1987 Iroc 5.7 TPI with T-70 single turbo, megasquirt, 6 psi cruising around with AC on

Having a little bit of fun with the turbo 5.7 Iroc. At the time of this video I've finished the 3" downpipe all the way to the cat (no more leaky Exhaust from the first video). I was testing some heat barrier tape today that I put on the AC system components. Seems to work well, nice cold air all day. I'm putting on a 3" cat back next week so it won't be as quiet in the future but it will be as quiet as I can make it (unfortunately a Flowmaster is on the 3" system but that will change to Magnaflow in the near future) and a Walbro pump and then it's off to the land of 12-15 psi! Just a teaser video from the outside at the end of the video. I didn't want to get in trouble driving crazy so I only took off once and it ended up being too far from the camera. It left black marks and didn't really get anywhere fast but it was fun. I'm working on getting some good outside footage soon. Probably when I get a little more Boost so it's more interesting to see & hear. See the build at http://www.mentalsocket.com/iroc87

Turbo TPI Iroc - Modded ZZ3 350 13 psi - First day at drag strip runs 7.71 at 92.2 mph on radials
Best run of the day and it was on a 1.84 60 foot, so easily could have ran a 7.5x on sticky tires. I was just about the only person on regular radials today. Soon I need to get a bigger turbo and it should open the doors to some low 7's. All in all I'm pretty pleased although I had expected my mph to be closer to 94-95. Engine is a ZZ3 crate motor modded to forged internals. See my other vids for more specs

1989 Corvette Z51 TPI 268 XFI Comp Cam, Magnaflow idle and holeshot
My dad's 1989 6 speed Corvette. It had a bent rod, so I rebuilt it with .030 over forged flat tops, eagle rods(5.7) and a balanced rotating assembly with the stock dual mass flywheel. I put in a Comp 268xfi cam, stainless roller rockers, hardened pushrods, and new GM roller lifters. The car had 60cc Edelbrock heads so I lightly ported them and an Edelbrock Hi Flow base, matched up the accel runners and ported the stock plenum. Bolted on a 52mm throttle body, 24lb/hr design 3 injectors and Hooker headers with a Magnaflow Exhaust. Ordered a custom chip from PCMforLess. It's plenty fast for my dad- for now. Maybe add some Nitrous and drag radials and drop into the 11's.
