to make a long story short, the most boost we could get out of the turbo was 24.5 with yielded 785/775. we tried taking off the breather to see if we could get more air. Same results. So I just chalk it up to having small piping and no port work on the heads. So we pull the car off the dyno and are going to fine tune it while driving. The dynojet does not load the car like a MustangDyno does. So we should see 26-27psi on the street, and may need to through a little more fuel in. So we start some 3rd gear rolls. 65mph start rolling into the gas and it just boiled the new MT drag Radials on cement. So we do it again this time I just drop the hammer in 3rd peddling the car to 90mpg and grab 4th the boost gauge went to 27psi and now the car is just skating down hwy 121 at over 100mph!!!! I had never in my life time ever felt anything like that...So we got the data Manny needed and were on our way back to the shop, and I wanted to do that again. so here we go same as before the car hit 27psi(which should be around 800hp)and the dropped on it face boost went down to 10psi and there is a ton of smoke coming out the exhaust. We get back to the shop, pull the charge tube off and the compressor wheel is totally loose and hit all sides of the housing. So the turbo has probably been going bad for awhile, Brandon had it off in no time and they were shipping it back to precision today to be rebuilt..
To say the least I am very happy with how the car preformed. I have never been in a street car skating the tires at over 100mph. Truly a butttt puckering feeling. And the new set up looks sick and very clean Iam very happy with how everything turned out. Blowing up the turbo..that is just one of those things that happen. It will be rebuilt and then it will be stronger than it was. I don't have any Vids sorry. But I can say i did not lose any low or mid range power/Tq running the Sullivan with the HPP upper. Like i said i got out of there with out grabbing my dyno sheets, but when we get the car back together i will post an overlay of the 715 pull over the 778. The Sullivan ramps and pulls much harder not to mention the improved throttle response with the acufab. One more thing for you guys running sticks it is a must to get the MGW shifter. OMG what a difference, I would have never believed that a shifter can make that much difference. By far one of the best mods I have done to the car.:D

Well at least it's not snowed in. I couldn't get my car out of my garage right now if I wanted too.

well, atleast you got to drive it at 27psi :) most people on here wont ever do that
The 27# will only be used on nice nights when there might be some racing going on in lil mexico..;) But as for daily use it will be set at 15.5# = 600rw
Really the 800 is just for the fun factor of skating down the hwy at 100+mph:eek:

Thanks for the props..
