I like that Engine a lot!
Yes I do think it is time to drop in to a car, get it mapped and drive! Go for it.

i drove the car on the street today
it went verry good
brakes are super and engine run just fine
got also better boost reaction now
shifting is verry smooth an feels good under power
the stal speed is still a little on the low side
so no hard launches yet
only it is stil spitting oil in the canister
when under boost
i know the engine oil level is to high
cant get a good reading as the oil is clear
i think i have to find a better way to vent
need some advise on that.
 im happy
ready for this season

Hello guys i want to share this with you

a few days ago me and my cousinsin were cruising around to do some tuning with a laptop
and after a while the batery of the laptop was empt
and we decided to go back home i said we go via the highway.
as i turned on the highway and i did like 100 kmh  i saw a car fast coming in the rear mirror
i sayd to vince look there is a tesla coming our way.
he looked over his shoulder and said no henri that is a maserati !!!
i keep looking in to the mirror as the car war like 100 meter behind me i gentle put down the pedal to the floor
an now the fun begins
as the car noticed that i was accelarating he had to push the pedal to to overtake me
for a few second he tough that was the case
when he was next to me the bug went in to boost mode i saw him looking at me and smiling i looked at him to and had a much bigger smile
as the moment came that i went to 0.8 bar boost my car pulled like crazy i mean crazy !!!!!
away from the brand new maserati gihibli there was no way he could overtake me
not even a chance i kept my eyes on the miior and it was like he was going in reverse on the highway!!!!!
he went verry small in the mirror
as i went of the throttle and let the car roll out he passed me and his wife was almost glued to the sidewindow
and the expression on her face was really odd!
like unbilieve or like what happened now!
and she kept looking at us but we went into cruisemode again
me and vince started to laugh verry loud and doing high fives in the car
and looking at echother  asking
dude did this realy happend Huh?
yes it did
it so much fun to drive the car
race day is in 2 weeks now
i am going to take it easy but it has some potential now
i got this car for 18 years now but it never had this much torque \
pitty i did not filmed it

Love the story!  I can share several like it even though it is many years ago my last one.
The favorite is  the 18-19 year old guy with a nice blond girl that was giving me thumbs up after I passed him in (his dads I guess) very new hot 911 for the third time.
Speed was far too high to brag about but to be honest. It is crazy and stupid but I know exactly the feeling.
Then during my years in Ferrari land Modena with my 2,7 automatic 1967 beetle , I had several acceleration encounters that surprised many Italian cars. :-)
Enjoy and congratulations!

Great story Henri and soooo good to read that the car drives so well now!

so i went to drachten last week to race the bug
i went on friday 14.2
with a lot of wheelspin and hit the rev limiter on the shifts
on saterday i was getting the hang of it
i could do some good passes
best time was 13.2 at 167 km and a 1.8 60 ft
as i did this run i boosted to o.4 on the brake
the car pulled the frontwheels and did a good pass
it feld good on topspeed and the brakes are working good to
the nex run i decided to turn it up a little more
so 0.6 boost at the line and put some more rpm in it
i was staged an as soon i left the brake my axle snapt off
it was to much torque
so there went my 12 run ...
i  had no spare axle as the are custom build
i decided to go bbq and get some cold ones
after a while i got an idea
there was a guy tyat race a golf vr6 turbo
and i asked him if he had some spare axles with him
and yes he did
i met some other guy who lives near the track
and had a workshop at home
so we took it there
and after a few oures later and welding and turning on the lathe
i had the axle fixed..
the next morning i put it on the car
and whent to the start
i could do 2 things
on try to run the 12
2nd to try to win the street class
i did the 2nd as i wanted to drive test the car
i startet quite slow on a 13.8 but won the race
next i had a by run
then i won again on a 13.4
an then i had a by run again
so i was in the semi finals
the car next to me was a 1967 dodge dart with a 6.0 hemi srt in it
connect to a supra 5 speed
i decided to go for it
as i drove over the waterbox i did one verry smal 2nd turt burn out
and went right in the lights
as my oponent was stil doing his burn out
i was already building boost at the transbrake
he went in the lights but i was ready for him
as soon it was green and we left off
he was faster at the line but as soon as i hit 3rd
i was catching him but i was out of track
by a half car length
but he went to fast 12.97
so the bug took the win and i was in the finals
but when me and the honda line up for the finals
it started to rain and so the race was over
i went home with 2nd price and a big smile
i only drove at 0.7 bar boost as the spring is on its limit
if i have stronger axles and can run more boost
i wil go much faster
i did not open the decklid once
it drives and shifts like a charm
can do it all weekend long
i had a blast
i learned a lot and the car feels real good at high speed
so next time maby hit the 12s

Yeah how do you have it setup suspension wise.
Mine is very dodgy above 75-80mph

ok
i run irs on the back and stock in the front
i have no engine forks annymore
the whole drivetrain is connected to the
rolcage
and i got quite a heavy car
i think it goes over 1000 kg
its not so ligth in the front also
just a good weight balance i think
it has no fancy parts at all
just good stock ones
but i am happy with it

Big Congratulations on hitting the 12s at DASDragDay15 @ phoenix drag way!
If I remember correctly it was a 12.3sec, very cool!
Run was soooo smooth, if you work further on the 60ft time the 11 is near  Grin enjoy the sucess.
Best greetings,
Felix
