The dump pipe is done. I also had to fit a half inch pickup into the cooler piping for the converter to stop it running out of gas in 4th gear after cruising at 1 or 2 psi. Now it runs perfect so Ive turned the boost up to 9psi and have my crane retarding ignition by half a degree per psi. It seems to like it.

I can now accelerate up hills in 4th where I would usually have to slam it in back into 3rd gear and give it max revs just to maintain the speed limit.

Here is a pic of the pickup for the converter.
