    If all goes well it will be on the dyno within the next two weeks. I will street tune it in myself then go see what my base numbers are. After that I might let my local tuner take a swing at it. I took my old 2.3t Ranger to his shop a couple years ago and he found another 40hp in the tune over my best rolling in off the street.

    Looks great. Really like the lack of chrome and polished stuff under the hood.

    Sat down and had to build all new tables for fuel,spark and afr then uploaded my changes. First crank it fired right up and high idled for a min or so about 12.0-1 then settled into a nice 14.2-14.8 idle. Very happy!

    Was sick as hell all weekend so I still haven't changed the clutch,flywheel or got into the axle yet. I did however buy some Moser stock replacement shafts to be on the safe side.

    Do you get any "fluttering" noise when the RPMs are high and you pop off the loud pedal? Don't know anything about that particular BOV and what it can move.

    No flutter,just a loud whoosh when it opens. Its real Forge dual piston which is plenty for this pooch

    That's good. I learned the hard way LOL. Thankfully I did nothing but *possibly* ruin both shaft seals. Not really sure but I replaced them anyway. Now I have enough bypass, added a second valve. Heard it on a couple cars that were cruising at high RPM. Thinking "what the BLUE HELL is all that air hissing from?" It's absolutely insane but being a newb I kept forgetting that loud pedal or not blower's moving all that air all the time...

    I actually held the BOV in my hand on one of the dyno pulls to make sure it wasnt leaking. With 200* air temps coming out of the blower you know the second that BOV opens!!

    If you can ever cram an intercooler into that setup....as Ferris Bueller once said "I highly recommend picking one up"
