Road Racing Motor

I've been asking quiestions on the FD forum about reliability as well. I'm looking to get an FD and I want to use it as a daily driver and a track car every month or so and i want to have a motor that can handle this.

As road racers do you have any special mods other then the basic reliability mods to keep the motor going for long periods of hard driving?

Also, what ideas for an engine (reman / rebuld) would be the best for this.

I really appreciate the help!

Convert to single turbo. 99.9% of sequentials have some problematic line that will affect boost, anywhere from mild loss to terminal. When the dual set up is running perfect, this is about the best streetable arrangement that has existed, but that's just the problem, they rarely run at optimal performance.
A trade off is the single, but longevity will be increased.

If you get a boost controller, stay away from fuzzy logic, they can't comprehend the sequential set-up.
