And that's a wrap for this one. More mods on the way such as bigger radiator and stage 3 clutch. Goal for it is to be over 400whp, and with the headstuds, springs and race headgasket it should see those numbers no problem. My last one was at 330hp without any engine work.

The plan for the front end, any thoughts? (Photoshopped a splitter in the front)

It looks really good but you want the winglets to be further back and more parallel to the bumper.
You may want to take a look at a C7 Vette with them.

Great thread... the photos will help with my build. But I do have a question... what made you decide on RPM and not go with HAHN? Is it because of the water cooled turbo ? Thank you for your photos !

You know, i went with rpm due to the fact that they had the best price and fastest shipping.... or so i thought! But i was very wrong and would not recommend them to anyone anymore. A 10 day build kit turned into over 2 months and if i went with hahn they said 2 week wait time. So basically i went with the option that took my money the fastest and i regret it. I need to make a final video on everything that went wrong. I had so many adjustments to make and hoses and fittings to buy as well on this so called "bolt on kit." Quality sucks too, the piping had nothing but paint chips and runny paint that was supposed to be powder coated. Really irritated me cuz this thing has 8k miles, its gatta look top notch.
