So, talking with Mike on Thursday I got tingles about the GTO and the thought of getting her up and running hard. Here is my issue:
While I haven't had the car tuned as such, way back when I did get the car tuned after I had the car built and it had been run in, the car was set to 5 psi. The tuner turned the wick up to 12 psi and we did a couple of runs. We didn't get many runs done as after about the 3rd or 4th pull (open road) I dropped a cylinder. Now the main problem I was having (and still am) is that the boost doesn't come on hard like it should. It's a fairly consistent push, like watching the speedo climb. Now, there's no smoke from anywhere. I can hear the turbo's pushing air but I'm not sure if it's leaking, as that's what it seems like. Or maybe the waste gates???? Had the car dyno'd (power run) and at 5psi, she managed 2000awhp. Tuner said the timing is hell retarded and couldn't push past 5000 rpms.

Starting tomorrow, I'll be getting Brad to help me suss out my ecu and see what's what, as well as log a few runs. Maybe something will show and tell us what we need to know. (timing, air/fuel etc)
What I need to work out first, is how I can pressure test my plumbing.
Options? Mike mentioned some aluminium plate and some tyre valves since I dont have a compressor. Can I do one side at a time?
