Still, I would love to see some pics and hear about how it goes. Are you using the stock AFM or have you switched over to a MAS? Why a 2.5" exhaust? My Volvo 745T has a custom 2.5" setup for around 200hp, seems like a 3" setup would be the ticket for low backpressure which would contribute to faster spoolup in a 300+hp car. Did you lower the compression ratio or is this a stock motor? How many miles do you have on the motor?
As a point of comparison, my E28 535i (with 230K+ miles at the time) on Autothority's dyno in Northern VA ran 178hp and 232ft/lbs of torque uncorrected at the rear wheels with the Autothority MAS and custom chip, MM300 exhaust system, and ported exhaust manifolds.
