Well.. times change.
After having multiple 16vs for almost 10 years I am going to part out everything. I have a *TON* of parts, mostly high performance engine/trans/suspension/brakes, etc.. a lot of hard to come by parts.
I still love the 16v engine, especially built in a lightweight car..
I'll be putting a 'part out' post up tomorrow and will link it up here..

Re: So long 16v forum.. (PowerDubs)

I for one am gonna start off by saying your are going to be missed in the 16v forum...

you were one out of a very small amount of hardcore 16v tuners.
never following a trend. Showing what works, what doesn't work, and what is possible...
from your lengthy writeups, to your uploaded dyno sheets...
16v is a great motor when u have things running right...
Powerdubs always did.....well....u know..
P.S.-I now have your previously owned Velocity TB

Re: So long 16v forum.. (killa)

Yea.. I'm a sellout...sorta..
When I always had the 16v and my buddies had the original 12v Vr6 I called it a glorified 8v...(2v per cyl).. I always told them if & when they came out with a 4 valve head VR that I would get one to see what I could do with it.
The .:R really is an amazing car. Especially with a few upgrades. Launching on the AWD is great, engine sound is great, brakes are great, seats are great. Everything I had to do to my 16v has been done already anyway..time to see if I can top the R32 N/A numbers..
So for those that may be interested in what I am doing enginewise over on the dark side-
R32 Schrick 268/264 cams

And of course I had to cut up another perfectly good rare intake manifold
