    I'm still not sure what we're looking at...

    Did that intercooler hose pop off of that hard pipe there?

      Yeah it looks as if the hotpipe coupler pushed past the rolled edge of the hard pipe...you can see the lip of the hardpipe exposed in the first picture better. I'd say he was saved by a loose clamp this time.

            I had a WG line pop off on the dyno.
            Luckily I have a small turbo.

                I had accidentally inverted the WG solenoid signal on the Haltech once. The boost gauge pegged at 31psi, but who knows what it really was. Pipes actually held together, and luckily so did the motor. That kind of thing really gets the heart pumping!

                  Yea, you'd just be sounding like a UPS truck no matter what you do to it.

                    Yup I was saved by loose clamps!!. It actualy sounded like a really ricer blowoff. My heart skipped multiple beats... After all that work, and failing, and failing.

                    At least the air outside was still not that warm, so I wouldn't expect much detonation.

                    You guys can expect me to add wastegate vacuum to my list of MUST do when veryfying the turbo mounting.-_-

                    And Matt, if my camera would unload its pictures without even connecting to the computer and on top send it directly to photobucket for use I would use it. But it does not.

                      I did a full lap and 1/2 at my local track with the WG line unhooked... I didn't catch on till I had made a full lap and was on the front straight in 4th gear, that's when my passanger was hitting my helmet pointing down to the boost gauge. Luckily we setup the map to be REAL conservative above 18psi or who knows what would have happened.

                        Maybe you should set up the warning light of your gauges to a mechanical punching glove that gives you a good smack upside the head whenever it goes off.

                          Or just have a TP limit which is close to your ideal power.

                          Which I have....0_o. I would have be ok...

                            What's funny about this comment is that I set a 18psi warning on the stack dash, but for some reason the day before the track day the 3bar GM boost sensor started to read about 6psi low, and from looking at the datalog of that run it showed I hit 16psi, so just under the warning.
