There's no way we'll be leaving early Wednesday night. I have to close my store and stuff. I will have to go by my house no matter what. The earliest we could leave is gonna be late. Even if I took the dog with us or find somewhere for her to stay for 24hrs.

It depends how quick I can get done at work and do something about the dog. I figure we are shooting to arrive at 2j about when they open or a couple few hours earlier and then just crashing out in the van until Brock gets there

I can drive all night no problem. I do it all the time. I have driven to New York and back, straight, idk how many times. And I have driven straight here from Utah twice. All stopping only for gas.

missed rick to say goodbye

he is truly excited about his car

his was on the dyno making enormous power
[the entire time i was there. hours]
i will let him report

great stuff

the 2j wheels fit perfect and are beautiful
[but 5 bolt only, around 800 bucks]

brocks car has perfect fitment with them
and no flares
17x9 ,35mm et, 235/40/17 tires

joe had them on his b16 too
which looks good, imo

very busy shop

with his new staff

some very capable people

It was a fun day. Very tired now. I am sure Rick will post tomorrow. Need sleep. It was a hard drive homeowners no sleep.

Nice to meet you Barry. I'll get those parts to @The Mad Hungarian asap. I let him know I have them.

I really did like that mazdaspeed. Wish I had taken a rode in your car. And nobody got to take a ride in mine. Some other time hopefully.

Sounds like you guys had a great time!
@yogi b: Thanks for sending goodies my way Barry! I appreciate it!! You ever get up this way, come have some coffee!

@DaveSpecB15: Thanks again for bringing Barry's goodie box back with you! I'll get with you soon.

Trying to get the "Not A Donk" Caprice finished up so I can get it out of the garage and start getting the B15 ready to go back in. At least the car count in my back driveway is getting smaller.... :47:


Now back to our regularly scheduled programming...

It was a lot of fun getting to go out there all thanks to @DaveSpecB15. It was also great getting to meet and talk to @yogi b. He is a great guy and knows alot of good info. His car is really cool and quick for being 305whp.

The car did good on the dyno last run it decided it didn't like holding anything over wastegate boost because the line coming from my electronic boost controller came.off the top of the wastegate.

It made on 7.5-8psi 266whp and 257tq, on 12psi it made 321whp and 304tq, and on 15-16 psi it made about 370whp and close to the same tq. Joe did a really good Joe with the tune.

Damn pimp, those are some nice numbers. But you should not post your hp numbers before the nationwide call out....lol...

I do hope to atleast meet some of you peeps some day. Maybe when I win the lotto I'll have the time to have an East Coast 3 month travelling vacation.

They r useless until 3rd on 12psi and up. If they r good and warm they grip first on wastegate boost and man is that scary when u don't expect it. I'm pretty happy with my number for building it over 3 years ago and having 45k on my engine

damn
245s usless till 3rd

thats better traction than mine
i still have probs in 4th

i guess the 275s will be necessary

loved the sound your car made
the power too

at the same boost level you are pulling 75 hp on me

nice


mine goes in tomorrow
but for handling not power
joe says he can get it to go straight
at the drags

even at my much lower power level
if it will hook and go straight
i think this will set some fwd records at paradise
[stands at 8.50 with the vq]

yes vq went way faster elsewhere

but paradise at 1100 ft and slipppppppppppppery
is in it's own world

I bet when I put my 04-06 wheels I have on I'll have problems. I have new bridgestone s-04 in a 225/45/17. Don't want to keep taking life off my r888 since they r my autocross tires. I will tell u rho when I was leaving idk it it was the road or what but I was gripping first gear on my lowest boost setting. Now for some reason I don't
