What about your spark?- Was MSD 6AL with J&S SafeGuard and MSD Boost Timing Master. Now All included in the SDS EM-5 package.

Oil cooling?-Engine oil cooler, remote front fender with a 5" SPAL fan and thermostatic controller set to 180F. Removed the front oil cooler (only necessary on August days at the track). Also removed the rear fender cooler (used to cool the turbo discharge from the oil pump prior to return to the sump)

Intercooling?- Water injection. Uses the windshield washer tank. Fully adjustable to inject at whatever pressure I want-usually at around 3 PSI.

Boost level?- 5.7 PSI. Prior dyno tests with the old setup was around 300 RWHP at 6 PSI. I guess you know an SC is a handful with 300 HP.

You you have any instrumentation? CHT, EGT, AFR - CHT on each side, no EGT, AEM AFR gauge which I will be able to data log to. Also inlet air temperature at the air filter, airbox temperature to determine the effectiveness of the water injection. Water injection LED when injecting.
