So what's the verdict with sending this much power through the v6? Can the V6 clutch, transmission, and rear end handle it reliably in the long run?

Over 6000 miles so far. Developing a twin disc clutch now. So far so good

If things do seem to hold up in the long run, I may be looking to S/C at some point too then...

So Sorry to keep you folks waiting-

We ran into a O-ring glitch yesterday and decided to go with an updated relocation of the PS reservoir as well. Both required extra time.

Then we got the car back on the dyno and found my paticular set of mods was flowing more air than anticipated- things would go along fine til the S/C got going and then we suddenly ran lean, causing the ECM to pull timing....

So we needed a new tune, and that takes some more time. Only problem was, I was out of time. I had to get home.

So the Top Guy says, "No problem, we'll put you on a plane." And I was home in 5hrs! 3hrs faster than I could have driven it! Just that simple.

Easily the most class I've witnessed in my life. Period.

Heard from Jesse today the car is good to go- and fast!

Now I just need to reunite with her and feel the POWA!

Top notch customer service there... I think Jesse just wanted to play around with your new power before you could

I was thinking about putting the res around the drivers side fender, mount it about the same height.

That's the revised position, and it is where it belongs in this installation.

I think Jesse just likes keeping people's cars so he can play with them !
With Jesse fooling with clients cars and Arno fooling around in China, I don't know who's having more fun ?
Gotta say I love the customer service, they are there when you need them.
Love to see the power steering relocate !

Yes, he was almost giggling when he called me to tell me about how well the car was running!

I've had to work since I got back- just got to look at the pics I took of the install. Thought I had one of the new PS res. location, but I don't.

Hopefully I'll be able to take all the pics I want soon... waiting to hear back from Jesse about delivery details.

Can't wait to drive this car!

I almost have my own install completed. Just have to reconnect one power steering return line, wrap my wire bundle, replace the fender liners and put on the wheels. It basically took me two solid days.

I'll be working with Jesse to refine the DIY directions some and I'll offer my input so the kit can be even more awesome. I'll probably want to get my hands on the latest tune as well.

I won't kid you, this install kicked my ass. I'm off to the shower and to bed.

I'll just be happy that I won't be dreaming about lights coming on in the dash, as there were none during my brief start-up. It had that S/C faint whine to it as well.

Must have missed that somewhere. Did you get the IPF or RX kit?

Strong work JohnnyB!

If I lived as close as you to EVOMS, I believe I would have taken on the install myself as well (I dunno tho- I'm getting pretty lazy!).

Congrats and keep us posted.
