I'm the same way. Never been to a 1/4 mile track, although a friend of mine who's building out a C5 vette may convince me to make a trip to NED this spring...

here's a really quick video on the wet highway with some horrible shifting. I'll take some better videos later this week when I have my summer wheels/tires back on... these 205/65 snow tires just aren't cut out for this type of thing

around 18.8psi. I wouldn't sit around and compare this run to many things though, it was more to show the car working. I'll do some real testing later this week

i was just asking. its not to compare i was just curious.
do you know how high of boost these turbos can handle without losing power and of coarse with race/meth
and im guessin 19 psi is the highest for pump?
or is 19psi ur "break in" tune

We were pretty conservative, I'll be getting back on the dyno sooner than later to push it a bit more. All the logs at 18-19psi looked perfect though, super smooth in all respects. This is all on pump 93 octane so far, we'll be doing some race gas testing as well.

true, im just curious to see how much these babies can handle b.c for the price they will be at they better be worth every penny. i dont want to make the same power with stock turbos vs SST

already we're making a good amount of power over the maxed out stock turbos on pump gas. In my opinion it was worth every penny

I thought I read the entire thread, but perhaps I missed it. How many pennies were they?

Ha! I don't have anything Dinan... and am well out of warranty. You're barking up the wrong tree on that one. I just think it's stupid when people think they can mod the hell out of their car and still have a warranty.
