    lol.
    If my managment could support more power I'd just turn up the boost. 8psi is just getting started. My turbo is supose to be good for 250-300hp.

    Thanks, that video does'nt do the ride justice. It has a nice hard pull in all the gears...just not hard enough to stay away from the vett's lol

    I'm supprised you aren't winding the gears out more with the turbo. I shift at about 5300 but that's because I'm N/A (at the moment) and there isn't anything to really be had above that. I love that grin at the end just barely visible with the helmet on. :lol:

    If you take a look at my dyno sheet it's power band is 3000-5000 RPM's. The car does run faster if I shift no later then 5000 RPM's.

    Just need to get tuned a little better and tweek on the exhaust. I think your still a little small on the exhaust end of things. Course you could always open up the rest of the piping on the pressurized side too to get a bit more flow but you still need out flow. I'm going to go with 2 1/2" pipe for the pressurized side and at least 2 1/2" if not 3" on the exhaust side when I eventually go turbo. Man I wish money grew on trees. :lol: Takes so long to accumulate parts.
