Well for now I wanna break in the motor in good. I want to shoot for 400 hp, I'm definitely going standalone. Hopefully the motor will be good for 400

not too hard of a break-in ! but lots of engine braking, traffic (miami benefit) and using good amount of torque/acceleration :D

Your build looks like its coming along nicely. You sure you wanna run that clutch and flywheel? I have heard some horror stories about them. Not trying to be negative but instead hoping to save you headache down the road.

The motor is currently 550~ ish miles in , runs very good, im just having a ticking issue from the front of the valve cover from like 2k rpm to 3.5k. it's not that loud its just annoying. I took off all the top guides and the tensioner seems to be good.. but other than that i'm waiting to piece the turbo kit together!
