      Got my car running considerably better. 19xx lbs @ 12 lbs of boost on street tires is ! Can't wait to crank it up to 20. Who's getting excited? Weather is getting nicer and nicer soon time to terrorize the 1/4 mile.

      just going to start with the 1.25 housing....

      but i needed to clean it up a lil, for some reason these BW turbos are kinda rough in the hotside inlet. lay on gasket, scribe some marks, and get to grinding.

      Left to Right 1.25 --> 1.10 --> 1.00



      Billet is cool and shiny and stuff



      i already ported this housing long ago.



      fair bit of material to get out of there





      almost done



      VIOLA!!!!! should flow much better now....

      spent most of the time tonight re-routing the dump tubes and redoing the SS hardlines for the wastegates. also re-plumbed the WG solenoid as per the tuners direction.

      the list gets shorter and shorter. plan is to do the charge piping on Saturday. making a new VC, catch can, and oil retention pan as well as i dont want to try and put on the engine diaper i got.

      i guess i am all alone here..... anyhow.

      redid the entire A2W piping today, with nubvr on the welder and me on the fitting/grinding.

      Justin @ Linder Power Systems flowed me some couplers, so we redid the piping to incorporate these fittings.

      and it looks good i think. spent the whole day doing it all, and it turned out good.

      so, Justin (nubvr) came down to Speeding-G60 Race Team HQ today and we spent the whole day redoing the entire boost piping, utilizing Linder Power Systems custom couplers.

      we welded onto the turbo compressor outlet, the A2W intercooler inlet and outlet, even cut off and welded on to the throttle body.

      it was a longish day of fabrication and welding, and it looks kick ass. i had a MESS of little horseshoe shaped niblets of aluminum pipe laying around when i was done from the constant nibbles and cuts, etc.

      THANKS JUSTIN!!!!!

      had a fat 3 lb Rib-Eye lunch and beers along the way. when welder comes to you, then feed him you must!

      Sadly I havent touched my car sense Pacific Waterland last year. I've been too busy preparing for my latest addition...

      Hint, heres what I spent all afternoon building:



      a future drag racer is on her way!


      In car related stuff, I've been collecting all the stuff to do an 02a swap. got a 4.24 r&p, going with a kaaz diff. finally found springs to run my crazy CAT cams 299/298's, but probably wont have time to get the new head all built before next year.

      Also i aquired a large amount of high density foam used for sculpting... so, I may decide to build some wide fenders, or something...


      Hopefully after I get this Rally car in my garage finished in the next few weeks, I'll be able to get my race car back in the garage and getting it race ready for this summer.

      I'm glad your boy found a nicer way to tag things.

      Badass ****. Looks like you could go rock crawling with that catch pan.
