Both attachment sites have plenty of movement, almost an inch, so I havn't had any issues with damage. To give it a finished look, it's based on an E36 M3 BMW front splitter lip. The lip is screwed into the ABS plastic.

She's back, still small turbo, but 6 speed w/LSD is a welcomed addition. Going to put a couple hundred miles on her around the Bay Area ending at the Bay Area VW/Audi group gtg. I'll get some more pics, but the boys clearly love that she's back on the road and is up for school bus duties!

UBRDUB is getting a little love.

Bugorama is just a couple of weeks away and it's getting close!

First off, last radiator got some trauma, so new one going in.



Next up new gas tank to run E85. Ditching the methanol injection for straight corn juice. There is about 1/3 less mileage to be had from ethanol so the tank is being increased to 1/3 more volume, in tank pump going in with baffles and finally a fuel level sender'











Need to get the tank sealed up and the E85 tune done, looking to get north of 450whp out of her, wish me luck!

We do cook a lot of corn fuel, but we call it a beverage...

A reasonable weekend had at Bug-O, finally got into the 12s at 12.7' had a couple of issues, but ended up being able to drive it home again so that's a win. Corn juice took me up to 386whp, and we are stuck there cause my ecu on sees up to 2 bar, 22 psi.

Congrats on getting into the 12's!
387WHP is almost 450 crank-hp!
Is that power at the 2 bar you mention or at 22psi boost?

22psi, maybe that's 2.5 bar? It's the max the sensor can read either way, I know I heard 22psi for sure.

Ah, no, 22psi is about 1,5 bar boost, but its 2,5 bar MAP
14.7 psi = 1 bar
