Hey guys.

Some of you might know me, I have officially come over to Team Torque!!

I was already boosted, my last setup was the CTSC blower, 3.15 pulley, on E85 and tuned by Bugermass - at Secret Services Auto..

A few weeks later, i noticed that to get my car to where i wanted it to be, i would have to spend about 5k more, and it would not be reliable. I did some research, and spoke with evan at SSA. I instantly decided that was what i wanted. Although there isnt any pictures as of yet, ill be updating the thread as soon as i get pictures from evan.



Heres the parts list to my custom SSA kit.

Precision Billet 6262 T3 journal bearing turbo
Precision 46mm wastegate

Aeromotive fuel pressure regulator
Hybrid-Racing fuel rail
SSA top mount manifold
SSA 3inch downpipe
SSA dump tube
SSA air-to-water intercooler system w/Garrett 1000whp core

-Titanium Retainers
-Spring Seat Locators
-Machined Valve Locks
-Bronze Valve Guides
-Valve Stem Seals
-Port n Polished Head
-Pauter Rods
-Wiseco Forged Pistons (86.5mm 9.8:1)
-Main, Rod, Thrust Bearings
-ARP Head Studs

Transmission:
-Competition Stage 4 clutch
-Albins Helical Cut 1-4
-TSX 5th gear
-OEM synchro sets (1-6)


I dropped off my car at SSA on 3/28/2010, i went and cruised the Caribbean, and now im playing the waiting game. It should be done in 2 weeks. Like i said, as soon as i get pics/vids of the car, ill post them up and update the thread!

Thanks!

Dave just finished welding my downpipe, and dumptube. Also added a flange to bolt up to a skunk2 2.75" / 3" . Look at the penetration of weld, completely amazing! Enjoy!

I can't wait to see the pics even though i watched Dave build your mani, neener neener. I'm hoping you go back to team ethanol too. Thats going to be a sick build, let me know when they plan on tuning and i'll swing by the shop and take some vids of it on the dyno.

Oh my bad , I thought that u ment ur turbo set up wouldn't be reliable. I wonder how this mani compares to FR but I gotta admit this one looks sexier:drooling:
