My bff can drive my car any time he wants. You should also be able to handle the puck clutch. You ran one for a while in your car.

I don't usually drive other people's cars, and If I do, I treat them gently.

But my own I thrash.

Nobody has ever driven my car since it was over 250hp. Frankly with my current setup, boost and therefore power delivery is very very different in each gear and someone unfamiliar with that would have some sudden surprises. Plus the likelyhood of something falling off or severing itself has proven itself to be very high.

the other rod is the clutch switch. i'm not really using it (although apparently it affects deceleration settings so I should wire it in...)

Today, I got my transmission oil. Go to fill it up, open the top plug... fluid comes out, meaning it's filled.... thanks car, 2 days ago you didnt do this. Thanks for regenerating some transmission fluid.

So that was the last thing I wanted to check. Then I setup launch control and put on the ALL OF IT wastegate. That one hits about 15 to 17 psi just on wastegate. So with some boost control loving, ALL OF IT is possible. I got to about 22psi. Holy jesus christ!

Launch control is also incredible. I can build like close to 20 psi, launch in 2nd and lay down 150ft of tire marks, basically all the way to 55mph or whatever I hit in 2nd. Its great. Obviously I did it right in front of my office, so I can brag tomorrow.

Launch control datalog. 3900 rpm spark cut retard to 1* launch

also we'll need logs of your spool in reverse....if you don't hit ALL OF IT in reverse by 2k, your setup sucks.

Wait, 20 psi on launch control? Is that just 2-step spark cut or anti-lag?

God thats insane. I can't wait till I have my 6258 setup on a tubular manifold and vvt. I'm glad I read this whole build at work, I like the way you ran the coolant line.
