you could probally get a low 14 or a high 13 (with slicks) out of that. Your reaction was terrible, but everything else looked good.

You'll get it down overtime, good job though.

I'm fully aware my reaction was terrible.
This was a Test & Tune night, I wasn't actually racing the guy beside me and cared more about my launch.

I tried a wide variety. I know if I ask everyone will give me different advice as to what works on their home track.
That's why I didn't ask for advice. :)

I agree... I have been studying all the information Sporadic has written and looked at all of the pictures. I have found a place on eBay that sells a flange for an IHI RHB3 that will fit the RHB5 w/ Internal Wastegate. I will opt to use this instead of trying to weld cast iron to mild steel.

I've also noted that Sporadic's down pipe consists of 2 - 90* bends that can easily be purchased from on-line sources. **Note: I have nothing against what Sporadic has done to make his D.P.** I will also be using a 3" exhaust setup also.

Instead of running the charger pipes like he did I will be running my Intake side piping behind the valve cover back around by the battery and down to where the factory box was. My charge piping from the Outlet side will be run like Sporadic's under the Transmission to the FMIC and up to the throttle Body, but I will have a few extra problems since I have a SAP.

I plan on buying a Blow-Thru MAF from Steeda.Ca and use a Mustang MAF which is good to 400HP (so they say). I am in the process of winning a set of 60lb Siemen injectors on eBay, so they will be used. I plan on using a HKS SSQV BOV before the FMIC and run the MAF after the Intercooler.

So far this is what I have got planned. Typically Murphy's Law has something to do with everything I have tried so hopefully he won't show his ugly face.

To keep on the topic, I want to personnaly thank Sporadic for his dedication and all the information he chose to share with us!!!

Anyone else feel their zetec kicking in?

The flange is cast steel, not cast iron and it welded great. :)
I didn't encounter any cast iron in my project.
Please feel free to post up a link/image though so others can see the flange.
Thanks for the complements. :)

It looks like cast iron in your picture. My bad for assuming. I could not figure out how you ended up welding together a piece of cast iron to mild steel! That confused me considering their completely different welding methods. Especially with a flux core mig welder.

So I have found that the RHB3 looks similar but is in fact a different mounting pattern. I am glad I found a website that showed me they are different. Instead I will be using a flange from BMCRace.Com

I have recieved my IHI RHB52 (same as Sporadics) and my 60lb Siemen injectors recently.

Again, Thanks Sporadic!!!
