    No, haven't had time to throw the built motor back in. Hopefully within the next 2 or 3 weeks.

    Funny how .02 is meaningful at a personal level.

    Congrats!

    it's the difference between
    "I have a 10 second car" vs "I have an 11 second car"

    For me the MPH improvement is what really matters. I mean the 11 sec timeslip is nice, but now I want more. Car should be deep 11's with that MPH.

    Funny, thats what my car ran at Luskville before the mods. 11.9@120mph. Not sure if I would be able to have gotten it deep into the 11's even though I figured with that MPH it would be.

    I was running at best 1.8 60', I should be able to get that down to 1.5-1.6. That should improve the quarter time a bit. Plus the no lifting to shift should also help. Can falls flat on its face going into 2nd. That's atleast 1 sec of spool up delay right there.

    We'll see.

    Yea i agree. I trapped 116mph and did a 12.3. Would be happy with high 11's.

    120mph maybe mid 11's? Regardless. Fucking fast car. What turbo are you running?

    Yea, my year Porsche is hard to launch and not known for drag racing so you may be right with all the little things you can do it may be possible for you.

    Sounds about right. When I spun the rod bearing in the RX7 it ran 11.0@130 which also matches with what we are seeing for times and traps.

    Way too big. Most people always go way to big on the turbo.
    Your car is not efficient at all...

    That said beautiful car, love that model, always have a sweet spot for DSMs.
    Owned many.

    Go to a GTX3076R and your car will be much quicked in the quarter mile and you'll have flow for over 600HP.
    Plenty to run 10 second 1/4 miles with great shifts and a great start.

    What happens with the DSMs is the damn 2nd gear synchro. Unless you have a dogbox or a Shep racing trans it will be very hard if not impossible to slam that gear in at full throttle at 8K rpm. You need a turbo that makes power between 4500-6000rpm or at least 5000-7000rpm. Even 7K is pushing it with stock style synchros...

    Also antilag or NLTS between all gears including 2nd is a must. Again, the big problem is 2nd gear synchro so a quick response turbo is extremely important for best runs.

    Right now your turbo size probably have a powerband in the 6K to 8K.


    p.s. congrats on the runs with that turbo. I know it takes a great driver to run 11s with such a peaky powerband in these cars.

    Thanks. The car has a built tranny and shifts at high rpm with ease. I just need to enable the nlts in the aem box and give'r another go. Also, the motor is a built 2.0 and should be able to handle 9k rpm. We'll see what happens... lol

    Great job Ali!

    Nice to hear you got the car figured out. What management system did you end up going with in the end? (DSMLink or AMS)

    Sounds like you definitely need to get that 60' down. I was pulling 1.6's with street tires with mine without the NLTS on. Maybe pick a day at luskville when they are running cars and spraying the track for more traction.

    Nice... Is that still the same car you had years ago? The one that was stopped by cops on our way back from shannonville? Like 10 years ago?
