Yeh just trying a few things out, currently its got a .84 housing on it, im going to try a 1.00 and see what that does.

its def lost a bit since iv put the glide in cos in 2008 the car went 10.58 and lifted the head the car has more power now and still went slower but at least its stronger i guess

Im not in a massive rush my new house is more important but ill just do stuff when iv got time. Pretty impressive considering that bottom end is 10 years old never been refreshed lol stock rods too!

it shouldnt go slower with the glide though, sounds like converter and gears need tweaking to me

yeh the convertor's already been out once, might have to come out again.

Its hard to judge cos i havnt raced it back to back with the old auto compaired to the glide. anyway time will tell, no rush just when ever its done ill slap it on the dyno and see wot it makes.

It only did a 1.59 60 footer too the best its done is 1.49 so its a fair bit off on the 60 footer

Aahh yeah i see that is a pretty small rear wheel for a t51r isnt it? Did you try the .84 so it would be a little more streetable. Hahaha yes yes im in a similar situation aswell with a 3 yrd old an another on the way, except im trying to hurry up an get it done my ****ter has been off the road for 3 yrs now ,, make sure u let us know when you take it back out i havent seen it run for like 2 yrs

.84 is very streetable, comes up on boost really fast/hard! but when we pushed it to 25psi it started compressor surging on wide open throttle. ill see wot the 1.00 does, hopefully the surge goes away!

Yeh I take it out from time to time but stay well away from any hot spots, ur just asking for trouble then! so normally i just cruise with mates to somewhere away from the highway...

Should have put a Gt4294 or similiar 70mm turbo(precision) on it. The 76mm is
overkill unless you run at least 35psi. and probally slower for the application you want it for. Not the first
time i have heard them surge around that boost level either, worse with small cam and a motor built for more low down (6500 peak ) and not revs.(8 ish)
Hope you sort it
cheers

when its got a good bottom end, if it doesnt see 35psi i wont be happy lol

I rev it to 7k atm obviuosly will be a lot more on a new motor and the car has a wade 818 cam, so few changes need to be made its far from finished...
