Question What do you wish was built/available for the FA20 platform but is not?

What do you wish was built/available for the FA20 platform that is not offered in the aftermarket?

Hard to say. Probably stuff in the Japanese hyper rev magazines that we can get here at a reasonable price.

Honestly, this. I'd love to see a true possibility of an NA 250-300 rwhp build.

iunno, this feels different enough for me not to be a codger about it, those are all on the order of 'what should I buy' and less 'what are the possibilities' of this thread.

OEM's kind of do all the tuning stuff out of the box because they have to to keep up with each other, gone are the days of ported and polished heads and big lobe cams because they pretty much come from the factory at >90% of what the design is capable of given the parameters they set themselves.



I really hope someone figures out some tricks to get a reliable ~250whp NA build, I'd be all over that but it seems like a CARB legal supercharger is the way to go in just about every way for actual 'beat the hell out of it' driving.

I'd also love to replace the stamped steel suspension links and arms with something nice and light, it'll be pricey but it's one of those things when you go all out on a car to maximize everything. Hell people make kits to convert suspensions for other cars (like old Mustangs to IRS), maybe someone will come up with something to get true double wishbones all around.

I wish there were more people who would search, I wish there were more people who would post in the proper forum. Am I a grouchy old man?

Man I really hope theres more on the table N/A. I'm looking at this build to see what there is to offer. http://www.ft86club.com/forums/showthread.php?p=1685874

It looks like it would be a pretty penny to do tho...but having this FA20 scream over 8k would be sick.
