I sent Ray a PM last night, and he called me at work today. I've had it with this M45 - even after the Endyn treatment I just ain't gonna get what I want from it. The whole thing is getting replaced with a turbo and I'm getting a street tune for 93 octane and a race tune for the 103 I can get at Atco dragway. This means the M45 with 2.3" pulley, the ported & polished JRSC manifold, a BRAND NEW Snow injection kit with the 1/4" nozzle (for direct screw in), maybe some Crower stage 1 cams, and probably a Random Tech Hiflo cat & JBA shorti header will be available soon. I just can't nickle & dime anymore and want @300 whp. Seeing as I have a built block from Tom and a levelTen ATX, why shouldn't I go for it? I'm just wondering if a 50 shot would be worth it or not. How's the scuttlebut on Rousch's kits? ...and will a stock fuel pump handle this kind of demand?

Do it!!! You have a built block and LevelTen ATX... I can see why you'd be upset. You're definately built for more power! Just get a compressor that can give it to ya.

I was thinking about attaching the blower to my humidifier and having a "rainforest party", with only white t-shirts allowed. And I do have a faster car - a Diamond Star monster in a Plymouth (intercooled turbo if you didn't know already) that I've blown up. I wanted a street-legal sleeper which is why I started this with a 4 door ZTS. The Focus handles WWWWAAAAAYYYYYY better than the other, especially since the Eibach kit was installed. I could have bought a Mustang and been like every other 5.0 at the track but I've always wanted to do something like this ever since I had a Laser back in the mid 80's. That little car kept up with the IROC Camaros after a few Direct Connection mods. I can't wait to get this car done and on a track against Evos & WRXs. I'm impatient to see how it will run after all the brake/suspension/engine/transmission work.
