    Nice! How did you gain so much power between the two dyno runs? That torque is awesome!

    i have a profec b and went from 12.5 psi to 16psi, but as you can see we are still fighting some boost loss issues as the revs climb. we have narrowed it down to a few things but are confident that it is the vacuum canister the car was supposed to have stock but we said "lighter faster" but ended up needing it.

    That's damn impressive. So some of these 280z's came turboed, eh? I didn't know that. I also didn't know they could handle that much POWA!

    Sorry to hijack, but d@mn! Seems like everyone you know is working on 1000 whp cars. Why can't I have more friends like yours? If I'm ever in East Bay I'm going to have to look you up and take some rides with you and your buds.

    As for the 280 - very nice. I've always wanted to buy an inexpensive used car and make it a beast.

    lol, I just know these people through my website and events...I only know about 7 people who run single digits. Definitely let me know if you're coming down, especially near summertime, we can check out the local scene and see some VERY fast cars.

    That car looks like hideous.(no offense, i do realize your not going for looks)

    If i had it id say screw the track. Id go out in town and try to race everyone in sight. When they laugh thinking easy kill......they'd be took by the sleeper.

    Just another reason to not judge a book by its cover!
