    Awesome car!
    What compression did you go with on the pistons?
    My son is wanting to go 10.1 with the IE reground 284 cam.
    Does it feel substantially better?

    Thanks

    I honestly don't remember. Dyno on the car was just shy of 300hp. It's quicker than you'd imagine, but very streetable. Good exhaust note too. Breathes easily with basically straight pipes.

    Start up is lumpy/hunts for about 15 seconds when really cold or undriven.

    Good looking bay!
    Where did you get the bigger throttle body?
    When I talked to IE about what my son wants to do with the motor, he estimated close to 300hp that would be reliable.

    Thanks!

    Stock E34 throttle body bored out. I believe Dinan offers one (basically a modified stock unit).

    Did you have to make any adjustments after installing the ford injectors? I switch mine and the car seems to be running rich...I can smell fuel off the motor...What can I do to to adjust for the new injectors?
