It feels great. I've been wanting to do this swap for a long time. It wasn't until recently that we had the skills and tools to do it.

I'd be happy to help with engine management questions. What's the issue you guys are having?

I'll be there for you. It really isn't a very complicated setup. The most complicated part was finding the right crank sensor, which turned out to be less complicated than anticipated.

Your self restraint is admirable. I would be making boost noises on anything that even resembles a straight piece of road if I were driving something that sounded like that.

Also seems quite peppy. How’s the tuning process going?

Tuning is basically done. I might play with the ignition timing on the Dyno. Fuel is right where I want it.

Yep. That's our burnout spot! Lol

It applies power a little different than I'm used to. It has a ton of mid-range torque. It almost feels like a diesel. It pulls and pulls and pulls. It's really fun to drive.

I'll be posting video as soon as we are done, assuming everything goes well. I would prefer not to run the data up on my phone. I'm sorry. I'll let you guys see when we're done. I don't expect it to take long. The car is basically tuned. I'll probably play around with the ignition timing, and boost, but should be done by 2pm eastern time.

I'm reminded of a Dan Gurney quote:

At no point did we exceed 175mph

congrats on getting it to the street!
