Note: This is only 13 psi max on a very "base" tune. Im unsure yet as to when I will be bringing it to a dyno. But Ill probably run it between 18-20psi fully tuned.

Car looks great man!

I tucked my OMP the wheel well.
Just lengthen the wires a little and it fits perfect up in there.

If you want i'll snap a pic for you of the location.

The dyno visit was a complete fail, My ignition box was faulty so I was only running on 3 plugs..... But I have since replaced the ignition box and all is well. We had the car out on the street running E85 on 20 psi and let me tell ya. Its insane!!!! I might need bigger injectors if I would like to go over 20 psi. Next step is to get to a dyno again. anyways heres a picture at the failed dyno day and a couple at the garage to go along with it.

Have a good one

Neal

I took the car to Powercruise this past summer in Brainerd, MN and raced the car around the track. on 10 & 20 psi. The car still has yet to see a dyno, But even on a street tune it was an absolute Beast. I was Taking on 400&500whp mustangs all weekend. supposedly the Acura RSX I raced (and Beat) had 505whp ......so whats that tell ya. Anyways I have some footage! would anyone like to seeee?
