About “Project Boost”


bought the car 4 years ago for 800 bucks,dealer stated it needed a fuel pump when alls it needed was a ign module


UPDATE TIME
12.2@112mph witht he 60-1 turbo at 9 psi

UPDATE TIME
3 new videos added
first up installed a new t3/60-1 garrett turbo
second up
CAR WAS ON THE DYNO FOR THE FIRST TIME
had a few issues but put done some really good numbers
first issue was the ignition timming would not advance so it was locked at 8* btdc
second issue was it would not rev up over 5,100-5,300 rpms
with the 268/272 cam the power should really come in right around 5,600 and on the dyno it looke dlike it was going to but once it hit 4,800 rpms it just nosed over

even still the car put down
272RWHP AND AN AMAZING 376FTLBS @ only 9psi
i have no plans to redyno the car as im sure its making more then enough power even at low boost now thats its fixed to push me into the high 11's

About “The midnight confessions”

Got this car last August. Was looking for something entirely different when my wife came across this one. She used to have a '79 Camaro so she really liked this car. So for the sake of family harmony, we got this one. I think I like it more than she does now. I'm glad she found it.

 

Specs for “Project Boost”

the car has recently just gone 13.008@104.85mph @ only 9 psi

though after reviewing the data logs form the run i have maxed out the 36.6 pound injectors and the car went dead lean for the last 3-400 ft of the track

on the way are some 65# injectors a methonal injection kit and a larger turbo to replace the small t3/t4 i have been running

the hybrid turbo i have been running is only good for 425 crank hp and i should be putting down about 390 crank as the car sits on 9 psi

update
(9 psi on the 60-1 turbo got me down to a 12.2@112 mph
