It did. I have to explain a little. I had 4 runs on the dyno. The first run was actually at 10 psi although they say 15. But the numbers were correct. at 10 psi. The second and third runs were at 12 psi and the last was at 15. That is where it hit 886.8 rwhp and 822.3 rwtq. Or converted to 1064.16 hp and 989.76 tq at the crank. As you watch you can hear the runs get shorter (reving faster) with each higher psi setting. each run being 3000 to 6000.

This is a pic of the TA.

This is how I found it in a machine barn on a farm. Totally in pieces, the subframe out but all fenders etc attached because all the body seams had been filled and painted.

Took me 3 years to reassemble and build the motor and suspension for the strip.

Yes. I had it in the new members introduction section. Jonpro03, once you go turbo. you 're ruined. I love turbocharging. It'* so simple and easy to make HP. Just have to understand heat and the effects on the engine. I've owned a turbo '91 Dodge Spirit, fast. An '87 buick Regal Turbo T with mods, faster. Then I built the TA. Scary fast. Mark L
