Everything stock inside the motor.
In the future, I will put in some cams designed for boost applications and retune/Dyno.

Thanks Davew.

I noticed a few weeks back that turner or vac now sell larger than the 248/256 FI cams. May be worth a glance over when your ready? It must be great being free of the ess tune.

For my car any way, the ESS tune was very unreliable, I think it was just a bad tune or my DME?

I will definitely look into these cams, I was going to get some cam blanks made to suit my application.

When I get my final dyno on E85 and Meth/Water injection from the Dyno Dynamics I will organise a dyno on a Dynojet.

Should have final set up and Dyno in the next 2-3 weeks.

It will not be on the same day though.

Mine will be going back on a dyno dynamics in the next few weeks, currently prepping S54 US headers to go on the 330, then full custom exhaust, then dyno. Will be interested to see if I get anything more at all with the new exhaust lol.
