    Bingo, follow the money you always find the real answer. To add to this I remember Adam talking shit about the NGK plugs then after he starting selling them they were suddenly "great", it's all a big joke at your expense.

    Well you maybe but if you were making 400whp and they still foul quickly then that only tells me the same thing, that means the plug heat transfer isn't happening fast enough for optimal self cleaning which simply means too cold. The stock plugs are designed to go 100k miles these have been...

    I highly doubt that is correct, that is the reason why these plugs foul so quickly even for people that are tuned it's too cold. Charts show you should do 1 step colder for every 75-100hp increase even then not always required, were you making 400hp? I doubt it. One of the mods seems in common...

    @FreePenguin Looks like pure marketing to me. I bet with the GF-6 standard there will just be less booms across the board in general.

    Sounds pretty naive, not here to argue but that's sounds like a desperate hope to the gods Amsoil might have some magical formula to solve LSPI that no one else knows about, you also have to account the pool of Amsoil users is much smaller than the rest do to availability and pricing thus you...

    How would that prove anything, not all of them are blowing up and the ones that do have had random brands of oil which means brand means nothing. I have been running Valvoline fullsyn all of it's life, the only thing that looks to be true is tuned EB's are blowing up at a greater degree than...

    Upgrading Head Gasket & Studs Prior to Bigger Turbo?

    oh that you did haha, yea It's possible starting at the 18's they just starting using the same passages for a single gasket on all blocks for all for easier management, the blocks are nearly identical as mentioned so it would make sense if possible to just go that route, but it would need to be...

    Upgrading Head Gasket & Studs Prior to Bigger Turbo?

    not to argue or say it's impossible but all evidence physically past and present says otherwise, if Ford can make the mistake and mix up the wrong HG so can anyone else? also just cause it's working fine right now doesn't mean that will be the case later it doesn't just not work after install...

    How bad did ford Sandbag the Ecoboost?

    600hp So easy huh, so easy Subaru sabotaged their EJ2.5 STI engines from being able to make 400hp without major internal upgrades, they didn't want to compete against their 8 cylinder boxer engine either...

    How bad did ford Sandbag the Ecoboost?

    @whatdoyoufeedit? I don't know what you're on about anymore lol, I don't think anyone disagrees there are short comings on the platform is the stock IC inadequate yes, is the downpipe little restrictive seems to be, could the stock turbo be bigger yes. Talking about the engine will just be...

    How bad did ford Sandbag the Ecoboost?

    @whatdoyoufeedit? You did say 350 400 was nothing these days right? That implies either a majority of boosted 4 cylinders are able to make that power with ease or your comparing to larger displacement engines, its called reading comprehension. Your basically having a fit because this engine...

    How bad did ford Sandbag the Ecoboost?

    @whatdoyoufeedit? I am not popping off or emotional, I just tell it how it is all. You're just zig zagging around, I mean you're right 350 400tq is nothing, I was not aware all boosted 4 cylinder engines have been able to make that power with no internal upgrades, right out the factory, thanks...

    How bad did ford Sandbag the Ecoboost?

    @whatdoyoufeedit? You're insane if you think 4 cylinder engines should come out the factory ready to make big HP which seems to be your main thesis aside from complaining about dumb minor things like the IC, yes it sucks nothing new just replace it done. Yea 350 400tq is nothing these days...

    How bad did ford Sandbag the Ecoboost?

    It's an excellent daily sports car, I think people forget it's not a special race car, these are mass produced affordable sport cars for 26k it can handle 350hp 400tq reliably without internal upgrades WTF more do you want? It costs as much as a freaken plain GT86 spend the same amount and go...

    Upgrading Head Gasket & Studs Prior to Bigger Turbo?

    Damn I remember when I did a valve cover gasket on my GF Civic, I thought that was easy it still ended up leaking even following torque/bolt pattern so yea I would consider HG job pretty serious. There is a difference between having things done scientifically accurate and just eye balling stuff...

    Upgrading Head Gasket & Studs Prior to Bigger Turbo?

    Anything can be done, anything can be considered easy but mathematically the more things you change the bigger the chance of something going wrong whether by your mistake or unintended consequences for introducing something new. This thread proved that point I think you missed it, the man...

    Upgrading Head Gasket & Studs Prior to Bigger Turbo?

    Since when? It's not revised it's clearly different in terms of cooling passages in different places for 2015+ EB from the RS which was the whole reason for the debacle when the RS had gasket failures for getting the wrong one, unless you have the HPP EB it is not the same . Be careful you don't...

    Android 8" PX6 unit

    There are settings on the unit to change the radio frequency according to your region mine was set to Europe by default. @ gregoory You just buy a BT OBD reader from amazon download the torque app that lets you add a temp gauge done, you also get the benefit of a bunch other gauges and...

    Android 8" PX6 unit

    It is a nice improvement because one the factory stereo is garbage with no amp, and this unit has some nice DSP functions, EQ., the next thing would be to replace the door speakers to have a decent set up.
