Custom Exhaust manifold made by Capt Bondo (turbobricks)
two Tial MVS 38's
Holset HX-52. Boost is currently floating around 25-27psi. Not very consistent yet, the ecu isn't all the way dialed in.

Mildly built TH400 (constant pressure 'manual' valve body, restricted converter feed. stock clutches)
RevMax converter "5800 stall"
Stock volvo rear end with a welded diff.
couple of pulls at 16 psi
3rd Gear burnout 18psi Turbo Civic HX52 GSR
Couldnt start spinning the big ol MH 26" drag radial without stalling the car with the ebrake on. So I created some liquid and got it started. Had to do 2 videos because my video camera man didnt press record the first time.

Cody's Truck 9/19/09
Here's cody's truck again, this time with 600 lbs. of weight in the front. Same setup as the Pine City pull. We thought he smoked his turbo for a second (He said he thought he was going to kill it), but only blew an Intercooler coupler off thankfully.
Next year: No Intercooler, HX52, moar Boost :)
In car of Mary Kay
Took a friend for a ride at 30psi today. The air was good and the car liked it.
Soltvadkert test and tune 2009
I went for a visit to Soltvadkert in Hungary in November 2009. It was dark and wet, but it's nicer with a video than no video at all.
Racing Club Soltvadkert have some cool turbo BMW cars:
This is one of them, an E30 chassis and a big custom turbo engine consisting of an M30 block, S38 lightened special bottom-end, S38 24 valve head and Holset HX55 turbo. Driveline is E34 M5 and E32 7-series LSD diff, the car has 5-lug hubs and big brakes from E34 M5.
