  1. That’s kind of the ideal offset . You want the positive off set for the rears. The minor rub in the front -if any - could be fixed with a very thin spacer
  2. You might actually get away without having to repair that with the big head bolt right there
  3. There is no best on HybridZ . And Dave has told me that it doesn’t matter much as long as you do better than the stock . He’s had good numbers with the Pace Setter header and that’s one of the cheapest you can buy. I’d say it’s slim pickings right now . I made 230 rwhp with my MSA 6-2 header
  4. Z Car Depot sells the strips that you can attach to your cards
  5. What is considered “ standard bodies”?
  6. Pretty good day for me . Got to help a buddy get his motor going and we went for a spin to dial some thing in with his Megasquirt . It was kind of chilly . Same day I’m there with him and I get a call that my intake is done . Can’t wait to let my engine breathe . New intake and exhaust header !!!!!
  7. There’s a guy running a MN47 without liners with good success (200+ HP L28) I’ve showed my MN without liners to a couple of machinist and they thought the flow wouldn’t be that affected . It does leave a big gap under the seat which I would like to fill , but that would be almost impossible due to location. The rest of the port can be smoothed out . It does leave a massive port at almost 38mm at the port exit from the head . I think the MN 47 is best left NA mostly because of its small chamber
  8. I think the liner issue for a turbo is fairly isolated. I have noted that there is a difference in casting quality from early liner heads and later ones. Look at a early n47 compared to a MN 47 or p79 . I have personally removed the liners from a MN47 and I see no way they would come out unless they disintegrated . They are extremely hard to remove . The later years have better casting supports for the liners to sit on and much better casting in general.
  9. You haven’t mentioned engine management . Maybe you could run 9:1 with mild boost if you had a way to manage it . Engine management is what you should do first
  10. I’m using them temporarily before I install rivnuts . It’s just easier to take apart with the sheet metal screws . I might keep some in areas I’m not putting my hands .
  11. I opened up the hole . I like the fact that the upper radiator will get air this way for sure . I tried to make a smooth transition top and bottom . I’ll close up any crevices when final version is done . Still plan on running the grill right on top of this . I want this to blend in
  12. The exit strategy will be the most challenging to implement - especially if you don’t want to alter the looks of your car . No ready to put a vent in the middle of my hood . I might consider vented access doors , but really not a fan of that look either . I think I might increase entry size by having a second inlet above the bumper. This would give a more direct shot of air to the top of the radiator .
  13. I would start swapping what you can . Injector connectors , injectors , coils .
  14. Yes- what kind of COPs? I run 42lb injectors in my 3.2
