Took LT1 Boost Turbo T/A out for maiden voyage

took the TA out for the maiden voyage (quick run up and down the street).

Having trouble with the electric gauges though... A/f doesn't light up, boost gauge doesnt shown any boost, just registers 30" of vacuum, and the fuel pressure gauge reads 30psi... when it is 43.5 @ idle. i need to figure that out before i take it back out.

As far as how it runs... it runs good. 383ci, stock heads, baby cam, T76 with stock Lt1 manifolds flipped forward. Its running 7 psi according to the wastegate spring. Feels very strong for such low boost and stock 220cfm LT1 heads.

1st gear @ 1/2 throttle spins the street tires, 2nd gear from a roll spins the tires as soon as I hit 2500rpm, and 3rd gear from a roll spins the tires once i hit 3500rpm... and spins them all the way to 90mph. Car rips good. time to mount the dr's.

Glad to hear it's running

Looking forward to some future updates...aka dyno and track numbers.

On a positive note, registered and inspected my 73 on Friday and took it out for a nice lil run to Hampton.
