'The Boost Bus'

Recommended Posts

Absolutely stock. It already does a fun thing where if you floor it at speed, it'll unlock, upshift to third, then wait a few seconds and bang shifts second. So that's cool. It's gonna blow up.

Well, I just purchased a tuner for it, so here goes nothing.  Plus, we aren't in our home state where a boat can easily be plopped in the water that's close to your house.

Tuner is in, turbo is back in, hood pins installed (#racecar!) and the van finally did a burnout! :evilgrin:.

Of course, right after I get back from seeing how much quicker the van is now (butt dyno says yes, is very quicker) my buddy tells me he's getting rid of his 96 OBS and will sell me his relatively new 200/100 injectors, a 66 mm turbo and Super Duty intercooler setup, gauges, and his tuner with custom tunes for CHEAP.  Dammit.  Was hoping to not fall too far down the modification tunnel again.  But here we are.  Supporting mod time!

Just wanted to reassure everyone that every modification is done in a very professional matter. And that it made all of 15 pounds of boost last night.

Black gorilla tape, very sticky and has a more textured look. Really looks good after baking in the sun a few days.

Thanks for the tip!  We are gonna have to find something with more holding power than electrical tape..... or when we put the backlight in the gauge we will re run the boost line through the dash cap

Man, I appreciate you guys looking out for me.

 

Friends don't let friends play with Ford products without the proper safety equipment. At least no one will know it's you driving the Ford...
