My toy won't be tuned until the 9th(Friday), so I am hoping to find someone to dune with over that weekend.  And that all depends on if my new mods even work.

And, any news?

My new turbo/header combo didn't work. The set-up did what I was shooting for, but went WAAAAY too far! Long story short, my exhaust was too restricted and the turbo too small. I have another turbo being built, and will try again. Do you have your new transaxle in and buggy back together?

Well sucks that it didn’t run like you thought.  I know you will get right. 

Motor and tranny are in, just need to finish up.

Dsrace knows all my secrets :m Let's put it this way, I  achieved 4psi boost at 1500 rpm(my buggy idles at 1000 rpm) and maxed out the turbo at 3000 rpm. He had to get extreme with the timing at that point, and there was nothing left but very hot air going in the cylinders.  I hear that isn't a good combination!

twins would make 0 turbo lag and should be good to 6k rpm  ;D ;D ;D ;D ;D ;) :m

fab, I am planning a trip to LS this weekend.  If you happen to be there, look me up. I am going to try to find a spot in Cowboy, with a few others.

50/50 chance right now.  Thanks for the heads up!
