    Hey guys, I thought I would post my build thread here. I think it might have been misplaced in the members restorations.

    68 twin turbo dart project.

    This weekend I will be heading out to Fontana to get my license and do some low boost testing. Here are some pictures of the car as it is now.

        Beautiful car, awesome work, nice to know another twin turbo dart is close by. Wish I had half your fab skills, just went through your whole build, just jaw dropping.

        We went to irwindale last night. What night. Lots of ups and on large down but it ended on a high note. Long story short. The converter is too loose so after 2 15 psi launches and one failed attempt at a half track pass we lowered the boost and made 2 full passes. The good:

        1.I was able to get my license
        2.It did a couple of big wheelies
        3.It ran perfect didn’t even pull out the tool box
        4. It drove back into the trailer 100% no breakage
        5. We had fun

        The bad:
        1. Trans needs to come out again
        2. It only ran 6.30 at 111 on 9 psi an a 3 psi launch

          Congrats on the license, and bummer about the converter. 6.30 not to bad, at least you now have a good idea on what the car is doing.

          In all honesty it was an epic night. I know the internet will be rough on me for having such a slow twin turbo car

          True but your still dialing it all in, so they cant say to much, bet their first run out after a build they ran the same or maybe slower. Your run will be faster then my first once I'm up and running lol going to scare the crap out me first time lol
