A lack of experience, advice from someone that has never tried 

Jeff, One of the best Mods you can do to your UrQ is run the two piece EM 
that has been coated inside and out.  The ones that are running it (Me 
Included) a.) have had no heat related problems b.) Better turbo response 
and c.) MUCH lower underhood temps both running AND shut down.

Before you build your UrQ you really should talk to George Baxter, His 
UrQ is FAST.....  Damn Fast.  And best of all he's not all talk, he's
