  • My boost build thread

    Ive got a vortec kit going in hopefully soon, need to hang an engine hoist in my garage and i can get started. The car is basically an Autox only car so although it doesnt see a lot of road time, it gets beat on plenty. When i had it dyno'd it made 200 ft/lbs and 195 hp (dyno is low compared to most). In autox competition seasons ive taken one first, three seconds, and a third on the regional level, and one 2nd at divisional level in street modified. I plan on running SMF this season and hopefully making a run at nationals

    First the outside of the car.




    Street wheels are 18" strathmore, autox wheels are 16" rota grids, but the new wheels are saleen replicas 17x8" with 245/45/17 hoosiers

    I also have a visteon kit for it, but it doesnt get put on very often.

    Now the go fast goodies. Its a bit of a frankenstein, but im working on that

        cause a lot of people give me crap for the wing, oddly not so much for the graphics

        a SC is going in not a turbo, so when the stock 3L cams are trailing off, the boost will keep the power up for the longer courses for divisional and national events.

        Last year at the national in peru i was 4 sec behind the guy that ended up winning the national championship over a combined 2 days. I was on crappy tires and was having some brake issues so im hoping to catch him this year

          People are going to flame you for using the spline drive...

          However, are you going to make any modifications to the setup so it doesn't suffer the typical failure?

                  +1 on that. I think the cougar biting off the top of the cone is pretty sweet! .

                  Also I don't think the wing is that bad, especially since it's actually serving a purpose, not just for MaD jDm PoINtS Y00!!?! Plus the Saleen reps are a pretty nice setup. Do you know how much they weigh? Good luck on the build!

                    unfortunately they are 26 lbs each, would have liked to get lighter ones, but for the price i can deal with the little bit more weight

                      Oh wow 26 lbs? Well atleast they're 17x8 to fit the 245's better. How much did they cost? If you don't mind me asking.

                          Had the cars out of the garage to hang a chain hoist in the ceiling, so before i pulled the bullitt in i put on one of the new wheels to see if i would need to order new studs or not. pulled the wheel spacer off and luckily i dont. Everything cleared with lots of room now i just need to get the bullitt to a friends garage so i have some room to work.

                              the 245's dont work so well on a 7" rim so i had to go with the 8". i was looking at Hoosiers site and saw that 255's are the same price as 245's. might give those a try.

                              go the bullitt to another garage so i have room to work. starting the pull tonight, first time in my own garage
