The car then ran fine and they got some good dyno runs in.

They got the correct hoses at the parts store and have put them on and he's good to go.

GTA said they took videos and will be sure to come in here to make a more detailed post with more info and video later this evening.

That is all!


(Legal disclamer: I did my best to accurately convey the info GTA gave me. Any inaccuracies are totally my fault!)
that's pretty doggone close

turns out it wasn't that the fact that the hoses collapsed; it was that they didn't seal properly, thus creating vacuum leaks.
they went under & tightened up all the exhaust joints just as a precaution.

now we don't know for sure if the exhaust actually had anything to do with it...

well the tune wasn't all that great either - considering the headers & crazy-big intake

After reading a few more posts it's not only stiffer less likely to collapse but seals better too.

Holy crap. I can't believe I never posted last night. I typed up a big giant long post, and when I clicked submit, it froze up and I lost it all.

I then posted a simple explanation and the video, but I messeed up the embed AND posted it in Chris's name.

So, this morning we have to take the u-haul back and grab a bite....................... and drive...

I'll give a detailed account of it all in a bit but for now here's the video.

Numbers are lower than expected but the wheels are losing me about 25 HP. Good thing is that my wheels are accounted fo in our race. My crutch is that I'm about 80 hp down to GTA.

A leaky break booster hose was the culprit. No real way to tell. It didn't collapse til it had been running for 15 minutes or so when the hose heated up. The collapsing wasn't the problem, but it was allowing a seal to get in.

That was not the entire problem because in all of my troubleshooting, I played with it. But the car ran bettr enough to drive, I just didn't know it because still sounded similar and still smoked a bit.

Anyway, here's the video. Sorry bout the delay.

Hey PQ,

I'm just glad it's running and I can only imagine the relief you are feeling...

Good On You for tackling that on your own...
