Stop sitting on your ***. Move the TV to the garage so that you can weld while watching Kathy Lee.


I think I got my waste gate problem fixed. Basically when I bolted on the DP last fall I did not check to make sure that the flapper could open. It was hitting part of the DP pipe so it was forced closed. I loosened all the DRP bolts and moved the DP around so that the flapper could move freely. I then held it in that position and bolted it back on. Now the flapper moved freely. So I will drive the car some on Monday to test and make sure it actually works.

The waste gate works now. But spool is slower then I would like and it feels like a supercharger. Tim needs to hurry up with my absurdflow goodies so I can have a proper setup again.

He's talking brackets, not for the Final Four, but for the Bachelor TV show.

Spool on the ChinaCharger is definitely a little slower then I would like. In a 4th gear pull in my 6speed I have 100kpa at 2800rpms and get to 200kpa at 5800rpms. It makes me a little sad. But damn does it still pull. I do not have VVT up and running yet so hopefully when I get that setup it helps the spool out a good bit.

200kPa at 5800rpm?!?!?! That is so fail. I don't remember which churbo you have, but a Garrett 3076 on a 1.6 gets that same boost levels at some 600rpm lower.

ChinaCharger 2870, It is fail. I am planning on setting up EBC hopefully this weekend and seeing if that helps spool any.
