When you gonna get a number on that thing? Is it "done" as far as the tuning? I bet it's a blast!
No it is not done. I need to work on my ignition map some more. Too much timing under boost at upper RPM. I am replacing the exhaust right now. I am not going to do anything major for a while. I love the way it runs now. It needs some stall so it will spool up a little quicker. I am thinking about meth injection system for it but that is about it.

I always though one of those would be cool with a Typhoon/Syclone swap.

Good luck finding parts for that. From what I have read a 3.8 takes to boost a lot better than a 4.3.
