Could you just get an electronic boost controller to allow two stages of boost levels or a progressive boost increase?

That was my intentions to make people jump to the negative conclusions .........lol

I just having some fun with the board but beleive me I will get a electronic boost controller. But seriousily tires will only give me some gains but not near as much as third wants to do. But how crappy is this you have to wait till 85mph before you can apply the power. On the streets that is over the speed limit and the quarter mile is like the last 100 ft nah but of course the track are sticker too so maybe there I will get to use 15 psi and more.

I will make that my project to get grip even if the fenders have to be modified.

Hell Yeah. You should definitely do that. THat is the one area people have really neglected to improve on significantly.

I'm assuming Burrita that you already did the solid mount adjustment to the rear motor mount that Keith came up with? That helps tremendously, Kontofosho has it and gave it positive feedback. The next mod I was going to do if I kept my car was figure a way to triangulate the front end to stiffen it up. I also welded plates to the control arms which definately stiffened those up. How about sub frame connectors? Have you done those yet? 16 gauge rectangular steel is what I used. It definately stiffened up the frame. You just may need to stare at the front end for a while until you come up with something brilliant to put the power down.

I do have the solid motor mount that keith came up with I also have polys in front and teh wheel hop is gone. So I am not sure if two tires spinning would justify stiffening up in s atraight line. If only one did then maybe the flex would cause that. This morning when it was cold It did it so bad I left black marks at a 4K punch to redline and then I smelt rubber afterwards but it still pulled like a monster too. I will try to do fender add-on if possible first.

you could always try running on drag radials, you will have to keep the car out of the rain, but with your traction issues it sounds like you should do that anyway.

another option is to try finding a lower ratio final drive gear; not only will it help with traction, but the increased engine load will spool your turbo sooner.

I asked Terry set up my tranny that way. Even with Torsen I'm sure I'll have the same traction issues. Makes for a demmanding (and exciting) ride I'm sure.
