I went on one of my last drives on my BEGI setup today. Pulled in the garage and the stupid oil feed line was leaking on the CHRA again. **** you. It's been fun but I need more.
Replacing the injector seal fixed my boost sag limp dick. Holds pretty solid to redline. My QSV is on it's merry way back to sound performance for swap out. Manifold, dp, dump are coming to daddy and should be here on thursday at which point they will go out for ceramic slobberknobbery coating.
I made one last shitty video for you guys. This is at around 25psi and is about the fastest my car has ever been.
Just a crappy 3rd/partial 4th pull video. If you squint you can see the speedo. Sorry, I forgot to flat shift. And I didn't even shift at 8000RPM. Those Botswanan roads have a lot of distracting traffic. It's also much faster with flat shift especially when the fireballs generate thrust.
The todo list for Stage 6 or whatever the **** I am on is long so there will be a lot of joyful wrenching come September.

You're installing a 949 clutch and qualifie gear box but calling a manifold too expensive?
Look, if I made sense then I wouldn't make dolla$$

Are you planning on heat shielding it?
It probably won't be an issue during DD-driving (unless you're a total basket case behind the wheel), but during track use it might bring a slight cooking effect to the brake fluid.
Nice thread btw
After spending 3 years with the BEGI heat shield, I hate heat shields. I'm getting the mani ceramic coated and will also be wrapping it which will help a lot. I will also be putting a silicone hose and a DEI sheath over the brake line.
Oh btw, I asked the track guys with similar mani/brakeline clearances if they ever had issues and they said "no".
