    It's not bad. I actually prefer lag on the streets. I don't want to be in boost all the time. My turbo doesn't spool til like 5.5k rpms lol

    Re: Medusa build

    doing a little bit of research on the turbo part number i came across what i actually have...the plate on the turbo shows up as a GT2560LS on the Garrett site, supposedly it's also the same turbo on a Focus RS.. which is also a 2.0l engine with a close enough displacement as our engines..

    For a while it may be perfect... especially with the cam grind i have from Isky Racing Cams and a good tube type manifold. After all it may be about a month or two before i have a good 5 speed trans and clutch ready

    Re: Medusa build

    It has been a while since the last update...

    About 2 weeks ago i got the car in the shop and the engine block dropped in. After many hours of rerouting the necessary vacuum lines and fixing the broken connectors on the wiring harness, im going to break it all in without the turbo.. while the mani for the turbo is being.finished.. all in all ot runs great and really picks up with the intake mani

    Re: Medusa build

    First time I've seen a valve cover painted like that. I will say that that intake manifold is sick!

    Thanks! So far i am the only one with this intake setup.. throttle seems really hard to press, but it picks up rather well

    Re: Medusa build

    so far things are going well with the break in.. haven't had many problems except for the old automatic sticking when cold...

    i will add that the intake manifold made a difference.. pulls hard to 6500(trying hard to not let it go too high) in all gears...one day i'll see if my wife can get a video on the road.
