Yea. I was hoping to run low 11's. It's there, just not with the traction issues and me launching like a weenie. The mph is good for it though

So. Felt like the car was down on power. While doing a boost leak test. Found this...now this isn't the problem, but this line does come from a check valve that shouldn't be leaking and def is stuck open...gotta drop the motor to get to it though 😂. Should be good for 100 hp fix

You have to drop the motor to fix the check valve

And that sounds amazing

Sounds like some B5 shit

Wishing you luck .. does the motor / trans / subframe come down as one unit?

Good news, you can drop the motor a few inches, doesn't have to 100% come out. We'll see, i'm not gonna take this project on myself....
