which parts of it, buddy? We made the TMIC, it's a 35R with external and we also just made a skid plate for it. =) I'd be happy to get you a quote.

Default New braced, aluminum skid plate!

So we wanted to protect the headers a bit and help shield the bottom all together. We decided to make a skid plate for it, let me show you it.

thanks man, it's our first run at it. We've got some other ideas for it but it came out really great.

I'm using the same Agency Power inlet and was wondering what you used to connect that extra breather line the inlet does not have a spot for.

Well folks no better way to put this, but say it, the stock block has it's limits even in the 2011 model, it's right around 400whp as mine fired a code for number 2 misfire pretty much the same day the tune happened, compression showed that number 2 had only 75psi and 1,3,4 had 150psi
Next step is to make appropriate changes, car is back in the shop (they are working with me as much as they can to help me get the car back on track) and a decision will be made in the next few days as what route will be taken to guarantee 500whp with out any more issues!
I will post pictures of damage as the motor will be pulled and built as it needs to be.
Will keep you guys posted.
Most important lesson here is that don't push the stock block past 22psi, I would even say 21psi unless you built it, unless you will accept the fact that it will go boom very soon in my case a worst case scenario pretty much the same day it was tuned. OUCH!

yeah i'm trying to run the atp 30R, it's a very similar set up so i'll keep that in mind! i was only thinking 21psi to be safe anyway and shooting for 420whp... you think that's a little much on the stock block?

Don't push the 400whp barrier and 21psi combination in my opinion.

awesome car and story. it's nice to read and get updates without half a year between them like some builds on here, haha.

also, you can't say there wasn't warning. it's pretty entertaining reading back, if only cautions were heeded...

I don't think that anyone was surprised. We all know the risks with walking this line. Now we rebuild and prepare for what we'll be continuing to make. onward and upward.

Quick update:
The crankshaft in the Stroker kit had some issued and it would be another 4 to 6 weeks for it to be ready. So we went with the Rods, Pistons and Kelford Cams and a brand new Bullsyeye BAT Turbo going rotated as well and adding BC Coilovers BR series and a new Clutch, and all the other goodies necessary for the build to be PERFECT!
