Last time I weighed it.......3360 with around 50Lbs of tools, and at least 50lbs of subwoofer/box/and amp.... and 1/2 tank of fuel. My best guess is that If I took all that out and dropped it to about 1/4 tank, it would be right around the low 3200's.


I just looked back at my mod list......Jesus i spend too much money......LOL

Thats very true.... but I have to do something about the rust issues this year. i've waited too long as it is. Its getting bad around the rear wheel wells and at the bottom of the doors. if i don't do something this year, there won't be any point in modifying the car further. At that point I'd be looking for a clean roller.

I Just got quoted on body work - paint ( I can shoot paint). 400 Bucks. Not too bad. Now, I need to get ahold of the gook with that RFL BOV, get my center stack trim back from Radio Docter and have Nate put in a wideband bung for me. 29th thru the 4th its going under the knife, so you all will see it around sometime after that!

I'm pretty sure that's John Hubers' car. Its bad ass. My car will never be that fast.


I'm hoping for low 12's to high 11's EVENTUALLY...... thats after a whole lot more money put into it. I have a wierd electrical issue now, so the car isnt actually running as we speak.

Fixed the issue, and took some fuel out of it. Runs pretty strong, but I'd like to get it on the rollers to make sure I don't break anything!


20 PSI feels pretty good, but I might bump that up a bit higher depending on how the engine likes it.

Okay. Changed out the Turbo with a better sized unit, Adjusted fuel pressure, and I still need to dial some timing into it.

I'm thinking i'll set it at about 20PSI for now, or it will start running over the stock injectors.

It runs good, and felt pretty strong at 10PSI, so we will see if I can bump it up a bit and make it fairly quick.
