I think he ordered them through JZW. No one has ever mentioned a price. I'm going to say $600... But I have no idea.

That is what he wants to do as well, put in the twisty road course and have those selholm arms go to work. With good competition tires and a track without a bunch of hair pin turns, it should do fairly well. Will have to see how the power-band turns out.

Going out to Jersey to custom tune it, so I might try and tame it even more in first and second gear, we cannot go below base boost of course, so if it still spins at 12psi, may be a problem, but will see how we can get the best out of it and make it decent down low and a monster up top. The 4.45 should help the lag a good bit and I have no idea how this beast is going to turn out with enem 276 cams, may end up being better suited for straight line monster speed, drag race/ standing mile...

from just driving it on the road on some twisties it handles like a go kart. and didn't even hook up the sway bar yet. I'm confident it will surprise the shit outta ppl on the road course.

with the custom tune it's gonna be a monster either way. base boost at 12 psi spins the wheels in second but that's too fun to give up if it does better in drag over road course or vice versa I'm still really happy with the way the car has came out so far. just a good all around car is what I'm looking for

wait until you complete mounting the sway bar, THEN talk about surprising/outmaneuvering Porsches

Absolutely love what you guys are doing here and can't wait to see it tuned by John! (And I agree that spinning second gear is sort of like ritualistic!!)

I'm getting the e36 ready for some track days this year, we should both try and make it to the same one. I'm thinking either NJMP or Poccono to start with. The Glen is a great track but its just a little to serious for me lol My cousin took my for a ride in his race car, the g forces through the climbing S's are insane
