Not a requirement for the #60. It is if you want high boost on normal gas or if you want to run e85. Being I plan on going with higher boost once I build the head and do the internals I’ll already have this ready to go.

How much higher are you gonna go and or can it even go ???? Ive got the ported BWV3 waiting to go in the car right now with 42# injectors Planning on increasing the displacement and doing some other internal work When I rebuild another motor to go in it..I honestly figured the 42 s would be sufficient.. also got the tail lights figured out .. thought it was you that said you had the same set ,, Taillights

The fuel pump module may not be required, I know o want to eventually add even more boost in it, this is one way to get more fuel without a new pump.

nice job on the tail lights, how bad of a job was it to run the wires?

Honestly easy.. in all fairness I ties in when I was repairing the harness that was on mine. But. Brake signal at least on mine is the red wire.

Time for an update. Since last year I’ve changed the turbo to the gtx250 from the v3 zzp. I’d have to say power wise it’s pretty much the same.

latest install has been the Ls7 coils but seem to be fighting some spark blow out at 5k and above. Not sure what the issue is . After driving it a few weeks playing with plug gaps still the same issue, today I went back to the zzp coil pack and tune with the same setup as I had before and problem goes away.

could this be the stock valve springs ? Could the Ls7 coils produce that much more power or just enough morethat the valve springs finally has enough…
