Does anyone have any news or info on this? I put myself on the waiting list because that would be awesome to not have to mess with the PS pump and stuff.

Let us know how it runs, huh. Do you have a set cams? And of course you'll need a tune. What kind of price?

I am buying the stage 1 crane cams this next week! I thought hard about buying that turbo on the forums for the dura but ultimately decided to build my car more before going turbo. I also have a clutchmasters FX400 6 puck coming in this next week as well.

Emailed Tom and he told me to send him on over the info after I get everything installed and he will update my tune.

As far as the Intake Manifold goes, I had no clue there were even other options besides the cosworth one. I found this one today and there isn't much info on there site about it.

You'll enjoy the crane cams. Be prepared for a clattering/ rattling noise at idle w/ the clutch out. Have you checked out Exdy's 2 disc setup? When I do a clutch, I'm going w/ Exedy.

I looked at the Exedy stage 2 and its roughly the same price when you buy the slave cylinder that clutchmasters comes with. Also, I have heard some really good things about the clutchmasters.

I like the cosworth too. Thats the best proven one & when they're at the top everone is taking shots at them. Have you thought of adding a 23 head?

^^ I dont have the mechanical skills or know how to even think of it. It would be cool and I could probably afford it but I am just clueless.

Sounds like a mod g2g, huh? How 'bout a 23 swap? Vs a 23 head swap? I'd rather do a motor swap then a head. To give you an idea= How many miles on your motor? Price out a 23 head. Then price out a 23 motor. The 23 motor will give you more grunt viva the longer stroke. Pull the balance shfts & plug the feed hole, add your cams, get your flywheel & clutch kit & a header. It'd be awesome if you could get a torsen also. I know its a big chunk all at once. I pieced mine a little at a time. One section at a time.

RPMisChris 02-27-2013 07:27 PM

I have 58K on my 2.0. I am going to have to put on a little more miles before my wife will go for me buying a new motor lol. Although All of that sounds freakin awesome.
