some of you, probably one or two people, will know who i am, but im back in atlanta after being out of state for 3 years... car was down for like 8 months in need of an overhaul, which it got.

redid most my wiring for the engine, installed new clutch, polished some stuff, repainted a few things here and there, replaced master cyl, slave cyl and clutch line. a few other little bits and pieces, but nothing crazy. cars running fabulously, and im looking forward to dyno time and tuning in the near future...

anyway, just cause i took some photos of it tonight, i will let yall take a look and see what you think. if i can find a complete mod list, ill post it, but otherwise, just ask if youve got any questions.

enjoy -

tuned with uberdata, switching to a crome system upon next tune. hopefuly ill get the car ready to dyno in teh next month or so, since i found somewhere im comfortable tuning it, and from there, well see what happens. im hoping to be making 275hp on stock internals. lucky the guy wholl be tuning it owns a 4 door acccord with twice as many miles making 280 on stock parts.

well, im tuned to boost to 9psi, although, right now, my gauge is reading that im not boosting over 6-7psi, but i dont trust it since the car has been wicked fast the last few test runs, so i think i may be boosting to 10-12 psi and my gauge isnt reading correct, so im going to get a replacement shortly, and then see... i know my boost controller is barely restricting the boost to the wastegate, so its possible that its just boosting to the 6psi that the wastegate is sprung to handle... idk yet, either way, if this is only 6psi, idk if i want to run it at 9psi!!

Ooo.. Becuase i was thinking 275 is a bit low but since you said your at 6-9psi thats makes sense.

yea... i definately could be making 300 plus on this setup, maybe with a little higher fuel pressure, and maybe slightly larger injectors, but the car is very very quick. i raced a 3 series last night and had them by 3-4 car lengths by 4000 in 3rd... so its doin me proud

yea, its been like 3 years now since i really began work on the setup. its run on and off that whole time, and now, i finally feel as if i can put a check mark next to the turbo setup, as all bugs have been pretty much taken care of, and the car finally runs the way it should.
