I gave it a good rub-down with Acetone and huffed the left over...it still turned nasty purple though, with a gold dump tube. I am not a Laker fan.

Who the **** cares? It screams functional.

Your motor looks like it's hungry...like it wants to eat something...like Corvettes and GT3s maybe.

Looks like it wants to post about wanting the eat something like a gt3, not actually go and do it.

Did the 9psi BOV spring help?

EDIT: Like I told Sav and snowboarder, I have a .64 turbine if anyone wants to try it.

I will know more on the 9psi spring later today after I road tune in the rain. If it still surges, I'll get a lighter spring from Alamo.

The .64 turbine is certainly gay because the big one gets the job done.

Also, I love you, Tim.

Any idea if Savington is melting **** under-the-hood without a heat shield? I need something to block off the master cylinder.

My car is really rough right now, I hope it makes it through tech. I will most likely tuck wires and clean this crap up in the line for tech, lol.

TiAL Q...as in "I'm queer for you." I'll try the 9psi sprang tonight. Now I have cool paperweights in my office.

does the tial have two ports? that makes a significant difference. it increases the pressure difference across the diaphragm to both hold it closed in boost or vac and open it faster when the throttle closes...

I was untold of such event, anyways for dyno purposes, i might take you up on that. It would be good to have hard evidence on the exact changes the housing has. Ill do it after an intake manifold..

johnwag and I put the 3.63 pumpkin in tonight. It was worth every cent.

Now that I have usable gear ratios and about 70* air temps, I'm making 13psi at 3200 on the old spark table.
