I would like to thank everyone for input on my V2 build. Every time I asked a question I got answers and I appreciate it. My car gets tuned on Wednesday at National Speed.

No sir. I had an idea of what wheel horsepower I was shooting for. I was also back and forth with Mont Motorsports

Same thing happened when I took my car to the tuner. I gapped them at .032 and he closed them to .028. That being said I have never taken any car to a tuner and not been charged a little extra for something that they found or I omitted to do.

I was quoted $300 to install (labor only) by a local shop that does a lot of V’s, for plugs and wires.

A mechanic I know told me $60. I gave him $75. Took just about an hour, including gapping them at 0.026”.

I think your combo will make about 720-750whp on 93 depending on how aggressive the tune is and make about 800-830whp range on E. The M311 heads will put a big smile on your face! Those alone is good for about 35-40whp with nothing else changed!
