    I like your persistence. Reminds me of me.

    This is what my engine looked like a few hours after a dyno oops and three work days before heading to a Louisville meet a few years ago.. Got her done!

    Hit up a car show with a few other panther comrades. Two of us took a trophy for being top 50 nice or bestest or whatever in the show.

    Gonna be switching over to e85 this week, then hopefully the track. Try and get into the 10s. I think i can pretty easily.

    Added e85, need to do some testing to see if my pump is enough to support it at peak. So far seems to be alright. But Warlboro has a new bigger pump, might just switch to it regardless. and tune as needed with that pump, if have to hold the tune back a little if its not 100% up to it. I dont want to run two pumps.

    I need to buy a real camera and learn how to take real pics, not just phone pics.

    First clip was very early on this year. I hadnt got the trans setup yet and you can hear from the quick 1-2 shift.
    Second clip, I believe is when I hurt the motor. I noticed at the tail end my timing was way to high. and right after I could smell oil. Blew the knock sensor seals and the frt crank seal. The crank seal didn't 100% blow out. The balancer kept it in just enough it couldn't completely blow out and dump oil everywhere.
    Third was the other night, took a buddies FIL for a ride. New 295/40 toyos hook way better then the oem size coopers I had on last year. OEM size coopers never stood a chance when the boost came in.

    Hoping to get to the track this week either Wednesday or Friday evening for test and tune.

    Well visited the track last week. Wasn't as great of a performance as i had hoped for. Seems i cannot hold the car as well now to launch as i was last year. Anybody who upgraded to the mustang rotors and corvette calipers notice a difference? I'm pushing through the brakes before i can build boost to launch. Last year i could build 2-3psi and launch. Braking feels good coming to a stop and i have good firm pedal. I wonder if going to larger front calipers but not increasing master cylinder size is the cause.

    First run, i went to stage and ended up pushing through the beam when i wasnt expecting so my time was terrible.

    We turned up the boost, maxed out my controller with the 5psi wastegate spring. Looks like with that spring the controller maxes out at 17psi. What i didnt realize, is that when the controller maxes out and i hit that psi, it defaults to spring pressure. So i hit 17psi and the wastegate opened and didnt close till 5psi. So the car fell on its face during the pull. Which was fine, cause reading the logs its obvious i need more fuel pump at peak load as it was falling short.

    You can hear at 48 seconds.

    Didn't get another opportunity to run anyway. A guy blew his motor and oil misted 3/4 of the track.

    Hoping to get the two step launch control figured out with the holley and go back after i improving my fuel delivery.

    Added a logo light under light underneath that turns on with interior lights.

    Pulled the turbo to better inspect the wheel. Sure enough, piston chunks had to go somewhere lol not lol.

    Picked up another, cheap enough. Old one still works and builds good boost, might find its way onto another project.

    Installed a hitch on the car. Wanna build a small trailer to haul my drag radials etc to the track and swap them out while there. Local track is only a 30 minute drive.

    Installed the new "herllcat" fuel pump. Looking at the logs, didn't really make a difference. Might need to reroute inlet at the fuel pressure regulator and fuel rail. But looks like I'll be changing to dual 450's anyway. Allz the fuelz then.

    Would a trans brake help with your launches at the track?

    For sure, and actaully setting up a launch retard. Playing with launch retard is my first step.
