here is a quick vid of m TT C6 on low boost. 8psi only (around 550whp) car put down 820whp @ 14psi. I will be ordering a new boost controller soon and take the boost up to 14psi for a week. and then it will get new mods and shoot for 1000+ on race gas!:D

does ok @ this boost. when I had at 14psi, the car will not hook even in third:eek2:

couple of runs in Mexico (no races)

Yea I noticed and I did mention it to the tuner. he said its ok on E85. and since I am rebuilding it in few weeks I thought I will just leave it as it is. I will get a boost controller in few days and when I take the boost up, I will make sure the tune is right with no problems...... Thanks Fran:thumb:

Edit: there is damage to the engine already, thats why I kinda dont care. I know I shouldnt be driving it hard, but you know how it feels driving a boosted vette haha. we did a compression test and it was around 120-125 on all cylinders!! :(

Damn 45 hp per lb of boost is insane.

I am just guessing those numbers... we didnt actually put it on the dyno... but the car feels like a ~550whp corvette. I will be shooting for as much as those turbos can take.... hopefully we will break that 1000hp mark! :) those are rated @ 1100-1200hp (~550HP each) according to the shop that made the kit.... I guess we will see soon :)

nothing special really... just a darton sleeved LS2, 427ci, and probably RPM T6060 built transmission and rear end.... twin turbo kit going to be the same except I am going to heat wrap all these pipes. and I am putting a real boost controller. eboost2. the one I had was a junk. when we set it at 14psi. it will creep out to 17psi... so I throw that one out and now running on the wastgates springs only.....

Low compression on all cylinders sounds more like an error in the testing method rather than a hurt motor.

this thing drinks oil like crazy... which also tells me that the rings/pistons might be damaged...!! I am going to rebuilt it anyway to lower the compression so we will see...

also the shop that did the compression test been building engines for 20years I am sure they know how to do a compression test? I dont know!

Your not having AIR do the build

I decided to sell the car. but If I keep it. I have few shops in mind including AIR. but still not sure. If the car doesn't sell in one week. I will rebuilt it. any tips on what shop would be qualified to do the build?
