Re: Sources for TT front clip /

Either way I am glad for you to have some real power, and if you ever need help locating some new or used parts drop me a line at
By the way have you had the car on a dyno?
I have had it on the dyno twice. Last year, shortly after completing (most of) the TT conversion, it did 443 rwhp on stock intercoolers on a 93 degree day on 16 psi boost. Then, over the winter, I added Z1 Side mount intercoolers & a few other things. I turned the boost up to 20 psi, added 111 octane race fuel, & switched the Ash-Spec program to the "race fuel" setting, & it only did 455 rwhp on a 55 degree day. It should have been much higher, which means I have a boost leak, or something else going on. I will have to do some checking into what's going on. A little background on the car's mods, many of which came from Z1 Motorsports: JWT Sport 700 turbos, Stillen ported & polished exhaust manifolds~Power Enterprise 850cc fuel injectors~Ported & Machined lower plenum with bosses cut for new style fuel rails~New style oem fuel rails ~ Z1 front mount intercoolers~Ash-Spec ECU with 2 programs (1 for pump fuel & 1 for race fuel)~Walbro hi flow fuel pumpDoolz dual pop intake with 2 JWT performance power intakes~JWT performance street clutch & pressure plate~3", stainless steel 5 bolt downpipes ~ 3" exhaust all the way back W/ Random Technology high flow cats ~ Greddy Profec B Spec 2 boost controller ~ Stainless steel clutch line~ASP under drive pulley~One piece driveshaft ~ Z1 short throw shifter ~ Kaixen HID headlight conversion~17 5 spoke alloy wheels ~Michelin Pilot Sport tires. 255-40-17's rear & 225-45-17's front
