OK, so my Summit made over 400HP on what was called a "safe" tune. No more that 10 degrees of timing with boost set at 21LBS, creeping to 25PSI. I drove the car today and WOW!! Blown away by the power it makes. Don't get me wrong, my previous builds were 70 Mack 1, V-8 ranger and 70 big block Chevelle before I went turbo. I build a turbo 84 escort that had a best run of 13.6 @107MPH. Here is a video of it running 13.8 @102MPH
And then I built a 80 Corolla with a Mitsubishi Starion driveline, holset, 1600cc(these engines used 2 injectors, not 4)Megasquirt that ran 11.6 @117MPH, so I have built fun cars and driven quite a few more (I am a mechanic) customer cars.
This was AWESOME!!!!!!!! Wheel spin in 1st and 2nd, vehicle swatted in 3rd like it was being shot out of a cannon. I have lurked and read on here about these cars for the entire time but obviously I was underestimating what this engine/setup can do. I will post some pictures tomorrow of it completed, I have to chase down some rattles and vibration along with a exhaust leak.
Boost is such a drug!!!!
I will be going to Lebanon Valley in the spring to see what it does, shake down runs.
Short story but there was a member on here names something like Boscoe (Virginia area I think) who was selling a FWD white on Ebay in 2004 ish. He said it made 425HP, but ground going into one of the gears. I made a deal to buy but and, when I was leaving to go get it, he said he sold it. That is when I started to look for a clean CSM.
Forward TOO many years and being sidetracked with life, I feel like my balls grew to the size they were in my 20's. Not as big as many of you but like the grinch's heart they got bigger today.
I did a 3rd gear pull to redline and looked down to see 115MPH on the speedo, It felt like 80MPH.
Sorry for the long post but this build is awesome and I am pretty wound up at the moment.
Special thanks to all that helped me AND very special thanks to Raif ( not sure if anybody on here knows who he is) for the parts and expertise to make this happen!!
