Dyaaaaaaaaaamn!

You had me at Pretzels.

Fantastic writeup and time spent to share your thoughts. Thank you Randy. I like the way that they look in your console too. Clean and a good match!

Yup, I"m going to do the same thing with the tach. But I don't know how to do the tach so I gotta learn it first. hahaha.

I got the gauge figured out but the belt slippage bothers me. I ordered a tighter tensioner from Ted so I can keep the slippage away and run a bigger pulley to get the same boost.

NO way I should have only 8-9 pounds with a 2.8 inch pulley.

Only problem is I have to log it to make sure I know what the boost is before I can swap them. I need to know what is is after I swap.

SCT sucks every time I've ever tried it. Glitchy and there is a firmware AND software problem that they can't update unless they get my equipment or remote into my PC which I just don't like.

So I am ordering a better logger and data reader. One that actually shows boost so you don't have to do the math.

Were you having the same issues when you first did the install and tune?

I have a SCT Tuner if you need it...it is unmarried so it should be no problem.

I have an SCT. The program just keeps freezing up. It'll start to log and freez up. ON all of my laptops.

I got a system coming.

The car left Vengeance like this. 2.8 pulley creating 8-9 pounds of boost.

After looking at probably a hundred different cars and their numbers they are making the same boost with much bigger pulleys.

Not related but the car keeps dying and it's bothering me so I want to keep a log on it so I can see what's the problem.

Well I've figured it out...

Four things...

the gauges look great...
The snap is off on the seatbelt retainer for Bonnies seat... and would you care to explain the little leafy substance outside the windshield...Note the arrow...

And Lucas Oil wont let you run with a cracked windshield...

You had me laughing my ass off and then you made me stop in my tracks.

GOOD CATCH.

I totally forgot about the windshield.

Dammit. THAT would have sucked.

Ya, but the guy last year let me go because it was just the one pass. He almost didn't let me. I better have it swapped.
