Wiring, fuel mostly buttoned up. Almost ready to fire. First 14b to crack 400whp? :)

I am gonna keep an eye on this...

I assume you're rocking e85 or maybe something more exotic? Think you can actually get the flow out of the 14b to get there? What's your intercooler package looking like?

Yep, gonna start on E85, maybe play with other options later. The FMIC is just an old SBR core, went with 2.25" lower piping to try and help with response. This car's a good 400+lbs lighter than the previous 11.7 car and should make at least 10-20% more power. Should be interesting. Do you follow the 14B thread?

You're lucky we finally got e85 again in our area. Subbed on this build.

Very loosely, still running mine and kinda thought about trying to chase it, but I'm nowhere near close enough and my cars a heavy pigs haha.

Ever thought of just doing meth injection to keep flow up, or a small w2a core? Assuming it's a drag only car?

I've considered doing a hotpipe setup with E98 or meth, and I had a w/a setup on a previous build that I may be able to get back and try. Trying to start simple and make changes as needed.

Nice side exit, I bet the guy you bought that from is a beast!

Could you give me some info o how you made that front lip and how you painted the black bumper covers?

Lol, did I get the exhaust from you?

Just rattle canned the front bumper covers with semi gloss.

The lip was $15 on amazon, just stick on rubber :)
