no real updates as such as I am still working on the tune with the builder.. we have had issues as far as getting boost to spool quick enough and arent entirely sure why.. weve tested multiple things, finally it seems like it is boosting better so he said it was time to *** or get off the pot and see what itll handle... we also are doing comp tests after every log now as early on in the tunes due to *** poor harness that came with the original purchase of motor, and my stupidity and not confirming coils etc, we had some misfiring and may have done some minor damage but overall engine is strong...

we are wanting to see 20psi possibly up to 23psi... currently my 3rd gear pulls take me from 40mph-75mph in 2.75 seconds so it moves along ok haha


small video of early runs 1-3 on about 8psi - looks slow but is deceivingly quick.... Ill try to get some more vids soon

20 PSI is going to be pretty intense :shock:. 500RWHP? Can't remember if the power goal was mentioned haha.

I know what you mean about video's looking slow! I'm having the same thing going on -haha- . I am getting an issue with the link though and can't watch it at all? :?

Got some work done on the girl last night..

After riding in a friends rx7 I decided my view was a little crowded.. and I liked the stock cluster.. so I combined the 2 setups..

A mate gave me a spare cluster to experiment with.. is t perfect but I like the way it turned out.. the view is a little less cluttered even though it has the same amount of gauges etc

I also swapped the gear from the fd speed sender onto an fb one with a small amount of modification to the shaft, and cables.. I now have a working speedometer but am yet to see how accurate it is
