New Install

Got my EGR block-off plates installed today. Wasn't quite the 45 minute install they said tho hahaha. That's ok tho. I needed something to do today. The hardest part for me was getting the holes to line up on the horizontal one and it took me forever to get the clamps all loosened up. But that's cuz I had a open 11mm wrench instead of a circle so I had to take it off everytime :/ took me around 4 hours to do complete install.

Yea, the proper tools go a long way! We use all air tools for the most part at the shop.

Haha that's the plan for now. Hopefully I can stick to the track and run faster than a freakin 14.01 like last time. The track here sucks...my first run two weeks ago I did it in 2x4 just to see...I did a burnout all the way through the 1/8th and 70 mph...maybe tonight will be better

Just got back from the track...I had a good night but it was about 85 degrees and humid so a real sucky night for racing. Plus the air and altitude always screws us bad up here anyway so it wasn't at all a good racing night. Anyway, to the goodies...

Ran 4 times, 4x4 launch (don't know what rpm and boost, too busy watching the lights) 14.1, 13.95, 13.85, 13.95. Wheel hoppin like a son of a gun off the line but it gets out there. Had a 11 second transam off the line but then he flew past me hahaha

13.85 slip

.2660 reaction
1.8319 60' time
8.75 1/8th mile @ 77.17 mph
13.8591 1/4 mile @ 95.73 mph

Next time I go it'll be 2 weeks. Hoping to have 2 proxes on, traction bars, and 310 tune :O cant wait
