the only thing jared has really ever had a problem with in the drivetrain was the clutch. and that has been working fine now that we have gone with the stage 5 unsprung. he runs slicks everytime he goes to the track. never has broken an axle or anything in the transmission. doesn't mean it wont happen, but hasn't yet.

Stock mains have been pushed over 700whp, reason why most swap them and the reason we have aftermarket ones. Is all because of esslinger. They started making them because the 2.3 svo motors have main issues in stock form. So they assumed that the zetec would too. They developed them to be safe on the esslinger zetec car that was making mid 200's n/a. Eventaully they did a build for a customer with stock mains that eventaully netted over 700whp.

Really?

I plan on running 25+ eventually, so I want that wheel. Will they offer just the wheel?

garrett is claiming 10-15% better performance. Based off their gtx40 series, i'd say there about right.

Cold air intake is a no on the topmount Bryan. There were no gains because the radiator fan blows 180 degree plus air on the pipe lol.

It may be something you were planning anyway but some some small dams on all sides of the intercooler makes a hugh diff in cooling when moving , makes the air go through vs going around and taking the path of least resistance, I have seen IAT drop as much as 20 deg on large IC
