    CP- E I want these parts made Thread :)

    These are the following things that i would love to be able to pick up

    1. 3inch mid-pipes, there are many exhaust systems out there but many are only axle back, I would love for a respectable company like cp-e to come out with a good quality mid-pipe

    2. integrated software that would plug into the i-drive for monitoring boost, egt, etc if that is possible Click here to enlarge

    What I like about your blog is there are a lot of pictures and good solid information about the product that you are developing

    Integrated I-drive boost monitoring software... brilliant!

    There really is not much if any custom i-drive software out there, is there?

    BIG 2nd on the I-drive integration! Maybe have a whole display for vehicle operating variables like oil/water temp, boost pressure, iat, throttle position, etc.


    Also develop a cast or tubular twin-scroll manifold and fit one of Garrett's new GTX-R line of turbos to it. If possible use as much existing plumbing as possible, if not then create simplified plumbing but try and make it compatible with the current aftermarket Intercooler input/output locations so that your potential customer base will be larger.

    The issue with the turbos is fitting it in their. I have been pondering and trying to do my own single turbo for this car and after trying to measure and guestimate it just seems the turbo will have to be further back (not in the engine bay) than I had hoped. I am still looking into it none the less.
