Nice. Says dyno tuned what did you put down. Also what are the specs on the tires? I was trying to zoom in on the sidewall
but couldn’t tell. I have the street s/s 275. Nice looking ride.

Looking good. How do you like that LSD? I also recently bought a '12 p31 car with no LSD and doing some research on which LSD I want.

it made 473 whp being slightly conservative, Matt at AMR said he could touch 500. I told him its fine where it's at for now. Once a friend of mine gets his tuned locally through a mutual friend, I'm going to check his out since its getting tuned with hp tuners.

The street tires are 265's and the drag radials are only 245. Im going to try and get a bald 275 to try and check for rubbing.

Streets are 265/35/18
Drags are 245/40/17

I love the Wavetrac, few things swayed me to it over quaife but either would be fine. I also installed it myself so just my time in labor.

great looking car(kinda partial to the white myself)....but good luck getting traction with the drag radials. I ran a set of 285 M/T Street Comps(brand new and prepped) on mine for a while a few summers ago and STILL could not get any traction so I went back to a normal rear tire and just had to swallow having to feather in the throttle from a dig

How much did you have to modify the housing for the wavetrac?

not too much. You just have to take a die grinder and remove a little bit of material on the one side.

yes, was a little rough on jacks/jackstands but not too terrible.

Great progress on a short amount of time! I see that WW Evo 9 in the background. I miss mine terribly.

thanks, these are things it absolutely needs to be the best car possible. And the evo is my wife's toy, although I drive the **** out of it.

INS1GNIA 12-28-2018 04:01 PM

That's a whole lot of white in the driveway lol. Congrats though and nice work on the progress. Look forward to seeing the rest.

Phil1305 01-27-2019 09:35 AM

Got my new oil in for this season, going with schaeffers supreme 9000 5w40. Ive seen the VOA of it and it looks pretty stout, and probably better than the Motul 8100 I was using.

Bad news from the track yesterday, snapped my driver side axle. Good news is driveshaft shop axles are on order.



BLKROKT 03-17-2019 01:30 PM

I broke my drivers side rear axle at Atco a few years back. Wish I had waited for the DSS axles but they were on 8wk backorder and I couldn’t wait because of a track day coming up. Curious where yours broke, here was mine

I didnt pull it apart yet bet it's at the outer joint by the knuckle, splines still in hub.
