I am glad that Hustler's Absurdflow setup is going to someone who will use it. Make sure you let TurboTim know that you bought it from Hustler. I believe he keeps an updated list of who all has the setup's he has made.

Thanks Evan, but remember, Hustler's sticky fingers touched it first.

Some specifics on the wastegate. This version doesn't have the water ports, so I'll run some air to it based on advice I got.

For boost control, there will be a 0.8bar (11.5psi) spring and EBC controller by the DTA ECU. I'm planning on using PID based closed loop boost control. In simple terms: 3D map with throttle%, rpm and target boost pressure. At 0.8bar I should be at about the same rwhp level as with my previous GT2560R at 1.1bar (16psi).

Orange, huh?



I guess you are representing the Dutch as you whoop *** at tracks all around the EU. Pretty cool.



Amazing build list but why no thermostat?

Orange, partly because it looks cool,
partly because our company style uses that color now,
partly because a local and web based Sneaker Store is sponsoring the car:

Fahrenheit Sneaker Store Enschede - Webshop Premium sneakers : Schoenen van de volgende merken: Nike, Adidas, Converse,Vans,Cruyff Classics, New Balance, Timberland, Clarks Nike Jordan,

No thermostat because it's one less thing to break, there is a gutted tstat in there. Track temperatures are excellent at around 90C/194F.

Exhaust is in place, as is the manifold and waste gate. Had to trim a flange from the bell house for the WG tube.

Need to gather some parts now...

oh yeah. I always forget about that tab.

Adding a flex to the dump would make life easier.

I like this car even more now. I'm glad to see the Hustler/AbsurdFlow awesomeness live on in a worthy successor.
