    well, another dyno session done but something wierd was happening. By the time the dyno said 6100 rpm, the car was at 7k rpm. Not sure what was happening, didnt really feel like clutch slip and the logs didnt really look like the clutch slipped.

    the dyno said 392/420. However, I backtracked the torque at 6100 and recalculated that torque at 7k which makes it about 430whp. Keep in mind my heartbreaker dyno is around 15% lower than a dynojet, putting her at a touch under 500whp on a dynojet. Honestly, the car is scary fast, i dont really care about hp numbers but thats what people love to ask when they see the car.

    its at about 18 psi, 9 degrees of timing, and using about 83% DC from the 60lb injectors. Charge air temps are still out of control.

    The last few weeks have been absolute insanity. I was in a CJ pony parts install video in my shop and Jonathan Nerren, a pro drifter came by and we did an exhaust install on his mustang. Then he drifted CJPP SEMA car and his car in the parking lot of the shop.

    Thats his street car. Of course his competition car has all the bells and whistles (rear mounted rad, removable panels, big power).

    then we had a booth at streetcar takeover Charlotte. Nice having her in a booth at a huge show. Wish i got to do some drag racing or roll racing but i didnt quite feel comfortable with the car yet. E36H8ter from the bimmerforums rocked out in the roll racing

    here i am cleaning my engine bay

    took all the sound deadening out of the trunk. Weighed it

    Puts the car at under 2600lbs

    Installed the mele design firm rally battery mount with the chase bays ground cable

    Installed the garagistic (spelling? Idk i can never spell it right) secondary diff mount. No pics cuz we were in a rush. it does work though. found out my inner cv bolts were all loose as hell.

    Last sunday, I turned 27. The lady and I drove the backroads up to Asheville,NC and stopped at the Sierra Nevada Brewing Factory. Highly suggest going there if you have the chance. I am not a big beer drinker but they did have some good food, good beer, and a good place to hang out.

      Yea that does sound scary fast. Almost 500hp and only 2600lbs? Woof! Sucks you can only use like 1/4th of that in most driving conditions.

      Great work man. Super cool stuff here.

          Damn, this car is amazing. Incredible work. I just started my own turbo build and I really wish I had access to the fab shop you do.

          What front lip is that? I may have skimmed a few pages...

            i hate using cheap crap like this but it does look decent and being plastic its pretty durable. I have a bad history of destroying the expensive ones.

                      I got super impulsive one morning and scored a set of 1552 Formula TR's for like 500 shipped new. 16x9 et 30 and a set of indy firehawk 500's in 225/50/16. Test fit didnt go so well. Rear's are like a c-hair from the trailing arm and the front's touch both the strut and the brakes with 12mm (or 13mm?) spacers. They look pretty good. I was hoping to have these as a set of "beater" tires because i ran through like half my r888's in those burnout videos. I am starting to regret not just buying new tires for my racing dynamics to save money.

                      yea i know my drivers fender is F'ed. Left for work one day and forgot something, pulled back into the driveway and ran over my fender and folded it in. There is only a single layer of metal there and its gotten so thin that i cannot get it straight.

                      rears

                      Pretty excited to 1, not rub anymore, and 2, be able to rotate the tires when the rears go. I was also considering when I eventually track the car, it will be good to be forced into classes way beyond my driving skill so that I don't embarass myself.

                      Ordering new pads and rotors for the back pretty soon too. Settled on hawk HPS for now to stay within budget.

                        Honestly 16x9 ET30 sounds beautiful. 245's are so tight in the rear with ET15 that I have my GE coils maxed out in the rear so I don't rub a ton... Much easier to space the wheel out from ET30 than to try to bring a wheel in further, but probably need a 20mm spacer up front.

                          I totally understand where your coming from. However, Bosch suggests that you run the o2 sensor in the hottest place it can take. The sensor im using can handle bursts of 1030 C.

                          While I have heard in the past that 6-18" is what is suggested, alot of the OEM's are moving the wideband closer and closer to the turbine housings. On alot of the downpipes I work with at work, we have had no issues running them less than 6" from the housing.

                          On the other hand, the farther you have it out, the longer it takes to warm up and the longer the delay is between the exhaust leaving the cylinder and hitting the o2 sensor. This is usually negligible while in boost, but the less mass airflow you have the longer it takes to hit the o2 sensor (generally). Some of the new ecu's I work with compensate for this but my ecu doesn't.

                          I wish I was a badass mofo who would put backpressure and EGT sensors in each runner and in the collector and wastegate tube.
                          I know I'm digging a bit here, but what O2 sensor are you running that can handle 1030 C? I'm on my 3rd Bosch LSU 4.9 sensor in about 2 weeks of my car barely even running. The longest lasting one lasted for about 2 hours of street tuning then died on startup 2 days later. I have my bung in a similar location about 6" back from the turbo.

                          At this point my only other idea is a homemade copper heatsink plate. I'd love your input because I think this is the last sensor AEM is going to send me...

                          Edit: I realize now that we're running the same sensor. Well now I'm stumped.
