    Yep standard internals

    I have no idea how much boost a standard bottom end will take, if you want more power , turbo is the route to go. i know guys in the states are running 20psi with met/water injection and getting around 300hp. not sure how long a standard engine would last though.

    Simota filter replaced with ITG JC60, slightly smaller but draws better airflow for supercharger.



    Just need to devise a heat shield to stop heat soak from engine bay. you can see the cold air feed in the picture above !!

    Also need to replace the inlet air temp sensor, not quiet sure where to site it yet.

    Been out and about over the weekend and have the following observations:-

    1. The ITG air filter flows significantly more than the simota, it pulls harder and quicker in all gears, especially 1st and 2nd. I will get it dyno'd again soon.

    2. The stainless exhaust is TOOOOOO LOUD, its ok in short burst, but it must be my age, its too much. I have a backup pipe i will be fitting next week sometime to keep my ears in tact.
