Went to Heathcote Sunday just gone.
Managed a 12.8/ MPH unknown as the board didn't work and RH lane slips didn't show it. 60 foot time of 2.1
Full street trim. Rear tyres just let down to 20psi

Going back out again with some Hoosier circuit radials to try launch it harder and get the 60 foot down

Had the car retuned by Kendall Baker and made 258rwkw. A 15rwkw gain
Went to Heathcote today and run 11.73 @119MPH.
1.74 60 foot. Was having axle tramp issues.
Next up is a bigger wastegate as the old one was restricting it to 12.5psi.
A bigger intercooler as this one is at it's limit. Current is 400x230x65. Gunna go to a 500x300x100
Plus better tyres, Currently using circuit tyres. Gunna get some ET Streets or something.
Then a retune with more boost and hit the track again. Better start saving the dollars

so after the rear oil seal decided to go letting oil into the exhaust and having an intermittently noisy lifter i've pulled the turbo off and am doing a rebuild. Plus upgrading the front wheel to and 11 blade billet.
Modifying the stall from a 2800 to 3500.
upgrading the cooler from 400x230x65 to a 500x300x76.

she may be off the road for a few months but it'll be back cranking harder than ever. I'm determined to get a 10.99 with the turbo and motor. the MPH is up there

So the rebuild kit turned up yesterday. Rebuilt the turbo today. Then the turbo goes into a machine shop tomorrow to have the rear of the new billet wheel milled down so it fits correctly.
New cooler turned up a week ago. Car will go into the exhaust joint in the new year to get the cooler pipes modded and the cooler fitted.
Sent off a spare cam i had to get a JMM Dev5 ground up.
Gunna hold off on the stall at this time as the new cam may make the stall flare out a bit.
Then for a retune in the new year. 15psi this time ;)
