If you're serious about building the motor, I can ask my machinist if I can get a better deal doing 2 engines
Can't wait to see that. I've seen the SRT SC GS run 12's, however no one really post results on their TT GS's. Good luck on the build.

Jeff, did you need to drill and tap the engine block to install the oem gte oil cooler on the na-t setup?

Jeff, is that one of your custom turbo manifold or did you purchase it from somewhere. PM me with the info and pricing if you don't want to share it.

My GS300 will be at the track set to kill mode in the coming weeks. It's getting tore down now for a 800 RWHP set up. Shooting for the land of the 10's.

Lol, isn't it funny that these pig heavy cars need 800HP to cut 10s lol. I'm going to be taking this car to the track soon as well once the season starts up. Hoping to at least break into the 11s, 10s would be nice too heh. Aiming for around 700WHP or so with the Comp 6765 at around 30-35psi on c16.

Yea I know. How much weight did you save by swapping to ISF seats? I was riding in Darin's ISF just yesterday and was telling him how nice it would be to upgrade to those seats in my GS. Also where did you find them?

Updates 12/27/2011

Tasks completed:
- Modified the throttle body and welded on the wiggins clamp ferrule/ring.
- Got a little further on the wiring harness.

Cutting up a rare and hard to find Aristo VVTi throttle body. Oops!

Love this freakin' saw. Cuts so straight and perfect every single time. Then again, it is a $1400 saw lol.

This is where the wiggins clamp ring needs to go.
Click the image to open in full size.

Stock throttle body is not as big of diameter as the ring I need to weld on.
Click the image to open in full size.

Bored out and chamfered the hole to give a better flow into the throttle body.
Click the image to open in full size.

Cut down the ring just a hair. The clearance I'm working with in the engine bay is extremely tight.
Click the image to open in full size.

Welded the ring from the inside...was a freaking PITA! Anyways, after welding I smoothed out all the walls to ensure good flow.
Click the image to open in full size.

Completed assembly, o-ring reinstalled.

TB put back together. This is about the extent of the purple going on the engine.
