I guess step one is sorting out this ******* mess and getting it all taped up and proper. Will work on this on Wednesday. Spent Saturday just cleaning up and putting together a game plan/prioritizing.

For comedic relief, found the last time slip in existence for this car. This is with blown headgasket, blown turbo, blown clutch, huge exhaust leaks, all on a 222k mile original motor. Car #22.

I propped the post, cause 110 is a solid trap, and cuz ilu, but:

I hate the gay excuses. You make it sound like the car would run 8's at 180mph if it wasn't broken in half, engine in pieces, turbo vaporized, car getting pushed by blind retarded handicapped midgets on tranquilizers uphill with a 100mph headwind

Nice build.

Where did you source the harness connectors? I'm trying to find some reasonably priced connectors.

Well to be fair... i have a 13.2 @ 118 trap from years ago somewhere still. This was a "lol look at this awful slip" type deal. 110mph track sucks dick.

I'll be sadpanda if this thing doesn't end up around 125-130mph, just as reference. It wasn't a "feel sorry for me" or "look at all the excuses i have" post. I have no idea what ET it'll hit, though. I'll be happy with anything in the 12s. I care about power, not how well it hooks from a dig. MPH shows power.

Just at "look how slow this piece of **** was" post.

I get jaded real quick even in the real world. 110mph trap feels fast. Once.

Then the next time it better be 111 or 112mph minimum, or it feels slow.

That 110mph was done on a laggy 16psi. It felt pretty tough around 24psi the week before. (Also see: Why my clutch was blown. )

Isn't that always how it is? You will pretty much get used to the car, no matter what the power level. Doesn't mean that it is not "fast" by most normal people's standards though.

Only the finest used circle track fittings purchased by the fist full for this fine automobile.

And some hilariously cheap Ebay fittings again for vent/catch can things.

Valve cover grew another phallus.





More used AN **** from the circle track place. I like $5 Earl's filters. Coupled directly to fuel rail to eliminate a failure point or two, and because it looks clean.



Very please, so excite.






Just need to run another vacuum line or two, mount up intercooler/piping, attach battery, and see if she cranks on Wednesday. If it cranks and pump primes, will move forward with re-wiring pump, putting fresh gas in, and trying to fire it on Thursday. If fire on Thursday, will have wiring cleaned up on Saturday and interior will start going back in. Dash last, we have some work to do to mold in some $3 chinese gauge pods awwwwwwwwwwwwwwwyiss.

Well, there's really only about 48 hours of work left at this point, i think.

This car is about to become a meth *****, though.

Spraying meth seems a whole lot easier than actually controlling timing.
