I didnt know Eibach sold ti retainers. I received my evs about a week or two ago and they did not offer retainers with them.

I went with portflow retainers for the evs.

I have a pretty similar set up and am looking for 250+

you should hit your mark no problem with a decent tune.

Since you're going up to 88mm, go a hair higher on compression, like 12.1. And get IPS markIII k2's. Ditch the copy header and go for something nicer. Its worth it.

you should make 240-260 as long as your compression and leak down is very good

I saw a couple of threads about this header and it seems its not that bad but if I find a R-crew for that price it will be a good buy
