The last three runs were the result of a wastegate ready to come off. Finally found it after the 5th run that several of the bolts were gone :rockbike: I guess that I will be safety wiring them this time :rofl: What really sucks is I wouldve been in the 100 mph club if the wastegate hadnt come loose:punchballs:

Daaaang boy that things cruising. I honestly didnt think it felt THAT fast but thats probably cause 1. its a TC and naturally cushy and comfortable and 2. you were prolly wussing it down the trail when i was riding.

You are really making some horse power! The first run is almost 105 MPH! That's enough power to go into the 12's. To get to those ET's though, it takes a more "strip" oriented suspension (for the 1.6-1.7 sixty foots needed).

Great job on putting it together! Didn't get a chance to speak to you at CatJam, but I got an opportunity to check out your handiwork. It performs a good as it looks!

holset hx35 on a custom twin scroll header(by me), ported head and intakes, boport 1.9 cam, stinger 3" downpipe modified for the holset and external wastegate, magnaflow mufflers, 85# injectors, Bamafuel computer(megasquirt)(still with problems:mad: ), Stinger FMIC kit. Suspension is stock springs all around. Bilstien struts in front and monroe sensatracks in back. They were in it when I got the car, But I have yet to have it spin on the street or the track in 1st or second gear on 20 psi boost running on 225/60/16 bridgestone potenzas. Thats what these runs were done on. I plan to run 30 plus but I dont want to tweak the car, hence my other post for subframe connector pics, lol.
At catjam, It was still running on the factory stuff, maxing out the VAM and injectors at 5K on 12psi. Thats as low as the wastegate will go, lol
