    the numbers are little sad... but mostly because im restricted on the intake manifold and stock ignition

    it made 285 Dyno Dynamics @ 19lbs of boost... my 1st time at the track i went 12.4 @115 with a 1.9 60 foot... i have lots of room for improvement... i now know how to launch the car and i slept at the tree bad! haha... like i said the numbers are horrible LOL


    here is a video of my horrible driving

    A big boy turbo setup with a stock intake manifold? I hate the upper radiator hose setup, it worries me.

    hahah yeh i know man... like i said it was a 4 yr build and i just wanted to get it on the road... im saving for a JM Fab SMIM... and for the rad hose its pretty much the only thing that works with that exhaust manifold... the car only gets hot when im sitting in traffic and recently i got the manifold coated by jet-hot... but that has only helped a little bit.... the next thing will be to wrap it to see if that helps. i appreciate everyone's input!

    I sure hope you don't typically disconnect the positive terminal first.

    Looks very clean! Like the others, I'm not digging the radiator hose. And I would think you should still be able to put down some decent numbers and times with the stock intake manifold. Just up the boost as toofast said.

    Looks good, but are your tires on backwards?

    I love the way it looks. The color really does it for me. Great work on exterior detail.

    BUT the intake manifold isn't as bad as you make it seem. Plenty of people are in the 11s with it and some are in the 10s. The key is big boost, big methanol and mediate the mixture with the timing adjustments.

    The car could easily make more power, it would make about 10-15 hp per degree of timing, but i have a discontinued Cometic head gasket that i already know is gonna fail, so we kept it a safe tune( head gasket actually went last night).... i'm only about $1500 from really bringing it to life... JM FAb Intake, Meth Kit and a new head gasket and i will be back with some good numbers!

    I really appreciate everyone's input!

    Which discontinued Cometic head gasket are you referring to? I wasn't aware they they discontinued any of them for the 4G. Is yours a special thickness or something?

    About the rad hose, i wish i had something that would work better,but AN fittings are way too expensive and the only way i can really do anything about it is if i cut the thermostat housing weld it at a different angle and get some mandrel bends to make a solid rad hose with the couplers. This was the quickest and cheapest way to make it work for now, trust me i definitely wanna change it for something more efficient. Again thanks for the compliments guys

    It was the Cometic HP... 2 of my friends had it before me, and they both blew the gasket. Both cars were strokers and one of then had a GT35R and the other had a GT40
