Also my front engine mount cracked at the harbor freight weld. My original mount setup was strong but too tight and couldn't be removed. When I remade it all I had was the harbor freight welder. Didn't take much to rip those welds, when doing so both axles made contact with frame and damaged boots.

Driveshaft turned out awesome. I like how you did the carrier bearing mount.

First test launch. 35psi in the tires. 4link setup to not hit the rear tires very hard. 25psi wastegate spring for boost and nitrous on till 30mph. I hit 50mph in the vid.

have you thought about using a vacuum pump out of a Volkswagen or Audi? This will give you the ability to hold lots of boost without pulling through your brakes.

I used a SSBC Vacuum pump on my FWD. I will say be careful of holding too much back as you will start to strip the gears in the trans.

My best advice to you is to look into different friction material for the pads.

Can you take a picture of how you attached the bracket for the throttle cable, since you relocated the throttlebody onto a pipe, inorder to clear the brake booster ?

This is awesome.

Have you plotted the 4 link options yet? Where do you have it set now?
