I will just for you!! LOL!

And I will take it to the local 1/8 mile drag and get a few passes for a baseline...

Then later next summer with Turbo dialed in... I'll re-run..

I'm actually interested in 60 ft times..

I'm curious to see your drain line placement, as I like what you're doing. Keep up the cool stuff!

AMel.... you've written here before that you don't always see things the way others do....

What else would a setup like this be good for?

Quick acceleration from a stop-light in my book always equals. . . . Street Racing!
But we don't talk about illegal activities on this forum, it is family friendly. eye rolling smiley
But, as you have noted, I don't always see things in the same light as others, so what else would it be good for?

I'm not sure it's illegal to accelerate quickly to the speed limit as long as your tires don't break traction and you don't shoot past that limit. another legal use is to push the car to 70 in the acceleration lane for the interstate or even harder after you've stopped on the side of the interstate for some reason.

There are street racing shows all over TV now which I would consider family friendly.

Matt why'd you go out the left side and not the right?

WOW! Look at that! Yours will be cleaner with the turbo low. IMO. I should have known blow through since you said Blow off valve.

No Blow off valve hopefully.... Internal wastegate should suffice.

Accelerating hard is illegal here in TX. The ticket is called "acceleration to contest" and you don't have to be racing anyone. Totally up to the cops. I've been given many over the years just because the cop was a jerk and I didn't really do anything wrong. It's hard to fight a ticket that is totally subjective.
