I guess I missed the part where you're still running pump gas. E85 should provide a generous helping on top of that. What boost level were you at for the 350whp?

Maybe I'm letting my paranoia get the best of me; worrying a about a problem that isn't a problem yet. I'll cancel the clutch order and re ask this question once I know for sure how it'll act. Thanks for insights and recommendations. This forum keeps me on track even though there's always more to think about. I think quiet days at work during the holidays makes me more impulsive than usual.

~23 psi
Just read through your build, looks pretty awesome! I wish I could have had some port work done on the head but I was under a time constraint. What c/r are you using?




The diff is ready to go with new urethane bushings. I just gotta get axles then there rear is ready to roll.

The port work was kind of a bonus. I'm hoping it will be a noticeable gain and reduce the boost pressure needed to make 350-400, but we'll see.

I think I got the 9.0:1 Pistons. My heart really wanted to go high compression and not worry #becauseE85, but I felt like this was reasonable compromise.

I'll definitely be keeping an eye on this build, it's certainly impressive!

I got a DW300 fuel pump in the mail today but they sent the one for the NA8. What's the difference? Can I still run this? Assuming it's something with the connector. Can I just run the plug that's wired up to the Walbro 190?

Will that help eliminate wheel hop?

Rear is ready to go in, I just need to get off my lazy *** and press the bearing into the knuckle and the wheel studs through the hubs. **** I forgot, I still need to press in the knuckle upper pillowball bushing.

Right now the exhaust is off to Abe for some modification. I'm having a slashcut bung welded to the exhaust to provide vacuum for a catch can. Probably plug the PCV side all together and widen the driver side vent. PCV + check valve isn't quite working well unless I run another dedicated catch can. With cooler temps out, oil vapor is condensing all over the engine bay and dripping onto the exhaust manifold. I can see it and smell it and there are no other leaks.

Rod ends I'm just experimenting with mimicking the canon brace without having to weld the last two attachment points. I'll also need to change an exhaust hanger since this is an NB rear. OSGiken takes some crazy syrup: 80w-250. Damn.

I'm lazy. It's cold outside. My car is in pieces in the dirt.

We'll see how long it takes for me to install it.

I need to find a depowered NB rack

That is truly awsome Psyber, and I bet expensive. But definitely worth it!

Questionable. I should really stop spending money on this car and focus on other things in life.

I'm just finding more ways to put off rust repair. Actually currently I'm fighting county for the past couple months for permits and zoning because I simply want to replace my rotted columns on the house. I wish I had more time for car.

I feel your pain. I have been attempting to start renovation on my front porch, along with some new stairs and cheek wall. This started back in October. Such is life in a historic district.
