Kev, as for my gut, after the new turbo (S400SX 67mm billet) you may or may not need to push the "+" button once in awhile for the upper range

but, over on this coast, we doubled the core size on the AWIC, >double the pump ability, changed the intake manifold, increased the turbo (82lb/min before now 94lb/min), and gonna finally get the Lugnuts-tuned dog-box in the car. we ARE SHOOTING for some real numbers finally, if i can drive this thing worth a sh!t. the driver is the weak link, here.

sweet!! is it april yet??
Almost here.. start moving .. u know u love to be last minute with everything

Hey will switch cars four times before then ......lol

13. Finish the winch install on the RZR then lock the door on the garage and not go back until april at which point ill fire things up and have 8 months of motorsports fun nearly every weekend for nothing more then the cost of oil changes, the occasional flat tire and gas money to get to where i want to go... I could get used to this

14. sold most of my stuff parting out and getting a m3 stockkkk

15. nothing

16. finally going to fit the nitrous kit to the n/a motor, staging brake as the e-brake is useless, find some new drag wheels, thats about it for the golf

17. drinkn beers beers beers

LOL... shake your ass then and find us a garage..

20. sold the supercharger setup, its now on a friends 24v mk2. that should be interesting if its ever finished.

doing the turbo thing for 2012. need to do small stuff, valve guide seals, swap the vr control arms and all that out for 2.0 stuff/vr hubs to run the 5x100 bogarts i have. buy a turbo, undecided still. the 6266 looks good though. then let the ivans tune it, hopefully run 11's, and call it a day.

21. Adam and I haven't made a decent pass in our car since '09. We made so much HP that it overwhelmed our budget. Since then, we've had a couple half-ast seasons, lost our local track and have been messing around with an automatic tranny in hopes that it will put the power to the ground without having to rebuild every week or so.

In fact we were making the final test on the auto the weekend before the 'Classic last September when the box let go. We pushed it on the trailer and haven't touched it since. Without a local 1/4 mile track, our testing effort reached a new low. My file of data is two pages.....for three seasons.

Now that we have Gateway Motorsports Park back (fifteen minutes from my house), we have a renewed enthusiasm and plan to dig into it again after the holidays. IFO is coming to STL and the regular weekly program is coming back as well.

We're gonna settle for running in the 10's for now so all we need to do is update the cage, get belts, new helmet and finish our auto project.

I'm not going to commit to any out of town race until we're actually in the van and driving down the road to it. I've dumped on Mark Morris twice now because of our half-hearted effort. If we show up at the gate, then we're coming.

A quick note of thanks to those of you who stick with it and post results here. You guys keep that little smattering of interest that remains going just one more pass.

Good luck for 2012, everyone!

did you guys ever get the 300m shaft you were talking about? i remember they were trying to get a group to buy them then everything just seemed to dissapear about that....

23. Yeah we got the 300M shaft last year and it seems to be a bad mamma-jamma. I'm eager to see what "let go" last Septmenber. We'll know in a couple of weeks.

I'm convinced this auto is going to be the way to go for big-hp cars.

24. i went to the dark side fellas.

im going to try and come to a few of the events this year just to hang out and shoot the **** as always. and maybe if i can run test and tune in the new car i'll make a few passes.

im assembling a 92 toyota cressida with an LQ4 (6.0L LS1 based truck motor) and a T56 6SPD

should be alot of fun. will easily make 400whp on the mustang dyno with just a cam....

whats everyone else building? who's moving forward with what? im out of the loop hardcore
