I never even installed my clutch delay valve because I thought the delay would help. Think slipping the clutch a little is our only option. I hope I haven't strained anything else in the drive train.

Traction isn't my issue. It's bogging off the line. Like said above I need to let the clutch out slower. Putting less stress on the drivetrain.

Have you run yours yet? I have pretty similar mods to you with the 6mt with RBs. My best time was 12.20 @ 117mph with MT drag radials. I would love just to run 11.99.

What did you do different in the two dyno runs? Looks like close to the same boost in both runs but almost 100hp less? What gear did you dyno in? What fuel are you running?

I believe 480 whp is the world record for n54 stock turbos. Maybe 450whp is a bit more realistic of a goal though.
