Well had this thing out earlier this month and gave it a good thrashing at the track and it ran faultlessly and Im super happy. It was a pretty hot day and unfortunately the track was quite slippery so I wasn't able to get a good time in but was super happy with how it ran. I was running full interior and full exhaust for the day and didn't use boost per gear or launch control as I ran out of time to configure it all. But it was still a great day with friends and netted a best time of the day of 12.5 on a 2.8 60ft @ 120mph - yes it was that bad off the line. I tried all sorts of different launch rpm and even went back to launching in 1st which I don't normally do. Best 60ft I ran was 2.19 and that was after a big 2nd/3rd gear burnout to get the tires super hot. I think I need to get more savage on the burnout to get the tires really hot, then also give them a quick scuff before staging. Ive been too pussy on the burnouts as I'm worried about drive train but it seems to be holding so may as well try next time.
I was looking back at the notes on the setup when I ran the 11.8@121mph and I was running the side pipe and it was a night event. I've got an idea the exhaust is a slightly restriction so I think the next step will be to finally build a 3 inch exhaust as its currently running 2.5inch with a muffler and reso. Ive also got a new turbo on order so that should wake it up a bit, plus im piecing together a 8.9:1 bottom end as this one is 8.0:1 so a little lazy. I'm going for a good responsive package rather than outright power.
Anyway, here's some photos:
