Primary cat delete...that's it. A slightly smaller pulley on the SC, (4mm smaller), is not even worth mentioning as its from the 93octane version of the VT2-625 kit.

I do also blend up to 94-95octane (from 91) via Torco 100% of the time. I'm paranoid about bad gas...

The scuderia held its own I feel like

Your car is beautifully fast, great videos. GLW the motor life and all that power though, Ive always been interested to see how many miles our motors will last boosted vs n/a. Could be very close.

I love my kit the power is consistent and no heat issues.
If the car serviced regularly I don't see why it wouldn't last as long!

Now I have to measure my sc pulley to see if I have the 93 oct one...

Hey Raph nice runs against the exotics....way to represent.

I'm curious how much Torco do you mix with 91 oct? I just bought some and I'm going to test it out on the dyno. The label says one bottle converts 10 gallons to 102 octane but I would assume that's optimistic. How much are you mixing to get to your estimated 94-95? Thx.

Man, seeing it blow away a scud really puts things into perspective. I know there are faster straight line cars out there, and that's not necessarily its m.o., but still..

Ok cool thanks. I'm going to try that and dyno to see if it works as well as mixing VP pump 100 with 91.

I think you will see identical results for the most part. Octane is octane. Dyno'n won't show you anything when done under different conditions...on different days, heck back to back pulls have bigger variations then vp100 blended vs torco blend.

My dyno pulls have been very consistent lately, so I'm going to dyno with the 91+Torco to make sure it provides similar power as compared with my dynos with the pump 100/91 blend. As long as the power levels are consistent, then I know the Torco is doing it's job (increasing the effective octane).

Reason I'm testing the Torco is because I'm planning on more boost very soon and therefore need to test for myself that Torco works.

Thinking of going up to the 93 octane only 650 kit? ...or going completely uncharted territory?

Just don't become ESS' 4th VT3 kit by virtue of a blown motor
