I almost got him. I had a better reaction time so he had to come around me . His margin of victory was only 0.0193 !

getting it tuned was hoping to get in the 7's

website for this project's turbo build at www.saturnpioneer.webs.com I was finally able to get the car to the track for some runs. This was the first run. I'd not drag raced in over 10 years and it showed! Wheel spin in first and some in second in later runs plagued me but I'm working on that now with a dual Boost controller, the homemade type. I stated race gas I bought was 30 $ per gallon. I meant to say, 30 $ for 3 gallons. Its been so long that I'd forgotten how expensive that stuff was. I got some just to give an added buffer of timing protection. This first run netted 14.4 @ 99 mph. If I can get control of wheel spin, I'm sure it will be good for very low 14's with possibly a blip into the very high 13's. I made a total of 5 runs but the lines got so long, I gave up and figured next time I'd get there earlier. But, I'm happy at the performance for what I have into this project.
