Default couple vids of my failboat

Ok finally got a few shitty clips of my failboat tonight. It's going to rain next week so I thought I'd take it for a little drive with the wife tonight before it goes back into garage.

There were some retarded issues:
1) with a passenger and full tank of gas (about as heavy as the car can get) it still barely hit 8psi......more like 7
2) couldn't floor it in 2nd cause with all the added weight and gaytarded weight transfer as well as my fenders not being pulled it was rubbing like a ****
3) fucked up transient throttle settings so shifting fast at high rpm would cause the car to go SUPER rich for a second and jerk like a retard. so I had to granny shift that bitch. I'll get that squared away soon.

Ok no more ricer excuses, onto the vids:

I repeat myself like a giant ------




She started walking onto the road and I'm like "WTF YOU DOIN???"




I need a damn boost controller

Seems decently quick!

You need to duct tape your wife to the seat, that way the camera won't shake so much.

I need a camera mount asap.....

In other news, I'm already getting bored of 8psi. Need to pick up one of those cheap mbc's everyone's running. I think 14psi should hold me over for a few months

Feels like 200whp to me but may be 220-230.

Its about even with my friends 2005 stage2 STi that put down 280whp and traps 106 in the quarter mile.

We went a bunch of times, we'd be dead even til about 4th, then 4th-5th he'd start very slowly creeping away.


I'm hoping for 250-260 once I turn it up to 14psi.....Key word hoping
