Turbo Cruise?

I can give his car a "Boost" in Power with a PCM flash.

I guess you missed the (Blown) part in "blown turbo Cruise". I think he said factory around 14lbs of boost, and he's up around 20 lbs now. But yeah it may be worth talking to him.

Funny, I have a 9/16" bar and I was thinking the same thing! haha

To be honest, as far as helping the 700XX turn, I felt the adjustable upper a-arms helped more than the sway bar. Ultimate setup was both, but I think I could get rid of the sway bar and be just as happy with arms only.

I never considered the sway bar helping the 700 turn. It does help slide the rear, reduces push in corners, and helps with inside tire lift. Slow speed turning the bar will not help..

As long as the bar makes the 700 feel more like my 400 I will he happy. If not I may have to part ways with it for a raptor or 450r and accept the fact that I will be doing a top end rebuild once a year.

Keith was able to forged a 5/8"s bar. Still trying to locate brackets and bushings. I guess the 11/16"s bar is hard to locate. I think the 5/8"s bar is perfect size any way. At least it is right in between the 2 sizes that L8ton racing made.
