I'm running a 2.2" on a Gen3, so the odds are good for the rest of you.
So in theory I could run a 2.2 with out the injection, asuming good odds?
Hopefully. That'* the plan. Assuming we can duplicate on another test car first. Those plans are in place. I HAVE to know this works on more than just my car. After that, it'* more of a sure bet on others.

Remember, I didn't expect it to be THIS good. It'* spooky.

Ship me that LIM. I need another. Next change may be even more significant, but I have to keep the one I have to fall back on for the time being.

Bill, I know that I am both NA and S2, but found this to be a well-written and concise article that speaks to all our engines in a way. Kind of makes me excited to just read about and imagine that some on here with S1s are just a-waitin' for the final details and tests to pan out.

Good, informative read IMO...

According to jr's3800 there'* similar room for improvement on the L36 runner exits, but the manifold design inside is quite different.

Interesting read...funny how similar things happen in different places.

I will be running a similar configuration, one difference is 1.8 rockers that are now available for the Series I. Along with an Aquamist 2c/DDS (1.0mm - fuel injector pulse activation) on the 95' TB and SC, I think it will work without major porting mods other than regular clean-up and indexing.

I'm curious who you are refering to as the "other person" who has followed a similar path. Who is it?

BTW, there are gains from blocking cooling flow permanently to the TB. Water injection is the longterm key to reliable and plentiful HP...

From what we've learned on the street and the flowbench, if you portmatch now without further info, you'll not get far. There'* alot more than just matching ports here, as we've recently found out.

If you want to go it alone, by all means do try, but until we know what works and what doesn't, there is some risk here.

At this point we're flowbenching and street testing at the same time, with 2 other test cars (3 in a way) identified to try to answer WHY in addition to WHAT.
