That'll make it look waaaaaay better.
Hey Jurd do you ever do any races in Nor Cal? I know you were in Medford once and I live there, so I'd like to see the car in person some day.
Autocross everyonce in a while with this new turbo autocross would suck dick so much turbo lag.
Ill be passing through on the 20th i would be down to stop in medford for some food if you want to meet up. Ill be heading back monday or sunday night as well if friday is no good.
Let me know.

Because of that lean stumble i havent been reving over 5k which im assuming is where this thing will start to come alive. I found the problem i just need a new AMM so after i get that fixed ill try turning up the boost and ill report back.
Right now im running 10-11psi it spools slow and the cars rich. I think an mbc might help it spool a tad faster and being able to rev it out to 6,500rpm might make it more fun.
My goal is to run 12-13 psi with good afrs and no pinging i think ill just leave it there for the sake of my 3rd gear.
The new intercooler has me impressed feeling the difference between the hotside pipe and coldside pipe has me wondering what my car will ping at now with the colder charge.
I believe ill stick with this turbo setup for quite some time, work on tuning the car better and getting a decent transmission/rearend then i can start pushing the limmits of the stock rods. If i find those limmits ill build a motor and do some head work/bigger valves etc work will be slow over the next year or so as im moving and most of my money will find its way into things with higher priority.
