One of the best thing I did for this R8 build is going with the CFi Designs Twin Turbo. Kyle did an amazing job especially with the custom center exhaust to fit the LMS Ultra rear bumper. Every part of his turbo kit are of very high quality and the attention to details are incredible. Not only is the turbo kit beautiful to look at (especially the hard lines), the car and turbo has also performed extremely reliably on the race track. On the last track day at the Ridge Motorsport Park at Shelton WA, the R8 did 40+ hard laps on a 90F+ day without any signs of overheating!
I will let the pictures do more of the talking!

Here is a video from the last track day at the Ridge. The first lap we were chasing a low 2000lb Miata with a 240hp K24 motor and a very capable driver. Did 47 laps on that day without any hiccup or overheating. Very happy with the outcome.
