If I remember correctly....Rich was still in the testing phase when the motor went tits up and was looking for a replacement to complete the testing with various other add-ons to come up with a for sure HP/torque figure to be posted here. We have now added another possibility in the mid-range version that would also need to be tested. If I'm wrong tell me, but last I saw testing wasn't finished so how could production of either model be going on.?

Congrats to the Yaris community-I will begin with fabrication of the production piece. When that first article is ready, I will arrange to have it tested with a member of the community and then go into production - hopefully intakes will ship by ends of Nov.

Understood, and I saw it in Oct.

Quote: I will arrange to have it tested with a member of the community and then go into production.

This was the part I'm referring to.

Either way it's not important.....I made the commitment to whatever is made in the end.

If anyone would rather have the mid-range, I'd be more than happy to fill the higher range spot that opens. Just found out I'd be getting a bonus from work, so I have the cash. If not, is the requests still open for the higher rpm manifold?

And if I remember right. There are very little if any visual clues that a S/C is about to start wailing as the stealth Yaris sedan pulls away.

Should have come from the factory with about 150 hp.
+1 on the horse power i will be happy for a while with an extra 15hp to the wheels on top of what i already have.until turbo.

COH dosen't look so good right now and work doesn't do any better I might have to give my spot up and I would surely give it to you.

To sum it up from an old school 1/4miler.....torque gets you from A to B as quickly as possible.HP.......makes the tires smoke real pretty.......

The guy who said that goes over 320mph in the 1/4.

the old phrase that was coined before i was even born is "horsepower sells cars, torque wins the races"

hey i didnt write the books lol, but this is besides the point. were all in here for the same reason...more power! :)

Seeing both graphs side by side should clear things up quite a bit for all of us... I just hope Richard posts them soon!
