    well the way I'm gonna run it it's gonna be 2staged but instead of 2 levels of boost I'm gonna run it with no boost which will be quick enough and a low level boost on the 2nd stage like 10-12 psi lol

    :) most of this thread is about a years worth I started collecting parts beginning of 2013 so it's took about a year to get it this far it was running and on the rd last year just with a different engine
    I'm near Cambridge mate town called st Neots

    I'm hoping to get it running for the first time in a couple of weeks so exiting times ahead
