Default Called INTENSE today...

I decided to scale back my ambitions for the time being. Instead of going straight to Stage 1x and having to figure out the DHP PowerTuner on a heavily modified motor, I decided to hold back and just get the rockers fixed and get the headers and high-flow cat. Also ordered a 3.2 pulley to go with those.
I'll be going in after New Years to get them installed.
After that, I'll see about getting an M90 case and "Wren-izing" it with a Dremel tool. Will, be expecting a call for help around February.

That Park Avenue is gonna be a mover.
Don't worry, porting won't be that hard. Just attention to detail is that hard part and making sure that when you smooth the lip on the inlet that you don't do any deep gouges. I made sure of that on my ported SC cases and haven't had a problem with them. Nothing but props.
Porting the SC, headers, High flow cat and your current mods (do you have a custom PCM yet or are you running stock tune?) and you should be able to run a 3.2 easy, and possibly a 3.1 with race fuel.

Stock tune right now, but my DHP software is on its way. I also need to get that damn trans mount swapped out. The PA has the same loaction as the Bonnie, but its a rubber bushing mount, rather than hydraulic, and it doesn't dog-leg towards the pass. side like the Bonnie. I'm cutting up a hockey puck to fill the bushing, so I should have a slightly softer mount than the 3-puck solids you guys use.

All that, plus DRs on those Bonnie 17"* I picked up from another member, and I should hit mid-14s.

As far as the port-polish goes, I'll take my time, do it right, have it ready for summer, hopefully. I'll do a TB at the same time, so I can just swap it in when I'm done.

You might be there the same weekend as Boost for the trans work. Touch bases with him. Might be a cool mini-meet.

Already talked to Billbutt, we are definitely meeting up when he comes in, along with Cody, and hopefully Pinky and the Brainless(AKA petraman). I think he said some guys from his local ClubGP chapter are coming with, as well.
