    Anyone doing AR setup?

    I was doing the AR setup back in 05 when Dave just started making them. I was going to couple it with a CRME motor with stage 2 heads. Then MP intake system, FMIC, and snow performance alcohol injection. Never got to put it together though. I ended up buying a house and needed the money to invest in it. So I sold everything . Now I have aquired a new SC but wont be doing such drastic mods to it. I was wondering if anyone made good numbers with it and what setup are they using?

    Installed a 2.0 AR kit this summer. Still tuning on it and never got to dyno this season. Did get to a track a week or so ago. too cold for good traction so best was a 13.449 @ 111.59 with the appalling 2.377 60 foot time. Started at 275hp before the swap. Gonna guess at a good mid 300hp number now. I'll run it on a dyno in the spring. here is when I first started it.

    Mike I'm sure you have much more to go there. I cant wait till I have my current setup going optimum. It hauls on the highway even with barely any timing. How much boost?

    I've been having trouble logging it. last time I saw a number it was 19psi but I think the calibration was off on the auxbox as I was mucking with it to try and get it to talk to binary editor.

    AR 1.7 here. I picked up 100 RWHP and over a second in the 1/4 mile. Love it!

    1.7L AR here also, saw 300rwhp on a stock longblock about 4 years ago when I first installed it, have since added heads and cam and it's around 365rwhp @ 18psi.

    It ran 12.2 @ 114mph last year, have since added a better intake and a MP 85mm TB to help it breathe better. I believe it's good for an 11.9X in it's current state.

    Been considering adding more boost but I have more usable power than I need on the street.....not much of a track guy.

    AR whats that AUTO ROCKET? Not dissatisfied with mine. It turns a SC into a different car. Changes the car from a torque monster with a short rev range to a car with less torque but a long and endless powerband.

    Understatement of the year. I swear Rico's car wants to rev to 8k. At ~6000-6500 it is still pulling hard. At least that is what my butt-dyno says.
