No dyno before trans broke (3rd gear), went 12.9@115 on 17psi couldn't boost until 3rd gear without spinning and going nowhere (195 tires and .48 hotside).
Idles sometimes, currently has no o2 sensor. Wideband gauge between 12.7 and 11.5 under boost.
Looking to go standalone, 35R or 3076, cams in the future.
