  • July 12 2018, 10:34:06 PM TexasT: [link] if the turbo buick venders could figure out how to harness the detonation we would have something
  • July 13 2018, 08:30:34 AM Steve Wood: If Archimedes had a place to stand, he wold have moved the world...
  • July 13 2018, 09:18:06 AM TexasT: he would need a lever big enough also
  • July 13 2018, 06:11:42 PM Tcorgn6: Special thanks to Tyler at www.boostedrps .com for coming over to my house anf tuning my car. I didnt realize how much power i was leaving on the table. Check out Tylers web site, he has great stuff for our TR's
  • July 13 2018, 06:44:45 PM Scoobum: You've finished your change your valve springs.
  • July 13 2018, 09:49:33 PM Scoobum: Tom...slide down to the bottom and Eric explains it...[link]
  • July 13 2018, 10:01:02 PM Tcorgn6: Hey Brad !!! THX !!!!! Great stuff ... I’m going to be back at it in the morning!!! Again thank you
  • July 13 2018, 10:06:53 PM Tcorgn6: Brad, the valve springs are coming next week.
  • July 13 2018, 10:17:22 PM Scoobum: Bump the low gear timing off Erics default of 128 to 129.
  • July 13 2018, 10:59:41 PM BoostedRPS: We took some timing out of the low gear. It was originally at 7 degrees added, and we changed it to 3.15 degrees added
  • July 13 2018, 11:03:08 PM Scoobum: How'd it get that high?
  • July 13 2018, 11:56:47 PM Tcorgn6: Not too sure, Tyler and I discovered the high numbers. Remains a mystery to me.
  • July 14 2018, 12:12:02 AM Scoobum: Make sure high gear timing is on Erics default. Boost trumps timing.
  • July 14 2018, 12:25:24 AM BoostedRPS: We made our own adjustments from what the baseline was. At 3rd and 4th WOT we took out 2.8 degrees from baseline. At 1st and 2nd WOT there is 3.15 degrees added above baseline (setting of 137). For AFR 1st and 2nd was set to 10.8, I we changed it to 11.5 with 3rd and 4th set at 10.8 and we changed it to 11.2
  • July 14 2018, 12:28:07 AM BoostedRPS: I didn't want to go any leaner on the AFR at the moment because the car ran great, and if we make it any faster we are playing with fire on that stock 2004R...if we run that turbo in its' sweet spot, and get leaner on the AFR we will definitely be pulling a blown tranny out of his car, which we do NOT want to do right now...
  • July 14 2018, 12:36:41 AM Scoobum: I have more money in this transmission than I car to admit. I'll give Tom a list of the hard/billet parts I have in it. You have someone there to handle the build?
  • July 14 2018, 12:58:21 AM BoostedRPS: No one that I would trust locally. I was going to have him ship it to Janis, actually. I know my buddy Chris Marin has built some trannys, but I don't know how many he has done, and I wouldn't but my name/reputation on someone's work that I haven't personally seen. Chris does great head porting and other work, but trannys are a beast of their own. I know Tom has a local buddy that helped him swap the converter, but I don't know if the builds trannys...I'll ask around, but I haven't heard of anyone good with 2004r's in the area since Bruce Toelle
  • July 14 2018, 06:28:51 PM Scoobum: Tyler...that's real nice turbo porn!
  • Today at 12:20:01 PM Scoobum: My stock junk POS Buick is up and running like a top. Quick thanks to Dan and to Joe at JB Racing Engines and Heads
  • Today at 12:31:56 PM Tcorgn6: Awesome to hear Brad, post up the videos! Will be on the look out !!! Congrats
  • Today at 12:38:33 PM Scoobum: If any locals have a pair of front GTA rims...PM me. Any esn't matter. TIA.
