Higher elevation (thinner air) and 91 octane most likely contibuted to the lower dyno numbers...Mustang dyno's typically run lower as well from what I hear although I have never used one.

Yessssss! its finally done!!!! Ill post some pics and dyno# but my next day off is tuesday or weds. Ill be able to hook it up by then. Im loven the boost I wonder why im only boosting 5.8 psi. I thought it would be pushing 7-8 psi.But who cares its friggen fast rpm hits you in the face with every shift. wastegate sounds like a rattle snake. I drove the car down town and I got major props. Boy!! did I feel Like a celebrity.

This morning has been bad. I woke up, to back my car out of the garage and a little oil leak was spotted and check engine light turned on maybe Im leaking from one of the oil line that feeds the turbo Ill take it to the shop this morning to get it checked. Hope its not any thing major.The car runs good the idle is like stock hmmmm?? If things runs great Ill put it to the dyno and post some pictures of my project Z.

I'd turn down my boost a little if I were you too. I've heard way too many horror stories of people on Greddy's stock boost. I'd turn it down just to be safe before you end up with a hole in your block.

Congrats on the GReddy install.

I am not a F/I guru...but I believe you are treading on very thin ice if you have not pulled timing running on 91 octane even at 5.6 psi...

There are quite a few other systems that need to be modified for the GReddy twin turbo setup to work safely in our car. That yours is the first Z this shop has worked on does not sound good.

Do you have any other modifications other than the Greddy TT?

Im running stock internals, the only thing I have is the nismo cat-back exhaust. Tha mechanic is a professional he's been doing it for maybe 30 years. His cars have been in turbo magizines. The problem was not really a big thing he said the reason it leaked because the metal expanded from the heat and made the connection loose. we had to tighten it. Its all good now. Also about the check engine light was because I put the car on a ramp (45 degrees) to check where the oil leak was comming from and the computer tripped ,reading that I was low on oil. Its fixed now. Ill post some pics.. Thanks for your guyz support and thoughts.... Pictures will be here in just 30 min..HOPE YOU LIKE IT ENNNNJOy :thumbsup: :)
