Instant Diablo

Recommended Posts

I can't remember if I posted this, so stop me if you've heard it before...I didn't know it at the time, but the red pipe had fallen off the connector with the boost controller and hence, no wastegates. This pipe is in series with the boost guage, so the guage hardly moved at all....BUT THE POWER !!! Admittedly the road was wet, but wheelspin in all 5 gears up to 85mph?! It lasted a few days and then the pressure blew the Idle air control valve pipe off the high pressure duct and then we were back to a normally aspirated engine (and a whole load of hissing) Fortunately, I had Kevin's gearbox fitted at the time so I didn't snap the input shaft. Scared the crap out of the wife though!!
