    Apart from not being able to get it out of the hole faster than granny driving her camry away from the lights the car went well. 4th pass 8.95 @ 152.

    First pass was abit hairy, the chute didnt deploy and get tangled in the bars, you run out of road down the deep end very fast at 150 mph.

    Had a few issues, setup problems etc that weve been ironing out. Im also starting on a iron block for this thing.

    Last time i went to sydney we ran a 8.71@160 and a few mid 6 passes at Gunnedah. Im planning on racing the T&T in sydney on the 29th, see if i can get that 160mph to reflect in the ET correctly.

    Current car weight is just over 2600 lb.

    Went to the track championships on saturday, same tune as the 8.71 pass, a more aggressive 2 step setup, some chassis changes, and some new tyres.

    Bitch is fast. Like properly fast. 8.67@157, 8.55@159, 8.55@159. I got knocked out first round on a -0.013 red light, but you get that on the big jobs!

    Australias fastest SBE LS, and we still have no power in it. I am going to modified live on sat night to race in the Grudge Kings shootout, Im making a small bar adjustment(preload), and more power. See where we end up!

One turbo should be sufficient amd simple to setup. Just going to have to make some headers, exhaust can go up and out the bonnet again.
    Any more details on this?

    I bet you miss the SR

    Awesome results, well done!

    Do not miss the SR at all, i dont have to worry about it on the start line, i know it will leave, i dont have to wait forever for boost to come up on the step, it just works.

    8.47@160, not much seemed to change, still picks and carries the front left, but doesnt try to drive me into the wall anymore. Which is pretty mint.

    Went out to the test and tune, all 3 passes were 8.43@161.

    Car is trying to drive to the right again, so need to invest some time there, but we will work it out.
