Interesting to find out what helped the "T5 decel chatter." Some 140 series cars I've worked on in the past were fitted with one of these band aid shaft flywheels to quite them done and keep them from eating u-joints.

That's funny, I was just looking at your thread. Nice car.

I have no real updates. I took the car on another organized drive, and hammered on it for 1200 miles. My wastegate setup isn't ideal, and it'll creep to 25 psi around 5k rpm. I suspect the dump into the downpipe is a restriction. I also need a better cooling fan and either a bigger overflow tank or a proper expansion chamber, as it'll run hot on sustained hill climbs.

Other than that, nothing is happening. House projects and preparing for a baby in August have fully eclipsed car stuff for the time being.

Thanks man. Hopefully it winds up being about 1/2 as good as yours.

Aim higher. You already have at least three times the paint on it.

We can talk radiator stuff at Davis Tyler. This setup I am doing is looking straight up legit and should have the capacity to cool even with boost. Should have it on the road this weekend.

Can you share with the class once you're content with the results? Definetly would like to improve cooling down the road if I go OHC.

Definitely.

As it is, recored stock radiator with a 3-row brass core and a DeRale efan/shroud setup, spec'd at 2100cfm on high. Had a fitting added above the lower hose so I can run a switch in the radiator as well, plan to run the BMW 2-stage switch that runs 195/180 and 210/195.
