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!!
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?

Modifications??? well...lets just say this ain'tcha grandma's contour
given the money and the right parts you can put it donw. If a neon can and a civic can why cant a contour. Im tired of people saying you cant EFFECTIVLY put down that power. WHos REALLY tried?
