If you still haven't seen them by the time you read this, write
to Dave at DCompton@jnpcs.com and let him know.  I had the same
problem last week, and it turned out my replies were getting sent
to a weird folder that wasn't going out.

Yeah, the only other things I'd think about would be porting the
head some, and going with a higher flow turbo when that one dies.
Should be about enough to max out the stock injectors... ;-).
It'll get you a 12.9 with sticky tires, I promise!

That does sound like the way to go, keep the 86 in a condition to
easily go back to stock, and use the 85 to go nuts...that's my
theory anyway...minus the 86 :-(.
