    The 16g Drag Race Discussion Thread

    I think I've missed some updates here. Sometime over the winter I reset the no nitrous record to 9.92 at 126. It has gone 137 I think for a best MPH, I don't remember why I lifted there. 60 foot was a 1.33, which blows my mind a bit (this was still no prep in the winter).I then put a new...

    Ozark Raceway has a new owner (Kevin Jewer!)

    Thanks guys. I'm slowly finding out there are a handful of DSMers in this area, thankfully. :)

    RWD Talon runs 9s on its first full pass.

    Thanks guys! That was a fun side project for many years. I've always said that when I put the 16g on the car for shits and grins back in 2011, and got it down to 10.31, that was what made the car fast. I was stuck for years at 8.80-8.90, and after that, marched right on down to 7.90. Being...

    RWD Talon runs 9s on its first full pass.

    Got the 9 second pass today, 9.92 at 126 (had to lift), 1.33 60 foot. So glad that's done. I still plan to see what it does with nitrous too.

    RWD Talon runs 9s on its first full pass.

    I typically do 90 ft lbs every time. I just bumped them up to 100. Sometimes it's a bi*** to get the double o-rings settled into the thick copper gasket I run and it will take several retorques. Everything looked good in this case, I think it may have just been a touch overfilled on the water...

    RWD Talon runs 9s on its first full pass.

    I hope so. About all I can do now is lighter driver and an inlet scoop to force feed the turbo a bit. Going to go retorque the head, check the plugs, and try again tomorrow.

    Was just coming here to add that. This was on the Holley ECU. Same exact ET it ran on ECMlink, for what it's worth. 10.12 on the dragy, so likely another mid 10.0x (previously ran 10.04). HP was measured at 480 on that pass. No prep, water burnout. So close!

    Lol! I love this ECU.

    RWD Talon runs 9s on its first full pass.

    I did end up running it again at our track rental on Sunday. Same 42 psi boost. It really wants to knock the tire off on the gear change, I had to pull a good but of power out of it in that area, but it ran a pretty good number on low boost. All the data looks good. I'm pretty happy with it...

    Compound Turbo Thread

    I've got mine running again on the compound turbos. Starting out on WG spring it's making 42 pis boost, 50 psi back pressure, and ran a 5.48 at 128 on a 1.23 60 foot, which all sounds good to me. I'm going to turn the boost up to 48 psi or so and run some low 5s for a while.

    Either should work. THe HX40 might have a little less total back pressure, but the 68hta is a good match too particularly on the compressor side.

    RWD Talon runs 9s on its first full pass.

    Yeah, that probably should have happened 15 years ago. :DHere's another vid from a few days prior to the one linked above. This was with the WGs rigged up to allow boost to come down to 20-22 psi (normal minimum is 40-42 on the compound setup). These were the first clean pulls on the Holley...

    My advice is to run the biggest hotside you can get on the atmospheric turbo. A smaller one will spool quicker, especially with a smaller HP compressor like that 68HTA, but back pressure goes up. If you do decide to try a T4 housing, go with the biggest one you can find.

    Whether or not it's worth the arseache is entirely up to you, but that combo seems doable.

    The 16g Drag Race Discussion Thread

    Lol, sounds like we're in the same boat. I opened this one up some time ago and it looked really good, aside from the thrust plates, so I'm hoping it's not all bad news. I asked waterman if I could get the thrust plates but their guy said they're sized/clearanced to the pump gears so it has to...
