Holy crap. I can't believe I never posted last night. I typed up a big giant long post, and when I clicked submit, it froze up and I lost it all.

I then posted a simple explanation and the video, but I messeed up the embed AND posted it in Chris's name.

So, this morning we have to take the u-haul back and grab a bite....................... and drive...

I'll give a detailed account of it all in a bit but for now here's the video.

Numbers are lower than expected but the wheels are losing me about 25 HP. Good thing is that my wheels are accounted fo in our race. My crutch is that I'm about 80 hp down to GTA.

A leaky break booster hose was the culprit. No real way to tell. It didn't collapse til it had been running for 15 minutes or so when the hose heated up. The collapsing wasn't the problem, but it was allowing a seal to get in.

That was not the entire problem because in all of my troubleshooting, I played with it. But the car ran bettr enough to drive, I just didn't know it because still sounded similar and still smoked a bit.

Anyway, here's the video. Sorry bout the delay.

Congratulations PQ, glad you were able to get it all worked out and it only turned out to be something minor. Enjoy the new found power....

Hey PQ,

I'm just glad it's running and I can only imagine the relief you are feeling...

Good On You for tackling that on your own...

Kudo's to the C5 members that were able to and stepped up to help as well...

Wrong hoses?!! PQ's a cheapskate! He probably bought them at the dollar store

Glad you got that beast running! I look forward to seeing it at C5FestII!

If you drop it off and pick it up a few weeks later you get two trips

as the car was idling he saw that some of the vacuum hoses were collapsed and heard a vacuum leak.

So, like emma said we Pulled some of MY LS3 hoses off and put them on his car to get the car running and tuned.

I'll let Randy give you all the details but the numbers were good and he's got a nice safe tune... but those 22's are KILLING him...

So it took some LS3 parts to get his L99 running right...

I'm guessing he lost a good 30 HP when we took my hoses off....



The good news is the car runs great
Cool beans... You might want to let him borrow those parts out in AZ so he can try to keep up...
