A custom kit would end up costing more $ and time than it's worth IMO, and that's even if you can find someone willing to tune your hardware.

As Brian stated, the problem isn't with the studs, it's with the threads in the block. I know of a particular car being built right now, hoping to get 450+rwhp with the b30 + turbo. It isn't going to be cheap, but it'll definitely be interesting to see how it turns out.

Adam's motor is an exception. It's not in our league anymore lol.
Can we just classify Adam's motor as a freak of nature?
