    May be a silly question regarding the prop. But has anyone tried the 350z propshaft for size. Or does it end up too long with the transmission in an s body.

    Bit bigger than that. It's the same size as the turbo inlet.
    You could put a t28 flange port inside the diameter easily. It's actually quite big

    AFR is good. 11.5- 12 even when the power drops.
    The only changing factor is the boost that causes it.
