    ^ Yes that's what I work with primarily (LS engines, or LT now).

    Based on the graphs there is a good high rpm gain at the expense of torque, but that's how it usually works out.

    That would equal better acceleration driven in anger but it pushes the peak rpm up so high you would need a raised rev limiter to get the most out of it. (and it's been mentioned by Rifledriver in the past that the connecting rods and timing belts may not appreciate that)

    I have no issues with hydro lifters either but don't think solids would be that big of a problem considering the engine will be out every 5 years (or whatever) anyway.

    :)

    I thought he mentioned that the belt life is greatly decreased. I don't think connecting rods are the weak link, they are made of titanium after all.

    Funny you bring that up. While at a desert track last year a famous subi driver asked me how much was I overheating on the track that day. Told him I was up to at normal operating temps and I was set up to run marathons in 105 degree weather. Totally blew his mind as he said he was overheating after a few laps.
    The desert will break everyone :)

    It was a bit more than just an intake though to be fair...

    Engine swapping a ferrari is odd what makes it a ferrari is the engine. It seems to make more sense to put a ferrari engine in a golf.

    But different stokes for different folks some just like the challenge in which case it makes sense, its the journey not the destination I imagine.

    Don't think there's much to do there with ITB's and velocity stacks.

    Of course you could do some experimentation but looks like a very nice setup from the factory.
