Is this everything that is need for $3500. Or what else is needed. Im assuming an ecu, bigger fuel pumps and a turbo.Also what is the import tax like?

Is this the same engine you have?

Yeah I saw that. My longblock was built by ATS but not quite the same as that, that's a whole new (and bigger) product based on the 5s block. Mine is a 3s.

You're not really going to see a huge difference out of that on it's own swapped in with a standard turbo/ecu. So for the money you would be better off just getting a turbo upgrade and standalone ECU. If you're bottom end is fubar then yes it's an excellent deal. Import tax = painful, but that's one of the costs of living in Ireland... alternately you could get a local build (I could not get a fixed price quote down this way), or get one from Tim at TBDev..

If you're suffering from lag, you're either in the wrong gear or the wrong car!

No, with a standalone you can potentially improve your off boost mpg

You considering a 2.3 stroker !!!??

You'll have lower import tax than we do down here - if I am ever getting a stroker, I'll get it delivered it to your house
