More ebay 20g drag passes
Trolled by mother nature.
I thought plugging in my o2 sensor might make a difference. Scarily that's
not how things worked out. My fuel trims are all jacked up with or without
it. Airflow counts are down. I have more to do to this thing, but in an
effort to keep things real, I'm uploading what happened and what I found in
The PRIMARY reason for racing is development of both self and your
equipment. If your goal is to have an awesome street car, you can't
fully-achieve that goal without rigorous testing where numbers and facts
are clearly evident. You JUST CAN'T do that on the STREET. There are no
numbers on the street, no measurement of a baseline nor any improvements
you might make. There's no measurement of a drivers' skill outside of,
"did you win or didn't you?"
I didn't come to the track with the expectation of MY driving needing to be
improved. I was simply getting numbers, so I wasn't a tree-nazi like I was
in the Friday Night No-Lift-To-Shift video. There was more incentive for
me to just not red-light and see what she'll do.
This evening I didn't feel like the track crew were on their A-game.
Sometimes they held staged cars for an inordinately long period of time...
which once I'm staged, I'm on the rev limiter, and once they left me there
awaiting the tree for over 20 seconds, heating my car up and leaving me
disadvantaged out of the hole. Other times they treated the starting
lanes, dried off my opponent's side but not mine, not giving instruction to
hold or wait. In fact, one guy was signaling me forward while another crew
member was standing in front of my car spraying the lane. What do you
expect for only $15? I'm grateful for them, but the communication could
stand improvement over what I saw tonight.
Perhaps I'm just a bit miffed with my setup and looking for someone else to
blame? The track officials certainly don't deserve any for how it ran this
Friday Night No-Lift-To-Shift
Great "kills". Shelby GT500, Mustang GT, Camaro, Nova, WRX STi, Integra.
Getting used to a new way of driving.
I have successfully enabled the clutch cut feature in DSMlink, and just in
time for another Friday night to see what it will do for my time slips.
I'd say results are pretty conclusive that it shaves 0.4 seconds and adds 3
mph when used properly while other variables remain the same. You mash the
gas for the duration of the run from staging to the finish and after you
dump the clutch, each time you press the clutch, the ignition is limited to
your shift RPMs. Doing this leaves the throttle plate wide-open, and you
can maintain Boost between gears.
I can't describe it any other way than awesome. 2 videos from the prior
week cover the wiring for this modification.

Just a brief pull I did from 35-115mph.
I was bored and just made the vid for shits and giggles.
Yes I know its really shaky. Sorry my camera mount wasnt with me and
shifting/driving/recording = a pita.

Porting an eBay 20g turbocharger
The price of this turbo will make it a
popular purchase, so I figured I'd air out some tech about ways to improve
it. This thing is not for everybody. I wouldn't feel comfortable bolting
it on my car the way it comes out of the box. I could complain about its
flaws except that so far absolutely none of them have been a deal-breaker
for me. To me it's like an empty canvas. I promise to eat those words if
it happens, and share my poop. Usually I can easily correct these flaws
myself and so can you.
If this thing turns out to perform well with what I do to it... It could
easily be a cheap, quick ticket to an 11-second car. Something you could
do with a free running 1g, a hacksaw, and about $500 worth of fuel
upgrades. Yeah, that would be ridiculous, and I'm bolting it onto a
well-modified car... But that being possible speaks volumes for what a DSM
can really do.
This is no big deal to me. I'd rather guinea pig my car for you in HD so
you guys can decide whether or not you'd spend your money on this. Really
it's an experiment because this isn't my daily-driver, and it contributes
to building a better Colt.
Tools I used involve:
Milwaukee model ???? 1/4" straight-shaft electric DIY grinder
Cone and ball-shaped double-cut burs
180 grit high-speed flap wheel
Dremel with a flex-shaft and a tiny 320-grit flap wheel
a zip tie
10mm combination wrench
tiny flat-blade screwdriver (00) for the e-clip on the wastegate
Tom's Turbo Garage: Eagle Talon Test & Tune
Join me on Facebook! http://www.facebook.com/TomsturboGarage
In this episode, we take my 1991 Eagle Talon AWD turbo to Knoxville Dragstrip to do some shakedown
runs with the new turbo setup.
Knoxville Dragstrip is 890 feet above sea level. The air temperature
during these runs was 65 degrees and the Density Altitude was 1,814 feet
above sea level. For all three runs the Boost was set at 27 psi and a 50/50 mix of 93
octane pump gas and 110 octane race gas was used. The car's race weight
was approximately 3,390 pounds with driver.
The best time/MPH of the night was:
60 ft: 2.091

1997 Eagle Talon TSI AWD 16G Turbo 23 PSI Driving on the highway
My friend and I going for a drive in his 1997 AWD Eagle Talon with a turbo. He's running about 23 lbs of Boost making around 350+ WHP. You can hear
the waste gate open as he gets into the Boost. This engine was completely rebuilt by
the privious owner. Rear seats have been removed, as well as some of the
carpeting. A strut brace is where the seats once were. This car also
features Sparco bucket seats but no race harness :(. Exterior, mostly stock
except for a carbon fiber hood and matte black painted factory wheels. This
was filmed in Pittsburgh, PA on a GoPro Hero 3 Black Edition on 1080p
