      Might need some ground effect mods and a huge ass rear spoiler.

      The aerodynamics aren't matched to the power. Might need a taller 5th/6th. I'm up for it though.



      UPDATE:

      It looks like the fueling issue has been resolved. Some road logging was just done and sent to Jeff at UM to see if it looks good. Dyno is scheduled for tomorrow morning. If it checks out, I've got one day to put some miles on driving around the city to make sure everything holds tight (lines, clamps, electrical etc). Will be leaving for WiTW Thursday AM if all works out. So close now, was very worried I wasn't going to make it. But it's 80% now, perhaps 98% if the dyno work goes well.

      When you have so many mechanical mods and doing work right up to day before a 20 hour road trip, there's lots to go wrong.

      Mine makes power but is otheriwise plain jane. There will be plenty of R's worth seeing. The R36 monster wookie is what I want to see. And all of the other FI monsters gathered in one place with their grandpa of power, Jeff Atwood.

      Thank you sir.

      My odds of departure for WiTW just went up. Jeff says the logging done on-road looks excellent. Dyno is 10am tomorrow. Literally, this is where the rubber meets the road. Wish me luck.

      considering I live 10 minutes from where the R36 was built and JCs mk5 r32t was worked on .. those are the two other cars id be interested in taking a look at but ive already seen the ins and outs of them .. seeing/hearing 50 r32s all together will be a sight of its own

      when is dyno time for this beast?

      Dyno went okay. Still at about 650 for hp and 550 for torque. Fueling is working well, and Jeff (UM) says the logs look great. Problem now is that the injectors are at 100%. They're only 910cc injectors. Will be going to WiTW though, since it's running great! Will install 1200cc injectors when I get back and finish the tuning then.

      See you all there.

      Sure can. Sounds like you've found the incentive to keep going on your build.

      Likewise. I couldn't find people and I wanted to get you our for a drive. Hopefully we can make that happen next time. Or another event later this year. I'm doing H2O. It was great to finally meet people and drive The Dragon, but the awards were a nice bonus.

      Was great to meet you. The pics look great and I really appreciate them. Your car is amazing, thanks for convincing me to come out with you. It's hard to be out of control and sitting shotgun, but I was getting okay with it by the end of the run. You got my adrenaline pumping and it felt good.

      Great to meet you as well. Sorry for you car woes, but glad to made it down. I saw you on The Dragon on Sunday night. We were up and down there a couple times. Awesome fun. I came looking for you twice that night but there was only a silver MkIV. Was hoping to take you out. Anyways, good luck getting the car fixed.

      A video taken during WiTW 2012 while driving back on the North Carolina side along the river. Not as twisty as The Dragon, but a fun drive at a safe mild pace. At 7:14 is a small amount of boost. I need to shoot some video at 28lbs. This is just part throttle.
