Had to crank timing way up. Going to have to check crank trigger angle as it seems to need wayyy more ignition advance than I have seen before at this boost level.

I got a time in on August 3rd... Local 1/8 mile track. They don't hand time slips but they post the times on their Web site the following day. No trap speed posted though. Did an 8,740 at 15 PSI on worn out street tires and a slipping clutch. Including a printscreen of the Web site's result page for the OEM class in hope it qualifies me for a registered result for the East Coast.

Car is a 1990 Volvo 740 16V +T on Megasquirt 2.0, CAS, COP and forged HBeam rods and pistons. It has a Nathan intake and a mega big intercooler.

Interesting. I don't know how to assign points to that run without some comparison to other cars running 1/8 mile. But I'm going to post it for comparison. I do have a 1/8 mile split time from most of the 1/4 mile folks.

Nice combo, that car should move out.
