Another great Veterans day get to gather.
« on: November 09, 2014, 08:45:23 AM »
Warm sunny southern California Vets day done gone by. We had a wonderful time at the ceremony yesterday as usual. Met at TinyTim's camp for a pancake breakfast and then on out to the Flag pole ceremony.  Wife and I unloaded the new car at Gordons Well and blasted up sand hwy.  New car rides like a dream and the new power on corn is astronomical.  John at OutFront tuned it out to the tune of somewhere south of 650 HP at the crank and 440 HP at the rear wheels.  Boost come's in below 1500 rpm and the car just rockits.   See if you can find my car in the pictures.

3.0 Small chain subi. All stock components.  Nothing has been done to the engine other then the t3/t4 turbo and electronic boost controler. Turbo is small for this engine so it will come in early.  If I went to a larger turbo I would get more power at a sacrifice of lower end response.  Sand HWY at 3000 rpm is 70 mph on the Lorance.

Mite think about that if and when this motor lay's down on me.  440 to the ground is a hand full.  don't know if I really need much more.   LMAO Sarcasm

Put windshield in for the run up sand hwy yesterday and the car ran hot.  Even acted like a heater, let the air blow all the engine heat around the seats into the passenger compartment. Took it out and left it in Tim's toy hauler for him to take home. i Will make a run down to okc to pick it up when I get the time.
