Default vid test

barely getting into boost, basically a teaser for when I get this water pump to stop leaking. Hopefully the car will be back together in about another hour

If someone could show me the way to a better file/vid hosting site, that would be neat.

There arent any twisties around here so I'm pretty much limited to crappy roads. For some reason my seems to be puking and dying around 6000 rpm. I probably screwed something up, but otherwise the car seems to be running fine. I'll do another run tomorrow with a ramping boost curve (will rise to 18 psi from 5500 to 7500 rpm) and see if that feels better.

The Crown Prince of Nigeria has offered to buy my house as soon as I send him my bank account details, so I am soon going to upgrade to a T04E and have a lot more top end power.

Oh yeah, here is the vid... Lame, it's the best I could do today.

And someone give me a better video site. Tinypic seems to pixelate the crap out of it. I compressed it down to about 15 meg but it was still super high quality (it was xvid/mp3 instead of avi/wav streams).

Axis Power Racing did me a carbon fiber gauge pod for about 300 bucks a few years back. It replaced the stock binnacle. I dont know if they are still doing carbon fiber projects. It was a one-off part and I dont know if he made any more.

I moved from Tampa area to Tallahassee area and I am selling my old house. But not to a nigerian scammer, to some legit guy. It is under contract now.

Once I have the money from that, I can finish my remaining gun projects and upgrade from
T04B S/.48 Stg 1
to a
T04E .50/.48 stg 3.

The reason- more efficiency, more top end, quicker spool, just a plain better turbo in every way. Bolts right up.

Yes, to4b-s sucks. I had the same thing before. didn't spool till 4k. you'll enjoy the t04e better.


and yes UofACATS I knew he was joking, but I wanted to hear the story about it.
