Amazing build OP I love it. Out of curiosity, what is that blue box on the windshield in the second pic?

Sweet looking build so far! I had to google what a BMP port injection kit is, I'd never heard of it.

Maybe if you give me a unique opportunity, I'll definitely consider it sometime because I've said good things about your shop and you do solid work and are capable/ experienced.

But I can't wait to see what I do together with SSR Performance, it's gonna be something special.
wow! is everyone too polite in here or do most people not know anything about engine builds? I've never seen anyone fantasize so much about a build like this. all tom @ eas was offering was a Dynojet baseline not a story about a unique opportunity or being treated like family which is vendor code for do the work for cheap.

congrats on the front page feature! hopefully you'll enjoy the car for what it is. but unless you are planning to provide the machine shop the camshaft lift and duration specs, cylinder sleeve thickness and bore size, your own piston valve pocket design and have a set of valves and springs fabricated with custom load rates or rod bearing oil clearance there's no need to brag about an engine build with parts that you can't buy off the shelf. you would need a true race shop like Papadakis to build you a fully custom engine if that is your dream.

sorry for the mean post but I saw the need for a reality check.

I understand what you are saying. But I do have someone ready to build the motor I need.

I guess my point should have been simply, dynojet is not necessary for a stock motor as there are plenty of faster cars at the moment.

But when I do a built motor I will do dynojet.

Hopefully that helps

Added note: there are some inaccuracies in your response. I won't elaborate

Damn man those are insane numbers!! How's the power delivery compared to the stock turbos? And what tires are you running to put that power down?
