That talon looks sick. It sits perfectly. Love the Turbo inlet and exhaust. When will it debut down the 1/4?

The only thing I lack right now is my intercooler solution. Once I get that resolved, I'm hoping to make my first track passes at the IFO here n April then to back it up in September when it comes back thru!

And now I have my intercooler solution. I'm going with an air-water setup from FrozenBoost.

Looking to go with the Type 15 intercooler and probably mounting it in the stock side mount location. Then using a 24x7x3.5 radiator for the water mounted more to the passenger side for clearance of the turbo/manifold.

Staying with DSMLink and going to see if I can push the high hp number up a little. Since my car isnt a full out racecar I don't really need the extra inputs available within aem.

I'm shooting for the same but with aluminum rods, butchered crank, and smaller turbo. Just forked out about $3k yesterday on parts, and plenty more to go. Good luck with the progress.

If the weather hold out, I'll be cutting the front end off this weekend. I'll post plenty of pictures of that, nothing has changed the last couple weeks because of the cold. My garage is not climate controlled.

The plan is to run e85(possibly e98) but with the new rules about fire suits that's going to make it more of an upfront cost($1100 for a complete fire suit) .

The Valve cover, Water pipe and I am considering doing the Oil pan too since the front core support will be removable, It'll be a nice touch for when the front end if off at Shows.
