Super clean bro! I bet That's a very fun car to drive! I don't get tired of driving my car as it is now. If I had your setup I'd find every excuse to drive, lol.

nice numbers!! that's more than double the hp of what you get from a stock engine, very impressive

Thanks- the k20a does pretty well and is set up and tuned very conservatively for reliability and drive ability. My old k24a2 setup was a different story. Before the bearings in the blower seized prematurely, taking out the motor, it topped out at a record 416whp/305wtq @14psi on e85... It was a real hand full.

Some winter projects going on. New stuff:
TSX crank pulley
Kpro ver 4 upgrade
AEM ver 2 progressive meth controller (rewired for trunk mounting)
Custom 3.5in CAI
18gph meth nozzle upgrade

Rewiring the entire meth and aftercooler stuff has been a pain. Between the first controller and harness being bad to all the corroded grounds- it's been a handful. Everything is pretty much handled as of now. Waiting on a slightly smaller belt before retune. Pics:





Some of the new meth controller setup:
