Damn that blows. And ok I will search for it.

How old is the bed? How much for a new motor? For me, having a motor on a bed reminds me of an old folks home...cant help it.

Seriously? All because of misfires. That is not good at all. Maybe this is why people are not posting times at the 1/4 mile. I'm gonna upgrade to the g5 board, possibly meth, and put some sticky tires on there first.

Yea, you knew something was up. Decent number of those kits sold, and you dont go with that big of power and dont track it. Even if you suck at launching, the trap speeds should be awesome and no one is talking. Its probably a frantic scramble to get the problem fixed. But it looks like a n54 high boost problem than a ST problem and may take some time to resolve.

Agreed. Maybe that is why Vishnu is not as prominent as they were before.

Bed is a little more than 2 years old. Haven't looked into the cost of a new motor yet as it just started crapping out last night.
