This looks nice.

I was also looking into a spearco intercooler.
What are the dimentions of this one?
Where did you get it?

Do you need to reshim after you fit those new Engle springs?

Spearco 2-247 3.5"x7.8"x20"core size. According to Spearco it's good for 510 hp. I bought it years ago off of eBay. I will be going shim less buckets because with the cam change I would need to shim anyways. I'm not sure if it would be needed with just engle's.

You shouldn't do with just springs since the valve position didn't change at all. But yeah with cams then you always should.

Interested in the twin-scroll and your GT32 that sounds like a match made in hell! Post up pics when you're done and good luck!

A lot of my plans have changed. I'm now going to use a BorgWarner EFR 7064 twin-scroll with RacerX manifold. Here is the start of my custom intake manifold.

Very nice! Did you make the whole cap or just add the logo to an existing one?

Kind of both. It's a cap that is custom made already but the logo was just my idea to add.

The throttle body flange is welled so that it will be level when sitting in the engine bay.

I just ordered 4 custom built 17x9.5+15mm Work VS-KF with a black chrome centers. Should receive them in 6 weeks. I think this will be my final wheels for my GT-Four. These have always been my dream wheels.

At first I'm going to use the 215/40r17 tires that I already have, When they are burnt up I will move up to 245/35r17.
Also forgot to add that I purchased an AIM Strada dash for my car about 2 months ago. It hooks directly to my ViPec through a CAN bus port.
