The boost on 91, I believe was around 22. The dip on the graph is from the tires spinning in the rollers. We cinched it down hard and lowered the tire pressure but the 4 wheel Mustang dyno had smaller drums and it still slipped. You could hear the motor suddenly accelerate around 3,500. Plus, there was tire rubber everywhere.

While waiting for body & paint, I been restoring other parts. Here's the dash with the only visible non OEM looking gauge being water temp. Other non-essential gauges (boost, oil pres.) are stowed in the glove box. The speedo was replaced with a retro 120 mph Speed Hut GPS unit with fuel gauge, high beam and turn signal indicators. Scrolling through different windows on it, 0-60, 1/4 mile, altimeter, top speed and other things can be reviewed.

I restored a period AM radio but it's gutted and doesn't work. Just a visual. Plus, there isn't a loud speaker, which you couldn't hear anyway over the PPG gears and near solid motor mounts.

How's does the tranny work since the rotation is reversed?

^^ A special ring and pinion is used that allows the ring gear to be on the other side of the pinion. This reverses the direction of the ring gear/ diff and axles. The transmission gears still sees the same direction as it came from the factory and don't notice any difference with the ring gear flipped.

Nice! Is that a custom ring and pinion or off the shelf?

The extra weight, complexity and parasitic drag of AWD doesn't really help when there is very little weight on the front wheels of a rear engine bug. IMO.
