Very much appreciate all the comments. JAdamz pm me whenever you want to see it. This is truly a weekend build as I'm doing the build at my beach house 90 miles from the City where I am during the week. But I'll definitely be posting regular updates of the progress. I've certainly learned alot on this forum and am open to all ideas/advice/suggestions from a group as intimately expert with the S65 as this one!

Then pulled the motor to pull the pan to send to VAC for baffling

Dare I say a blown S65 might be too much power in this application? It's so light, it makes me nervous to think about it.

Have you bought the Pectel? I ran my S54 on a Pectel and had some issues. Support in the US was great, support from Cosworth itself sucked. My S65 motor swap uses the stock ECU.
