    No trailer for Sick Week? How can you run balls-out without a hitch?

    Bit of an update almost a year later...car ran well for a few days at Sick Week, then Dave and I started to hear some bottom end noise. We bailed after day 3 and went back to the trailer before things got worse. After getting home and pulling it apart, I found two rod bearings that weren't looking too happy. This motor was a used motor that I chucked in and really didn't know any history on, so I'm not too surprised.

    It's now fully disassembled, parts are at the machine shop and it will be back together with some upgrades in a few months.

    Regardless, looks like a fun and successful project. Those 23x7.5" M&H's hooking up well!

    Hey Todd...wanted to circle back. You were right. Pulled the turbo part and measured. Compressor measures out to be t3 60 trim. Exhaust side was stock, std wheel in a .48 housing.
