Default ITT: Mike swaps a jet engine into his Corvette



Quote:
Car is set at only 12psi, wanted to see how it would do against my buddies full bolt-on, -2F, stretched R1

Obviously didn't brake boost or anything to try and get boost built before the hit. It was a friend, so I wasn't concerned about the actual outcome. I was pacing him when boost came in.
That's low boost. Lol.

Notice the twin Tial Bovs. There's a 3rd one lurking around somewhere too.

Looks like the Vette is running without the hood in place.

Dude, I've been up to alot...

The miata is running...but still need to touch alot of minor details...devils in the details.

Building a pro street busa...just waiting on some piping to do the turbo and that'll be done. Putting one of those new precision ceramic bearing, billet compressor wheel 6262's on it. Shooting for low low 7's around 200.

The vette just got finished up. Had it tuned up to 28ish psi...at 12psi I ran that decently modded r1 and was actually reeling him in when I shifted to 4th. That would have been ugly on kill mode.

Then I still got the 636...It's slow but fun in corners haha

Hey Mike, welcome back.

Some ******* spammer took my email address from your old email address and I've been getting all kinds of shitty offers!

Wow, I've been waiting for this update...and it was worth it.

Subscribed for pics of the projects, especially that insane Miata.

Probably won't make it to Kemah this weekend, in-law obligations.

Take care man, glad to have you posting again.

Any details or a thread on the Miata? You know it's gonna suck for autocross right? All in all I'm really jealous of all your toys. I've got a lightly modded 06 Gsxr 750 and couldn't even imagine piloting a turbo drag busa.

This Corvette is badass. Always wondered what happened to the Miata too, can't wait to see a finished product when you get it done.
