Pm me with why you think it needs balancing and what you figure it's worth.

What was the deal with the street pic? You get a ticket for excessive smoke?

It was a red light camera in St. Albert. Caught doing 76 in a 60 zone. I thought it was going red so I stepped on it. I really liked the picture they took

That's what I thought when I saw the picture

I agree with you whole heartedly. I actually took that picture immediately after opening the letter

Anyone know where I could get a good adjustable external wastegate?

He is kinda local to me. I have the BOV. Nice pieces.
If I ever run an e-gate, I'll buy his.

Those look cool. Do you happen to know their actual opening pressures?

Nice project!

Have you had it on a dyno to see where you are at?

It sat on a dyno for like 15 minutes, but was sucking so much air into the fuel system it couldn't get a proper run in

Got my flanges, and piping to do my compounds. Just need to get a bit more steel and I can start fabricating

So here's where The Roo Hunter has been sitting all winter
Image

This afternoon I grabbed a couple of shovels, and dug her a path so I could pull her into the shop. Once there I pulled my turbo and downpipe, then noticed just how much rust had formed on my steed speed.
Image

then off came the manifold
Image

I decided to media blast my manifold, so into the cabinet it went (I didn't take a picture of it after because it isn't all blasted (my cabinet is really lame and requires way more effort than I was willing to expend))
So I stuffed the manifold back on upside down, tried and failed to get the short studs off, so I tossed my s480 in there, threw my spacer on, followed by my s300. since one of my studs went in wrong initially it's long enough that I could put a nut on even with the spacer, and cinch it down
Image
See. The steed speed is all silvery rather than the standard black. Then I grabbed some of the piping I got last week and got to work figuring out how to route it. 3 cuts later, and voila
Image

And that's where I stopped for the night. I'll try to get the steel for my hotpipe tomorrow and get a start on that

Good progress. I've been mulling over thoughts of my next compound build.

so a bunch of goodies showed up today. First and foremost my 400gph waterman lift pump came in 8)

Image

along with my universal fuel filter setup (with 1/2" fittings :thumright: )

Image

that'll be going on pretty quick so I can try to get the old girl to fire up. then I checked the mail on the way home, and my manifold studs had come in :D

Image

those are also going on right away. unfortunately I can't use one of them because I stripped the threads on of one of the holes in the head so it's a bigger size than the studs, but it won't matter after I get the new head (whenever that is) also the steel for my hotpipe isn't here yet so I'm stuck where I am on that front
