Yea Mark 8lbs was it and I was having problems with the mesh breathers and it was dumping oil on the headers so now I have that problem fixed. Will try and get it back on the dyno and do some pulls now the manual boost controler is working found out I had one of vac. lines on the waste gate on backwards.
Looking forward to race in March!!!

Thanks Curtis
Looking forward to going to a race in March in Sealy TX where I can tun the boost up and looking to run some low 9's. What is really great is the car is still a street car in the last 2 weeks put on over 350 miles and runs great on pump gas

Jerry, when will you be in Sealy? That's pretty close to where I am -- might be fun to come see you run.

Well it was'nt much but another best for the tiger. It keeps getting harder and harder but it went 9:46 @ 146 mph and I think we were on about 10-12lbs.
Car is still running good and could'nt be more happy with the turbo setup
