Looking good! A lot of great mods. Really digging the rear seat delete. Have been debating this myself, but unsure of how I want to go about doing it. Keep up the good work!

Getting the tune finalized and dynoed sometime with the next two weeks, I'll then know exact numbers.

Yeah I pretty much did it via guess and check lol. I got about 1/4 inch plywood traced out the basic design and cut it out. I then put it in the car to finalize the cuts. There was a fabric store by me, and I was able to match up the carpet to the OEM carpet.

Updated my post to reflect up-to-date info.

Also, some of you that aren't closely following the V6 FI section on the forums may not know this, so I'll post it here. I'm running into issues with my (stock) fuel system keeping up with the Rx OD pulley that was installed. Since I'm the first one to test the OD pulley out, no one knew for sure if there was going to be a problem. I'm peaking at 10 psi of boost and at about 7 psi the fuel system starts to fail. I could go with a meth kit right now, which should fix the problem. However I'm holding off until Tracy finishs up installing this on Smoke1lt's car so I won't know the results until after C5 fest.

Currently I'm thinkng about installing the stock pulley which produces around 5-6 psi of boost. V6owner ran a 13.12 @ 109 with the stock pulley, which is an absolutely awesome time, considering he was starting to run out of gas by the end of the track and it was over 90 degree's outside (DA well over 2,000). I'm confident that the stock pulley is capable (along with basic bolt ons) to be a 12.99 or better car.

Thanks guys, Tracy is sending out the stock pulley and the OEM crank pulley that the SC pulley piggybacks off of today, sooo I should have it on Friday or Saturday.

Those rims are looking sharp on the car, and looking forward to seeing some times with the fuel issue corrected.

UPDATE:

Alright as most of you who follow this thread and the FI thread know, I was having fuel system issues with the OD pulley. At around 7 psi the fuel system starts to fail and thus 7+ psi (was peaking at 10) is pretty much useless which in turn means anything past around 5,000 rpms is useless as well. The OD pulley was replaced yesterday with the stock pulley. I will say that the car definitely doesn't pull as hard down low since it is making less boost and at a slower rate. However what little WOT pulls I did, it seemed more stable in the higher rpm band. AFR looks pretty good, just a little rich so I'll have to get the tune adjusted.

Hopefully I will have track times in the next week or two.

Well this Rx Chiller has been the bane of my existence. Ever since it was installed it has been nothing but issues. Sure it works great, cooling my IAT temps down to 56-60 degrees. However since it makes the IAT temps inside the intake tube so cold and this Texas heat is 90-100 degrees everyday all day, it creates condensation on the MAF sensor. So far I've had the $80 MAF sensor go out twice now. The first time was on the way back to Texas from the shop down in Florida. The sensor went out 100 miles south of Tallahassee leaving me stranded there for two days until the local dealership express shipped in a new sensor. For the rest of the drive (11-12 hours) I drove without the AC in fear that it might go out again.

Since I've been back to my house in Houston, I've been running the AC a little bit, since the temps have been in the high 90's and my car sits out in the hot sun at work, making cabin temps well over 100 degrees. Well the MAF sensor went out again last week and as I guessed, when I pulled the MAF sensor out it was completely soaked. So for the past week I've been driving without any AC. Lucky for me work is only a 15 min drive from my house. However today I had to go to the doctor after work and I sat in my car for 45 mins without the AC. Here's a nice pic of my shirt lol.

Tracy just sent me a valve that is supposed to help regulate the IAT temps, but I have no idea when I'm actually going to have time to install it.

Hopefully this works, or I'm going to be tempted to rip out this chiller.

I'm fairly confident that Tracy and I can get this bugger figured out though. The Chiller is doing it's job, too well. LOL
