Some stuff outbound, Intake going to be port matched to lower plenum and Throttle body intakes enlarged to 72mm
I thought about enlarging the TB intake on the plenum too to match throttle body.
Reckon there'll be enough material left on the OEM plenum after opening up to 72mm?

Yes the AT bodies are to fit stock plenum as well as aftermarket. Its tight though.

Just going to pick this up, had to have one of my billet sender unit holders modified to take a -10 feed and -8 return to make sure we get enough fuel to the front, yes the original may have worked but if it doesnt then its trans out to get tank out a lot of 拢拢拢 in fuel lines wasted. These are going to be made in BMRS hose by ProLine now under new ownership by an R35 owner and a very up and coming race car driver. These are IMO one of the premier hoses available and they almost stack up to the size above so a -8 is almost same internal size as some -10's , hopefully fuel system will be underway next week.

Callies custom crank with BBC size big ends, Callies balanced the whole rotating assembly and then forwarded to AC Speedtech after superfinishing it.

Now where the extra strength comes in, look at the overlap of the big end and main journals from Crower to Callies

Dimitri has stripped my trans and a few bits getting replaced, 2014 syncros and engagement rings, all billet forks and shafts and billet awd retainer and midplate.
Turbos should be interesting we anticipate over 900hp per turbo before they start to become a bit inefficient

So, safety!!! 6 egt probes inbound from Australia plus control box to monitor all 6 cylinders and Turbo shaft speed sensors going in, just got these funky Turbo exhaust pressure sensors with remote mounting kit.
All monitored as well as fuel pressure and oil pressure and temp and coolant pressure.

Wow! I was all excited looking at basic upgrade parts, seeing this is a different story :D I'm sure you'll feel the difference if you go up by 400hp! Good luck ;)
