Default To the Edge...till we all get off.

The whole purpose of this thread if to annouce that I am 98% certain that I am at the point with my car where I am satisfied.
I have another compressor housing that has bolt flanges on it, and I would like to swap that on. I also would like to do some welding on some compressor piping.
Other than that, my 460's, my current turbo, my current Megasquirt...everything is how I want it. FINALLY.
I dyno'd at 209 whp / 206 wtq, but that was on MS-1 parallel like 1 year an 1/2 ago with an inacurate CAS, on 11.9psi. I now run MS2 standalone on all stock sensors (except GM IAT) and I have MBC, set between 12-14 psi. I can tell you it runs WAY smoother and I'm guessing maybe 225 whp / 215wtq at 13psi?
My ultimate goal was 1hp per 10lbs. My car weighs 2350 without me, so I figured I'd need about 235 whp to be happy. I can say, I am way happy, as I street raced an LS-1 T/A that showed me a 13.3 second timeslip, and he beat me by 1 car just before the finish line. I smoked him by 3 cars off the line, but he reeled me in.
I'm not bitching, I have a little turbo, he has a motor full of torque. I drive my car to work and get about 29mpg. He also stated, that after his time slip, he added headers and a full exhaust.
Maybe this is my calling: Time to lift my truck, finish my bike project, finish my ******, build a garage, and STFU.
I'm out?
If that's the case, I'm here as a supporting member towards this great forum. Here to provide advice and answer questions in ways other members refuse to.
Otherwise, I'm just a fly on the wall.

cool story bro.
13.3 tells us nothing about how fast the T/A you raced is. A trap speed would.
You should heed your calling and STFU
jk lol

Thanks for kidding, but I'm serious.
What's it all about?
Is it not about doing what makes me, only me; happy to achieve the goals I set for myself.
Otherwise, why did I subscribe for the past 3 years? To make drunken posts and try to fit in the same high school clique I never fit in? While I excelled in mathematics (apparently I excelled in spelling too, even though I'm wasted more than 85% of members are sober) I was able to figure out volumetric efficiencies, compressor sizing /boost / fueling efficienceies.
BTW, I guarantee that if I blew into a breathalyzer, the result would be at least a 2.4% BAC. Who's spelling is F'd up? not mine...
