I dropped .7 seconds by just putting in the 6 puck, so I'd say its holding up just fine. This winter I will be going a different direction with the pressure plate though.

That is a lot of slipping. Was the flywheel scorched?

No, but I had it resurfaced anyways. I only had a single pass on it prior to changing it out. It just gave up and couldn't even hold while even doing a burnout. It was designed for a much less powerful car and would probably hold just fine for someone besides myself.

Another thing to remember is that not all pressure plates are created equally and that's a characteristic of how they are designed. Manufacturers take different steps to design their products. Pressure plates that are rated for the same power from different manufacturers can be designed very different.

Have there been any issues with your reuse of the organic pressure plate? Excess chattering/vibration etc?

You lost me on the reuse of the organic pressure plate thing, could you explain that one to me?

Argh damnit. I meant--

Have you had any clutch issues since reusing the pressure plate that you were using with your organic clutch disc?

Sigh that sentence still sucks :( but I hope it makes sense :(

Earlier in your build thread you wrote that you were reusing the pressure plate you were using with your organic disc

No issues at all. I think a lot of people just change it out while they are in there because it's convenient.

Here's a few pictures that a friend took of the car last month. Sorry it's so dirty, wasn't expecting anyone to take any pictures of it.

Thanks for the compliments. As for the gauges, they are the Defi Racer gauges. I run a boost, water/oil temp, and egt. The car's a bit torn apart right now so I don't have the battery hooked up. The gauges are nothing special and look the same during the day as they do at night. They just dim a bit when the lights are on. The next time I get things hooked back up I will post a few pictures but it might not be anytime soon. There's also a good chance that I won't be running them after this winter.

Hey Jason, I was really curious what bov you have on the car. Skimmed through your thread and can't find any reference to it. Looks like a Tial. Can you confirm this, and if it is then which exact one.

I've always wanted that bov and could never pinpoint which one makes that low pitched sound. Very similar to all the big turbo supra's I've seen video's of. I thought it was tial, googled it and some of them don't make that noise, but just a regular whoosh.

I know I sound like a complete ricer, but I don't give a ****. I want that bov

It's just a 50mm Tial, nothing special at all. The sound is pretty good and I don't feel it's as ricey as a lot of the other options out there.

Haven't read the whole thread yet, but.. You're on the stock intake manifold?!?! It's 100% stock? Which injectors?

Sure am, 100% stock manifold and RC 750cc injectors. And a lot of meth. I don't have a current dyno plot, but it's making a lot more than anything I've already posted.

I do have a new manifold, but I only put it on the car to do a test fit. It will be going on later this winter.

It's just interesting, since it seems that a lot of people are saying the stock mani runs out of steam around 300 whp. If you're making over 400, plans for getting rid of it are perhaps premature.

While it would be cool to think my car is making 7 billion Hp, I'm sure it's more in the 250 range, and I'd like to be in the 350 range and I'm trying to figure out what needs changing. :-)

Got any spool up info?
