got the boost portion of the map roughed in (very low timing) and good god.

it's only running 6.5 pounds of boost and spins the tires almost all the way to ~40MPH :D and im planning on taking this thing all the way to 20PSI when the motor is broken in :D

Typhoon/Syclone solenoid? I'm thinking about running that one for boost control. I don't really need it right now because minimum boost with my WGA is 15psi. Someday I may want to crank it up though. :D

Car looks great, by the way. It would look even better with a fog light bumper :P . I'm looking forward to seeing some good numbers from this thing.

yeah its the typhoon solenoid.

i wanted to use a foglight bumper but it wouldnt work with my intercooler :(

anyway, im beyond pissed at the car, burst transmission cooler lines FTL. nothing got hurt but if someone offered me a decent amount of money the keys would be in their hand before they could change their mind.

it wasnt that. it was the hose itself. it was 400PSI rated line

i'm just chalking it up as a fluke due to a small kink in the line. its being handled though.

but anyway, took some pics.

might need the plasma cutter to make these fit...

Image

a buddy let me borrow these when i went to the track. he neglected to mention their 26X8X15's (for his SRT)

Image

Image

they fit better then i though though (got them on the studs but wheel wouldnt go around) so hopefully 24.5X8X14's will fit the bill..
