Boost comes on real fast and hit 18lbs of boost around 4500. At that point tires were spinning so hard the rear was kicking out and I let out of it. I have not gone past that at the moment as my AFR gauge decided to quit. I am trying to get some time on the dyno to recheck the AFR and see how the numbers have changed. I am running out of time quick. The car is filth dirty and need to be buffed out and waxed. This year is going just to fast. The power is far more violent than the whipple once boost is hit. Will be interesting what it feel like at 6300 rpm. Yes I am smiling now

    Ken,

    Looking forward to seeing you and the car at the Shootout next month. I'm sure it will look and run great.

    Will be limited to 18lbs of boost which it is making on the street. The shootout will give me an oppertunity to see how poor it launches or good. I can than decided on how to work on that. Looks like my options are the manual valve body you told me about. A two step setup to launch and of course a working boost controller to dial up the boost. But for now I want to just have some fun having a running car to race and hang out with the crowd. Got to get off my duff and register tonight

    I'll be doing my shake down passes at the shootout too Ken so there will be two guys at least more worried about dialing in than winning races lol

    OOoOOoO, Ken, you can get some stronger springs in those bad boys! One thing you can do is get a 2-step and use a brake switch to activate it.

    On a side note, I'm sure the car is nice and quick, but your dyno numbers won't necessarily change if your boost doesn't. So my last post was leaning towards power making, but you might as well use the track as the real dyno. It's always the best bet. I'm sure you'll be plenty happy
