I finally get something worth racing & posting about but lost. I was at a local car club picnic last Saturday with mostly Typhoons, Syclones, Mustang Cobras, & a couple Ram Air Trans Ams. This guy wanted to race me in his Typhoon. I was like finally. We go to a rural back road down the street from where we were picnicing. On my way to the race spot, I noticed the car felt slightly sluggish & if I didn't know any better, it sounded like I had a boost leak. This Ty has an upgraded turbo & running a alcohol injected fuel system. We line up, flager does the 3 finger & drop arms start signal but the Ty took off early so that race was a no go. The second round, I reved up tp to 4500 RPM but rode the clutch out easy off the line. I got beat by about 4-5 car lenghts. We came back to the picnic area & I told one of my 3SI buddies that was there to drive my car & tell me what he thinks. He drove it, came back & said hell yeah you got a boost leak somewhere. We checked the engine bay & found that the intercooling pipe going to the back turbo had that bolt missing on the flange (where they connect). You could practicaly pull the pipe away from the turbo with your hands. I showed this to the guy I raced so that he knew I wasn't just making an excuse for losing. We went to my buddy's house to find a bolt to fix the problem. We got back to the picnic but then the Ty wasn't runnin worth shit. So I was nevertheless stripped of my chance to redeem myself & represent for 3SI. DAMN IT.
