I have no doubt that Tony will have some first driving impressions to add here, but I wanted to give a quick summary of the build we just finished up for him.  He has been a long time customer of ours and has been rocking a 2009 1,000whp setup for some time now.  We had the engine out to refresh and he had recently picked up a black 2017 as well.  With the opportunity to swap the 2017 running gear over to the old chassis and move the big power stuff over to the 2017 he did the logical thing and pulled the trigger  :) .  Additionally, we finally talked him into upgrading to Motec!  With the addition of a Boost Logic 12-injector manifold and some other tweaks the car made 1,150whp!  This thing is absolutely perfect on the street.  Congrats Tony, I know you are one happy camper!

Thanks for the post, Stu!

 

MAN! I don't even really know where to start. Stuart is right, the decision to swap everything wasn't my original plan, but after talking with Stu & Palo, it was a no-brainer.

I had a lot of fun with my 09, won a lot of races/events, and just enjoyed the whole thing.....but taking all that and then some to the '17 is just perfect! I dropped the '17 off and the plan essentially gave me a car I would drive out of the shop not needing/lacking anything (except maybe a sleeve kit and drag wing down the road). I picked it up last Friday and I've since put a tank of fuel through it getting to know the car. I havn't even gone beyond click 6 (out of 9) and the car is absolutely MENTAL!!!

The guys have been telling me for years, but MoTeC really is a game-changer! You'd just have to drive a MoTeC car to appreciate it, but it's incredible how a car with 12 injectors and this much power can truly drive smoother than it did when I drove it off the lot in April.

 

The entire crew at T1 has become close friends over the last 6 1/2yrs that I've known them and been a customer. Palo calls it "The T1 Family" for a reason, it really is like that.

This car is perfect! I cannot wait to get it out to some events. First stop will be Import Face Off Ennis Nov. 4th!

Stu is there anyway you can lay Tony’s, Mitch’s Elite+, and Al’s dyno over each other?

I wanna go the same route and do a 4.0L stock mani car but i’m in between on the Elite+ vs Xona Red vs BL1200x

Sure thing; so what you see below is the following:

 

Red- Tony's 2017 with a 4.1 and A12X (AMS carbon manifold)

Green- Mitch's 3.8 on an Elite + prototype kit (AMS carbon manifold)

Yellow - Pasek's 3.8 on XR Red's (BoostLogic manifold)

Blue - Alan's 3.8 on XR Red's (stock manifold)

 

dyno 1
dyno 2
 
Some things to consider before just taking all of this at face value though. None of these are running the exact same cams, have the same cylinder head work, or the same exhaust systems. All of which play major roles.  The kit on Mitch's can't run less than 35psi with how the wastegates are setup, and shouldn't be run on pump gas at all. Additionally, it's using an open downpipe setup.  All of the high horsepower stock exhaust manifold setups surge really badly, and need to be driven a particular way because of this.  This is not present with the larger 4.1 paired with the A12X kit. I am mentioning all of this just to make sure these dyno charts are taken with a grain of salt.

Yeah Stu Paseks is definitely attractive as a powerband. I need that setup w/ maybe a lil more power. Maybe like an Elite+ w/ a 4.0L, Shep Stage4,12inj, and Motec
