Well - the Section 8 turbo 4-eye got a re-tune today from Keith @ Big Shot Dyno and it's running like a dream now :rock:

Combo can be found here:
http://www.skilledit.com/index.php?option=com_content&task=view&id=23&Itemid=33

Biggest issue that i'm going to have now is that there's no possible way that I can see the shortblock surviving for very long. Part of the game so you roll with it. Next combo will be a 351w and then I won't have a shortblock crying on me.

Anyhow - only 2 mods for the year but they were big ones.

Swapped the stock lower/boxed upper intake combo over the Winter for a Typhoon lower/RPM upper intake.
Also sent the converter back to Redneck to have it built for my combo. We bought it used last year and just threw it in the car hoping that it would be close enough to race on. It worked, not well, but it was long past due to have it setup for my car.

Here's the rundown on the numbers the car has put down since the turbo install.

2008 - 415rwhp/487rwtq on 9lbs of boost - car ran upper 10's
2k8-2k9 Unknown power on 12lbs of boost - car ran 10.50's

Added Typhoon lower/RPM upper:
460rwhp/500rwtq - car was crazy lean on the dyno

Sent the converter out for a rebuild:
506rwhp/540rwtq - car was still lean on the dyno

Re-tune produced this today:

Should be Tuesday as long as the weather holds. I'll be trailering it the first few visits to the track.

Goal is still 10.30's and i'm going to throw a lit match at the car if it doesn't hit those numbers this year.

3800-4100 is what Redneck told me, they couldn't give an accurate stall speed because of the converter but that's what it seems to stall at according to the numbers.

I'll be sure to post my full slip, no problem I always do.

Nice numbers...look at that torque!

When you swapped to the Typhoon lower/RPM upper did you notice a difference in your powerband?
