Well, i can understand the need of methanol in 1/4 mile race, but why here. Or turbo mod gives just not enough?
It's always not enough, I know , but still. What real gain you've got from this type of mod? Just feelings, not necessary figures.

Did you ever find a way to retune this thing? Or did you end up going standalone?

I think he sold his 2.4 turbo jeep and I don't know if he ever got it perfectly tuned? If he did, i'd love to see a step by step of what worked (the build thread is all over the place...starts off as a motor swap...). It still seems like almost a complete custom turbo project to me.

Certainly wouldn't go less than 2.5" tubing for 300hp. 3" for anything over 400hp-500hp

2.5 is probably a good number for the jeep.
