eww stock exhaust.... WTF man.

No i havent. i just looked thru my datalog and apparently i never did a legit 4th gear low to hi rpm pull. I don't expect it to be GREAT tho. I have no MBC to help with spool and my spark is still DIY's base so Its conservative. I am running 12:1 at full boost right now and i dont plan on going any leaner than that.


I'm kinda nervous about my cooling system now. I may have some problems at autox. If i do a few hard pulls back to back temps shoot right up to about 210+ . Cruising is 195 though.

Same here, and its >50* outside around here. I'm already looking into larger radiators and a reroute.

Aside from that I still need exhaust, a clutch, 1.8 diff and to get rid of these 16s and get some 6ULs. Car projects are never "finished" lol.

One man's trash is another's treasure I guess.

I never could get my car to make decel pops, even with decel fuel cut turned off.
I love the sound.
