My rear turbo blew on the dyno after a 490ish whp pull with a wastegate mod, stock turbos, no meth and 102 octane. Wastegate mod has been on for at least a year but i pushed it to far.
I wont push these turbos to much on hp. As its plenty of hp but it will increase the torque alot so im not sure how much the transmission will like it. But oh well. It goes i have a PP transmission sourced out already as id rather have the higher final drive

Just got done installing the Anthony Dicunzolo Caitlyn Jenner mounts. They're a little harsh but definitely help the 2-3 shift in the 3 mile test spin I just took the car on.
Don't worry they soften up after a few hundred miles can become almost unnoticeable.

Hahahahahaha. It’s funny how things work in the end. The Jenner mounts will just continue to pay dividends as you build power.

This site is so much easier, just click US Tracks at top, then scroll to your state and look for the track you are at. It gives you current DA, will give you forecast for upcoming DA and you can go back and look at any past day DA on each hour of day.

That is awesome! Thanks for posting!

Finished up the 2010-2012 Taurus SHO Duraflex side skirt install and took several pictures of the Schwartz Engineered Performance R&D car.

We're gonna need a pitchfork soon because the piles of bull sh it you leave laying around here are really starting to get out of control and stink up the place.

Finally after 4 months of waiting... Quick question, should I exhaust wrap these to maintain heat?

It probably wouldn't hurt. Although you should let me test them for you to see if they work all right. LOL

Its turbocharged. Wrap and (example)x pipes will have no affect like they do on n/a.
They run next to the ptu, you should rather have the heat stay away.

Nice! That’s a big piece of the puzzle!

if I could go back i would probably have the downpipes coated by Jet-Hot. I think the coatings are supposed to lower temps significantly.

Me too, but I was way too excited to get them on, so I skipped it. :shrug:
