Probably not. Aaron is still thinking about the design, but probably going to go vacuum pump again.

Ha!

Actually, I'm driving the IOM for a couple of days. They still need to put the new motor in Gretchen before they start working on it. Will drop it off on Friday, if I can get it away from the wife. She loves orange and the backup camara. Big mistake letting her drive it.

The LFX has several areas where it should allow for higher boost and even more power than we could get out of the LLT. I can't wait to see just how quick this car will be after it is finished!!!

Putting the new one in. This one has two bad ring lands and has been running boost for a while. The new one will probably be more reliable for the next owner.

Well look at you, Mr. Nice guy. You could have sold that to the dealership and no one would be the wiser.

Wouldn't be right. Besides, GPI is the performance division of the dealership that did the trade. They would know.

Composite (at least that's what I keep telling myself) intake manifold. looks pretty rigid, but if we break it we'll build one.

Not going to go real drastic to begin with. We want to get a nice clean tune for about 8-9 psi on 93 octane. Then we are going to see if we can tune it at the same boost for E85. If that works out we'll get some forged pistons and lower the CR to about 10:1 and go for bigger boost.

Thanks man. There are enough LLTs doing FI now that I think the R&D will continue.
