Think it is a SPA.

Rocco is that BOV too close to the maf? Is it able to read good?
No I think it is ok. Tom hasn't said any thing about bad readings. I do have all new 3" cold side aluminum tubing to install. Just waiting to get this set up done. Then I will install the FRIM and 75mm tb . And few more parts. I have a new down pipe coming with open WG dump. New Tial WG with v band. And then a bigger turbo. So far so good. Its running strong.

Would an spa manifold work with the fswerks turbo kit?

It would but you would have to convert to external wastegate

We made some good progress today. Got in a few 20 psi runs. The car pulls very hard . I still don`t like the way the clutch wont catch until way up off the floor. Has to be some way of getting it closer to normal or stock feel. I`m going to try to power bleed it. Maybe even reverse bleed it at work ??? It does grab hard. But makes quick shifts hard to do. I will set the Cam Gears using the compression readings. Then once we have it ready, I will try to get to the dyno by next week. But this weeks work schedule blows. But I gotta pay for this somehow...

Thanks for the help on this setup.

I spoke with Tom an few hours ago and I think it's best with my tuner over here, opening the bypass is easyer then the idel bolt.

Dont forget to add me to fackbook

OK I worked on the car all night. Had a small oil leak, at the crimp of the braided steel turbo feed line. So I made a new hose at work. Thats all good now. My oil pressure gauge took a crap. So i bought a new AutoMeter. Gonna switch them all over except the AEM afr gauge. I set the cam gears by compression. I took a reading with the cams set at 0. I have 167, 168, 166 and 170. After adjusting the intake cam to 6* adv and the Exh cam to 4* ret.( I think that was it, my paper work is in the car ) I had a compression reading of 182 avg. What a big difference that made. The engine came alive. Cant wait to tune them in on the dyno. Engine now has 600 miles on her. I changed the oil again last night. New Valvoline 10w 40. So Far so good.

to every one running a High Stage Clutch, Like my Competition Stage 4 . Get a power brake bleeder and reverse bleed that sucker. I did it last night , and the pedal feel is much better. Not as stiff as the stock one , but much better than just a regular bleeding. It also engages a little sooner , about 1/2 way up now. much easier to drive. Especially since I am 6' 3". I have to sit back a little way`s. LOL
