Why, so I have to spend the extra money on the block and head, etc....

I was hitting 18psi at 3400rpm (accidentally) before setting up my ebc in adaptronic. This is on my 1.6... Now I'm putting together another 1.6 with b6t pistons, better moly rings, mtuned rods, and billet OP gears. And I didn't spend over $900 total. So I'll still hit max boost before any of the vaginas on this forum, and I'll be running around 20psi to max out my t3 60trim and making around 300whp.

I don't care who you are, if you say you can build a 1.8 for the same as a 1.6 when you started with a 1.6, you are a retard. I would have to buy the block, buy a NB head, make/buy a new manifold. Hello, thats at least $1k extra. Its not like I'm not already making face melting power with my 1.6.

But keep the thread on course and be jealous you can make it to our dyno day. Otherwise I will have to beat you into submission.

right i remember that but i never felt it was an accurate measurement. reason: supposedly on a lower reading dyno he made 255whp with 14psi, a smaller exhaust and smaller intercooler, where as i made less at 15psi on a dynojet with better exhaust and intercooler and more timing

I'll take the over on neo, y8s and braine being back together by 11/14.

I'm doing an alignment on my car this weekend, looming under the hood and going for some logging runs. Interior is all in except for a box for my ECU to sit on the floor under the carpet. 11/14 looks good for me. Not sure I want to run my RA1s up to the event in November though. My bald ES100s will make a nice burnout vid though.

It probably does nothing! Car felt the same after I swaped compressor wheels and rebuilt it. Hopefully my tune it's good, car is tuned by me so we will see

I've logged another 1k miles without another occurrence. I think you can call that problem temporarily solved. I'm going to be sticking a vband there to eliminate the slip joint. Thus permanently fixing the slipping slip joint issue.

Hey, I wasn't there when said exhaust issue happened. When I pulled the system out it was in one piece!

It was the stiffness of the flexes. Like 100ft from Frank's place there was a crucial dip in the asphalt and I hit and BANG. The slip joint came right out and the car was LOUD. We turned around and went back, jacked the car up, retightened the clamp, broke the clamp from "overtightening", frank too off his exhaust tip and gave me one of his clamps, I put it on and tighted the [email protected] out of it again to crush the slip part of the joint. Holding strong ever since.

Mine only gained 10hp. Not the bang for the buck I was looking for.

Now all he's gotta do is throw some carpet over his ECU and his car is done, right?

i made sure to stomp a lot to test the reliability of this setup.

also, he needed to uncheck his "fix timing at 15 degrees" box. I bet EGTs on the drive home were like 1800F the whole time. my leg was crispy.
