    You think the Intercooler could be the restriction?

    feck me thats spiked now boost wise... eak!
    deffo a major difference to the other actuator.. We could'nt get more than 20-22psi before?

    looks to be holding 18psi at high revs - which is normal k04 flat out

    so glad you have rods!

    Its certainly made a difference lol. Its not often it spikes that high, but it seems to be holding 24psi up to 5krpm now. then nose diving down to 16 by the redline, which is why im wondering if its the intercooler causing a restriction? Yeh 22 was absolute maximum even on spool up.

    Yeh Im glad Ive done rods lol. Did some logs running Water injection last night, ambient was 3' and the highest i saw was 17' which makes me think intercooler again.. but even on the same MAF I logged 216g/s :) Picking up my new maf today hopefully..

    I did a pressure test today in the charge pipe, I'm getting 26psi spike, holds 24 dropping to 20psi on the redline. Does this sound ok?

    I will hopefully be climbing that list shortly somewhere near the top, on paper 1st is possible but in reality well..... Time will tell ;)

    Thats not fair, you own the dyno :p Fair play though, must be pretty lively.

    How much more boost can you get it running safely?

    lol
    indeed..

    previously I ran it to 35psi and 9krpm... on its smaller turbo . Only 25psi used so far

    muaha ha ha haaaaa

    I will crank it up when its running on its new hotside as I have the vvt to map in yet... so will make more time to explore its potential before turning it back to sensible (tractable) level. (which surprisingly, when I used the full boost briefly at the last race, it did'nt spin up and fired down the straight like a missile)

    Cool stuff Bill you will surely always own the number 1 spot because if anyone gets close you can wind the boost up :rolleyes:

    Do i pip the lupo off at no 10 with 335 :whistle:

    whats "safe" nothing given this is a race car... and gets driven flat out when it gets driven at all.

    Most tractable power is probably where I am now, given the small dry race last week, and the few times I employed its 25psi it hooked up extremely well. no wheel spin, which was a nice surprise.

    you do... but I will fix that.. :p
    Lupo + a little more timing... still pulls no CF's at all.

    Good to see badgerwagen up and running to make the dyno. Epic power must be a handful on the track.
