CD009 has been rock solid. I have a 3.5 rear end so 6th is useless. Forward mount shifter would be too far forward on 7 series, still using the Yoshifab shifter.

Interesting. Did you run a resonator or restrictive muffler?

BNE Suspension is working great.

I ran a straight-through minimal resonator. The car was so loud I had to drive with earplugs in.

It was ok with a helmet on, but not sure if i would want to put up with it for an enduro setup.

It was extremely light

Good to know good to know. One more thing: does it resonate and rattle like a T5?

Very hard to tell in my car. Maybe. Didn’t notice it this weekend. My team mate has one in his 745 behind a LS and says it doesn’t.

Thanks for the response. Car is much louder, not as loud as most Miatas.

So this shiny part arrived yesterday from ATP. T3/T4 50 trim .63 a/r




Does not have a boost reference nipple. Are those typical tapped 1/8-27 NPT?

We have to skip Thunderhill. Too many family things that weekend. Next race is Lucky Dog Willow Springs April 30 - May 1. I have never been on Big Willow, I am excited/scared.

Yep.
Pull the compressor housing, and drill and tap the boss. Or add a weld bung to your charge plumbing (my preference).

Good info on the fuel tanks! As others in this thread, I did check the local yards and found they do like to puncture them.

Well thats closer for you also. Been there for a track day its pretty fun track. Big wide open power track pretty much. Turn 9 can be fun or scary, definitely hauling thru there. Look up jack willow springs track day iirc. Has a porsche but has good pointers.
