I have determined that spool is definitely faster. I finally got my 2.25" gutted cat out of the mix and got my real test pipe on this weekend.

My EBC is still tuned for cold weather, where I took a few hundred rpms out of the target DC% so i didn't have spikes in < 60*F weather. If you notice it's spiking a little so i need to back it out a touch more on a 60*F day. So that for sure means it's faster as well as the fact im hitting 15psi at 3500 before it was closer to 3800-3900 on this same stretch of road in 4th gear.

The one thing I found odd is the DC%, I know I have a new FPR. It's supposed to be 1:1 like the stock and i can set the idle pressure basically. I need to run the gauge into the cabin and see what pressure I'm getting in boost, cause it must be over 70psi...

I've had to take close to 20 points out of my +4K fuel cells, so I'm guessing all is still kosher, just weird to see a max of only around 55% DC.

anyways:



looks like it'll be the 10th or 11th when we dyno, brad is out of town this week.

18 lbs.. 2nd gear... coupler blew


15 lbs.. 3rd gear. My BC duty is all screwed up (as you can see). Should be able to push the spool forward a bit more and post some more accurate logs.

So, any updates on when I can get one of these for my 01? My current intake manifold is off the car and I have cash in hand. Should I be looking elsewhere for a manifold?

The NB intake manifold has been installed. Should have results in about 7-10 days. Need to make sure you are not going to loose power on one of these.

inconclusive; I have a few issues I have to work out and try again.




but you can see with 2psi less boost, at redline, i was making torque and eventually made more power.
