Dakota RT crash
Many of you have already scene my first two videos of the Sniper RT. Well
many of you also wandered what happen to it and asked. I could only tell
you about it before. Well here are some pictures to show exactly how it
went down. This is a collage of the first two videos and new footage from
what happen to the Sniper RT.
Supra Dyno -Must see
Single turbo supra since 2003 finally
had it's day on the Dyno.
14psi no problem on the Dyno but after years of daily
driving one day 27psi was a little too much. Let alone car was at 12.9:1
air fuel unfornately didn't react fast enough and lift. Knock sensors
engaged at 5800rpms by 6200rpms timing was reduced by AEM from 12.5 degrees
(default) to 6 degrees which could be why the motor went or merely it was
safeguarding the already inevitable motor destruction.
