Thanks man! Me too.. was pretty deflating to have to go through, but like I said lesson learned.. car is running so strong.. can’t wait to enjoy it for a full season next year. I have a video my friend took as I pulled out from his shop, do you or anyone else know if loading it to YouTube and sharing the link is the only way to post it on the forums?

should be a spicy unit when finished
She’s finished now! Basically the only question left is just how close it is to the fueling limit.. so next spring I’ll get it on the Dyno, check fuel pump and injector duty cycle on high boost (19psi) and make sure I’m not pushing the fueling too far.. I think it might have enough room for another couple of pounds but to be honest I don’t think I’d even bother… on 19 pounds this thing rips pretty hard.. I imagine it’s somewhat close to 500 at the wheels up there.

Quick little 2nd gear pull, didn’t wring it out, probably hit 8-10psi here before shifting. Wastegate is routed back into the exhaust!
