Coasted a 14.1first pass, antifreeze all over the place. Hopefully just a head gasket. Getting towed home as we speak.

Sounds like my car...it runs amazing, until I go to the track - and it seems to know when I'm there. That's when it decides to act up.

Should have something to post here soon. Pretty much same setup, with traction this time though.

Head gasket in transit. Figuring an early september trip by the time MS is back on and happily tuned up.

Damn son, points for the best coast!

For the badge, get a dyno pull at some point and we can go from there.

Looks like mine will take yours from the light by a good bit, once you get half track you start the freight train. Small turbo FTW for the daily, big turbo FTW up top.

And BTW, thanks for being an ass and kicking me from the top spot......

Suspension is done and seems to work really nice so far.
Now Im trying to get the tune back where it should be. After fixing the fuel restriction it was crazy rich and way down on power. I have been (slowly) trimming fuel out of it and am getting close. Took a sloppy hptuners workshop this past Saturday. First pull was 10/10/10 and pretty pathetic numbers. Put some timing in it and took 20% of fuel out and made 537whp on 10 psi.
Im pretty novice at the tuning so Im taking baby steps.

Its never a bad idea to take your time and walk up on the tune.

And it's definitely cheaper than walking down on the tune, after things ventilate. lol

Perhaps labor day weekend I'll get the MS back on. I'm waiting on the head swap until I can get it actually flowed, put some solid info out there on what some valves will do in a 531. Got funds, but the guy in town with a flow bench is hammered until the end of the month.

looking at the time table and finances, I'm hoping I can get the gold car's engine back together this year. gotta get new springs/retainers, seats installed and cut, headgasket, might need a set of pistons (might not...), eeeek. I need to reinforce the connecting points for the rear trailing arms on the 940 so I can slap it with harder launches.

OH Cool. No wonder the trap speed was up there in V8 territory. Same number of Valves.
