Any comments or anything let me know, also I know where to get most of the best prices for most of this stuff as im real big on price hunting lol, the total ive spent so far is a lot less then expected. Also the forums "for sale" section is AWESOME for great deals. I got my T78 with only 2k miles on it for $700, and countless other parts.



Thanks for visiting,

kevin.

Why? How much power are you realistically looking to put down?

Why is a v-band now only for huge power? V-Band negates possibilities of exhaust leaks.



but since you asked ill be running at 20psi, looking for 500-550hp, with a race setting possible of 25psi.

No, I was asking why go with a t78 unless you're looking for astronomical power. I like v-bands, they're convenient.



To state the obvious 500rwhp is a lot of power. At that power level you're going to start breaking some drivetrain components. What rear end are you planning on running?

I am going to be running pretty much the same turbo setup. When things do break I will fix them. Pretty simple really.



I also want to see how much things can take. Very few people actually know where the limit is on the stock drive train. In my opinion there is one way to know, Drive the car, break something,determin the failure.



I have read people saying a lot of crap on these boards. I have never seen someone say "Here is a pic of my drivetrain that broke at 500hp." Untill I do Im not going to bealve 2nd hand info..

your not implying that people on the interent talk about things that they know nothing about are you?



I'm the same way, believe half of what you see, nothing of what you hear, and don't listen to a damn word anyone on a forum says until you know full well they've done it twice.

also talk to bobby about breaking drivetrain parts.



I would do coilovers kevin, you might as well do it now and not later. And FYI- KYB's are adjustable 4 in the front and 8 in the rear.



Nice parts though, and it will be a monster. Also, why not do a single exhaust. Save you some weight, and see if rob can make something custom up for the rear bumper so it is only one exhaust cut out???
