    I remember you told me that before... but where did you hear that from? I can't imagine it is to bad as Wiseco advertises for them on their own website.

    Sounds like you aren't cutting any corners on this one!
    So you are going to EH your ST220 UIM, has anyone done this before?
    Obviously your upgrading your MAF, fuel pump, and injectors?
    What TB, headers, cams, exhaust, oil pan, bearings, and tune are you going with?
    Is anything getting powder coated?

    Looks like a great build!!

    Trying not to cut any corners if I can avoid it. No sense in skimping now with the money I've dumped on the turbo and 3L.

    As for the ST220 UIM, there is at least one other person sending in an ST220 manifold.

    MAF = 90mm Lightning
    Fuel Pump = 255lph pump
    injectors = 42# Lightning injectors
    TB = Mustang 70mm
    Headers = keeping my WR SS headers
    Cams = copying the Noble setup, which uses the ST220 cams (same as the 2005 Escape from what I can find talking with the UK guys)
    Exhaust = Full SS all the way back, NPG turbo piping and Borla Cat-back, which has been on the car from day one.
    Oil Pan = So far I'm just going to keep the Escape one, however I may try to get a Noble 7qt track pan if it'll fit.
    Bearings = Clevite 77's
    Tune = Probably NPG as I paid for it with the turbo kit, however I do have an Xcal3 and PRP if I want to venture in doing it myself.

    Powdering coating... everything I can fit in my oven.

    Nice! Can't wait to see it!

    Also I might be interested in the test pipe you said you will have for sale. Is it the high flow cat or cat delete?

    Mike, your borla is going to be a HUGE bottleneck in your system.

    If you like the sound (which i sure do of my borla :dool: )I might get a exhaust shop to make a 3" from the Turbo... manifold...downpipe thingy... Add a resonator and have them 'Tee' into rear part of borla where it splits.

    That what i would do.

    nice. ur setup will be a monstrosity! its just sad that our cars can't efficiently use all that power. 400+whp for a 13sec car? sad. how about getting goumba to build u an awd setup? got the cash for that?

    Yes I do love the sound of my Borla system and it fits very nicely too, which is why I have been hesitant to go to a SS system from Trubendz. I wonder if I gave Borla a call what they would say... well theres one more company to give a phone call too

    Ok. Find us some axles that won't snap of strip out the splines!!!!! Before you start talking, how about you REALLY try to do some research about the situation.
