BluEvo 2014 EVO X GSR cosmic blue AMS 2.0 CRATE ENGINE

Purchased the car with 20,000 miles in 2015. All it had done was H&R lowering springs.

Immediately installed:
-K&N intake and UICP
-accessport with OTS map for K&N intake kit

In 2016:
-TBE (AMS DP, Cobb HFC, CNT catback)
-Cobb EBCS
-AEM wideband failsafe
-ACT HDSS
-Dyno Tune on 91 oct (~320whp/375wtq on mustang dyno)
-Stop tech slotted rotors w/ hawk pads and stainless lines

Ran the car like this up to now and absolutely love it.

Now I'm at 65,000 miles and looking for more power and have saved up some paper. So i decided on a stage 1 AMS 2.0 liter crate engine, along with a stock frame turbo, fueling etc.

Parts:
MAP Rev 2 short ram intake
Ported Blouch Dom 3.0xtr
ETS 3.5 inch FMIC w/ piping
ID 1300 w/ PnP adapters
Radium double pump fuel delivery system
Radium Dual Catch Cans
OS Giken TR2C clutch w/pull to push conversion kit
Gauges (innovate oil temp/pressure, zeitronix ethanol content)
Torque Solutions Engine Mounts
UR resonated test pipe
Omni 4 bar MAP sensor
HKS SSQV IV w/ recirc kit

AMS 2.0 4B11T 'stage 1' crate engine:
-Manley Pistons 9310 alloy wrist pin
-Manley “Turbo Tuff” I-Beam
-rod & main bearings
-ARP head studs
-AMS TMP camshafts

It will be tuned for 91 oct and straight E85. No flex fuel or mixing etc.
I'm looking for around 400whp on 91oct and 500whp on e85 (mustang dyno)

The car is currently at the tuners shop, while the engine is at AMS.

I've found build threads really helpful in terms of finding parts/specs/info so i figured I'd share this cars adventure.
I'm going to add to this build journal as things progress. Any questions/comments/criticisms are welcomed.

wheels/exterior

-XXR 527 18x9.75/+20mm (i call em cost effective)
-Sumitomo HTR Z II 265/35R18 (they're aight)
-ViS SS carbon trunk
-painted vortex generators cuz evo

-removed the spare/jack and trunk lining - apart from the subwoofer and the little 'tool kit' thing on the right side
- I removed the spare and lining from the trunk and installed the ViS trunk at the same time(with a friend to help line up the trunk right), did some pulls, turns, etc. the car felt noticeably lighter and handled better ...and i think it looks better

Even if you don't go fully built head, I would still throw some GSC beehives in the head for lower mass and a higher ceiling for RPM in case you forget and bounce it off the limiter.

Do you think the stock valvetrain would be alright with the rev limit around 7500?
With the stock turbo I would usually shift around 7000 anyway so I was thinkin this Blouch would have similar characteristics given its a stock frame.

HKS SSQV IV / Omni 4 Bar MAP sensor

I got the HKS bov yesterday!
The HKS SSQV kit for the Evo X includes the recirculation kit. It ain't cheap compared to other BOVs but, now that I've had a chance to actually check it out it looks cool, has everything you need to install, and its well made.

build update

My K&N typhoon intake uses the stock size MAF housing, and since I'm trying to go for relatively more power - I ordered the MAP Rev 2 short ram (3.5" MAF housing) with the wrinkle black finish, and was happy to see that the heat shield received the same finish. It looks cool with the black coating and the big green filter, but I'm more interested in how it will perform/sound.

I was looking into this and I was mistaken on the original post.
I basically just opted out of the CnC ported head. The engine is getting the TMP cams and appropriate valve/spring components.

Good deal.

Yeah, on the stock turbo its about pointless to run it much past 6k, 6500 max. There just isn't any air being moved due to turbo size. It's out of its efficiency range at that point. I shift around 6200 since that usually puts me into the right range in the next gear for max power.
