|y2k02||I've been running the qa1 front tubular kit since 05.|

When I was on the dyno, ambient temps were *97.
Driving now with 60-70 temps the car feels completely different but still making same boost. I'm almost happy for winter (NOT). I can do my valve springs and up the boost next spring. I want ~525whp, just couldn't push the boost with stock springs.

I made 262/301 on my NPI block with these heads and thought that was kinda low also. Maybe it's my heavy ass Mamba wheels.
With the turbo I made 360/450 on 8psi ... 397/453 on 9psi with tuner pulling timing down low to help control tq. That's ~40hp for 1psi. I've been running 10psi since late July (tuned on 7/15) after fixing a few things but I have no numbers for that. When I go to dyno next spring I see what the 10psi was making before we turn it up more.
I'm only 90hp and ~30tq off your numbers with 6psi less. If you're going 15psi on the turbo you should pass your current numbers for fun. I'll be looking for low 500's and I think I'll reach that by 13-14psi.

I can't help with info on boost spikes with a controller. I never ran a different set up to compare it to.

Just curious why you didn't hit higher numbers with your ON3 system? Was it fuel? You have a built shortblock and heads. I made 489 on stock heads and cams with a KB 15psi. I am building on ON3 kit now and was hoping to make more than I made with the KB.

** Also from what I heard a boost controller will potentially give you more chance of boost spike than going with the closest spring to the boost you want and using the boost controller to get the couple PSI you need. someone correct me if I am wrong.
** Get the UPR. This is what I have. Fit great. I haven't put the kit on yet though.

But ya the car runs great in this weather... can't wait for winter's 50-60 degree days! lol
Can't wait to drive the car in the cool weather this winter boosted!

You'll see. Just got to finish your project.
You're lucky enough to get to drive your car year round. Mine will be going up for the winter in a few weeks. Already getting temps down into the 30's at night here.

Call this guy. Sold me one for 675 shipped.
Same guy I told you to call like a year ago when you bought the on3 kit to begin with

|xandraxal||Street car you probably want 12-250|
|September 28th, 2013 08:44 PM|
Glad to see you're going to finish it.
You want UPR not QA1. I went thru LMR when I got mine. The one you linked from UPR is the same so I'd go with where ever you can get the biggest discount.

|Black2vConvertible||daily driver but I want to be able to hook well and have good weight transfer... I don't care about turns. lol..|
|September 28th, 2013 06:59 PM|
|gravik||Will it be a track car or a daily driver/street car? I went with 12-250 because my car is 99% street car.|
|September 28th, 2013 06:56 PM|
That's whats up!
Ok so I'm wanting to buy this k member kit... real quick though... What spring rates should I be looking into???

UPR. You also can get a forum discount if you are on corral. 6% discount so you get like 30 bucks off.

|xandraxal||Personally I wouldn't put anything qa1 on my car. Just a personal opinion|
|September 28th, 2013 02:26 PM|
I would still need castor camber plates but would this work???
