Talking The bug bit me... Again

Looks like I am going to be dusting off the red sled off terror. Hows the membership feel about a new build thread?

Thank Sambo!

brnrdtns, springs, belts and rims with just the right amount of poke!

Etchhead, Fun maybe an understatement...

I will start a new pic heavy thread. I put the cases together 4 years ago and moved to a new location and it has been sitting in a box on a shelf since so no pics of that but the rest..

What lived and what died in the old engine? You were at around 1,400 at the wheels, correct?

Welcome back Timmy!

I just popped back in from well over a year away from this place because I needed some info that I have forgotten since not tuning and testing as much.

I still haven't tried pushing the new turbo wheels I designed for my car almost 3 or 4 years ago, Iv'e just been driving it at 650 hp and still have the boost dropping off fairly early. Maybe I will feel inspired to see what kind of RPM these things will still keep making power too. I know my budget sure is not what it was several years ago so do I really want to open up that can o worms!
