Quick question - does anyone know whether the standard Perrin oil cooler fits with the JRSC? If not, how hard is it to modify the Perrin unit so that it fits?

As a rule of thumb, most well-tuned NA cars will have roughly 75-80 lbs-ft torque per liter.

So for a 2.0 L car, you're looking at 150-160 lbs-ft torque.

Another option might be to run OFT with JDL's UEL catless header. I'd imagine the flow characteristics of JDL's UEL header would be similar to OFH, so Shiv's stage 2 tune should be pretty good.
