I plan to drive it Saturday to cars and coffee in Prarieville i need to get my 340lph pump and regulator done and wont have time until after Jan 8th. Hope to get in that week for tune , most of the tune will be done by me driving around before the dyno.

It is running and converter did better than PTC said. 4800 on trans brake and falls 1100 on shifts .
I only took it to 7300 spinning one time and pulled it to 7000 in second gear. Was getting lean in 2nd but got it pretty close to commanded in 3rd up to 6400.
it tends to show lean in 2nd anyway from turning on so fast. 27deg timing with zero knock. Will change fuel pump soon and put an external regulator to make sure I have enough fuel to go 8000 rpm and then schedule dyno time

Car made a few road trips this week. Went to a cars and coffee Saturday morning and put 100 miles round trip. My pcv is in my valley cover under the intake. I used a moroso baffled grommet and thought it would be enough. I was wrong, in 100 miles it pulled a full catch can. ( 4 oz)
So I'm going to pull the intake and add a baffle under the grommet that the pcv goes into. I do love that it's doing its job though.

sounds like you never owned a turbo car before or have never rode in one that was setup correctly. i'm anxious to at least see what it runs.

Ive been suckered in by boost. It's very addictive. especially since if its not fast enough, you dont need to start swapping parts, you swap waste gate springs and just turn it up more.....as long as the fuel sytem is up to snuff and the engine will hold it.

I have rode in one.its awsome.
to awsome since I really dont want to go a cage in this car.
any other car I do will be turbo in the future. This car just means more to me and built what I wanted.not what would be fastest.
going to the dyno Thursday and track Sunday of next week.

I changed the fuel pump today to a 450lph walboro. Put an external pressure regulator as well and a hot kit. I have to meet up with Mavn tomorrow to get a quick connect fitting to slip on my return line at the tank .
tomorrow I'll also put a fresh fuel filter, new o2 sensors, change the oil and go through my valve train to get ready for the dyno on Thursday.
also I got a set of 3" extensions 18" long for the dyno after we tune through the exhaust. I will drop the exhaust and run the extensions to see what I'm losing through the 2.5" bassani dual exhaust

Geoff Skinner at engine power systems (former owner/founder of Thunder Racing)

he and I both tune it.
changed the fuel pump,oxygen sensors and fuel filter today. Also changed the oil . I went for a drive and car feels strong, air fuel is at 11.7/1 air fuel until I get on the dyno. Start out safe. Timing is at 27deg and no sign of knock.

This is open headers
went in with maf hooked up to compare ve table to maf. Maxed maf out at 5700 rpm.
went speed Density and picked up to 520 rwhp. Leaned out to 12.6 air fuel and picked up to 526. Through bassani 2.5" true dual out the back.
opened the headers to 18" x3" diameter extensions and went up to 535 . Added timing in 2degree incraments to find 31 deg best at 543 rwhp.
went back through exhaust and dropped to 538 up top but midrange was down 20 or so.
