oy that coolant return is sketch! personally I would not of routed it that way and if i had too at least wrapped the exhaust with header wrap as well. But ive had a fair amount of bad experience with heat so I am probably being a bit over cautious

Which coolant return? The manifold is coated with Swaintech White Lightning which is one of the better coatings out there. The water lines going to the cabin are wrapped in DEI sleeves, as are the brake lines.

Yup, I'm going to try to make it up. Too bad it isn't this weekend, I'll be in Sinking Spring for the Duryea hill climb

I saw his car at tech inspection on Friday but I haven't seen him since. Is he still running?

Yea he's a really cool guy. He used to race Suzuki Swifts haha same rallycross type of driving. My friend Solomon who does the One Lap of America knows him too, we all live within 2 miles of each other. Let's meet up soon. I'm down even pre-tune, my map is OK for commuting and stuff, just goes to 10:1 AFR once the turbo starts to really spin, and when I go full throttle it sputters due to what I think is fuel overload, sounds like spark blowout but I can't imagine that happening at the boost levels I'm at now (<5psi)

I guess I should update this so the information is available for people in the future. The car made 270whp on 13psi, 300whp on 15psi, and 311whp and 285wtq on 17psi. I think the car was just hot after the repeated pulls, maybe I'll put it on another dyno in the future, maybe not.
