"plenty of torque" is relative tq from a boosted motor, on another level than its normally aspirated counterpart... hence different gearing requirements the extra gear won't do anything for acceleration, in the examples listed For your build, the J160 is a perfect application imo.... exac...

If you were retaining the stock manifold , it might be worthwhile to run a smallport to achieve your power goals 160hp... or 160whp? - - VERY important difference ASSUMING the later..... 160whp I've got an afte...
