I was thinking about installing a 3.1" (from stock Exige S pulley 3.2"(?)) just to increase hp & torque on the first cam. Keeping peak power where it is on the 2nd cam, I figure it shouldn't be a problem getting another ~10whp/~10wtq on the 1st cam with a retune. I don't think I would be stressing the engine either since I'm only concerned from 3-5k RPM.

Being that the boost is higher even though peak power is the same, would this mean more heat is still created?

what ya'll think?

it'd be more heat, it'd be better to make the intercooler more efficient first.

that's usually the most stressful area (4-5k), that'd be where you'd normally hear detonation.
