I had issues with my engine so I had to tear it down and rebuild it. Almost done. Should fire it up tomorrow. Woohoo!

Gave it a proper flogging and put in an 80 mile drive. the new intercooler and ignition made a huge difference! power is nice and smooth, intake air temps are down from over 200°F to 125°F. I accidentally bounced if off the 6250 rpm rev limit. 1st gear goes by fast.

yes, the charge cooler is from siliconeintakes.com which is the same as frozen boost. I have bought a lot of stuff from them and have been very happy. decent products at a very good price.

Doing some testing trying to set the boost pressure.
Went from 12 PSI to a broken 30# gauge with one turn of the knob.
Don't know if we had a bad gauge or broke it by pegging it..... :shock:
Got a new one to install today, 1st race tomorrow night.

Low gear test hit.

How's it going here? I sent my ignition off to Malory for repairs. I ordered 2 weber rebuild kits. I guess its been long enough to rebuild the carb's
