Biff, what time are you running in the 1/4 mile with that turbo?

You have an engine swap?

No swap. Screw swaps.

At 8psi when I drag I run mid 14s. I can't launch for shit though. I gotta improve on that a bit.

I'm gonna build the internals soon though and jack up the boost.

Must be hard as hell to get that thing to lock up.

Launches are tough to get down pat, my lude spins and has wheel hop like crazy if you stand off it right off the line, kinda gotta find the sweet spot in the rpm range to get her to lock up, yet shoot out of the gate at a decent speed.

Ya, I tend to clutch dump WAY too high, and I'll have wheelhop regardless of how hard or soft the Koni's are set at. I still gotta find the sweetspot rpm for it.

Without the turbo, 4000 was ideal. It doesn't work so well now with the turbo. I gotta play around with it.

I find I get my best runs the slow and steady approach. I usually take off around 2500 rpms, slower than I'd like but I lock up right away and then I wind her out and show em my tail lights.

you're only running low 14's? I'm surprised.

Well, I'm sure my times would be MUCH better than they are if I could launch right without sitting there for half a second wheelhopping and spinning. My Yokos when heated up grab like a mother fucker, but I still dump it too high, and get hop. I dump too low, and I bog. The sweetspot still eludes me.

LOWER IT! It's still a 4x4! Looks nice otherwise. I've been wanting to paint my moudlings and skirts silver as well, but I always put that shit off for go-fast goodies.

I'm still winter driving it so I don't want to lower it just yet...espically with the roads in NB, but someday. I would really like to get my skirts done too, but I figure if I get a kit eventually then I'm wasting my money.
