Just thought everyone might like to know that since finishing her I've got about 1400 miles on it. I'm driving it, and have it tuned pretty good now. Turbo loves 3rd gear.
Yes, sir, awesome is correct!

Roger Crawford initially. On his dyno 160 hp @ 5100 rpm, and 186ft/lbs @4000rpm. That was at 8lbs boost on pump gas.
Since having it in the car, I've gotten it to run at 15 lbs boost on pump gas. (91). BIG difference. I have the dist locked, and am running a Hyfire VI box (which pulls timing out based on boost), so I'm playing the game of more initial while pulling out more per lb under boost. Interesting and it takes awhile. I've already cracked a cylinder (detonation), so I know where it CAN'T run. Lol. Fixed it, and I'm sneaking back up on it. I want it totally streetable though, and not on the ragged edge. I'm getting more than 200 ft/lbs right now. At 2500 rpm, I'm boosting already. I shift at 3000 rpm, and turn the tires pretty good.

I wanna go for a ride next time I'm out Jim. Especially if I say goodbye to my Bordeaux split, I'll need a fix. A fast fix..... Laughing
