      the mk3 rejected that 5th cylinder

      man im moving to canada lol!
      a dream of mine is an AWD mk3 400ish HP
      youve paved the way and made life easier. everyonce in a while i get the crazy mood and start cutting welding shiz that dont go there just like this. this tops the cake. saving several pics for future reference of rear subframe etc if you dont mind...

      $$ is the only issue. to be able to think i need and just go buy, not wait to pool it up .. but im very happy for you man.

      shiz looks so much fun to drive. i would just sit there and be power sliding in and out of corners all day, tank of fuel after another lol

      !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! AWESOME

      p.s..e
      you can really see the even power curve now with the new wastegate vs before. on the last or first graphs.
      i had figured it was boost creep but you got around to it.

      you dont think a 50mm would've been suff.. or just got a 60mm cus its better suited..

      I was just wondering at the 10.17 @ 146MPH run.... how much power at the wheels was the car making and was it on a stock 02m gears ratio? thank you

      that day i did about 10 runs all between 146 and 147mph

      a little math can show a pretty close aproximation of the power needed to the ground to attain 146.5mph according to the cars total weight with driver.

      wheel hp= (mph/234)^3 x total weight of the car

      so (146.5mph/234) exponent 3 x 2850lbs = 699.4 whp

      so to answer your questions about 700whp and yes stock 02M gears

      ok, that helps me to understand the 10.1 @ 146MPH, I see, with the 700WHP it will get you there, when I saw your last Dyno numbers posted showing 599 awhp and 500 awtq @25psi then you posted back that you ran the 10.1 @ 146MPH, I was like what I'm surprised your stock gears 02M tranny is holding around 600WTQ love your build, beautiful work

      when i did my first run that day i ran 145.6mph i reacted just like you ! You see a few weeks before, just after the dyno i ran 139.8mph wich was confirming the 599whp. than i made minor changes to the car and went back to the strip and ran in 146mph at the same 25psi i was running before.

      you see... Now you got me confused

      was the 10.1 @146MPH with 599AWHP @ 25psi of boost? or 700WHP at the same 25PSI of boost?

      I sent you a PM

      Subscribed! Amazing build. Do you happen to still have a p/n for the wiseco's? Did the broken crank get replaced with another cast crank? Did the comp ratio stay at 9.5:1?

      Wow this car is nuts. In a good way. I would love to see how it handless the turns. Did you prepare your suspension set-up for straight line drag racing or did you leave some space for cornering?

      At that power level I'd consider install of crank torsion damper like ATI or Fluidampr ones. Otherwise thes same crank damage could happen again.
