Amazing how your speedo went up as quick as your tach!

Yea but are inaccurate because I melted a hole in the coupler coming from the turbo two Saturdays ago but this Saturday I'm going back with adjustable gears as well so hopefully bigger trq numbers

See with my car, I find that it performs better when you do something like a third gear pull as apposed to first gear. It just seems to pull HARD the higher the gears go.

Hopefully 250-275whp range.

Depending on the transmission, the 1:1 ratio in the transmission is 3rd or 4th gear. So that makes sense.

Mtx 75 is fourth gear and third I believe and yeah I won't be happy under 280whp. If I could find a Y2K manifold I'd be at 300

Just curious, what causes the tach and speedo to lose comms about 1/3 the way in? The cluster fluttered once before that, but they were OUT for 5-10 seconds there.
