    close....
    except it's not being pushed by a gasser, it's pulling one.
    Didn't want to embarrass the guy though

    Shit, I was just through Pismo 3 times, 4 I guess really. Qoulda been cool to see it.
    Anyone going to Pismo sometime that wants to meet should post up, because I am going to school in San Luis Obispo and I am at Pismo usually about once a week, centurion is not here with me for most of this year though, since it would cost me $500 to park it here with no need to use it.

    I should have some pretty fun updates on this soon. Motor is coming back out to check on a few things, and while it's out it's getting some goodies.
    I've got a turbo off a 14L detroit series 60, compression is getting lowered down to 16:1, and the top end is getting ready for a few more rpms. hopefully I can get this done within a month or so... I'm getting pretty exited!

    Nice cent! I guess we are the few 3rd gen 250 psd owners! Sounds like you got some ponies! Have you had it on a dyno and if so how much is she putting down?

    Haven't had it on a dyno. Some guys that have had similar setups have put between 500 to 600 hp to the tires. I would like to be in 550 range, but we will see what happens. It's definitely fun to drive, I can still tow with the big turbo, and if it's driven right it doesn't smoke on the street either.
    Here's some pics of the new turbo:

    250cc BD code injectors with 100% over nozzles, modified Borg Warner K31 turbo, intercooler, electric fuel system, dual high pressure oil pumps, built trans with billet flexplate, a little propane, and tuning for those mods.

    made some progress this weekend:

    Don't know why this picture insists on being upside down, it isn't on my computer.

    As I suspected, I bought a dud motor hardly a year ago. This thing barely has 5000 miles on it and most of the cylinders look like this:

    I guess that is what I get for paying someone else to do something for me. luckily this motor has a warranty on it, so as soon as I get the politics worked out with that I will be able to start putting it back together again.
    It almost seems like the builders of the motor used the wrong size pistons for whatever they bored it over to. I can grab the pistons at TDC and wiggle them all around extremely easily... it's so pathetic it makes me sick. Tomorrow I am going to pull the pistons and rods out of the motor and try and figure out why the rings were trying to destroy the cylinder walls so fast.

    Looks to me like more than 5000 miles!!! Ridge and bore finish look like it has not been bored in many miles.
