Having gone from n/a to 8v plus T to 16v plus T holy **** adding a turbo to the n/a 8v is a giant difference. A good microsquirt tune, a bar of boost, and even with still an M cam the car was lots more fun. I highly encourage the plus T to you wagon.

Thanks boss. Thinking I'll do the local events (IPD, etc) and tear into it. Should have it running again by Davis.

Let’s do this...


How to fix pulled coils on head? Take head to machine shop? Aluminum welder? Scrap B21FT and plus-t the 230? JB Weld?

Check head for flatness, check guides / valves, replace seals? And what exactly is a “husher?”

Little rubber thingies that go under the valve bucket/shim to make it shut up. Not necessary, I forgot to put the new ones in when I did my motor..

Got a "541" and a spare. Disconnect the "Mopar" box with the breakerless distributor as I recall.

If I wanted to reseal the TB03, is this something I can do? Where do I get parts?

This one’s half the price and does the exact same thing. Bonus, made in the USA.

Sweet. Something about having a boost control inside the car.

Went for a hike with the Missus yesterday. +/- 10 miles of gravel roads to get to the trail head. Dang car has never been this dirty before. Made the first pass of clean up with the leaf blower. Yuck.

Car ran great BTW. The suspension soaked up the occasional surprise mud hole with no ominous crashing sounds. The exhaust sounds awesome pulling revs under bridges.

Pulled the wheels today to clean for IPD. Tried the new impact. It is not strong enough to consistently break loose the lugs. It is ok, once the breaker bar has made the rounds.
