Love the car. It's really the epitome of all the expertise on this forum...and well executed. Seeing it in your shop was almost like seeing a race car in a museum...beautiful to look at, but you know it wasn't made to stand still.

So ya'll took both cars up to BEGi to get tuned? What ever happened with Michael's WBO2? I owe him BIGTIME for helping me bleed the slave. We must have spent 2 hrs a piece pumping that friggin' clutch pedal.

We are still trying to figure out what the hold up is on power. It doesn't really make any more power going from 15 to 17 psi. It has hit a wall.

That's what I was originally thinking. They are testing it for pressure differentials to see where the hold up is. After all the threads on the intake manifold, I assumed there would be some kind of a loss with it. I would just like to see if that is the problem or my .64 A/R. Hopefully the former.

Damn...you should be getting more power than that. I'm made more whp and wtq with the same turbo and a 2.5: exhaust restriction in my 3" pipe. What's up with the 10:1 AFR crap at 4k rpm? I'm at roughly 20wtq more than that dyno...before I pulled the restriction. What is your static compression ratio? Did you hit knock or MBT? Also, how much spark did they pull out after achieving either event?

Post your spark table and a screen-shot of the log from this pull.

Got it out on the track this weekend for a HPDE with drivers edge at TWS. The car felt tight and predictable. The low end power out of this engine is amazing and the power band is strong and linear. I only ran it at 7psi to really learn the car, but even at those levels, the car felt unblieveably fast out there.

The only thing I need to change is the ring and pinion to a 3.636 set. My buddy has mine and I need to source another.

More updates with it will come as I try out my different hoods and ducting.

Very nice dude. Post some track vids and more pics of the setup.
You already beat Hustler in terms of speed of delivery. So he will keep trying to defeat you in other areas, don't worry
