    It is running good now. I am just working on touching up my final tune so hopefully I'll be ready for the track soon.

    I did not realize our car's are H8 not H11. Every place I looked says H11.

    that's the difference between a SRT-4 racing factory cast iron block and a Honda alu block-you know which one is break first. srt-4 block has ran up to 50pds of boost. I only blew up one engine old vw beetle-worst car list.

    That happened to be an unlucky money shot that happened under low boost. The K24Z motor is not the weakest link, it is the gearbox. An iron block is cool and all but CSS makes reinforcements that will last for serious power. Or you can ship off to Darton and be way ahead of the game.

    srt-4 ran the salts flats and got the world record for a 4 cycle turbo not sure if it still has it- 2 miles twice-around 220mph as it kept going hit 250mph- I don't think another engine will be able to ever match it because of its iron engine block is in unbeatable and certainly the new turbo Honda r is way over rated-its good on a twisty road but not on a 2 mile salt flat. SRT-4 is not a dodge engine and not made for saving gas but actually is quite good 22-30.

    Get that SRT 4 talk out of @mySIck 's build thread. Don't need that clutter up in here.
