Damn stage 3? How much torque are you/planning on pushing?

as much as the turbo + engine can provide lol but the reason getting it because others were out of stock & i plan to track the car too so more for heavy duty use will push the car for tuning wise but will not push it too hard for track days or some fun mountain roads (touge) drives, looking towards endurance + reliability instead of just pushing it for BIG numbers.
i always prefer reliability + drivability compared to pushing it to BIG numbers + unreliable or big HP that cannot be fully utilised.

Great to see Andrew and yourself are moving well on this project, there's a reason I've always trusted him as the go-to tech for big jobs! Having @Thusee local as well just adds to the mix of great mix of expertise available to the community for this platform.

Following! Good luck with the rebuild brother! Be sure to post all the parts and part numbers if possible for everything you used!

Could help someone down the road when piecing everything together.
Thanks my man! Will do on the parts list, I have a draft going but haven't updated yet until I have boxes in hand to confirm.

Nice, I think driving around for a long time with the downpipe contributed to my failure. Please keep us updated but I'm sure things will be fine for you!
what would the downpipe have caused?

Extra low-end torque unaccounted for in the OTS tune. Low end torque is particularly stressful on the rods. Just a theory.

The fact that it's best to go the custom tuned route to properly and more safely set up the power curve.
