    It got better as the day went on. The tune in it was so off that the car didnít want to go. Changed up a few things and off it went. I canít wait to get this car dialed in right. It was just enjoyable driving the car again.

    I decided to dump the wastegate into the exhaust. It’s so hard to weld a thin heat cycled piece of 409 to 304 with a stick welder. It’s easy to weld 16ga or larger metal though. I think it turned out pretty good after fighting with it.

    Still trying to get it to drive smoothly so probably if I take it I will just go there to watch the races. I am however going to take the mustang there next month. How about you?

    I need to get the 93 back to the track and see if I can get it in the 11's. I know it has it in it, just need to get some good weather and a sticky track.

    Me too, I made more tuning progress today than I did in the last two weeks. I was wondering why I wasn’t making any boost and I just found a loose clamp to the intercooler behind the passenger headlight. I’ll have to wait till later this week to try. I just need to get the car to come down to idle slower. It overshoots and dies sometimes at stop signs.

    I hope you get that 11!

    Funny story yesterday I was going around within a mile of my house trying to get my drivability right. A guy in a Prius started yelling at me while at a stop light. Unfortunately I couldn’t hear him over my exhaust,haha.

    Finally got to give the car some gas and it wasn’t showing any boost. I found some boost leaks yesterday. It was leaking heavily around the back of the intake and around the a lot of the vacuum port points. That’s all fixed now except for the brake booster port which I should have fixed tomorrow.







    I accidentally found the above 1:24 model online so I bought it.

    I can hear the turbo start to spin above 4000 rpm but itís not making any boost. Maybe the tune? The turbo is getting oil and wastegate is functioning. I got the boost leaks fixed.

    Found a leaking V-band before the turbo. As soon as put the car back together Iíll see if it makes boost.

    Still having boost issues. Found that I’m having leaking issues. Using water, soap and a shop vac to find my leaks. Sealed up one of three pipes before the turbo today. Also purchased a more forgiving exhaust manifold gasket and vband seals.
