thanks for the compliment. I can't wait to get it out again this year. Now I'm back to having a full time garage to park in so hopefully within a month I can have it near me again so I can drive it and do another upgrade. Right now the garage is still full of furnature and building materials as I yet again moved. I've moved way to often but hopefully I'll be here for a while.

Geoff, this thread is a continuous progress report on my car, it's not old.

How do you like your Bosch BOV? I need to find a good BOV for my TGP set up since the factory BOV wasn't meant to wire into the my current wiring harness...

It works great. Don't plan on running it over 10 psi though.

Just as an update, I DD it for a few months last summer, let my wife drive it for the first time, drag raced it, took it to Nitrofest, didn't make it in the calender, and now the driver front hub assembly is going bad.

When drag racing, I ran a little lean since my ethanol concentration was to high and had a head/crosswind resulting in a few 14.05's. Looking forward to trying to improve on the 13.9 this year.

Can't get in the Calender every year! This was the year of the quad with the calender it seems, 8 of them!!! Also, one 2.8, one 3.1, and two 3400's! No 3100's, that must be a first! Regardless, I love your car!!! It's sexy! But I am partial to red 94 Z26's, lol

13.835@101.32

Bought myself a set of slicks so now this car has a set of snow tires, a set of max performance summer tires, a pair of drag radials, and a pair of slicks

AND

That means we now have 3 pairs of slicks in our midwest crew. Beretta's may be getting older but they sure are getting faster :D

Awesome job Dustin on the new times.Car looks clean like it always does!!!
I talked a little with devon about slicks.He said you're running 20x8-14 M&T?
I found a set 22.0/8.0-15 #3019 M&T. Think this size would work well for me?
Thanks=)

Jon,
Have not used it yet. I ordered it and did not get it in time for me to have a chance to test it. I didn't want to hit the strip on a fresh tune and it was my last chance for the year. Don't worry though, I now have OBD 1, 1.5, and 2 tuners and plan to use them all. I have plenty of different injectors laying around as well including some 60#/hr's for a special project. I need to speak with you about building a transmission when we both get a chance. Don't worry, mine still hasn't missed a beat, just planning ahead.

Thank you DUBS and Rob.

Details on that run
11-20-12
750' DA
6.5 PSI
100 octane unleaded
very lightly spun from 0-5' and 10'-15'
very little to no wind
