    Still have to find some drag slicks but I think Uncle said he had a line on a pair.
    how do you reckon a nos injector behind the throttle body would go supplying fuel under boost?

    washer bottle tank full of meth and a s/h efi pump, jaycar dc speed controller for the pump and just dial the fuel in for wot?

    you probably should ignore most of that and stick to being sensible lol.

    More shit gone that we don't need. Also gutted under the bonnet. Just the bumper frame and brackets must have been a lot.



    Ready for NAWWWZZZ



    If the NOS won't do the job, then this will be employed.

    This is REALLY funny.

    Forget the turbo though

    The more I look at these motors the better they are... and I really hate that.

    I can't get over how cheap chinese turbo stuff is. $400 for TK's T3 and 2 x$99 for wastegates would make a killer setup.

    So far to go fast all I have had to do is destroy a commodore. I think I'll enjoy this drag racing thing.
