I've blown a hole threw my lower manifold. Still drove it from Jamex where the drag strip is to 137th and Wadell. Google to see how far that is in Surprise, AZ.

Car was gushing out coolant like a gaping neckwound.

glad to see you making your way around the site Jerry
Thanks. ^_^ They are street ported GT40P heads, Cobra Intake, TFS1 cam w/ stock 1.6 rockers.

I honestly hoped for the car to trap in the low 120's and was disappointed with every run this year. I had an exhaust leak pre-turbo so I was losing spool-time/boost there at the time; and was only toying with 9 pounds at the track; Through a restrictive muffler.

I have now fixed the exhaust leak, the car is on 12 psi, and I'm running a dynomax bullet.

Does it feel stronger now that you fixed the small problems?

Yes. Major difference in spool time, drivability, and just feels a lot more solid.
