Good to hear mate. Better boost response? Did he dyno it or not?

Alright an update, and some good news AT LAST.
Car frogger runs as it should, just got it tuned today.
Now at 14psi and very close to maxing the fuel pump.
1st and 2nd gears are great fun, can burnout on the fly.
Had a hairy moment when boost spiked to 18psi and found myself skipping across 3 lanes.

Car friggen hammers, and I still want to run more boost. More on that later.

Finally satisfied with the car. Boost comes in strong at 3600rpm and holds to the redline.

*excuse the enthusiasm, gonna have a drive tonight*

Hit 4000rpm in 1st or 2nd and it just lights the tyres, ill reduce tyre pressure to help it.
Have one slight problem still, before it wasn't making enough boost.
Now its making too much, has about 2-3psi of boost creep which is worrying me a little bit.

Also, ill go up the hill when ever there is a group.
You just get your car on the road.

EDIT:
Also, dyno tomorrow and drags this weekend. Gonna be a great week.

What sort of boost control are you running? Maybe switch to a manual tap if your running electronic they seem to be pretty reliable

Im just using a ball and spring boost tap.
Its very fidgety because the slightest turn is like 1 psi more or less.
Its not like the turbosmart one where you can just count how many clicks.

Alright car made 133kw ATW on 11psi of boost @ 5900rpm
The guys at TMS had to cut the dyno run short because the car started pinging up top.
Not a good sign, needs the timing sorted out.
Power was still climbing even at 6000rpm, so probably another 5kw atw given the chance to rev it out.



Car is definitely making the right numbers, very pleased with the result and at reasonably low boost.
Now i just to sort out this pinging issue.

Nah no video.
I reduced the boost from 14psi to 11psi last night just to be on the safe side.
I think i should invest in air temp sensor, so i can let the ecu auto adjust itself.

i wouldn't say it was quicker than boss xr8s... at least not in a roll on race. We got trumped by more than one commodore that night.

but that might be my fault, weighing the car down Very Happy

practice, you will get half decent 50 footers eventually, but need some good tires first.
