    Stepping up to the 87mm MAF, 3.5" MP intake pipe and 85mm TB on the same motor and blower drive ratio only yielded an extra 10 rwhp.

    I'm going to be running the same setup with 75/76/ZR/60 lb injectors and a magnum powers ported late model. Hoping for 350 rwhp. If you made over that through an auto I should be able to hit it with my 5-speed car. I'm just worried I'm going to start breaking axles when I put slicks on it and may end up swapping in an AOD.

    I've been working 3am to 7pm all week so I haven't had much time to do anything but eat and sleep lol!
    Any time Jacob or just text me if you cant call. As for the mpx a have alot of coin in it and it a custom 1 off unit so It will be pricey, I know im going to take a loss on it but the price is still going to be up there ive got better than 3 grand in it.

    Here are the pics of my fmic

    well hope this gives you the ideal basically it goes between the bumper support in front of the condensor and does not int with the ac at all. my car ran cool while I was running it with it on in 70 80 deg weather. I am prob going to notch the bumper supports so I can add fans for extra cooling when I remove the bumper to get it re painted but here is a link to the thread w more in detail pics of when it was built

    Look at the thread where casey built it it is 2.5 from the return plenum and 3 from the hat the piping goes down inside the bumper and across in front of the radiator. I plan on having a custom c&r radiator made that fits inside the core support to free up some more room as soon as the funds allow it.

    I can get a universal 2.5" piping kit with u bends for 90 shipped. Aluminum wish it was steel since I could weld it at home but I can weld it at work with the tig.

    Wow, this thread got huge since the last time I looked.

    The mpx car is a stock freshened up bottom end car. Home ported bigger valved heads, mild cam with great driveability. uncoated mpx, 15% overdrive, custom fmic, kooks headers full exhaust. 3.73's and higher stall converter. It made 310 rwhp at the shootout. Only thing that holds the car back from 12's is the fact that we havent been able to cut anything better than 2.0-2.1 60's with it. Runs 13.3-13.4 consistantly and traps 105mph.

    14 pounds, not even stressing it! I would expect 16 with coated rotors. Did you raise compression with your pistons, or keep stock?

    I let my Audi S4 registration lapse and when I got around to renewing it they charged me for two years. I told them I was in the military overseas, and the car was in storage until I returned, and they still charged me for the year prior that it was expired. I was livid. Cost almost $400 to get my sticker for my plate.
