im at 320whp and 400wtq.. which is eating spec s3+ easily...
im wonder how it handled what your pt putting out i see you have a bigger turbo... are you dynoed? what hp tq?
Sorry, I don't post over here much anymore. Almost all of my updates have been over on PTCrew.

I ran around on a solid conversion with a 6-puck ceramic disc for quite awhile after the initial slave cylinder failure. I was running an externally-gated 20G setup on E85 at around 20psi, which was probably right around the power you're making.. 320-340whp and 400wtq. It held just fine. Now, I'm running the same solid flywheel, modified pressure plate and a 4-puck disc hoping to hold whatever my PTE 6262 will put down. We'll see what happens.

I haven't had a lot of time to tinker with the car over the last few weeks as I'm getting ready to move to Colorado. I'm actually posting this from our hotel room in Denver, haha. Here's some recent pictures of the car:

Just a quick update-- I don't have the patience to fix all of my Photobucket image links on both forums, so.. going to leave things alone here.

Anyway, the car was damaged in shipment, so I had to do another timing belt job, and also fix the fuel feed lines. I also took the plunge and have the car running on a Haltech Elite 1500 ECU and that's been working really, really well so far. No complaints.
