Can't wait to quote that.

In all seriousness, 400-500 should be plenty.

Well it's around 300-350 now, I hope with more boost I break 400. This thing flows over 60lb/min, I would think it could make more than 400.

Only way I'm giving you 50 is if you mail me that alternator board I need.

Really? What cause?

If by "not loyal to the cause" you mean trying new things and pushing limits and sharing my successes and failures for everyone to learn from, then yeah, I'm guilty. I'm about to build a new setup that's uncommon (high boost, high comp) and I'm going to share how I did it and how it works and if **** blows up, I'll share that too. It's how I roll.

If you were making 300-350 you would trap a lot faster than 83mph in 1/8 mile. I did 90mph in 1/8 at less than 300whp

no, as in, helping Rick successfully waste tens of thousands of dollars by helping violate the terms and conditions of the sale of homemadeturbo.com and effectively turning it into a ghost town.

The owners of mt.net also own homemadeturbo.com now as well, and if you're still associated with reelhomemadeturbo, then there's a conflict of interest and you should still not be allowed back here.

When I was on this forum back in the day, it was a TIGHT group of people. Everyone had the others back, and helped each other out. The HMT group was the same way. We stayed together, did things our way. Not much different than it was here. I didn't tell Rick to buy HMT though.

Soviet, yes the MPH is low, you are right. It cuts out bad up top, I have ignition problems under load. I'm upgrading it when I put the MS3 in.

because deep inside a compound setup is something I'd love to do and it bothers me how you're doing it.
