Just wanted to keep you guys in the loop. I installed a Vibrant -4 AN to 1/8 NPT fitting that has threaded restrictor pills and you can change them out. I started with .045 restriction and it still smoked under load, so I then installed a .030 restriction and so far this seemed to have done the trick. I'm surprised how little oil these Ball Bearing turbos actually need. I have not boosted it yet so if it still smokes under WOT I may have to go to a smaller -3AN oil feed line.

I will also be making the drive to FBM to get tuned within the next couple weeks. If you live around there and would like to meet up I'd be more than happy to!

So I got my car tuned a few weeks ago at FBM.

I made around 400 on e60 with conservative timing at the recommendation of LJ to help preserve my motor as long as possible. LJ @FullBlown is a hell of a tuner and hell of a guy he even stayed almost 2 hours after their business hours so he could get me on my way back to chicago same day. I am happy to say that they will be building my motor for next season

Was at the track the other day. My best pass was a 12.2 @ 116 with a 2.0 60". If I can cut my 60' down I know this car has an 11 second pass in it as it sits. This run was lift shifting. I can cut a couple tenths by doing no lift to shift and launching a little lower and slipping the clutch more.
Not bad for my first ever time doing a pass at the track though.

Car enthusiasts like myself get bored and want to move on to new platforms.
