Oo i cant wait to see numbers! This is exactly what i would run my car if it was boosted, 93 pump always, then when i hit the track use some meth perfect setup.

How much boost are you guys gonna be running on this 2.5 kit? around 20 with meth?

I was just kidding 500 - 550 is plenty for me for awhile. If I ever feel the need to crank the boost up I will have ESS do some lower compression luv to the motor

Can't wait to see the cost comparison from Stg 2 vs Stg 2.5. Do we have an ETA on pricing?

looks good, it seems from the videos like the stg3 turbo just just too big to really enjoy so this will probably be the best possible setup



so these 2.5's cost.... 20k$ installed for locals?

There should be several Stage 2 cars at MFest, I'll make sure we get some comparo vids. Official pricing will probably be posted soon after my car is finished.

It will probably be around 13-15 psi on pump and 15-17psi on pump+meth. One psi in these cars is a significant amount of power. We're targetting numbers that are safe when paired with the stage 1/2 fuel system.

As far as pricing goes, I will publish that next week. It will most likely be priced squarely between stages 2 and 3. I have to update our site for our turbo kits, and I'll include stage 2.5 when I do that.

We look forward to meeting everybody at MFest late next week.

Chris.

I'll be seeing you guys on Friday. Just look for the rental car bouncing off the rev limiter. I've also been waiting to see the numbers for Scotts car. i think this will be a great option, and easily upgradeable to stg 3 in the future.

Dodge Caliber. I don't expect to be spending too much time in it. My time frame just won't allow for two days of driving.

Silly questions but does HPF finance??? I've seen some shops offer a 12 month payment plan so I was just curious.

Pricing for stage 2.5 "installed" by us is $31,995. This includes the full motor build with stage 3 internals, stage 2.5 tune, along with all the stage 2 components.

We'll have power figures available next week.

Take care,
Chris.

Chris,

Can't wait to see the dyno results, and drive the car. To those planning to attend MFest, if you're considering a HPF kit please look me up and I'll be happy to take you for a ride in the car.
