      This is a great car for that price. I admit to searching for this exact car at least a couple times on Craigslist and Ebay. :D

      I have my doubts a 288 will fit into either a ABA or AEG head without clearance. I have a 272 in an ABA head, it's...

      Basic run down, one night boost went from 16psi, to 10psi, by the time I got home it was 6psi. :(
      Found a pile of Apex strip pieces in the intercooler. The photo's explain what happened next.

      Speaking of big turbos. A local guy is running a PTE 6262 on a 2.0 DOHC. He was over getting some jets from me on the weekend, and told me the car currently runs 30psi of boost. And that it won't...

      Think about that for a second. Another to way to say the drive train components are accelerating faster is "the whole car is accelerating faster"

      I've never believed drivetrain loss to be a percentage, not ever.

      It's far more likely that on any car the drivetrain loss is a more fixed number. Obviously it would be a range, since lots of...
