    My favorite part of this whole build is that the turbos are where the stock fuel tank goes and you converted it to the fuel cell in the trunk. I've been playing around with the thoughts of a twin turbo setup in a first gen and you sir have found the best way.

    Yea??? I'm sure it now feels like it just wants to hack a limb off with a rusty ax instead of murdering you in your sleep by blowing up your home with a nuke... Lol 900whp would be utterly insane I want that so much drooooools next time I am up in the pacific NW seeing family I want to see this mother effer in action.

    You going to run that thing at Pacific? I run there alot with my pro class car.

    I run over to bremerton on occasion as well but I like pacific's new track. Used to suck in a high powered car when they used to have that dip in the track at about the 150 mark always used to unload the tires and make for a hairy pass.

    Rolling on the throttle I see. What tires you got on that thing? Looked like you caught a good amount of spin in 3rd. LOL

    Re: my new project

    yeah its hooking alot better in 3rd with the 4 pepole that were in the car, with just me it has no chance in 3rd but it is also alot fast with just me

    i did see the other tt V on tech. its good to see other guys playing with these cars. im not a big fan of how low the turbos are on his car but to each his own and more power to him for going out and making it happen. id love to see his dyno sheet on the stock motor

    Re: my new project

    so i couldnt find any coilovers that were more drag race oriented for the v1s and all the decent coil-overs that i did find are in the 2600$$ range and up.
    sadly strange dosnt sell any thing that will work off the self in the double adjustable version. so i am going to modify the strange ones they do sell. after measuring the stockers i found thtat strange had one that was almost the same stroke and length. just the mounts on both side of the new ones are spherical bushings. i need atlest one side to have a fork style mount to attach to the lower shock mount on the knuckle.the best way i can see to adapt the new socks is to unscrew the baring off the shaft side and make a new steel piece with the same 2 steps in it that the old one had to hold the spring perch. im going to reuse the forks off the stock shocks to cut down on cost and i think they are plenty strong enough. the adptor will be made of steel so i can weld the stock fork to it.

    the top mounts are going to be much easier, just a plate a little bigger then the old one with some tabs on it for the shock to mount to. for some added strength ill sandwich a 1/8" plate top and bottom

    im still waiting on my guy to cut the parts for me but i post what i have so far




    kinda scary cutting a chrged shcok, i went very slow with a grinder and then finished the cut off with a fine toothed sawzall





    while my car was up on jack stands i figured i do a oil change and clean some other stuff up.by the grace of god while the oil cap was off i grabbed a flash light and looked in the hole. low and behold the rocker next to the oil cap is missing the C-clip to hold the baring on, well most of the C-clip is missing. i pulled the VCs and found 3 others that were ether missing or mostly missing. i also found about 1/3 of a C-clip next to one of the valve springs. WTF
    long story short after alot of effing around and phone calls i ended up getting a set of comp ultra golds to eliminate the problem of the shity comp trunuin upgrade kit.



    the baring walking out the opposite side




    i aslo got a new boost controler that will do boost by gear based on VSS vs RPM as me e-boost2 will not

    Re: my new project

    in the interst of keeping it all together :
    i figured it was time to get this thing built as i have had the parts laying around for a bit.
    i planed n running 5 -10 AN lines originally but cut it down to 3. i think it will be just fine with the 3 -10 AN lines.



    it passed the water test, cant ask for alot more then that



    im welding on a 30amp breaker so i have to pre heat so i can weld @ 110 amps instead of 180+

    had to make a custom short back cap to get in the tight spaces.

    you can see that i added a triangle to the end of the breather that will be a PS reservoir.

    more preheating with my custom torch holder.
