Shift S3ctor 2016 Recap!

Great weekend at the mcminnville municipal airport here in Oregon! We lost 4th gear day one, but turned it up and shifted over the hump into 5th. Still went 177.8 mph in the standing half mile! This engine is over a year old and still keeps taking what we throw at it. Pass after pass after pass. Built and tuned by PREracing. Precision Turbo & Engine #pte6466 #turbo. Tuned on #COBB #accessport. #osgiken triple plate clutch. #turbosmart boost control. #manley internals. #preracing #fasterisbetter

Looking pretty good in the morning light!
