finished making the new dump pipe for the wastegate yesterday its the same as the old one just bigger piping. was quite tight getting it down between the 3 inch exhaust and the adaptor plate for the turbo350.took it out last night to do some testing but got a bit dodgy so will try again today if weather stays fine

got car back today made 422rwkw prety happy with that havent given it a good blast yet but cant wait. its got a few problems that the tuner picked up on so will look at those latter on.the converter is too loose and not locking up aswell as the ignition system needs some attention so up in the top end its a bit messy but ohwell all ready for powercruise now and the up coming drag season

Mate, that's massive. Got to be happy. My old mans RS4 made 355KW at all 4's and it was a handfull. A VL would be full on. Enjoy it, will look for you at the drags, although you would smash my rana. It really is a NZ weapon. Look forward to watching some VR4's fall behind you!

422kw is huge man, all that hard work seems worth it after all

just had bp 98 might try it on that gull force 10 and see what its like. was running 22psi but made the max power at 20psi.dont know how its gana go as the trans and diff ratios are all wrong it will be maxing out well before the end i reckon.

cheers guys for all the comments the goal has always been to run a 10 but im thinking more like an 11 its gana take a bit of time to get some good times down the quarter as theres a few things to sort out but ill get there eventually
