That's a pretty violent boost transition with that GT35. All I've got to say is hold-****ing-on when she spools up! Awesome.

oh man, very very nice!! this makes me REALLY want to get my car tuned and on a dyno

right now its boost hits pretty friggin hard much like yours. cept mine it just dumps 17PSI in your face when its gets to 6000 RPMS (reason why i want it tuned)

how much PSI was this run at?

Thanks guys for the positive feedback! The car made 407whp with 12 pounds of boost with 3 inch exhaust. Maybe next month or two I may have another tune for race gas also. The bottom end seems to be holding up ok so far. Yeah this thing is scary when it reaches boost.

Here's a few more pics of the engine bay and the new front intercooler. I'm waiting for the shop to email me the dyno chart.

That is very nice, I love the offset Snail.
So as of now, how much has the swap and all the tuning cost you?

Thank you Alpha 5. When I first K swapped the EM2 with the Greddy Turbo Kit it ran about $16K. That was because K20z1's were real expensive back then. I also had added Quaife LSD, EP3 Koyo Radiator, Thermal 3 inch exhaust. Also the only wrecking yard here in Sacramento charge way to much for there parts because they are pretty much the only game in town. That's why I love www.car-parts.com.

This GT35R Custom Kit ran about $5000.00 plus a couple hours of tuning. I can't remember but I think they charged around $180.00 per hour.
