10.9 @ 130

Default 12.085 @107.32 - - hit fuel cut - e'town

IDRC summer Slam - had a blast

My car was running like a champ - except the darn intercooler pipes kept exploding and I was having big troubles with boost cut in 5th gear

Had one real solid run

60' 1.691
330 4.965
1/8 7.703
mph 90.08
1000 10.66
- - - - thats when I hit the boost cut
1/4 12.085 @ 107.32

here's the only other run I got off without the i/c hose poping off . . .

60' 1.806
330 5.195
660 7.954
mph 89.19
1000 10.302
1/4 12.292 @115

Special thanks to Chris Rado for helping me out with hose clamps and couplings after i got stuck a couple of times - he is a great person and his Celica is one sick car !

Congrats on the new times.

What 60ft times were you pulling when you hit the 12.0@107. With the 107 trap speed, you can def tell something was wrong (is fuel cut).

Were you slipping the clutch or dumping it on launch?

Wish i could have made it to E-Town today. Anyone check out the bikini contest?

the 60' time is posted above

I use a slipping first then poping out motion with high rpms on the clutch

I left before the bikini contest to avoid the weekend traffic

Trust me - I saw so much half way undressed women that weekend I had my fill - They all walk around with a tiny string up their ass showing over thoer waste line and a tatto of some sort over the crack of thier ass - they don't leave too much to the imagination

I would have rather stayed to see if the turbonetics car was going to be the first into 200 mph after setting a world record in qualifying and to see if Pruven Performance would set a new record with non nos dsm

But either way - the prosepct of fighting all that traffic at the end of a holdiay weekend was not that appealing

So what is it: 12.085 or 12.85? Are you trying to pull something here?

Al,

Good job! You almost had me. That's a strong 1/8th and right in the hunt with evo....'s 7.66.

Which is it though, a 12.85 or a 12.085?

I'm hoping to get a new clutch in this week (yes, it finally had enough) and possibly run at MIR. It's a little far for you but are you going? I need some wrx competition.

Later,
Phil

I think Al meant 12.085. That confused me as well from my orig post. Based on his 1/8 time.

The women @ E-Town def. like to wear the bare minimun.

Al,

That is a damn fine 60 foot time and at 12.085...man so close...so close...

I'm sorry, what is "boost cut" is that fuel cut?

Good Job! (I want Al's car tuned for 91 octane though)

Yeah - I skipped the extra zero in there - its 12.085

it was very frustrating - very upsetting to have so many problems - but at least I got off some decent runs

I had the car jacked up and down several times - crawling under it to keep re-attaching that i/c coupling - - now i am getting barbs welded on that sucker and a bar to support the joint


I cant make it down there - BUT I will be comming back to e'town in about two more weeks for another stab at it

Just keep in mind myh sti gears are too low so I have an extra 4 - 5 shift factored in there

I am hoping to get some taller tires or diferent gears that can strech my 4th gear to at least 118 or mayber 120 mph - with that and my other tricks a low 11 is possible - all up to the gears

Good numbers Al -

The Turbonetics Celica already has gone 200 mph at the last E Town event

Thumbs up Congrats Al!

Congrats Al! I'll post it up as soon as I can at the Subaru 1/4 Mile Registry. I'm at work right now.

Damn that's fast! Only 3 years ago, people's eyes were popping out of their sockets when someone was just touching on the 13 second mark. This is amazing!

First it was the tube right after the turbo - now its the one that goies around the steering knuckle

The blitz kit sucks if you want to run 25 psi

Next time I'm getting a custom made one - - Live and learn

Default Sounds like you just need to sort out some construction details

Good times Al!

I was hoping you'd bust a new record time today, just to keep the contest interesting.

It sure is frustrating when save for a hose clamp or some other $3.00 part you would reach into the 11's.

I take it your going to use a tie bar to carry the pressure thrust, like in fig 5-26 pg 63 in the book "Maximum Boost" ?

Ideal gearing will certainly help to get that last little bit.

Hey Al, make pipe beads and they will never pop off again. You can either use a beading machine ($300), or use a thick bead of epoxy once you have roughened up the pipe surface.

Or, you can waste a ton of money on t-bar clamps and still run the risk of them popping off

Yes - thats true - the NOS is ideal to get you off the line without abusing the heck out of the clutch / transmission - - all you do is launch it regular - well a bit harder than regular and as soon as you get the clutch out you floor it and hit the button for like half a second - wham your spooled up . . the wastegate is open and your ready to shift to 2nd !

Yes - exactly - i'll get those kind olf bars - some turbonetics t strap style hose clamps and extra heavy duty coupling hose - - the blitz stuff is just not up to high boost

As Gregg Pasiley told me - after you get the tie bars then you'll be able to hit max boost and pop your engine !

It was frustrating - but at least I have something to show for it and I had fun and learned some stuff !

The guys at Pruven Performance were able to weld a very nice bead onto the other peice of pipe that was poping off before - its my fault I did not have them put beads on all the pipes

This time I'll get beads all the way around and some bars on the smaller pipes near the turbo

IF the boost is at 25 psi at the manifold after the fmic and after the 3" pipe out of the fmic - - then the boost must be high as hell at the 2" hose when its still hot after the turbo

What are these braces you speak of? Braces between the smaller I/C pipes tying them together?

BTW, how efficient is that Blitz with all the boost/flow you are running? Is it still enough I/C?

Nice times Al.

Glad you finally beat Nathan's time from last year

j/k

Really, nice time.
Maybe once more people use N20 it will become more acceptable.

So this was with the t3/t4?

How much does your car weight?
