No idea. Never been to a drag strip. I'm hesitant to go as I would need to drive her there, abuse her and then drive home. (No truck and trailer). Technically I could have someone time me while in the car I guess....?

Ya.. i didn't get a chance to try that out yet. That time of the year, by the time I get home traffic is horrible and it's almost dark. Hopefully this weekend I'll have time. I did decide there are some hacks I still want to do and things I want to repair..

- install the rad upper braided hose
- install the LED light switches
- level the spoiler and fix paint spots around the car


.... pic i took today...

Replaced the PS pump today. Straight forward and fixed the issue...

The old





Compare parts. In this case the outlet was smaller diameter. Meh..


Fini



& for Sonic! Just left the app running and did two pulls when no-one around on the road. Guess this is the best of them. Was spinning 1st and 2nd for sure, i was throttling it at high rpms, WOT in 3rd. I'm assuming it's semi-accurate..

Here's 3300rpm, 55mph, 4th gear, cruising.... @ 16.6+ A/F
Been lean & mean since I got it back. .....
Hey! this is the fuel change setting I was talking about.
You can see where all that red/yellow/orange area was with a positive
percentage number was indicating you needed a little bit of fuel in that
area. If you look towards the bottom right corner of the map you can see
negative percentage numbers, which means fuel could be pulled if you want.
Glad you guys figured out the lean issue on cruising.

Re-visiting this final engine bay modification, the upper braided rad hose. After 4 alterations..... what do you think?

Will cut it at the black line...


final product...



Slight grade..... enough?



If this will flow, and works. Then this will be the final product. But... will the two 90deg. cause a flow issue, not sure. Also I need to make a bracket that holds the line up off the lower rad hose.

djALBINI is cool... so far.
braided rad hoses look super clean!

Read about slipping tires on dyno...
PFIspeed uses spray adhesive AKA "dyno sauce"
This eliminates tire slippage on high HP vehicles even with smaller tires
Hope this helps some

Keep on keepin on

If I understand it correctly dyno sauce is pretty much hair spray. Makes the rollers and the tires stickier therefore less slippage. I'm not 100% sure though but the little bit I've looked into points in this direction.

Raf the radiator hoses look fantastic now! Glad you finally found an iteration that worked like it should.

I'm glad I randomly found a video of a very similar hose to give you the idea.

Thanks man!

I shortened the upper radiator hose. Going to give this some thought before I commit to it.

Ya, if it were not for you I may not be here with this rad hose.
So spoke to the tuner and some car folks I know, they all agree. May limit coolant flow a tiny bit but it should work. Only one way to tell......

I like the look. I'm probably missing a more important purpose but why 90's as opposed to 45's?

The hose would not bend anymore than this, so with 45's it was just not happening. Also the 45deg. ones I cannot find in this color or inside diameter.

I'm not really liking the look of it, but I'll at least see if it's functional.

Well it's functional at idle and if it works for a test drive then I'm calling this engine bay complete! I may add a turbo blanket in the future but not much else.

To think that I started working on this turbo build 9 years ago.... wow.

man that looks really great. you took your time but dang it turned out nice! I like that the plumbing is out of the way so you can see the smoothed bay.

looks like you figured out a good option for that upper radiator hose, too. everything fits nicely and looks so fresh!

youll want a turbo blanket once eventually the housing starts getting surface rusty...
