Default Maybe I SUCK less???

Remember the earlier posts?? A gagillion horsepower being beaten by stock cars? At the track and on the street I notice the same thing, the car starts off ok and VERY quickly falls on it's face....starts to pick up a little, then BAM as soon as it boosts the tires tear loose. Well this has been getting slowly worse since the turbo was installed, and I notice the car is loading up and running rich. I was
Well today Tommy turbo was putting a shiny new waterpump on the T and when it was done he said "hey watch this."
He snapped the throttle and the elbow going into my Throttle body sucked up tighter than a balloon knot... I can only image what it looks like under a load. I am goin to obviously find higher quality connectors. I hope this solves alot of my HUGE bogging problem, and puts my status back from worst driver in the world to the ***** driver status I have worked so hard to maintain.

Jimmy I see what you mean... what we were talking about the other day... Hopefully you get that thing running right!!!!! I think I got the track bug! I wanna go back RIGHT NOW!!! Maybe if I can learn how to drive (shut up Jim) I can get some better times. Chris was so pissed that I beat him! He says he's never going again!
