Nitrous fogger nozzle installed, 41N 18F
Throttle cable somewhat figured out. I do not like the angle of the cable, but its functional for now.

Boost leak testing done today. Found a major leak on the hotside charge pipe right at the intercooler. I never checked for leaks last year when I put the stock intercooler back in so I'm guessing it has leaked since then. Leak also at the fuel side flare on the fogger nozzle. And one other bad clamp.
Ready for June 8th. Praying that I don't get rained out again.

Took it to the track Friday night. Kept blowing off the charge pipe. Didn't get a clean pass. Also found out the throttle spring is way too stiff for drag racing. Ran 12.6's with no boost and nitrous only lol

i saw the pic of the pipe that kept blowing off was coming off an elbow that was just smooth at the end. if it were mine, i would scuff it with rough sand paper and then "flange it" a bit with a pliers.. or stick a couple sheet metal screws in it... or both

12.6 with no turbo. LMAO hope to see a new record best in your future with your upgraded intake.



when the pipe popped off, did you immediately think the JB weld failed?

can you wind the TB spring tighter and eliminate the one you added?

I ended up eliminating one of the connections. Used goop as well for adhesive. The worst part now is the heat from the turbo radiating up to the charge piping and couplers. I may have to make an aluminum heat shield under the piping. Good to know about the throttle body spring. I'm thinking it may be the angle of the cable that's messing up full closure without the help of an external spring. I put a softer on in and it seems way better now. But won't knowuntil rolling into the beams in boost

Blew the ghetto intake apart on the second run.
Noticed weather cracked on the piece I used from the stock soft charge pipe too
