Default Video of my new diy turbo kit

Just finished up some tuning on my diy turbo kit and took a quick video. It's a 1st-3rd and a little bit of 4th gear. I wasn't banging the gears because I still only have about 400 miles on the new spec stage 2 clutch. Afr is around 11.1 to 12.3 or so while boosting and I'm running about 8psi. This car is now a blast to drive!! Night and day difference to my old nitrous setup. I love it.

I made the down pipe at work with a little help, 2.5" mandrel dumped under the car. t28 from a r34 gtr at 8psi, HKS manifold, afx wideband, Spec Stage 2 clutch, voodoo box fuel control, TurboXS rfl bov (I don't know why you can't hear it in the video but its Very loud ) Ebay intercooler that works great, diy piping, and a poop load of modification to Everything to make it all work!

The noise at the end is the expansion cracks in the road. Arkansas has the Worst roads in the world, I'd rather drive on coble stone all day. Yeah it's that bad. So, how does it compare to your setups. same, slower, ect.

Driven through Arkansas. Definately worst roasts and worst roadkill on the way across the country. Nice turbo setup. Looks like fun.

Have you ever been to the philadephia area, our roads are horrendous. I used to check in car carriers at work when we would get new car shipments, the drivers who have driven all over the country would complain to me how bad our roads are

No matter where one lives, you always have the worst roads in the country, without fail. I believe this is the conjugate of "The grass is always greener on the other side."

the roads in my area are awesome! we contribute about 50-70% of the state's revenue and get about .000005% back for road improvements.

Richmond's solution for us? NoVa gas tax.

When I grew up in the Detroit area, I swore the roads were the worst. They still don't pave half of them. You know, keep that 'rustic' feel for the locals. Then in Houston, the freeways are great. Like a roller coaster. Up and down over the surface streets, which themselves are torn to bits most of the time. Now in Atlanta well, get out of the city and they're great. But any divet in the road makes my *** hurt in the LE, and has me cussing about road funding.

Nice looking vid, btw!

SINCE this is now the bad roads thread, i feel the need contibute. the roads around here have that moonscape look and feel. chuck holes as far as the eye can see. at least 75% of the vehicles i service have at least one bent wheel. come to northeast and we reward you with a bent wheel

Dertoit has the worst roads I've ever driven on. We don't have a weight limit on our roads, and the job to repave/repair goes to the lowest bidder. I went though a pothole a few weeks ago that killed my driver side front ($110 for a new Konig Helium). That was sweet.
