You obviously have never driven a 924. Lol

Hosed off the 244, took it for a spin and popped a tire. Getting some tires mounted on it thursday. Going to street tune it on e85 for around 16-18psi for Davis do I can hit the track and make a fast pass with it. Hoping for tens considering I can actually launch the car now, also with how little timing I'm running. I am going to remove the exhaust and throw in the sway bar at the track.

Aero mods complete. Got a proper air filter on it. Drove to work today on the worn out drag radials in the rain. So that was fun.

Did the trifecta today. Tuned the 244, fixed the kick down cable on the 245, and drove the hell out of the 993

I was close to the same, got sidetracked. Tuned the wagon, needed to do an oil change on the V50 and pull the radiator in the 140. One of those three happened...kinda. lol

Update on the tuning on pumpgas I maxed out the 4lb wastegates spring and mbc at around 14psi according to the datalog. It's sitting at only 11.5 degrees of timing right now on straight 91 with no water meth. Going to swap to my fourteen pound wg spring and get a better boost controller on there to test it out. I have it setup to add around 8 degrees of timing on e100 so if the e85 is good it will add around 6-7 degrees which wakes it up pretty well. I can't wait to turn it up more and see what this turbo is capable of. And cross my fingers the engine is loose enough that it won't scatter all over the road

Erik, do you have a 5.3l or a 6.0l in this thing? I just got mine running on the MS3 gold box with 80's, but I can't get it to stay idling for anything. My AFR's are all over the place. What did you do for a base tune just to get yours going? I'm hoping to go play with all of you guys this year again.
