~ 700hp Turbo Saab, 312kmh (194mph)
Extreme turbo Saab + 300 kmh
Many viewers have misunderstood this video, so I explain it a little:
-Speed at finish line (1mile/1609m) is measured. Time is not measured.
-First Saab does 1st and 2nd gear with ~half throttle. Second Saab has limited Boost for 1st and 2nd gear.
- three extra seconds between 0-100kmh typically means ~30meters wasted. But three extra seconds used in speeds close to 300kmh, means almost 300meters wasted.
Here is equally powerful RWD cars (if not even more HP's) These RWD's are a lot faster between 0-150kmh, but these Saabs are faster from 150kmh-300kmh. You get the point when you compare speeds at finish line. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=urWWdomnncw
-A Saab 9-5 driver pushes a little too much throttle @3rd gear and looses traction. He lifts a throttle and pushes it back, but too much again and then he gears up 4th, a bit earlier than planned. (optimal is@205kmh).
Earlier that summer I broke one gearbox when pushing too hard on 3rd gear.
With new gearbox and at later event, I drove very gently on first three gears to avoid breaking it again. I pushed WOT for the first time on 4th gear @ 190kmh. You can hear it clearly on following video. Engine tone changes totally around 200kmh. Incar video is from 299kmh pull (at 1 mile race) Something happened to camera during the run. So I didn't get any incar video from a 305kmh pull. To see that run from the start line, please see my other videos.
Here is incar video until camera dies. Start is @1min. http://youtu.be/M4NNX4Ygnwc

Holset Oil Drain - The Right Way in HD
Watch It In HD!!!
This is my first HD video. I hope that you enjoy it.
Since I built the car, I was told to watch the drain since I used a rubber hose. I normally check the car weekly if not more often and on this particular day I found that my drain was a bit larger than usual.
When I started the build, I knew that I was going to run a Holset turbo. The company has release all the info on oiling requirements, so I decided to use them. They called for a drain that was no smaller than 19mm which is bigger than -10AN yet smaller than -12AN. To ensure that I had the minimum size covered, I went with a -12AN drain.
This is not easy and no one currently sales a bolt-on -12AN drain. One reason is that the return hole in the oil pan is too small and must be enlarged to have a true -12AN drain. It would be senseless to install all those expensive fittings and have it bottle neck at the oil pan. This just takes a little effort and thought.
I had a -12an bung welded into the oil pan. I then purchased an adapter that would bolt to the bottom of the Holset with 3/4in NPT threads. I then used a 3/4in NPT to - 12AN adapter off of the CHRA. The front motor mount also has to be slightly altered to allow clearance of the drain (You can see this when I am installing the new fittings). All of this was done during the build, so I do not have footage of it but it is all easily seen in the video.
When I first tried to assemble the drain, I was trying to use a different style of fitting with stainless steel hose and they were entirely too large. They would not line up without hitting each other and there was no way to trim them. This was the only thing stopping me from starting the car so I went to the local auto parts store and found a hose that would fit. IF YOU ARE IN THIS SITUATION BUY THE RIGHT FITTINGS TO AVOID THE DISASTER I ALMOST RAN INTO. This hose only had 1900 miles on it when this occurred. On the bright side you have a video to shed some light on the problem.
I ordered my fittings from a company called Race Parts Solutions. They were very helpful with the return issue and their customer service was great. The rest of the fit and modification can be seen in the video. I cannot say that the same fittings will work for your application because the manifold, turbine housing, and where you weld your oil pan bung play a large role in where your drain will need to be.
I choose to use a fiber braided push lock hose instead of just the flexible push lock hose. I went this route because the oil drain is exposed to the roadway and the fiber braided hose is better protected against debris. I also used boot band clamps to secure the hose but they make clamps specifically for that.
All in all it is not a hard job; it just takes a little time, thought, and ingenuity. If you find a set of fittings that work for you, please let us know what they are and your setup in the comments. I hope that this helped you get Boosting and I really hope that you enjoyed the HD footage.

1995 GTi VR6 first start-up with MegaSquirt
After a one year journey, that started with an overpriced, used Supercharger kit with busted software and a rusted muffler pipe for a charge tube, this is my first successful start-up of my 1995 GTi VR6 that is now running MegaSquirt v3.57, a custom made top mount Intercooler and short runner intake manifold, and a few other goodies.
