BTW, this is an LG8 with the closest approximation of a stock TGP T25 i can find...

viola... seems to be 3 trims of it, each with different maps....

first and third look to be best if the boost level is ever increased...that being said, the 56 trim looks the best at 8PSI.

Good! I can get a t28 alot easier than I could a t3 series. I really didn't want to have to switch to a t3 flange!

you throwing the TGP logs on the LG8 for max simplicity?

if so, i suggest getting them hogged out to match the D port exhaust shape that the LG8 heads will have.

i'm not 100% on using the LG5 pan...i BELIEVE they are similar enough, but i cannot confirm. if so, the windage tray should definitely kept on the LG5.

Back to topic, the engine is getting much worse. It is starting to backfire through the intake which leads me to believe that there is a stuck valve, bent pushrod or something like that. Not an ignition problem. Sadly, the ASC/McLaren is getting garaged today. After nearly 185k miles the engine has had enough of the high boost and my heavy foot.

I have the 97 GTP very close to completion to drive instead. I hope to have it tagged, titled and insured on Thursday.
