She didn't get better than 55s :( I thought that she would do better but she told me she wasn't using the brakes much at all so I guess she doesn't know about any driving technique. We are going to autox school together though...

Did you look into running another -12 vent on the other side of the valve cover and then just putting a Y fitting into your existing line. Or run 2 -12 lines to a catch can with one -12 line to the exhaust. I would say that would do pretty good.

I second this. Put a friend in the car, have him run the camera, and show us what this pig can or can't do. Purty Please With Sugar On Top!!
I have grown tired of all the meth talk, injection, bigger turbo, different manifold ect ect ect. Flog this bitch, show me a smokey burnout, give me a 60-130 pull, anything but pictures of lights and dials.

From the movie Tombstone
Johnny Tyler: Is something on your mind?

Wyatt Earp: Just want to let you know you're sittin' in my chair.

Johnny Tyler: Is that a fact?

Wyatt Earp: Yeah, it's a fact.

Johnny Tyler: Well, for a man who don't go heeled you run your mouth kind of reckless, don't you?

Wyatt Earp: No need to go heeled to get the bulge on a tub like you.

Johnny Tyler: Is that a fact?

Wyatt Earp: Mm-hmm. That's a fact.

[Johnny Tyler stands up.]

Johnny Tyler: Well, I'm real scared.

Wyatt Earp: Damn right, you're scared. I can see that in your eyes.

[Wyatt walks up to Johnny as Johnny reaches for his gun.]

Johnny Tyler: All right now.
Wyatt Earp: Go ahead. Go ahead, skin it. Skin that smoke wagon and see what happens.

Johnny Tyler: Listen, mister, I-I'm gettin' awful tired of your--

[Wyatt slaps Johnny hard in the face.]

Wyatt Earp: I'm gettin' awful tired of your gas. Now jerk that pistol and go to work.

[Johnny doesn't do anything and Wyatt slaps him in the face again.]

Wyatt Earp: I said throw down, boy.

[Wyatt slaps Johnny harder and when Johnny turns to look at Wyatt his mouth is bleeding.]

Wyatt Earp: You gonna do somethin' or just stand there and bleed?

[Johnny still doesn't do anything.]

Wyatt Earp: No? I didn't think so.

Please Im beggin you skin it just once for all of mt to see!

That's an option. I think I will wait to see how much room I will have where on my new setup before doing anything.

Sorry hingstonwm but I have news to report and it isn't a video.

Today I finally got my washer fluid WI working pretty well. I had to tune rich in low boost rows to eliminate knock- the WI couldn't do it on it's own. The car is pretty zippy now and it's making more power than without WI so I am happy.

I was seeing leanness at the top of the boost/spool ramp e.g., 3psi, 8psi, 16psi, 28psi---LEAN that I had suspected was due to my long MAP signal line. Today after crossfit class (exercise was "So you think you can powerlift?") I felt industrious and the weather was nice so I removed my A/C condenser in the parking lot across from the gym.



Good ******* lord my cell camera has really taken a ****. Anyways a good time was had and I opened up the condenser box and removed the condenser and taped up the hole. It worked. Cheaper than buying $30 tube. I then routed my MAP signal line from the butt of my plenum through of of the condenser's firewall holes thus shortening my MAP line from about 12 feet to 3 feet. Logs showed my AFRs staying nice and true at the top of boost spikes! WIN

As I said car is nice and zippy now but but but I need to do something about the boost sag I have. With my MBC I lose 2-5psi from spool up to redline and that makes power feel very flat as was evidenced in my latest dyno graph. That sucks. The Hydra EBC can hold the boost level but I spool like 500RPM slower. My conclusion is that boost controllers manual or electronic SUCK. The Tial MV-R for my new setup came with all the springs for up to 21psi so I think I will definitely put in 21psi of spring. Which should damn well better be enough for 600HP.

Interested in seeing how much the stock gears can take sensibly before they pop. So far on my build adding the Rx-7 TII stuff has been pretty straight forward if you end up going that direction..

I really want to see this thing rip. I was thinking about starting a "high speed pull" thread, but I figured I'd just look like an idiot when I was the only one to post a video.

What's the worst thing that's gonna happen. He will blow up the engine. Then we build another. Blow the trans upgrade to something better. Blow the rear upgrade to something better. Personally knowing the way faeflora drives I believe the trans and rear will hold up longer than the engine holds.
