Thanks!

Put the exhaust back on the car and dropped it off at the shop, passed emissions and inspection. Time to remove the cat. :lol:

Time to really put some miles on it now, except it's going to snow tomorrow. :(

What made you decide to run 2.3 liters? I gave this some thought for my build wanting better revs but not giving up too much torque.

A big part of it was it wasn't done a lot and there was a group of us that went in on it so it made it cheaper. I've put a little over 400 miles on it so far and from what I feel it's not really much different from the 2.5, granted I haven't driven it hard yet as I'm still on the break in tune. We'll see what kind of numbers it puts down very soon.

I believe I'll be good to 8.5-9 as I have fully build heads as well, thanks to Headgames. I think if any loss it would be torque.

How do you have your boost gauge running? Is it off from the intake manifold? I'm just curious because I'm about ready to do mine off from the cosworth intake manifold...

I checked a bit ago, I have it t'd off the second nipple on the right.

Went and got a car wash, the salt has been on too long.

Hoping the weather clears up soon so I can finally get tuned. Motor has 900 miles on it.

Like my garage attic? lol.

Earlier today I was thinking about ordering a new set of tires and putting them back on.

Picked up a spare fuel pump assembly and a Walbro 400. Hoping I can just mod the extra housing I got to fit the 400 so I can just drop it in.

Also got more paint to respray the tails.

Went to get tuned today, had an oil leak so we had to cut it short and I had to leave my car at the shop. :( Thankfully they let me borrow one of the shop cars. :)
