Hard to believe torque drops as RPM increases past 4000. Even below 5K, which makes me think something may have been overlooked.

Did you try a simple non boosted calibration to see how the engine is responding just with the FI system, even though your cam is set for a boosted application, you may see a broader upward torque curve before it falls. Not the very narrow and light peak.

Gosh, I expected 700hp for the build.

No, didn't run it without boost. Once it's in the car and it gets more data it may improve some but probably not that much. We'll see.


Just a question that popped up, as some like to do a baseline comparison, to see results or help trouble shoot.

Maybe it really needs to be driven to self tune... but as of recent with another fresh build, the valve springs were just a tad too strong for the lifters. Seems it may be a possible issue, if your torque curve continues to sag after installation into your car. The nice thing is a wee adjustment to valve lash to correct, if that be the case.

Sorry to see your disappointment with the initial results, as i too would feel the same, with mixed feelings to the efforts.

I am sure, it will be sorted out without much trouble to correct.

TS sent me these nice dimension drawings of both kits. They said they have not installed one on a small body yet but know of 2 installations
