Default Remote Mount Turbo

So I've been thinking that maybe the best bet for my NA is to go remote mount..I was wondering if you guys had any advice or tips or....nah I'm just ******* with you...

Wondering what ever happened with the dyno plots the guy at clubroadster never posted since I hate going over there and trying to dig anything up. Did he post them or is he still unheard from?

this is the one to read:

hello all,

just wanted to drop a line here in the northeast section for anyone in the connecticut area.

Saturday, August 23rd, 2008, i will be going to MONGILLO Motors in New Haven CT. at around 9:45 am to do some dyno passes.

the car is pretty much tuned, and i will be doing some final tune tweaking while the car is up on the barrel. there will be some final numbers posted after my runs.

i will do several passes at 5 psi, 10 psi, 15 psi, and 20 psi straight turbo.
i will also try to do several passes at 10 psi and 15psi with the nitrous.

hopefully the car holds together.

anyone can stop by to watch and laugh or cheer or jeer. one way or another this is it for Project Wakazashi.

wish me luck, or not. but if you're in the area - as bob barker would say....
come on down!

-kurt
remember, it's a stock 1.6L with a tiny turbo and a rear mount IC that's not functional.

So it basically stands right where it did last time I looked into it. Guess he did take it seriously when he said "time for me to put up or shut up"

That thread was great entertainment.

Still waiting for dyno plots. He wouldn't even post up a log.

He's set his "LAST VISITED" time to hidden... but you can assume he has logged on and seen the comments and simpy doesn't have the sack to admit he was wrong.

Damn, I wish I had known, I'd have been down to watch that beast

Wonder how he'd feel to have his mighty rear-mount Miata get curb-stomped by an Escort?

ROFL

It was kind of funny to see a lot of the CR.net guys get on his side, then facts started to be said and the opinions shifted...

I will never understand why someone will over complicate something when its not only easier, but more cost effective to do it correctly & efficiently.

He was going to drive over 6 hours just to race me....I thought that was silly. Some 40 year olds never grow up.

Defending one's honor only goes so far, and I'm not so sure that it should apply to the interwebs.

Oh, without a doubt. That's the kind of thing worth taking bets on.
