Recent dyno

Raised the boost to 23psi plus a 75shot (primarily for cooling and spooling!) and we're over 1500crank hp, 1244hp at the tire. We've always had a problem trying to keep the rpm sensor reading properly when we dyno my car so the torque reading spikes off the chart right after the nitrous fires then comes back in. If you plot a line from where it goes vertical across to where it starts tracking correctly you get the real idea. Looks to be around 1150-1200 torque at the wheel even with some tire spin. (Still haven't touched the direct port!)

The 75 shot is a little rich by design, on boost only the A/F ratio is spot on.

Just yesterday there were multiple posts after SGDM's #27. Including a notification that I got at 5:47pm that SSMKNU2 had posted a reply... Now at least 4 posts are gone...

Looks like they named a different car COTW, since yours has gotten it already maybe.

I just re-looked at the notifications and it DOES look like they gave me COTW again for Nov 4th 2013. And then apparently changed their minds...

Thats what I was saying, you had COTW for a day, then I think they realized your old build journal already got COTW.

The car has evolved since then, and it was pretty clear it had already been COTW a long time ago since it was still in the thread title... Heh! If it was a mistake and they as a group changed their minds and decided to recognize another car NO BIGGIE. If it was a unilateral change then I'd like to know why and by who.

Its been clarified by Tran. Can't get COTW more than once even as the car evolves over time.

No biggie, moving on!

Well it really says something about your build if you got it that early on a year or two ago.

IT, the post with the size and the place you purchased your front bumper rods from is gone?

You'll probably need to call them. I couldn't find the part online back when I got it and their site has changed significantly since then... This is info from my old invoice:

10mm Wind Splitter Rods w/Quick Release

www.mrt-direct.com
www.shopmrt.com

To each his, or her, own and all of us have different ideas about what makes a car 'special'... Her car is very nice though I would agree that its in a different class so to speak. Glad you like mine as I'm kinda partial to it myself.

Go to the homepage. Click on the COTW link. Your car is still linked (maybe missed?). Regardless of what happened, you car is absolutely freaking AWESOME.
FWIW, I saw your car at TCR and was floored...CLEAN. CLEAN CLEAN CLEAN. It's not often you see a build of this magnitude in this absolutely clean condition.
