Bipes pulls timing in relation to boost. More than likely it is pulling too much timing which would explain the lack of power and popping.

I don't know if I missed it, but do you have a fuel pressure gauge?

Don't change anything, just enjoy it. By spring, it should still be running and you can sell it as a running car instead of a project, like many do. Just my old man .02.

Or get a wideband. If we don't see your car for sale in spring, we will force you to get a wideband or we will ban you. Not really, I just made that part up.

well... he is running a turbo system + a dry nitrous shot. without engine management... so I imagine the engine won't last till spring if he hits the "go baby go" button on the shifter.
