Default [email protected] first outing. Update. ***[email protected]***

Started some upgrades over the winter and finally got the car back together again. New combo is a 388ci LSX with Dart LS3 heads from Thompson Motorsports with twin Forced Inductions Billet 76mm T4 Borgs, BTE glide, PTC converter, QP fabbed Ford 9" with 4.10 gears and 40 spline axles. Car weighs 3360 with me in it and is primarily a street car that I race once in awhile.Made 3 passes to sneak up on everything, one on gates, one adding 5psi on the dome and the last adding 10psi on the dome. Peaked at 19.8 psi through the traps. Launched real easy on purpose and ramped boost in really slow. Now time to get back to the track and work the first half of the track!

Thank you Matt. Going back to the track tomorrow to make a couple more passes and see if I can shave the times down a little more.

Thank you, the engine is kicking butt so far!! I upped the boost to 21psi and working on the first half of the track now. Went 1.29 60' and [email protected] so far. Lots of room left on the setup. Going back Saturday to leave on more boost, ramp boost in quicker and put another 3-4psi to it.

Thank you guys. I am going back to the track on the 29th and planning to put another 5psi to it for a fastest street car race, but they are thinking of making it no clocks or time slips so people running under their legal cert won't get disqualified so no updates unless it's to say I took home the cash!

I wish I could post videos, but Photobucket is charging to host videos again.

Went to the track again yesterday to run a local fastest streetcar shootout. They decided to give us time slips after all. Made back to back [email protected] passes peaking out at 27.2 PSI. Still could only leave at 7.7 psi and had to ramp in boost slow or the front end would stand up, but made it up on the big end.

Thank you! Stood the car up testing last 2 times I went to the track trying to bring boost in faster and had to back it back down so I dropped the car off today for some wheelie bars. Most of the car was built right in my little 2 car garage by me or my buddy, but figured I would have a professional weld up the wheelie bars since they are moly and I do not have a tig welder. Going to try one more time before the season ends to get that 7 second pass!
