I wish I had a team of munchkins.... I was slaving all day today on the build-up. but the new coolant lines are awesome and the new layout of all the piping is sooo much cleaner than the old setup. All of the items I was not 100% happy with on the initial turbo setup are no longer!!!!!!!!!!Nostrodomas said:I am always amazed with the work you put in your car Wes. So do you actually do all of the work, or do you have a team of specialized munchkins hidden in your garage? If so can I use them for a while?
P.S. I love your car...
Thanks for the kind words guys. I think you proposed me giving you the potato when I got bored with it before... HAHA I still need to drive it. I have been sick so I have not felt up to doing the plugs and timing, not to mention the weather has been crappy here as well.wickedsr20 said:Your car just gets better and better each time I see it. All your hard work is paying off and it shows in the end result. You have a real clean set-up. I just wish I had the time to get mine where it needs to be.
Get a T3 set-up and give me the potato.
Sounds like someone is going to need a FEW sets of tires.wes said:Thanks guys, car is pretty insane thus far. I didn't realize that the WG on the potato is set to 16 PSI right out of the box so the first drive was interesting. One thing for sure is that the potato is VERY responsive. Even in 2nd gear at about 1500 RPM's when you hit the gas instant wheelspin at 16 PSI.
Needless to say I did not boost it but once or twice given the boost pressure, I am going to adjust the Wastegate and see how low I can get it set.
I doubt it's that high... but getting there.. I've actually hit up to 20psi on mine several times... just never dyno tested it above 14 psi... that's the point where the 240 maf begins getting squirley, Plus the testing at JWT was on the conservative side... which is good for keeping it safe and of course suited the goals at the timeJames said:Holy cow, 16psi! That's like what 275-280whp??? NICE WORK!!! :thumbup:
