    I have pre ordered stage 2 batch 2 with thrust option and billet gtx wheel. With Tony's good graces I have no problem pushing the $#@! out of them once installed. Will be running 93oct and meth (will dyno right after install with hopefully 110 octane and a decent tune to get some numbers) trying to make decision on a meth kit now so that I can get a pro tune worked out and a good dyno on stock turbos for comparison. Will start a thread as soon as dyno happens. Probably be a few weeks.

    Let's see some numbers jzee! Even a 1/4mile run versus stock turbo run would be cool to see, I mean actual performance is the end game.

    @jzeee037: The problem is the wavetrac: ditch it.

    Yeah had it towed to shop. Think I'm going to use the giken unit some other members use. Not sure yet though. Maybe quaife. I only drag race and street race so don't need one for cornering.

    I got an email saying the lost hand motor from something they could not 100% pin down. They are looking into it. Without a running motor I assume we won't be seeing anymore numbers from mike for right now.

    I had a diff. crap out and had to have cam ledge bearings done because of vanos codes. I couldn't even go WOT without a code. Picked car up this morn. and man what a beast. Replaced both vanos solenoids last week and I could tell there was an issue because my car felt like it had a lot more power after replacing them. Then came more vanos codes due to cam ledge bearings. I've done about ten pulls so far with no codes. Trying right now to get a tuner lined up. I can use dyno either morn. Over the weekend.

    I know mike tracked his car bc he always would post about it, and it's to early to tell why his engine failed but man, I would be pissed if I were him. I checked the other forum and there is no info on him losing a motor but I'd be interested to know what/why it failed

    Maybe he was pulling a g on the skid pad and oil starvation got him. I have a friend who did that.

    Stop speculating people, Its getting old. The motor did not die in Giacs hands and Mike does not know why it went yet. I merely mentioned it so people would stop bugging Mike about numbers. Give the guy a break already.

    sorry , thats my bad,i just know the last i saw/heard anything regarding the car was in giacs hands and than a short while later heard they werent done.. than heard it blew up

    theres no shame in blowing a motor, its easier to just be open so everyone can learn from it
