Welcome aboard Mike.

Interesting setup you have there! Why the 9.5 to 1 compression pistons? What boost level are you running?

I'm sure Stein will chime in soon

Nice build Mike and welcome aboard! Glad to see anothe NB'er. I love the build. One question that I did have is how well the AGX are holding up with those spring rates? I had always heard that they didn't have enough damping to last above 450/300 but that could be internet lore.

The Front Passenger Shock was damaged in the wreck. I gave the entire set to AJ. The Silver car I used as the shell had a set of TIEN Flex's on it. As well as some other goodies like an Extra BBK, tranny, diff, sways, wedsports, ect.

Pics by popular demand.

The white car was what it was before. And the Silver is after the Monster Truck Wreck.

Note the Dyno Graph was the one with the LINK ECU not after the Hydra Upgrade. Which has about 20+ HP and 20+ TQ @ 12-15PSI

yeah, that top end torque drop off sucks a little bit but it really does make up for it in low-mid-range torque. It makes it really fun at the track :-P

There's a pretty good thread going on modifying the B18 manifolds to fit ours in an effort to combat this. The guys with the one-off manifolds have a pretty flat torque curve.
