The statements above are a little confusing(at least to me). I'm running a 3.5 twin plug with stock CIS, stock WUR, SC cams, Mahle P&C at 7:1 compression. The motor dynoed at 380 crank h.p. at .09 boost, f/r was 12:1 to 6500 rpm. I was told I could occasionally run it up to 1.1 or 1.2 boost with no problems, which I have. The car came with a Andial fuel enrichement system which we removed. This is a street car.

Not to get off topic, I also feel your pain. I had 2 well know shops build my 3.4 race motor. The first time it lasted less than 2K miles, the second time less than 1,000 miles. Both failures were due to lousy work.
