Very nice car I have seen it before on RTOC. Used to be owned by Riki who used to do copy side decals for the R5 and other graphics. Very nice car.

Why you going to put a 140 main and 0.9 a/c. It's all in the 2nd stage matey to sort fueling out for high boost. Get yourself a decent wideband

Yea might invest in a wideband, not sure what jets are in it at the moment, but its drinking the juice like a ferrari lol
