      By the way, anyone want to try out a torquey intake manifold? 26" long aeb sized intake runners, with .25 liter plenum and stock sized throttle flange?

      Sorry, I should have been more clear.

      The goal of the splitter is to create a low pressure area under the car. It restricts air being reflected around the bumper from rolling underneath the car...

      That's a low pressure zone. You should pull your ducts from above the splitter. Added benefit for adding winglets to the sides of the splitter to funnel the air in to the "bumper" area

      That's a huge pre-turbo nozzle. At that point, you might as well install a fuel injector there and spray e85.

      That's an easy solution. The nipples will probably be welded on anyway. So turn the flange side of the nipples tube in a lathe to match the I'd of the untapped boss. Direct fit: weld them in. ...

      The part with the tape is part of the ecu harness. It's fine.

      Zip ties to measure travel are a neat idea. I'm only starting to learn about setting up drag car suspensions.

      So I'm curious, any reason why you went with a 8.5 cage on a tube chassis instead of just jumping straight to 25.x? And any plans to try and correct "rear end" geometry to prevent squatting on...

      Density is mass/volume while pressure is force/area. You can convert pressure to density by factoring in temperature and volume. Comparing density directly to pressure is like comparing torque...

      That's correct. Higher compressor rpm to compensate for changes in absolute pressure. Why the ECU is set up that way, I do not know. I would expect that to be completely covered under absolute...

      That doesn't fly anymore. Ecus aren't that dumb. The ECU can only adapt idlle mixture so much, which well cause the car to pig out at idle and then will try and lock in 14:1 AFR cruise. Even with...

      In your experiment, 100 psi is gauge pressure, not absolute pressure. Absolute pressure is gauge_pressure + boost_pressure.
