I have a buddy that works for Summit racing and he gets that nice employee discount ;-) Getting the crowers in the morning. Going to pick up some micrometers in the AM and do some messuring to compare the stock to the Crowers. Wont have everything in and running until spring but I will re-post on here when all is said and done. Deff look like the best bang for the buck. At least for what I paid. Also just got my OBX headers. Compared to everything else I have seen out there, they look like they will do the job and only cost half the price of other brands.

Sounds like a similar path to what I want to do with my D20. Let us know with the headers and the stage 1s what it does. I also don't think you need the IM until you get to a more serious stage of motor or FI. Nice choices.

Yeah, I did a search on here about the aftermarket IM's and it sounds like the only thing those would be good for are forced induction. I like the sound of my setup as well. Think I am gonna get more out of it than inticipated. We shall see. I will deff post some dyno results once it is completed. Still working on ordering the pistons rods and headgaskets. Once all that is done I will start putin her back together.

I'd keep the cossie I/M in mind. once tuned it pulls really well on an all-motor 2.0. I like mine a lot and I dont even have cams (mods in sig).

I think if i ever get the cams put in the next step is looking at a 3" MAF and intake setup.

Ive read a few guys doing it i think once you get everything else on the motor the next step is getting in more air so you can increase the fuel.
