial 50

    We're gonna pretty much max out the turbo and sit back and see what it makes. I don't expect less than 700whp but will be happy with whatever it spits out.
    I was really lucky enough to have some really good friends of mine employed at T1 Race Development over the last few years and was kinda grandfathered in from years of being a customer. So Tony is willing to tune it for me again. Thank goodness!

    I cant speak on personal exp of gear x just yet but i can say Jeff at Gear X is top notch with customer service. Solid dude and very helpful.

    The last setup i ran in this ep3 was
    86.5mm k20, stock sleeves, turbo tuff and je's 10:1. Bc cams and a t3 6262
    Made nearly 600whp @24lbs





    Ended up lifting the head. And during a compression chk while diagnosing what happened. I had a rare malfunction that led to a rebuild.
    While removing the quick disconnect hose from the compression tester hose that threads in the spark plug hole; one of the detent balls from the quick disconnect fitting on the tester fell out and into a different cylinder and i was unaware. So when i turned the engine over to check the next cylinder the ball put divets into the cylinder head and piston while also damaging the wrist pin and rod. FmL right?
    I filed a claim with the tool maker and they cut me a $5200 check to help with replacing everything! Lucky me!

    And before all that i tested the limit of a stock block k20a hahhaha
