    I'll update IG, but let's leave this post dedicated to tech.

    Perhaps, but why spin to 9k rpms when you have 700whp at 5k rpms and 500whp at 4krpms? I think our current power band is wider than needed for racing. Outside of the 1-2 shift, the 6MT is always...

    Setting the Jb4 is much easier than dialing-in boost control flash-only.

    This is coming from a former die-hard flash-only guy. It is a win-win.

    A FMIC, fuel system, and clutch are basic mods. There is little to go ST but be much slower than a FBO car (clutch alone would hold you back). The stock clutch slipped on the dyno for me at around...

    If you leave the stock IC, clutch, and fuel system in place, you're better off getting another set of stock turbos.

    You can make a stock clutch slip on stock turbos. No sense in buying a ST kit...

    I did say that. And in my video, with both cars in the 2x psi range there was BUSLENGTHS difference. Boost was not "waaay" up. Also, I was able to beat the same level car (C6Z, similarly equipped) on...

    Sorry, I have to chime in.

    I've had maxed stock turbos (455whp before inlets were out), held the stock frame WR for a period of time, and a couple ST setups and can tell you that without a doubt...

    No, no machining needed. You just have to seal it and align it 100% when torquing. The last part is difficult without the BMW rig or the setup like above. I'm sure there are other ways too, but this...

    Agreed. I'm primarily concerned with adequate venting of PCV (lack of positive crankcase pressure during boost), not as much about vacuum out of boost (or even in boost).
