Worth checking all turbo nuts/studs on a regular basis, they can work loose. I think you have an intercooler? Check all hose conections are also tight.

Mine ran 12psi as good as gold, presumably on Shell v power and an octane booster?

Regukar changes of good fully synthetic oil

You'll have more things to worry about than the turbo screamng, if the airflow went supersonic :-)

one of the hardest parts of supersonic flight, was getting airflow into the engine below supersonic speeds.

No octane booster no. What do people recommend?

Millers CVL turbo seems to be a favourite (wasn't Craig looking at a group buy?).

Dont forget that if your competing the blue book states the following:
Fuel
10.5.1. For Road-Going Series Production, Road-Going Specialist Production, Modified Series Production, Modified Specialist Production and Hill Climb Super Sports Cars, pump fuel is mandatory. Only air may be mixed with the fuel as an oxidant.
10.5.2. Sports Libre and Racing Cars. Only pump fuel or methanol may be used. When using methanol, the addition of 10% by volume of Propanone is allowable (Note J.5.13.6).
You're never going to get checked at our level but don't leave a bottle lying around your car at scrutineering :lol:

I thought valve protectant additives are allowed?

Brain fade over Miller Turbo doesn't contain any oxidant, in fact has anti-oxidant to stop fuel decaying!

millers is a lead replacement lube which is allowed, just happens it adds to the octane too.... ;-)
