    Man I have been slack on the updates. I removed the front exit exhaust and built an "A-pipe" out of the stock H. The exhaust is quite now. The squeaks rattles and gear / bearing whine now fill your ears.

    Last week I put a new starter solenoid on it so far so good. Trailered the car to Galot last Thursday got 5 runs before the rain came it.

    First pass:forgot to hit the fog light switch that powers the Mac valve. 2-3 psi BOO!

    Second pass: Close to the target 6psi, it was over shooting with the front exit by about 2psi. Was hoping it would be faster.

    Third pas: Add a pound to the upper end of the target table boost by RPM, better.

    Fourth pass: I think I added another half, don't recall. Anyway it hit boost cut, what a party pooper.

    Last pass : only pass of the night I had a car in the other lane I think it was a late model KIA? I raised the boost cut and keep everything else the same.

    Had a good time. Need to figure out if I can have the boost controller turn back on after hitting cut. I have a curve to bring the boost in, I think it's pretty soft. I would like to hit it a little harder in the mid range, but I don't know if that's a good idea how much do you think it will take a 4000 RPM? Thinking that is around peak torque I keep it lower but that about where the motor bogs to so a little more there might pick up some ET.

    The A/C is not working I think it's electrical. The pressure sensor is closed but the compressor is not engaging.

    There is a bracket Race coming up I hope make. If I can cut a light and row the gears I think I have a chance at not being a first round duck. It ran a 8.08 (last) and 8.06 (third)

    Your car so far is quicker and faster than mine. The 60' is all in the weight of the flywheel and the 3.35x4.11 starting line ratio. I have never had a hotrod auto. I assume they are made by the converter.

    It's been 7.60's @ 95+ on 8.5psi with 1.9x 60 foots. Remember we are running an AOD now. I figure we will get there, just have not had an opportunity to play with the 2 step at the track.

    Thanks! Why can't you? Hit it harder! There is nothing special about my car. My neighbor blew the head gasket on his on the Dyno the other week. I don't want to have to take the engine apart or out this year. And I think my clutch is already slipping. If I do turn it up (any time soon) it will just be hair right at the top.

    Consistently sleeping at the tree! Need to practice more. That's no way to win bracket races.

    We put the mustang on the Dyno today. Ran great went smoothly. After being in jack stand jail for 10ish months I didn't want to shoot for the moon. Mostly just shake downs and see how it goes.

    Ended up around 8# boost over 330rwhp. It did better than I expected. I think the turbo has more in it but I want to enjoy it for a while before I turn it up.

    Boost is great!

    Looking forward to taking it to the track!

    Yesterday I took the Mustang to get some week killer and an oil filter for the lawnmower. I had boost cut spark set on 5psi. Even with the boost controller off it came on a couple times.
    I decided to bump the boost cut up to 7 psi.

    I am still rolling into it but it seems like boost is pretty slow to come on (lag?) I am a little worried that my waste gate doesn't have good priority, I assumed it would not make that much on the spring in the gate.

    Pulled the log rising boost curve saw 6.5psi right before the lift. Need to get an input hooked up so I can work on setting up the the Holley boost controller. I am ready to put it on the rollers and/or the track. I would like to get it in the 300-325 rwhp range (212 NA) and enjoy it for a bit and learn how to tune it and slowly turn it up!

    Took it for a joy ride yesterday. The IAC needs work. It dies when coasting with the clutch in. It wasn't perfect before but it didn't die nearly as much.
    It made baby boost (saw 130kpa) and I could hear the turbo spooling! It pulls better than it did NA. For the first time out on the road it was great.
