I have an idea...it involves more boost, a higher TPS value, and my steady hand holding the camera.

Yeah, I know :lol: recording & driving at the same time just don't cut it. I was mainly trying to capture the sound :D

Did a couple of harder pulls today. Found that the WOT settings were too low (lean). Also found this when I got back to the house:

clearly, the aluminum bracket was not up to the load. Started fabricating an all steel bracket, using parts of the original NRG kit

Whoa thats quite a bit of torque there.

not really, the bracket was hugely cantilevered out there, its got to be stiff and strong to live. Aluminum doesn't like bending loads like that.

Its nice that it became obvious so quickly
