Clutch is definitely not slipping. Any sudden tach jumps are wheelspin.

BOV is a generic all-metal eBay, VTA.

No--Scott's video, not yours. I watched the vid again and think that it's because the road is wet.

My BOV sounds like yours.

Ah. Yeah, I was like "****, if that's 14psi on a T3, and he's spinning 3rd gear, it's hopeless for 300whp"

4th = slips if i take it out and boost hard within 3 seconds of startup :gay: ill post something better tomorrow. that's kevlar for you, holds everything else i throw at it after i drive around town for 2 minutes and it warm ups.

im pretty sure im going to replace the disc with something from clutchnet next spring, but for now when i was boosting before the rain, (road was damp) logging 17psi, it was fine.

I was hoping you wouldn't notice.....i mean:

3rd gear was partial throttle, 4th was WOT. Fast, huh?

Ya 300 RWHP is pretty stupid, getting sideways at 70 MPH is sure fun though.

I should get a ride in a 300+whp car before starting a fund for the GT2871R. :P

you can always turn boost down if it's too scary for you, ma'am.

Sounds awesome.

A part of me regrets not getting this 93 I was looking at. The 1.8's dont rev like the 1.6's do.
