it came out of an r31 with same setup and at 70km/h he would be in 6th and only doing 1700rpm. this is done by cutting boost in 5th and 6th gear to 50% as first four gears are all thats needed down quarter so that way 5th and 6th can be used as overdrive so can still be ok on street. thats how shaun at boostworx explained it to me

Harrop 6 and 4 piston brakes or any other brand of 6 and 4 piston callipers painted in house of kolour paint for 2k? send me a link on ebay of unpainted 6 and 4 calipers that are same quality as harrop for 2k. be interested in seeing what i couldve bought. isnt that like pointing out that there are cheap 300 big top mount turbo's on ebay for a few hundred bucks and that buying a garrett is then a waste of money?! I'm wanting to get the car engineered and use it as a show car so going the xtra length and cost of getting good quality parts is important
