I see no exhaust, are you running straight pipes? Reason I ask is I have a very similar build going on and should be done in September. We have everything figured out up to the end of the down pipe but we are now looking into a cat-back (even though there will be no cat). Would like your input.

My bad, on work computer and it locks ups and feezes a ton when a thread has picture or videos. I got fed up and skipped to the end.

I've got an open pipe that attaches to the DP, and dumps in front of the rear axle. You can kind of see it in the last picture of the first post. On the street, I have another pipe that comes down to 3" to a muffler.

I've been told some supra guys have been using a 4" muffler that quiets things down to near stock levels, but barely drops any power. I don't know any specifics, but have been thinking this direction. Sounds like something like that may be perfect for a sneaky street build like yours.

I will look into the 4" idea. Two personal requirements for me is not super loud and not ricey sounding. Stock look is prefered but not too picky on looks. Message me if you find something in the future. Congrats BTW.

I know a certain someone that did there own standing mile via GPS and datalogger in the middle of the desert. Pump gas, meth, 2.34 long rod, 35R and some BC cams and they his 175 So basically 530-550whp with an engine that makes it's torque in high RPM.

So you can have an idea if you're gonna get the boot.

Yeah, i didn't ever want to deal with vaccum lines popping off. Stupid way to loose a race and i had a million other things to worry about with this car. Chasing loose vaccum lines and blown intercooler hoses is not something i want to do. So i replaced every vaccum line in the car (even the ones to the map sensors) with A/N Stainless lines.

No filter required....anything stupid enough to get near that turbo when it's at 30K rpm deserves whatever it gets *grin*

This was awesome...i fought with this cooling system for two days before we finally realised we didn't need it and just drained the damned thing. Car ran beter without the coolant in it (more heat build up) and the top of the engine was not just cool...but cold after a run.

Fascinating. I saw a V8 running on methanol develop frost on the intake just from blipping the throttle, but I never would have guessed that it could make a dent in the heat from combustion during an actual run.

I guess I won't get the "boot". Not expecting to be close to 500 hp
Thanks

I guess from a quick search that some dsm guys including shep at one time(don't quote me on that) was not running coolant when using methanol...BUT they had hard filled the block

yeah but keep in mind that's a 1/4 mile pass. Yeah, you can see Shep did run with a completely blocked front end. Though he may have kept the rad to just act a large heatsink....don't know that much on the specs of his meth setup.

Good to meet you too. I had a great time this weekend. In Williams AZ now, on the way back home.

The best run we had this weekend on E85 was 191.4mph. The weather was great, but the altitude kept the boost levels and power down a bit.

The track surface was really smooth, though a little dusty. Everyone was complaining of wheel spin on the fresh asphalt, but I'm sure that will get better with time. The car ran straight as an arrow, and was so easy to drive. I can't tell you how many people asked how we went so fast on 225 tires. (*Beauty of AWD) The logs show some tire slip compared to the official speed, so we did lose a little there too.

We're going to see if we can't get everything together, and try again at Texas in a couple of weeks.
