You now have a power-to-weight ratio greater than the lightest model 350Z with 306hp. That's no slouch.

Most definitely. Probably within the next 2-3 months hopefully. I already have the lightweight flywheel.

I would also like to update on the blow off value issue I was having.

For the 2.3L, the two ports those two solenoids are going into cannot be used for the boost reference. There are valves in there that obscure the measurement; which is why I was having issues.

Ray teed off the fuel pressure sensor vacuum line going on top of the fuel rail; this line seems to be a great dead vacuum reference. That line is running to the blow off value and has another 'T' in it going to the boost gauge. The blow off value and boost gauge are working properly now.

Just thought I'd put that info out there for anyone who had the same problem.

This weekend I will get full pics of everything I put on the car. I really didn't have a lot of time to do so this past weekend. Over 300 miles on the turbo and no issues :)

A few pics I snapped up at McNews....

Strapped up and ready to go...


My girlfriends cousin (who wanted to go with me) and Ray...


Shot of the engine bay....will get this cleaned up a bit more but it works for now.


And the money shot....F2 manifold, Master Power turbo and F2 downpipe tucked in there.



And of course...the two videos I shot.

This is my 3rd run. Ray slowing brought the RPM's up checking the datalog then makes a pull at the end.

This is my final run. Couldn't get the camera to focus quite right but it works.
