hahaha, everyone kept asking what that noise was and i couldnt hear it in the car at all. only thing i can think of is the segregated turbo elbow, there is a metal piece to separate the wastegate exhaust from the exhaust through the turbo and i ground it down to clear the turbo housing. Must be the exhaust gases when the wastegate opens. My only thought, anyone ever hear something like it?

yeah ive heard that sounds before. From a ****ing train. But seriously, that seems like a unique combination of your waste gate and whatever exhaust your running on there. Sounds absurd.

little update:
had the day off so i decided to work on the pig
figured it was time to move the fuel lines to the correct side since the wastegate dump was pointed right at them and the lines in the bay looked awful.









Also took out the turbo elbow to try and fix the train horn, this is what i think is causing it so i made a new piece, of course i forgot to take pics.



Started the fiberglass mold for my gauge cluster so the tach can be properly mounted.

Small update. With the drift season over, its time to start tearing this slut apart and "re build" it. I havent worked on the car since the last update but i did get it to a dyno to satisfy my curiosity. Didnt turn out to make as much as I was hoping because the manual boost controller decided to break so my only full pulls where at 7psi, was running it a 11-12psi before. It ended up making 227whp which i guess isnt bad for everything being stock.

first two pulls that stopped at 3800 rpm were with the bad boost controller


So the plans for this winter is to completely tear it down and start fresh. Going to rebuild it so it can be driven on the street, cant stand only being able to enjoy it once a month. Hopefully ill be able to get started with it soon, more updates to come.

got started on the winter build, i stripped everything off the car in hopes to find a clean shell to trade for but that was wishful thinking. So now i have a stripped shell which gives me the perfect opportunity to go through it and clean everything up. Started with the engine bay, ground down some of the goober welds and used some body filler to clean up the tubs. Also chopped out the existing rad core and started making a new removable one with a similar design.






Just a few imperfections to touch up with glazing putty and hopefully paint tomorrow
