Well, When I spoke to pete last friday he seemed to think that you could call them up and have them make you a set since they would still have plans for them. Anyways, I don't think I will say anything more. I was just suggesting something that would help him run with the 3L's better. The devil seems to be in the details of all the minor parts adding up to more power.

I have no doubt that if you could get a set of longtubes or make your own you'd make more power.

tomorrow i'm going to get a set of stock manifolds at a scrapyard to make my own set of longtubes. hopefully i can build a nice set. mine are going to replace the Y pipe, they will be long tubes, and collect where a test pipe would go, with a 3" Y that you can get anywhere like summit or whatever.

do lots of head work. bigger valves, port the heads, gasket match the intake side and put bigger roller cams in it with adjustable cam gears.. put on a thinner head gasket to up the compression. if you want more torque (lower et times) try to find some slightly shorter rods and then also deck the block to keep your compression up. if you do deck it you will have to make sure you get the LIM machined to match the new angle. for the exhaust side i think youll have to make a good set of headers that will scavange well and help bring the VE up closer to 100% maybe even over 100%

that should get you into the low 14s probably even the high 13s

that all sounds great, but we're talking about a contour engine here. there's nothing availible.

we put 3 litre valves in our 2.5 head, and BTW....shorter rods only makes more RPM, not necessarily torque. maybe on the high end, but you would lose your launch torque. anywho, making more HP than torque on a motor with 133k, i dont have a problem with that. i just wanna break 300. thanks for the info though..... if you can find me any aftermarket cams for the 2.5 let me know! (minus ST220s, they are impossible to find)

yeah.. thinner head gaskets and decked block will be great for putting holes in the pistons when the valves slam into them.

In his defense, he did say to get some shorter rods. But that is just plain stupid work to be doing on this motor.
