Hey guys just letting you know what she ran. [email protected] For some reason it's not spooling like it used to. Very lazy in the mid range now and once it does spool it's like a freight train. Why would this start happening? Could the cheap turbo be going out?

I'm running 10 psi. Explorer intake and 3.27's. I need 28's cause im hitting like 5800 and this motor is stock and wont build power past 5k. I found the spooling problem, throttle cable and TV cable were loose on the TB.

I have the same kit and a 302 and I build power past 5000 says my Dyno numbers. You should be hitting around what you are. By the sounds of it you need to get the 60 foot down. Pretty easy to 1.6 with what you have at least. At 121 mph you could run high 10s or really close to it. What stall converter do you have?

turbo newbie so please ignore my ignorance, but this kit on a stock longblock with a fuel system is what you have ?

How much do you have tied up in it witht he fuel system and tune ?

Just bought a HCI notch and got all the stock parts with it. I may just put all the stock stuff back on sell the HCI setup and buy a turbo kit.

With a Dyno tune which you'll need, you'll have close to $3000

I have about that. maybe a little cheaper. My 60 sucks. I have a C4 with trans brake going in now. That should help. Mine doesn't build much over 5200 on my dyno. But I have stock heads and cam too.

Ive got 4500 in my on 3 setup now but i bought all new stuff. Pms rails lines fpr drivers alt bracket upgraded turbo new flex pipe nickel and dime. I already had hci when i started my build. I do also pull a few cars on liter bikes on the hiway which is fun. Whoever has the lag problem take a look at your flex pipe. I put a new one on my car the first day i had it running cause i read the threads on how they were collapsing and didnt want to risk it. I also got the master power turbo when i ordered my kitand when that thing spools its a beast.
