Yeah, it's a touch lumper than I thought it might be, but I'll get idle turned up, and the turbos will likely help too. Gets lots of attention though. It stalls here and there, but that will go away...

Yep, should be a riot. Worked on a few. One has an old iron 302 making maybe 300hp, and it's so fun. I couldn't stop smiling after driving it. Been on my brain ever since.

I looked at both of those too, and decided on the HKS EVC 6 after talking to a few turbo guys and dyno shops. I'm sure the AMS1000 is killer, but I liked what the HKS offered.
