    So after using the Ebrake last time out I decided to install a staging brake to try to get a little better 60ft time.
    I mounted it on the drivers side on the flat spot and plumbed it to hold the passenger front and drivers rear brake.
    I'll try to test it out July 1st on the next test and tune event

    So I did hit my goal of 11s with the fp 68hta but like everyone I want more.
    So I contacted archerfab to make me a manifold and picked up a brand new hx40 6 blade.
    I'm now hoping for low 11s with this turbo. I am currently running small cams which will hurt my top end but I'll see how it goes.
    I'm curious on how much faster I can go with just upgrading the turbo and manifold and leaving the engine the same.
    I do see a transfer case upgrade in my future

    should be able to go low 11s with ease. i went 10.80s my first time out on my dinosaur hx40 cast 60mm 8 blade on 26psi. granted i have an auto in mine but even still low 11s should be easy with a good tune.

    Just dynoed it and made 546 at 27psi but ran out of fuel so we couldn't turn it up anymore.

    I upgraded my fuel system slightly. I took out the 450 and put in the new wally 525 and ran ptfe -8 lines from the fuel rail back to the pump.
    I haven't tested it out on the dyno yet but with just the bigger pump I was able to turn up the boost without leaning out so I'm thinking the problem is fixed.
    Before I changed to -8 lines I took it to the track and didn't run as well as I expected but it has a lot of potential.
    At around 30 psi(lots more in it) I ran 11.7@125mph with a crappy 60 foot of 1.8, spinning in first.
    I was shifting at 7500 max which now that my fuel is upgraded I should be able to Rev out each gear a little more and push more boost.

    Added some carbon fiber fenders and a rear bumper carbon fiber piece to cover up the peeling paint.
    Also wired in NLTS that I'm excited about testing out. 93A509F3-F521-4AF1-AE07-1ECD4EDB11D8.jpeg ABC4E181-8262-46BA-A2EA-A27C53D40F56.jpeg F9C2D96F-0857-4A54-9DE9-9EEBA26EA361.jpeg 2D867255-7B4B-450B-9105-096E8A7368E9.jpeg 18FA0E58-ACE1-4057-945E-CCCCA1063BC5.jpeg F1C73265-61E8-420F-AB5F-FD7EE8EB85A5.jpeg
