Default Current Dyno number...for now

Well my first run on the Dyno, with all he new stuff went ok. I put down 501rwhp at 12psi. No timing and no water meth yet. I blew the discharge tube off the sc so now I need to bead roll or put weld needs on the ends of the piping and go back and try again. I have a question for the sc guys though. I was under the impression belt slip was a flattening of the boost but what's happening now is the boost gauge around 10-11 psi starts to shake and won't go above 12, so I'm thinking I'm having belt slip, because I think it should be making 16-18 I would have thought. In anycase so without fixing the boost build issue I won't make 600rwhp. But I think 550 is going to be pretty easy

What do you mean uber? Like spark blow out? At just over 10 psi? I'm gapped at .030 right now running weapon x cops. The car pulls fine the boost just kinda wigs...I can send you a few vids if you want of the boost gauge. The first time to 9 psi the cAr pulls hard. The last vid that made 501 before it blew the pipe off went slower to 9 and had issues over 10. Slip just made sense, I mean the sc should make power to 7 if it stops building boost at 6400 I would think that indicates a belt issue. But honestly my tuner didn't get around to noticing it I only did because I spent all night reviewing the videos and looking at the sheet

I'm not unhappy with the numbers since I'm sure there's a bit left in timing and water meth. But it was designed to make 600. So there will always be a part of me that's sad it didn't hit 600 after so much money. What's your new build? Wait lemme guess turbo?

I don't know about that man. Cars been a weekend warrior for 3 years...and I've put less than 5k on it because it's had so many issues. 2 engines 3 clutches tranny out probably 6 times maybe more. So far 6 trips to the Dyno all at a new cost every time. And 10s if not hundreds or diag hours at a friends shop tracking down issues. And my last set up lasted 2 or 3 days before I blew the motor.

I win. Motor went **** up tonight. No idea what happened still seems to have oil pressure but it must have dropped at some point because I have what sounds to be a massive rod know. I'm done with this car. If anyone see stuff they want to buy let me know.
