Sorry my wideband crapped out and Ive tried multiple replacement sensors but none are working, so Iíll have to find a new one.

Oh and I donít see why not. As long as you dont need any more than the stock 58ish psi, it will work without a problem. If you ever need more than that youíll have to replace it with an actual regulator.

First run of the day with the new rear and tires! Gearing is spot on, crossing the line at the very top of 4th. I waited 20 minutes and went again but the clutch slipped badddd. Its a twin disk mcleod with probably less than 10k on it. Let it cool and babied the launch and it held, but my 60ft was trash. Gonna wait another hour and try again.

Cool, Thanks! I couldnít believe I pulled that off for my first run. After that the clutch started slipping, then I let it cool for an hour and didnt slip it as much on the launch. I then did two test runs to see if it was still slipping, and that yielded two 11.8s. After the clutch was ok I hot lapped it and did two 11.1ís. Then the 3rd honda for the day blew up and sprayed down the track. My launching was getting really crappy at the end of the day because they watered down the box too
much and it was spinning. Clutch feels fine now though, but I donít trust it. Will need to updrade sometime next year.

Default Bypass valve

How you have your lines configured to close at work and open during cruise?

I removed the solenoid all together and then connected the V side of the bypass to regular manifold vaccum. I left the bottom port on the valve open. At idle the valve gets vaccum and stays open. When boost comes up and vaccum goes down, the spring in the valve closes the butterfly.
