    Turbo WOT 7psi to REDLINE

    We tunned the car today and did our first WOT to redline. OH MY GOD!!!
    We pulled to redline. Full boost came at 4800rpm and flatlined at 7psi and stayed to redline. And this car pulled freaking hard as sh.....!. Jim thinks it may be low 12's -high 11's if we can shift right at peak power. The dyno will tell us where that peak is at. Stay tunned for dyno results.

    I think it took us about 1.5- 2 months total. But that included all the engineering and let me tell you there was a LOT of engineering. Now that we've done one we could probably do a complete job in about 3-4 weeks with the professional touches this has. We ground all the exhaust and intake welds smooth to make it look like one continous pipe and then painted it all black. Now THAT took a lot of time.

    I'd be real interested to see the dyno sheet (and timeslips when you get all the tuning sorted out.)

    That is a thing of beauty. Set up looks Amazing. Did you have to do any work to the front bumper or anything else other than moving the computer to get the kit to fit? Can't wait to see dyno #s and 1/4 mile times, and video of Turbo Caddy raping Cobra on the highway lol. How much you gonna be selling these for?

    That's awesome! I would say, as much as you are excited about doing the buildup, and driving the car, we are almost as excited to read any updates about it. A turbo Northstar is just an awesome idea!
