If there is enough interest, I could do a group buy once I am ready. Probably cost about $2000 U.S. And it would be best to do a large carton, or share a container. Rather than shipping one at a time.

Went to the world famous Phillip Island race track yesterday. Came 3rd outright from 100 cars. Should have put the wing on. It was way to slidey in the rear.

I haven't updated this in a while.
After going thru another clutch I have now installed a button cushion clutch. Seems to be working great. The front brakes have been upgraded to Willwoods. I made a wing for it last week, and tested it on Sunday. It works great.
I entered the Australian SuperSprint Championships held over a Weekend at a Meduim sized track called Winton. I came 11th outright and easily won my class. 6 Supersport cars like West's and Radicals entered, so if you don't count them, I came 5th outright. I did a 1:32, previous P.B was a 1:36 in my first turbo NA6.
Did another track day at Sandown on Sunday, got a new P.B. Of 1:22.0. Won my class and came 4th outright.

Also, I made a 3" turbo back exhaust, but couldn't keep the boost down. We set the boost cut to 16psi, and it hit it straight away. I only want to run 12psi. In the end I had to swap back to the 2.25" exhaust.
Might need to port the wastegate?
I plan on getting some bigger Injectors, put the 3" back on, get a MAC valve, fill it up with E85 and get it retuned. Should make decent power, and hopefully it all holds together.

Yes the msm ihi's are known to boost creep once you open up the exhaust
Oh and that little turbo is out of breath by 12psi so if you keep pushing it, it will die fast.
Great job on all the track success.

I only want 12psi. Problem is keeping it there. I need to read up on it a bit more.

Nah, I will build the other car before putting a real turbo on this car.
