    Paul does some absolutely fantastic work. I have zero doubts it will be flawless. His subframes are on the red demon.

    First pass tcase let go. I have no idea how many miles were on it when I bought it with the auto swap but I've probably done over 200 passes easily and 5k street miles. My first time breaking a tcase on the auto and it's bone stock. I think it's time to upgrade tcases later on. 2nd pass car felt lazy on the stall up 8500rpm in 2nd the car fell on its face. T-Bolt clamp broke and the i.c pipe completely blew off. I'm going to say the clamp was broke on my stall due to the sh**ty 60ft I've been averaging consistent 1.44-1.47s with this tune up. Low boost 40psi and it was up 3mph in the 1/8mile this was with the pipe blown off at this point. Let off when it shifted to 3rd still ran a 10.2 coasting. 20191019_114526.jpg 20191019_114646.jpg 20191019_114711.jpg

    Well I had a good track session for the most part. 1st pass was easy pass but trapped a new p.b. 2nd pass blew a clamp and lost all boost after hitting 3rd another p.b. 3rd pass used a cheap worm clamp all I could find but that also let go a little higher rpms in 3rd. 2 weeks I'll be hitting the track again. This right here put me .05 seconds from the auto holset record with a blown i.c pipe well before the finish line. Time slips are in order of 3 passes.

    Small update after the last track visit. The 3 runs I noticed my rpms on the drop shifts were higher than normal like 4-600 rpm higher. I dropped the pan and found some metal in the pan so decided to tear down the transmission and send out the converter. I didn't find anything wrong with the trans but precision did call me. The converter had a couple broke fins and the pump itself was broke. For a broke converter and the i.c pipe blowing off I think the car ran pretty good. The converter should be back by the end of the week so possibly this weekend or next weekend I will make my last attempt of the season to hopefully improve my p.b.

    I've been running holsets for a long time and they are great turbos when you look at cost, reliability and performance. With that being said I've had my eye on finding a super 99 with the twin scroll t4 housing. After many many months of searching I found a super 99 with 5 passes and 1 dyno tune with a brand new never used twin scroll housing. I was up in the air whether to buy it or hold off and focus in weight reduction but I decided after this season it's time to move on. I researched a ton and found zero information or results on the super 99 with a twin scroll housing. I know in the t3 flavor I've read it's laggy but I'm not sure what it's being compared to. Based on my results with the Morrison consolidated manifold and my custom machined housing for the holset many said wouldn't work I'd say it should be pretty potent once dialed in. Without further or do the next turbo is here for Kratos. received_567579834058753.jpeg

    Here are some pictures of what I found in the trans pan. Upon tearing down the transmission to clean everything I found a cracked drum as well. Couple of the clutches got tore up from the debris. It ended up tearing the valvebody up pretty good so I had to install a shift kit in my spare valvebody along with some used clutch packs I had sitting around. The trans pump also got it's fair share of debris. I couldn't really feel the grooves with my finger nail but I had one spare so I just slapped a good one in for peace of mind. The converter came back and precision covered it under warranty so I had them restall it to a 6 in preparation for the super 99 in the future. Really hoping to get one more run in but who knows. received_552610508887227.jpeg received_2743542555872353.jpeg 20191111_182922.jpg 20191101_182412.jpg

    Well mission accomplished today. I'm calling it a season even knowing more is on tap. I was not even thinking it would run anywhere near this fast or quick. First couple passes were 9.5s boost was all over the place. Decided to rip the ram air off for the last pass this was regardless if I ran slower or faster because I already ran a 9.51 at this point. Well it worked 9.26@147! The feeling of accomplishment going through all the broke parts, adjustments countless hours fine tuning small stuff and doing this all on my own without a single friends help was not easy. Dave Ruby is the Holset king but I have set the Automatic Holset record and moved to #2 on the list in a street legal/driven 2900 lbs street car. This really makes me 2nd guess putting the super99 on the car. Not sure how much more is left in the turbo but a upgraded tcase to allow me to launch harder for those low 1.3s maybe a high 1.2 60ft and if I got down to the 2450lbs range well I think that 8.77 is in the cross hairs. Lots and lots of time to think about everything as I will not be racing or driving at all next year. So there won't be any updates in the foreseeable future. Thanks to everyone that has followed my journey and I hope this inspires you guys to keep pushing forward. Long live the DSM!

    Josh LOL! I cut my hand deep while loading the car. I had 2 small bandages and some electrical tape and nothing was going to stop me from running that day! 73070017_10221573338428927_5316715500045074432_o.jpg
