He's running a stock motor, so the power should be somewhere between 175-190... That's a 200% gain over the stock n/a motor. But on top of the power gain, there is also the pride that goes along with building your own car

Actually it's somewhere between 200-225HP cause the HY35 the cone filter and a 3in elbow. That's about 125% gain 100% should be about 100hp so for every HP 1% increase.

Also I ordered my FMIC have the I/C already just waiting on the piping.

also have a spare LB2 F/S if anyone's interested I want $60 shipped for it.

which ecu did you end up using? I have been giving my project a lot of thought and am on the brink of deciding to go with a tuneable ECU.

Very nice!!! This gives me inspiration for my ranger except for the fact that the T5 is not a direct bolt in and will require fabrication.
