I love how they moved that first ring down a good bit, pistons are beefy. I think the additional 14 grams cam from the pins though.

What were the final weights compared to stock? Any issues balancing the RA?

I forgot the exact numbers, but the diamonds were 14g heavier each. The ra balanced well, just had to add a lil weight to each end.

Sorry there haven't been many updates. We had our version of a Snowpocalypse and I just got power and internet back at my house. Here is the latest picture I have. Haven't talked to Ryan and Aaron so I don't know if they've made anymore progress getting the motor back in the car. I would guess we are probably looking at mid to late January to do the tuning now.

Im looking at next week.....
Heads are on too. Have to get the oil pan modded for the oil line, and the oil filter housing drilled and tapped for some oiling and other than that, I think we are slick!

Hey everyone! Hope you all are doing good sounds like Gretchen is getting boosted... Again woo!! Lol! Wanted to see if you guys know which spArkplugs are the best for the RX supercharger? If you can send me the link that would be great!

Gotta take in my car soon, about 3 days ago I went to Hollywood and noticed my air to fuel ratio and boost was going crazy! My shop thinks its a leak in the system and needs to check it out. Hopefully everything is good tho

Just a quick update

Looks like the motor will be back in the car tomorrow. Ryan's going to do a basic tune to get the car started, but we probably won't get it on the dyno until Saturday or Monday. Right now the hold up is me and my work schedule. I want to be there when they start putting it through the wringer .

If clearance looks good may have to hit you up Derrick for cost on that intake.

No real targets, just hoping it will be more reliable than the last one. If we get enough fuel then we should be able to do over 500 RWHP, but that's a big IF at this point.

K&N, but I don't know the part number.

Unfortunately, we had to cut a cross member out and fab up a new one. I don't think most people are going to be willing to do that.

I know exactly which one was cut out. Mine aint a DD so adding a strut bar and a thick but thin solid metal bar would also help. Because the cross members are hollow so that should be more than enough. When I take my car apart soon I'll look into it.
