We will see as soon as I get past the break in & get the final tune done. Then she's off to the dyno. :)

That's awesome. I'd be stoked to hear what sort of figures you come up with ;) I thought about doing that hybrid setup, although with a different turbo. Still though, you don't see too many hybrid power numbers, most seem to just go all the way 2.5 engine, so I'll be interested in your numbers!
