for Trade with U!
PM me to trade.


so we did some street racing today, I was turning like 107-110 MPH by the finish and its like 1100 feet instead of 1320. Im thinking that the power is pretty healthy at 18 PSI boost, because my car seriously cannot cut faster than a mid 2 second 60 foots with the poor launch spool im getting. I dont get 18 lbs boost untill second gear with my .70 a/r turbine housing, and this week when finish converting my turbo flange to fit the new .58 a/r housing, i should get alot sooner spool. im also going to wrap my uppipe to help with the spool time. I love the motor Ron made me, I honestly broke it in very roughly just how it should be. we did partial throttle .6 bar pulls from 4-6k rpms for the first 100 miles and were boosting more like .8 bar after around 200 miles. I guess its alittle buit of a debate on how to break in a motor, but it seemed to workk pretty welll. Now when i drive around, i dont have to worrie about downshifting and running the motor up to redline for pretty good periods of time. Without getting my self in trouble, i took a 400 mile road trip with a friend, and we averaged 120 the whole way, and i never experienced any issues with engine heat, oil temp or anything else. We didnt burn any oil off ar anything either so Im very pleased.
