    I know I didn’t want to but if I didn’t the carbon fiber hood would start fading out right above the manifold and the alternator was getting super hot. Believe me I hated doing it! I may get it ceramic coated like the turbine housing but I don’t think a black manifold would look any sexier.

        Yes sir. Drove it now two days in a row put about 60 miles on her. She feels solid. No leaks, a small exhaust leak at the vband to turbine housing but its super minimal. I need to purchase a new radiator fan, as my ECT is sitting around 204-206 when driving, would like to see that number closer to 180-190, only problem is I have to get a push fan that is slimmer then 3" or a small puller fan (no more then 7 inches) that can sit on the lower passenger side corner. I already have a thermostat that opens up at 170 and I can't run a full size radiator unless I tuck it. Which is an option I will look at in the future.

        When I do the 3rd gear WOT 2k-4k I hate letting off when it goes past 5psi, but right now we are just trying to smooth out the daily driving side. Hopefully next week we will get into the boosted side more and start cranking up the boost.

        I do have to get new tires in the front at the very least, these Cooper Extreme Contacts that came with the rims are garbage. So that will be the next investment. I am planning on running 225/50/R17 Pilot Sport 4s, not sure if anyone has used these or not, but they look like a solid tire.


        Here is the very short clip of 3rd WOT 2-4K up to 5psi (no clue how to embed it)

          Do you have a shroud, or any plans for one? That would greatly help to increase the ability for whatever slim fan you have to cool the radiator. It doesn't have to be much much than thin-gauge aluminum stood off just a bit from the fins with hole(s) for the fan(s) cut out. That's all that Sheepy, Chase Bays and SpeedFactory do.

            I have yet to ride in any boosted CB7. Hmmm.

            5 lbs you say. I'm curious to know what one feels like in comparison to H22 swapped CB7.

              I donít have one yet but I plan to make one. The fan sits between the intercooler and radiator. There is only about half an inch between the fan and the intercooler. I know this is probably starving the fan of air, but itís the only place I can mount it currently.

              I love the feeling of when boost comes on. 5lbs isnít much and thatís where we are limiting it until we get the daily driving habits down first. Once that is done I am shooting for 18-21psi for track days and 14-16 on cruising around days. If you ever in the panhandle hit me up and Iíll take ya for a spin. Just be forewarned the boost bug is each to catch especially with the tq it produces.

                On the datalog run today decided to snap a quick pic of the cb out of the garage. You can only look at an engine bay so many times. It needs a lip, but there isn't enough meat at the bottom of the bumper to mount the lip. So I will have to try and figure something out.

                  I'm real glad you were able to narrow down the idle issue to the RPMs. I remember not being able to idle below 900rpm, especially when the engine was cold, with the Bisi lvl 2 cam in the F22.

                  Enjoy the whole tuning process!

                      Yes! The car is like me, it doesn't like to do much of anything until it gets coffee in it and is nice and warmed up. I don't drive it until the fan kicks on, if I don't it runs crappy.

                      Hell ya! You got it Paul, it wont be super hot by then so you don't have to suffer in the Florida heat without A/C. Hopefully nothing breaks by then "fingers crossed"

                            Lol! Oh my meat is still there. But the bumper meat had to be shaved off on the bottom to clear the intercooler.

                              So I think I figured out my overheating issue today. When I went to burp the coolant system, my coolant was spewing out like water when its boiling. So I thought maybe I overfilled it. Took a baster and took some fluid and it seemed to stop. Anyways long story short. I checked the temp of both hoses and the top hose was piping hot while the bottom hose slightly warm. I was pretty much able to keep my hand on it the whole time. So pretty much led me to believe my aftermarket thermostat is stuck closed.

                              So today I ordered a new OEM one which should get here on Friday. I will replace this and hopefully see my ECT stay below 200. Fingers Crossed.

                              If not we will proceed to the next step which will most likely be a new radiator.

                                To mount a lip, you could try to reinforce the mounting surface of the lip with a piece of sheet metal to span the area under the intercooler. I had a fiberglas lip/air dam on my 1982 Citation X11 - I hit a rabbit at 80 mph and he punched a hole right through it. I repaired it and reinforced the lower edge of the lip with an aluminum strip about 3/4 inch wide and about 1/16 thick.
