Been planning it for quite some time and finally bit the bullet and went turbo! Twisted Evil Here is a pic of the project as it is almost done and ready for tuning. Will most likely take first passes down the drag strip, here in Spokane on the 24th of this month.

Here is a link to a YouTube video of a dyno session a week ago. It made 463 hp and about 360 ft/lbs of torque with 20 lbs of boost...

Here is a link to a YouTube video of my first (and only so far) run down the quarter mile with the turbo. The clutch is slipping very badly (Almost the entire run!) but it still manages a 10.35 @ 128mph. Once I upgrade the clutch and make some safety additions too, it should be a beast! Twisted Evil

Really getting serious! On the dyno pull what was max RPM? You going to a multi disc clutch or just a heavier pressure plate?

On the dyno, only 7,300rpms. The things is such a beast, it sounds like more! All of the parts should handle 9,000rpms, but I shouldn't have to rev it that high though.

Once I crank the boost up, I am thinking it will make around 600hp to the rear tires.

It should be able to hold with just going to a black magic clutch with my current pressure plate as the four puck was pretty worn. Just thought I could get it to hold for this one last race, but was wrong! However, I may go with a twin disc Rev6 clutch from Ron Lummus. Twisted Evil

I am hoping to run high 9's with the boost turned down and then into the 8's when I step it up!
