The reason I asked what boost level is cause I can't see images at work dewd. So posting an image results in me seeing a little box with a red X in it. So can you just post boost level?

I had sigs turned off




21PSI???!!!
Well hot diggity damn. That's ridiculous.



On another note, just a tad over 300 on such a hefty turbo at 21psi is quite a bit low. Definitely get that leak fixed, I have a feeling you'll gain quite a bit of your torque back and probably make more power too.


Its ironic that your BUILT engine took a **** without even seeing boost yet the stocker is holding up under all this assraping you're giving it and still hasn't croaked. lol

wow, above 300 hp on a stock motor... is there anything done to it? oil pump gears, crank damper, studs or anything else to try and make the stock motor hold together?

I bet it lasts a good long while. Bob bundy has been running a junkyard protege motor with his 3071 for almost a whole season.

Just watched the vid.

Is it really hitting 12-12.4 right before you let off? That's pretty damn lean IMO

I watched it 3 times and saw the same thing. Its tough to say b/c whoever the camera man is decided to hold the camera still UNTIL full boost and full power

Did you use the ebay rods? (didn't see the answer to the first time it was asked, I only see the video caption) Did you have any issues with the small end bore size?

Congrats on the power and getting a digital camera.

EDIT: Oh, that's what that arrow gif is for . What are you doing, trying to blow the motor to start the new build?

The AFRs on the gauge show ~11.8 as you hit peak torque and then taper off to low 12's towards redline? Even with my poultry 7psi (supercharged too) of boost I'm targeting 11.8:1 throughout. Isn't that lean for the amount of boost you're pushing?

The dyno AFRs mirror your gauge. Did the tuner mention anything? Also why did you go for some power runs with leaking boost?

It sounds nice when it comes into boost - eventually

Ill be adding more fuel up top, adjusting my start up richness issue, fixing my exhaust leak and will be going back to the dyno once everythings done. I went last weekend because I just needed to get out of the house and do something.

Poultry? I think you meant paltry. Come on man! You're English! No excuses!

This really makes me want to turn my boost up. Here I'm at 12 pounds and I think that's pushing it. Thanks for the thread man.
