Nope. 287hp, not whp and HX40 as I've written T6 injectors and higher fuel pressure. Otherwise stock B6254S.

So wondering if I can get away with similar numbers but with green giants from an s60R and maybe a little more boost!

I read your build thread again but failed to find any mention of the type of head gasket and head bolts/studs you are using... Are you still on regular head bolts and gasket?

Stock aftermarket on both counts. Elring might be/have been OE headgasket manufacturer. Almost everything I haven't mentioned specifially can be considered stock.

Been slowly advancing the build. On thursday painted pillars with gloss black from A to C(originally B and C) and was considering if I should've chosen semi-gloss/satin. Installed doors and front end this weekend, etc.. Fitting took some time and it's still not finished yet. Painted door window trims gloss black and after install it looks like a good choice. Except you can see every fingerprint

Also painted insides of front lights and sides of the glass black excluding reflective surfaces. Was thinking of changing to white blinkers all round but orange is the way to go after seeing how well they fit.

Here are some pics before door trim and rear light install:





Will change front bumper to an undrilled.
