Thanks guys! I enjoy the car when I can get it out to the track. I have some other upgrades scheduled for this winter.....thinking about a small shot of nitrous and redoing all of the turbo oil/coolant fittings. I'm hoping for low 11's one day :twisted:

Raced at the Mopar Nats - 11.948@116.98

Just got back from the mopar nationals. Had a great weekend there and made lots of good passes. I ended up losing to James Reeves (black omni) in the 2nd round of the heads up FWD shootout class but I ran my best #'s yet: Reaction Time -.014 60ft = 1.892 330ft = 5.091 1/8th = 7.731 1/8mph = 91.45 10...

318whp/313wtq SRT4 turbo'd 2.0L

I've posted this on a few other forums so I figured I'd throw it out here: http://dunawayphotography.com/jasonmisc/dyno-flip.jpg This was at 16 psi on a stock SRT4 turbo. Boost tapered to 13psi at redline (thus the drop in HP/TQ). Timing was conservative, AFR's in the mid 11's. Actually started the ...

I had to have an oil passage welded up and redrilled. The first few photos on my site show it....that is a 2.0L head gasket. That was it - everything else was a direct fit. Nice thing about the swap was that both manifolds worked perfectly (of course) and it has the upgraded valvetrain parts (lifter...

Tristate at the "Spring Fling" day for turbo dodge peeps. I'm having some issues still.....got a weird stumble from 2k-4k rpms now.....it is a never ending battle! I will tell you that the pass felt really good.....it made it down the track quick. I spun until 3rd gear...but once it grabbed traction...

12.7@112mph

I posted this over on the .org but I figured I'd do so here as well: I FINALLY got my car together and made it to the track....it's been 2 years and I was ready (but very rusty at launching). It was set on 13-14psi and tuned just enough not to blow the engine but not really tuned well (I'm having LC...

I'm not sure what grade material was used. I changed the oil after 100 miles and there wasn't anything in it....so I'm not certain if something made it to the pump or not. I'm looking at DCR oil pump gears now....hopefully I can get hooked up :)

I did get a response from Melling. I was called and asked about the details of my setup. They said they take this kind of stuff seriously and they have been in contact with Gary Howell to discuss the cause. They basically said I reached the limit of the pump, which to me sounds odd since I was only ...

As posted on .org: I was told by a friend who used to run a tuner shop that he has seen first hand melling oil pumps fail repeatedly. He actually told me not to use it but I didn't listen. I installed the pump and packed it full of assembly lube and oil. I did put 190 miles on it so I would assume i...

Some dude on .org is suggesting it's my TTI UDP. I've ran it for 70k miles and no problems, both boosted and NA. I'm not sure what to think about that suggestion......I do have the stock pulley so I could use that but I'm shooting for 300whp on the SRT4 turbo so any little bit will help....but if I ...

YEAH - to the tune of $700 when it's all said and done.....

....I just sent some hate mail to melling. I'm sure it won't do anything but it made me feel a little better. At least I can take away some business from them by spreading the word....

Why not to use a melling oil pump

I posted this on the .org but figured I'd do it here as well...... Behold......melling quality: http://www.dunawayphotography.com/jasonmisc/170s.JPG This is after 190 miles on a brand new built motor. Luckily, thanks to my nifty oil pressure gauge, the only damage was bearings and the crank. I may n...
