ewainwright,

Using a digital readout, my car indicated 214mph on this rather long straight. It was pulling "strong" right up to the braking point. A longer straight and who knows, 220, maybe 225. Scary stuff. I...

Matt,

How much more boost can be used if, using the top rod, we put on another nut? Just kidding. Carillo's work fine, too. If, someone is going to use the 2.7 head, heat treatment is a good idea.

One blown head gasket. N/A 1983 Mazda 626. I am amazed that, considering the boost I run (seen 22+ on the 2.5L and 20 on 3.1L) that I've not lost one. These are not just peak hold #'s, or reading...

Even with MoTeC, the low and Med. boost settings deliver more boost as ambient drops. Little effect on high, as that pesky waste gate opens at programmed level. Med. and low work off a percentage of...
