Still have a small exhaust leak so as soon as I get a chance I'm going to change out to a log style manifold. Also need to raise my rev limiter to about 7800 to get a little more power. I had everything balanced so just need a little more juice. Also may change out a few things on the turbo

Your little dyno-vid sounds like a fat wad of bliss man, and those are some seriously respectable numbers. I'm shocked by how linear your power curve is. it looks like there's no turbo lag at all. On the graph I can also see you're developing HP right up to redline with no fall off. I don't remember, is your valve train stock and if so, do you think it's worth the risk of pushing it to 7800 chasing after a few more ponies at the top end? That could be spooky :shock:
Sometimes people loose touch with subjectivity, because they've got they're heads stuck too far up they're own,,, Reality.

I like that stripe work!

This is almost exactly how I want mine to look once I can source one! Can't wait to see more progress. Anyway to make the 510 hood flip open like the one on that Hakosuka?

If you can make a 510 do this ( with some minor front end mods ), then you can make the hood open reversed, yes.

You could turn the car into a Transformer. Just a matter of money and talent. Front-hinge hood would be easier, but you still need money. And talent.

That could be doable my buddy did a front hinged hood on his VW GLI. Might have to enlist his help when that time came.

Picked up these at the eagle rock swap meet. They are getting polished as I type. These are 15x8.5 and I plan on fitting them on the rear of the 510 with a little massaging of the rear fenders lol

That's some right-proper dish, that is. Please document the mods and installation!
