I am very interested as to what you perceive the Wolf EMS can do that the V2 can't. Then, if there is something there, what it can do that Infinity cannot.

The manual trans sits a little higher than the auto. There is a difference in the trans tunnel shape around the shifter. It can be modified pretty easily. Myself and a number of others have...

For the record, your 650 whp goal is attainable on an almost stock auto trans. Mine was made on a stock trans. It wasn't very happy about it, but it did it. Lasted almost 2 years so long as you...

Your injector math doesn't add up.

I have 1260cc injectors. At 650 whp, they were at 75% duty cycle on e85 with a 50 psi base fuel pressure. Even if you ran your 1000's at 100% duty cycle, you...

650 whp will be maxing out 1000cc injectors on e85.

I may be missing it, but I don't see upraded pistons and rods anywhere.

Plan on line honing the mains hopefully?

Correct, you will be fine.

However, changing to lower compression anything is going to negatively effect drivability unless boosted.

By all means, if you can afford it, go ahead and do upgraded pistons and rods.

I am putting a set in my current build right now.

I have a set for sale though, $225 shipped.

Nothing to worry about. Balance isn't important between crank and rods/pistons, but each independent piece - all pistons should weigh the same, big and small rod ends, etc.
