      We just got it running, and we are waiting until after Watefest to look at cranking the boost up. I will probably take it to the 15-17psi range. The motor has 104K on it, so I am not too eager to hurt it just yet.
      The 4-3-4 air intake is do to the fact that I will be going Standalone in the next year or so, and running a Cold Air Intake 3" down into the bumper. 4" inch straight from the Turbo is a really tight fit as it is.
      Thanks for the kind words though!

      How are you re-routing the BOV discharge back into the intake? I didn't know the Tial BOV had that capability.

      It doesn't have the capability to re-route like other bovs.

      Nice looking setup! I like that A/W intercooler. What are your IAT's like?

      Constructive criticisem: Ditch that hard 90 elbow thats on the compressor. Get a mandrel bent pipe and a straight silicone coupler. That hard 90 makes you dump 1psi and makes your compressor less efficient. (hotter boost charge to reach the same level of boost to compensate for the elbow.)

      Your crankcase breather is going to melt if you leave it there.

      I ran it twice on Sunday, and the best time was....13.59 @ 104.8 mph. The mph is good for 12's but since it was my first time ever racing the car, and first time ever drag racing a FWD Car, I guess it's okay. It was ranging between 8-10psi the whole run. 60' times were 2.25 on both runs with Drag Radials. It's going to take practice....Launch is everything.
      I'll keep everyone posted as time goes on. I may utilize a 2-stage boost controller to kick into high boost in 3rd gear to compensate for crappy launches, and make it up on the top end a little.
      The car was in the Schimmel Performance Tent for a while on Sunday between runs.

      Nice. Get that launch down to a 2.0 60ft or better, and nail you shifts, and you'll hit 12's easily, especially down at sea level.

      with only 8-10 psi I wouldn't worry about using a two stage boost controller. However if you have a two step or another form of launch controll that would help out big time.
      With FWD & turbo its all about the launch, as you mentioned. Just keep practicing and you'll get the hang of it.
