Ya finally made time to do it ha. Been working turnarounds and have a 5 month old girl now so she takes most of mine time, but worth it.

Well went to the track today, and total failure. Three runs and no complete pass. First run did great burn out, launched car real good, went to shift to second gear and clutch wasnt having it haha (stock clutch) I couldnt get it in second and rev engine up pretty high so aborted run. Second pass, launched and had zero power! Looked and everything couldnt find anything wrong so I went for third pass, same thing no power. Got home and jacked car up to find a .25 cent part had ruined my day! A hose clamp on my procharger had broke causing the hose to blow off! NO BOOST NO GO! So I'm redo all my plumming and getting big T-bolt clamps to hold it together! Try again next time.

That's Cool.
It looked like you could have blown a hole in the wall, when it was on the dyno.

wowza....it's incredible to me that it hasn't gone boom. I'm @ 11 and 12 sometimes and I'm about to change my set up to reduce boost (and yes some power) but I cant stand the thought of blowing my motor at 11/12lbs.
