    Finally got another motor in the shop car, and on the dyno Friday before we left for the event on Saturday. With a little tuning by none other than our favorite N54 tuning guru Justin @V8Bait the car laid down a more than impressive 847WHP/726WTQ with an astounding 601WTQ by 3000 RPM held to redline, and 700WTQ held flat from 3500-6500RPM. This power, and tq was made with ONLY 25.4 psi at peak power RPM. We also made 776WHP at 21.62 psi boost at peak power! This is a perfect example of why we continually tell people boost is simply measurement of restriction NOTHING else. Remove restriction, and power stays the same or goes up at the SAME boost pressure. This is our closed deck 9.5:1 compression motor, with fully built head, larger intake valves, Manley springs, TI retainers, etc. We are also running the EOS V2 manifold. Full specs below. We took the car out to Shift Sector yesterday, and ran a new N54 1/2 record of 170.49MPH using the 776WHP map with 3 degrees less timing, when we tried to turn up the boost to the 850WHP map, but the we believe something happened to the diff or alignment, the car was all over the track, and very dangerous to drive, so we could not get a full run in. Even with the car near uncontrollable we managed a 168MPH run. We belive the car would have been close to 175MPH with the 850WHP map in it, had we been able to complete a full pass. (Chris will be doing a full Shift Sector post) Breakdown of the car as it is right now: Closed deck 9.5:1 compression N54 short block, forged rods, forged pistons Fully Ported head with oversized intake valves, Manley springs, Ti Retainer, Stock cams VTT GC turbochargers Custom VTT inlets with 6" velocity stacks VTT Double Barrel HPFP system EOS V2 intake manifold with top PI ADE 1100WHP FMIC Custom triple Walbro LPFP set up with Radium Surge tank MHD tuner tuned by V8BAIT 100% E85 847WHP graph AEM Log Grab 776WHP graph AEM Log Grab Logs: AEM 847 Log http://www.datazap.me/u/vargasturbotech/vtt-gc-847whp?log=0&data=4-5&zoom=96-420 MHD 847 Log http://www.datazap.me/u/vargasturbotech/vtt-gc-847whp?log=1&data=3-23&zoom=39-90 AEM 776 Log http://www.datazap.me/u/vargasturbotech/vtt-gc-847whp?log=2&data=4-5&zoom=118-484

    They use fattier beef in the deli/meat department. If you are getting frozen, then they are probably loaded with MSG that makes you think they are tastier than they really are. I have heard the same with other friends. They just love Wendy's or McDonalds and can't seem to enjoy real beef. Wendy's for sure uses a ton of salt. I am always thirsty after having a quick lunch there. I use McCormick grill rub Applewood on burgers and steaks. The only thing I add to the steaks differently is brown sugar to the top when I throw it in the oven ( on cast iron) so that it creates a crispy top. I use broil on HI for about 2 min max, but I watch it with the light on until it bubbles. I recently tried to add in smoke flavor to a steak but it didn't transfer much. I think I might try with ground beef and fire up the grill soon.

    Not sure what this is in response to since you didn't use the quote feature of the board, but I'll give you the benefit of the doubt since you're new and give you some rep back so you can post.

    Your using 80% lean ground beef right? I almost always prefer homemade burgers vs at a restaurant. Nothing pisses me off more than an average $15 burger. $15 can buy you a ton of ground beef! I would ditch the bread crumbs and milk...and I agree more worchester sauce the better. I've diced up and thrown all sorts of random crap in my burgers and they usually come out good. A super easy recipe is just add lipton onion soup mix.

    Didnt spend too much time with the car this weekend so only got minor things done. I modified the coil wiring harness so that it exits out of the beauty cover instead of next to the downpipe. Was pretty simple, just opened the wiring cover, cut a groove directly opposite where the existing plug exit was and put it back together. Then just cut the beauty cover where it exits. Not the cleanest example, but should work well. I also wired up the wideband display i bought from george graves. All went smoothly and easily enough. I used the radio switched 12v, ground and illumination wires and the ground and 5v from the innovate lc-2 controller grounds. All works well however there is about a 0.1 to 0.2 AFR difference between the innovate gauge and this one; nothing major.

    - Finished building my new shift carrier. I'm not setup to weld aluminium unfortunately so a combination of JB weld, then fibreglass will hopefully be sufficient. Had to Bash it pretty hard when trying to get the bushes in and it's holding up easily - Found a place to mount my catch can. The mishimoto bracket slots into the space on the coolant reservoir with only minor mods - Welded a new flange to end of my downpipe so i can mate it to the rest of the exhaust - New tyres arrived for the ESM-002Rs. I went with Nankang NS2R semi-slicks in 205/45/16 for the front and 225/45/16 for the rears. Will get them mounted next week and see how the fitment is.

    Nothing major. Fitted the tialQ BOV. Also pulled my shift carrier out and starting another one from scratch as I didn't like the quality of the last one.

    In winter, having the right tires on your vehicle is more important than ever. Snow, salt, and harsh winter weather can ruin aluminum wheels. If you are looking for a way to preserve those high-dollar wheels in wintertime, snow wheels are the best choice. On a cautionary note front- or all-wheel drive is a much better choice for traction than rear-wheel drive
