Woke up early from my 5 hours of sleep to honor my offer and still no reply from Comebackqid.

Gonna go to DNA Garage in my Pajamas now. I've got no beef with them or anyone.. I've met Louie and his wife. I bet they'll think this is funny.

Follow videos on IG story lol.

Would be very interested to know what indicaters you were following to know to stop at 408 whp . You have plenty of fuel and turbo so why didn't you try for more ?

I don't get the fender flares and penguin wings.




I'll still take my stock LY GT when it comes to appearance.

Nice job! something of substance!

You misunderstood the post I meant to say you have no validity in this forum as in everything you've done has been done countless times and has failed countless times so for you to come and start saying I did this and that without proof of work people are going to call BS!

*(most don't use IG or follow you there so how the hell is anyone supposed to know anything? Other then a new form member telling vets this works and they done it before with little to no success do you understand?)

There is no competition between those shops no beef etc. So don't know what has you convinced I'm running on either side I've worked with both Fris and Lou many times over the years so you can shut that down! In fact I was going to go there sometime this week just to see who did the rebuild etc. but already spoke with Fris about it so there is no need to be "007 keyboard warrior anymore". I Will gladly meet with you and go over the build this forum turblown the rumors "keyboard warrior" skills etc.

Furthermore I spoke to you before about your build even messaged you on IG "DM" and "Reply" to ask you questions about the build hell I even encouraged you to post everything here! you were very reclusive and didn't share much if anything so how else would one go about getting information other than asking around people are interested in this build regardless of how some may feel about turblown bridged renesis engines etc. but at the time you felt it was a waste share you have your reasons. Anyways DM if you want to meet up, and good luck on the dyno when the time comes!

Jonnyrx7, thanks for posting more pics/details. Good results. Hope the large turbo helps the engine stay together. It's uncommon for renesis motors running this power level to last, and many of us want to see more reliability with turbo builds. As you develop the build, please keep us posted with any failures/weaknesses you identify with your setup.

Jonnyrx7, out of curiosity, what did you de-tune the car to for daily driving? PSI/HP. Just wondering as the renny would not be able to hold the 19PSI for long, and if it does, would not mind to keep track of of how long.

Good job with the 8! Whatever your tastes are, getting 400 rwhp+ out of a renesis is definitely an achievement. If it blows just slap in a defined 4 rotor and scream around at 10,000 RPMs. Problem solved....

Sounds incredible! That is a wide powerband, even if it takes a bit to arrive to full-song (6k) -- not many turbo setups have such a strong 'power shelf' for 3k RPM. I'd be curious how well a EFR7xxx would do -- maybe to bring the power down in the 4k range? If I ever went forced-induction Renesis, I'll be aiming for 350whp and as wide of a band as I can manage that will spool in the 3-4k, even if it tapers off a bit before redline. Not sure there is a turbo that suits that goal with the MSP, but it'd be what I'd want. 400whp is meaty though and has got to have people excited, especially seeing that attention on an S2.

Sorry guys,
Brettus is still crying because when he hated on facebook quite literally everyone shut him down. I guess here ol' macho man still needs that somethin' somethin'. Ironically, the other tag teaming must've been super mad at the videos also because he literally sold his RX8 right after they were posted.

Videos have been up for weeks on ig/facebook. I still don't know what to say lol.

Like I posted up on facespace and IG, results will be in an upcoming issue of Super Street as well as 2 other international publications. Videos have been up for weeks on IG/Facebook.. but I guess I'll upload to youtube just for you guys too. 2 more SEMA projects this year, Formula D Japan, Super Lap Battle, and other obligations... lol as previously recommended follow the social accounts for either of the cars for daily updates or videos of them driven every week while I'm stateside. I initially wanted to do a build thread and break everything down for future owners to pave the way but the inherent rudeness, rumors, hate, and egos combined with my schedule has made me seriously lose interest. This also means with this project against all odds... we're doing something right that no one else has successfully or consistently done before. This wasn't a single individuals effort, it was a collaboration and combined knowledge between 4 businesses to make it happen.

If you're interested in my build feel free to contact me via personal outlets not the forums. From aero to engine and complete builds or my extensive build history.. follow my social or give me a shout. I don't even advertise or promote my personal business as this was just a really fun side project. Turblown is a different entity and quite literally is on the opposite end of the United States but feel free to contact them about my cars turbo kit, ecu setup, and tuning. Still proud to have them on board with the project and we wouldn't have gotten to where we are without them.



Someone can scan the dyno sheet when it comes out in print.
The funny part is even when the results are out... someone will always still complain about how they would've done something that they didn't. For example, I made it a point to keep the 18x12 -33 TE37's with 275's on the car vs putting stock wheels for the dyno to read 50hp higher. Over 40 documented full boost runs from 8pm-2pm the following day. The results, dyno sheets, videos, brands, and individuals involved speak for themselves.

Like I said, we ran from 8PM till 2PM the following day to meet our deadline and our goals. Put this car through the ringer and then drove it home (Video also on IG dumping flames on the 605 all the way home). Read the final results in a few weeks.

Heh ...had the desired effect - although all the above tells me is that the bridgeport didn't work ...or you would have mentioned it rather than just rehashing what you have already posted.
My only criticism was about how bad the spoolup is . I still think it's a good achievement to get to where you are.
It may interest you to know that my setup makes boost 1500rpm sooner and makes more power all on an inferior turbo to what you are running ... No crying here mate.
