  1. Sorry to hear you may be selling. As for prices, they are all over the place depending on history, condition and need to sell. Dealers with perfect examples are still asking over 60k while there is a FE at a dealer in IL I believe with issues for 49k. Also, the last 2 FE I've seen sell sold for 49k. These cars were clean but not perfect and the owners HAD to sell. Hope that helps.

  2. Wayne, I thought I had a scanned copy if my non-cooled run but I can't find it. Anyhow, this is what I had at the time:

    Johan ECU


    straight pipes

    Blitz SBC i-D boost controller set to 12psi

    HKS BOV's

    12psi wastegates set to 9psi

    With those mods the car dynoed ~ 370rwhp but the a/f was in the 10's most of the run dropping as low as 10.1 by redline.

    As a bonus, here's my latest dyno with a mid 11 a/f.


    The car now has:

    Johan ECU


    straight pipes

    Blitz SBC i-D boost controller set to 15psi tappering off to ~ 12psi by redline (stock turbos)

    HKS BOV's

    12psi wastegates set to 9psi

    Snowperformance water injection (dual 60ml jets, 100psi water pump press, 50/50 water/meth)

    I've done some quick logging with a friends scanner. Some interesting points:

    My inlet temps at full boost with water were ~ 140-150*F with an ambient of ~ 85*F

    My car with Johans ECU had 7.5* timing

    My friends car with the High Tq ECU had 10* timing!!!!

    Also, Matt sprays after the IAT sensor and uses the piggy-back to dial in the a/f. I spray BEFORE the IAT sensor and by dialing in my water injection, the a/f fell right into place in the mid 11's.

    Hope that helps

  3. Was the lip a Lotus part or an aftermarket part? As mentioned earlier, the S300 & S350 have the same lip but he S350 has an extra fiberglass piece. I took the 'glass piece off. Here are a few pics:



    After looking at Jonathan's pics, it does seem like it goes better with the more agressive V8 valance.
