Thanks Mike! I remember talking with you about what your top mount would support HP wise and it does pretty much what you said it would. I de-badged it and have tried my best to keep this car clean, so it doesn't draw attention. It works most of the time but some guys want to screw with it, they're usually not happy with the outcome! Haha

Thank you! I do love it, It's super fun to drive!! Especially with the high compression, great off boost response and very snappy on boost. I saw 17.2 mpg driving back from Chicago on E85 and I've seen 25 mpg on pump gas driving at 80ish a couple weeks ago!

Mike Malin at Blouch and I talked at length about the best way for me to set this turbo up as well as with Angel Ortiz at HP Techs and with my motor and the big Tial gate there is plenty of flow up top. We're close to maxing this turbo compressor's peak efficiency island! We're not leaving anything on the table with her. The 10cm housing would slow my spool some and not yield much more if any up top and this is right from Mike at Blouch. My ID1000's are maxed and we are amazed at the power we're making with them. If I upgrade to the ID1300's when they come out we could turn up the boost a little and possibly see 580-600 WHP.
