I did! I did!! ;)
2 new throttle cables on the way (one for a back-up), change oil in the Busa and Jeff''s Box, bribe DS into re valving the rear shocks, and fix the boost control issue.. or lack there of. This motor is craving 5 more psi.

did you write down the current valving? prob have to order some valving shims to slow it down one more step. that throttle cable lasted a long time.

I have been researching blowing AND boosting! Any chance of that happening? (I skipped the last several meetings) I was going to offer to have my brother bring it back here, if it just needed fabrication and maintenance. He is supposed to be bringing a transaxle up there for your guy to build.

 :m you are going down that rabbit hole even deeper  :m so i know what your talking about and believe it or not there are a few that are running a super charger and turbo on the ford 2.3 i am running. wakes the bottom end up a lot but not sure how long they live.

here is an in between twin scroll header design. https://www.full-race.com/store/borg-warner-efr/manifolds-efr-series/subaru-impreza-wrx-sti-ej20-25-twinscoll-header-uppipe-turbo-manifold/



this one will haunt your dreams at night  ;D ;D ;)   
https://youtu.be/T7JTRRlSEYI

imo twin scroll might be better than than a sc/turbo combo for duning but ........ you better start attending meetings twice a week at that point  rofl
turbo bong  LMAO

If you go through Wichita, KS you can get E85 and E98 from the pump, (Pit Stop I think. You have to ask for the E98). Or E70 at some Kum &Go's in Tulsa, if you come through Oklahoma. The last place in Oklahoma, before Little Sahara,  will be the Kum &Go at the truck stop on the Cimarron Turnpike.

I was wrong, the station in Wichita is Jump Start. I was told one of the locations has a E98 pump. You have to ask, and they will unlock it. If you wanted to do that, Wichita Dyno knows which one it is.
