      I'll have to work on the measuring back pressure.
      I will have an issue with dpfe and turbo.

      I understand that if your really doing well, pressure is 1:1. That would mean in a perfect world I'd have 8lbs back pressure at 8lbs boost. I'm pretty confident I'm not going to be 1:1. lol.

      Thanks for reminding me on the crimp connectors. Yes, I used them. Proof of concept. I need to order weather pack connector(s). My plan is to solder in to the coil wires and power, and add a weather pack connector.

      I haven't hooked up the vacuum yet. I'll try to get that done tonight.
      Driving to work this morning, I may have to do some work with the shift schedule. Looks like a bit of 'lugging' going on. Needs to shift out of 3rd, and unlock the tc faster.

      Motor's still running strong. No leaks, no bad noises. WTF? lol.
      I wen't to our annual Country Fest, so its about a 7 hour round trip. Slept in the back of the old girl again, and its actually pretty comfortable with memory foam. The 2 for 1 Canadian beer might have had something to do with that though.

      Strange thing is, I had a really stinky exhaust that would always come thru the windows and sun roof when open. Windows and roof closed, no smell. That's no fun at all though. After the trip, its virtually gone. I wonder if something was just slowly burning off. I'm super happy that I don't have any smells (I was also fighting the cheap wire loom and electrical tape melting and stinking, and thats all been removed now).

      Boost creep is fixed. Solid 6-7 lbs boost that comes on quick. Punching the peddle at about 50mph is an eye opener.

      After a pass I did today, the guy caught up to me and asked me to do it again while he video'd it with his phone. He said he's never seen or heard anything like it and really wanted his friends to see it. I'd say that's a compliment.

      My timing is kinda low up top so I can't even think about adding boost till I install my water/meth kit. 91 octane isn't the best for this stuff. I'm not sure when I'll get at it, since the weekends are pretty full now. I'll try to pick at it, bit by bit.

      Its sure nice to finally be having some fun with my truck rather than fighting serious issues all the time.
