This build rocks!

The work you have done is absolutely amazing.

When you take a car as far as this one, you are going to have a few more setbacks then the typical greddy build. Just keep moving forward, the light at the end of the tunnel is growing brighter by the day!

This thing absolutely makes my build look like a hack job.

Funk dat. Your build is fantastic. You should be proud. There are always nicer cars no matter how much time/money you put into it. It is going to be fast and function >> form.

418 HP
285 FTLBS
18psi
8000RPM


we kept it pretty conservative. i decided against reving it to to the moon although we did bring it to 8200 and it didnt make a diffrence so i kept it at 8, once we got it to free rev nice it went smooth. its running in mapdot, tps dot worked like ****. this is on the wastegate spring too, no boost control. i have some boost creap, like 4-5 psi of boost creap. my wastegate is to small. i have a 13.5 psi spring combo.

vids coming soon!!!!

With the 8K redline you have a pretty broad TQ band to use too. Sweet.

The sound is interesting too. Its not nearly the incoherent wall of sound I have usually gotten from high output turbo 4s. You can really hear the pulses distinctly, which is awesome.

If that's a hack then everything I have ever done is polished manure with a bow on it. Awesome work.
