Havent had much time to post updates, but the car is out and about roaming the streets.

It is proving to be an EXTREMELY fun combination.

I need a converter bad, as that is the only thing really holding me back...but regardless it builds boost and screams when it's moving.

***cant stop dropling***

Man, what a come up. (Did I really just type that?!)

This folks, is what happen when a dream turns reality. This is what this hobby is all about!

Last I read you were putting down close to 500 rwhp on the dyno?

What's your set back with your current converter? What are you looking to get as an upgrade?

Bitching build all around. Keep it up! we are rooting for ya!

Btw, I'll have to hit up that paint shop you went to, for my '88 or '89. Can't save them both.

Thanks guys,

I have had one trip to the track on the combo so far. Low boost it was trapping 117mph during tuning just walking it off the line. Now that it is much more dialed in and the boost is turned up, I don't see why it wouldn't trap 125-130 range.

Converter is stock which is what's killing me haha. This thing really needs some stall to get into boost quicker!
I have inquiries out to a few builders, just need to make a decision and pony up some dollars.

Cool, this would be an AWESOME race against my T-type.

Same kinda build, finally got my Te-60 on it with a power-logger.

It ran 112-113 with the stock turbo and short tires  Twisted Evil
