so i just finishing up my build up on a d16y8 and just getting my turbo set up complete...im thinking since i have the built y8 and i have an extra y7 in my garage, i might run the 1/4 with my current y7 at very high boost...it might not finish...it could blow up....it could go damn fast.....i dont know...but to me it would be worth it to sacrifice a y7 motor in the sake of a one high boost run.

if i do it i will have to trail the car but i would film it and share the vid on the site....especially if it blows!!!!

i'm kind of with him ^^. it would be cool and all, but you'll get better times with the built motor anyways. sell the motor and make some cash to help along your project.

good....it not like the y7 is a piece of gold...its just a motor.....and in this state not many people keep them...thats part of the reason i never built a d motor untill now...cause the motor is cheaper than th build....

lol, which makes it a lot less loss of an investment if you do lose the motor.

funny thing is if you do blow the motor you risk a very good chance of ruining the turbo and otehr good parts due to things liek metal peices in the oil, metal parts going through the turbo blades.
