    Nice! Looks like you got it dialed in quite well! Now tell your videographer to rotate their phone 90! haha.

    I'm lucky he could find the record button or he didn't have his finger over the lens

    So far that's the plan. I want to get my new engine in the car and start on turbo fab work. I still need to buy wastegates, intercooler, fuel system, and some other odds a ends. I'd like to say it will be done by spring, but knowing how projects go, it's doubtful lol.

    What are your plans for the old set-up? You got it dialed in just in time to rip it out, lol.

    I'm guessing no time to work on the 88 then?

    Yup, although that's been the plan all along. A few years ago when I put together the drivetrain, electronics, and chassis, I had plans for a bigger engine. I did things in phases so I could at least drive the car a bit before building the new engine.

    I'm not sure what I'm going to do with the 308. I may use the heads and intake for my '88 and sell the shortblock, or possibly use the shortblock, but put larger combustion chamber heads on it to bring the compression down to make it street friendly. I'd consider selling it intake to oil pan, but I can't imagine there are many people who would want a stock block with several nitrous passes on it

    I'm working on the two side by side. When I get frustrated by one car or am waiting on parts for one, I move over to the other.
