    What was your problem?

    I'm probably at the r&d level.
    I'm thinking it may not be a head as it continued leaking as it was parked. (Unless it was just built up in the under body panels)
    Also, coolant level was spot on.

    There's a good road nearby that's a two lane two way with a 200-300' median. Minimal traffic. No roads coming in from the side.

    I had a date with the guy.
    I had met him a week ago, we tried to run, but I had no traction. Now that I have et streets, we were making some hits, seeing at what mph we could start at. (About 50mph is the answer)

    We were actually on our way back in, and was texting him when he wanted to meet up...
    Had to have our passports ready for the trip to Mexico..........

    We were not logging. Was pretty confident the tune was dialed in. I'm pretty sure it's not tune related.

    We will find out here in a while. Will start tearing into it around 9-9:30am.

    Really was a stress test. I was out dogging on it. If it's gonna break, it's gonna break here, not in a race, not at the track.
    My track opens this Saturday. Hopefully we can make it.

    BTW: I can take the jokes, I think they are hilarious. I lmao. All part of the game, but I can dish it out to, so be ready. Lol

    (I'm a little scatter brained. At work, trying to get my thoughts out while trying to hear about my car.)

    I'm not blaming the tune, as I do think you are at R&D level and should be Data Logging. Lot's of questions can be answered.

    What kind of racing are you going to do at your track?

    What PSI are you running?

    20.8psi boost
    17psi in the tires.

    I'm just gonna run at the track on occasion. Test and tunes. This is supposed to be a street car.

    We had done a lot of logging with Tim to get the car dialed in.
    I'd say we logged 300 miles? Soft starts, cruising, medium pulls, decels, cold starts, hot starts, a few short bursts on the street.

    Then we logged all dyno pulls on a loaded dyno.

    The tune was spot on. Had a few degrees of knock retard right around 4K, but with cooler air, probably wouldn't have it.
    I'd prefer some knock retard from the sensors, rather than limiting spark and leaving some power on the table when the weather allows.
    It may have just been over sensitive sensors.

    I am happy with the tune, and am
    happy with Tim.
    I know I'm on the ragged edge of bolt ons. I didn't want to go over 1,000lbs/Tq, for fear of bending a rod.

    Maybe it will be just a blown gasket on your oil filter.
    Why test like that if you are 1/4 mile racing?
    Seems like you are giving a surge of boost all at once.

    Tim is a good friend of mine. :)

    Although that really sucks, if everything is OK from the block up and no head and SC damage, that will be a moral victory...

    Talking to Tim now.
    Really don't want the car down long.
    My goals are simple from here.
    1,000rwhp on fuel
    Don't break again (like this)
    Huge cam.
