Scott... We got the head back but we didn't have the correct shims. We're cutting this one really close!!! The engine and turbo kit are being installed this weekend and will be waiting on the shims. The shims are scheduled to arrive on Tuesday, the head came back too late to get the shims overnighted on Friday. This will give JP 24 hours to dial in your car as we're leaving Wednesday at 4pm. As our tunes continue to improve as we get more cars on them, you will have the option of going with the 24 hour tune and getting the car for MFest (with an update to follow shortly), or waiting for JP to have one week of tuning on it. The good news is, we have both stage 2 & 3 tunes dialed, and it shouldn't take much for JP to dial yours in. The bad news is, everything will have to come together (as it always does) last minute.

Talk to you soon,
Chris.

Wow, built internals + new maps for $2500? Very reasonable...


As for the tune, make JP ride down with Scott to MFest. Nothing like a 18 hour tuning session

Not sure thats what he ment. I think he was saying that the upgrade from stage 1 to 2 is $2500. I hope I'm wrong though. Chris, How much would it cost to go from a stage 2 to a 2.5? Keep up the good work guys.

I'm sure Chris meant $2500 for an upgrade from Stage 1 to Stage 2. The upgrade to Stage 2.5 (from Stage 1 or 2) will be more. I'm sure Chris will correct the post.

Ah, i read the question wrong.

Stage 2 to 2.5 will be slightly less than the difference in price between $31995 and $18495 = $13,500 - $1,500 (credit) = $12K.

Stage 1 to 2.5 will be slightly less than the difference in price between $31995 and $15995 = $16,000 - $1,500 (credit) = $14.5K.

The motor build will still require pulling the motor and building it, but will not require re-installing the gauges, part of the fuel system and the electronics.

Does the $32k cover clutch and exhaust? Any other recommended add-ons?
