    I'd love to go with a DCT, I've looked into what it takes, cost and all, I would totally do it, if not for...

    1) No proven upgrade available to the market yet
    2) No idea of cost of upgrades that are being worked on now

    I'm not sure. I don't think I'll be able to make more than it can take with this blower.

    Just ditch the original gearbox, slap on an F10 DCT and you're good to go.

    if i'm not mistaken, sticky had his motor built for this kit, so there was probably no testing done on the stock engine. at least not on sticky's car.

    No point in putting a YSI on a stock motor, you wouldn't be able to run enough boost & the blower would be really underspun (he's running like ~18 psi on the built/Low Compression motor). Most of the 650 kits using the V3 blower (ESS-650, Gintani Stage 2+, VF650) put down 560-580 WHP depending on octane & the exhaust combination their using. Seen a few rogue cars hit 600 WHP, but that could be a result of optimal dyno/dyno conditions.

    They can get you over 600. How far you want to go is up to you.

    You'll want to build your motor when pushing past ~600.

    Honestly, it's pretty fast at that power level. Not much can touch you.

    The YSI was only run on a built engine but just pointing out there was plenty of stock internal testing.

    Additionally, it's annoying when some people (not saying you) comment without having any actual experience. Gintani's new kits will use the bracket on my car meaning it is much stronger and less susceptible to flex. You can also size whatever blower you want so if you want a T-Trim, V3 SI, YSI, whatever, you can use it without having to buy a whole new kit. The manifold is the same for each.

    And does this upgrade work with the MSD8x? So 1000wtq in the cards?

    I don't know. I highly doubt 1000 wheel torque capability.

    That would make the 1200 GTR transmission sound silly for 25k wouldn't it.

    On what? They should be working on installing the parts this week or next. I expect to have a dyno next month with the upgraded DCT.
