TOMORROW:
Wire in the gauges, finished bolting the intake together, Bolt on the strut bar, put the new springs back in, recharge the AC unit, get the alignment done.... oh and by the way we still have to tune it with the chiller kit and run some dynos and make sure everything is working correctly and no leaks or rattles or CEL codes , etc. Then swap out the new tires for the rear in the winter and everything should be done :-) then drive 132 miles home with a raging CHONER

no 1 piece aluminum driveshaft?

STRONG BASELINE #s BTW. How many miles were on the car when you did a baseline? LS engine are famous for loosening up after a few thousand. I'm thinking the electric power steering and the NPP opened up a few HP(compared to 10-12 LS3s).

Are the NPP mufflers normally closed on the inside pipe? And the engine vacuum opens them? Or is it the opposite?

Today we ran the overdrive pulley in the back and drop to a 3.6 pulley on the front. We made too much boost at 12 pounds on one full pull. We have way more than enough fuel on the stock 1LE pump so tomorrow we will dial in further.
We are going to put the bigger 3.8 inch pulley back on the front to drop the boost to around 10 pounds and tune with that and more timing.
Heading to dinner but I will post a few pictures from the build today in an hour or two.

Lowered on Pfadts 1-1 1/4":


About to recharge AC unit for AI Chiller:



ADM Scoop installed(different view):


Catch can and breather installed:




.....FINALLY(only an INITIAL dyno tune....plenty more tomorrow and #'s will change as these two pulls are on 12lbs.)



(red pull was very first pull and we let off early as numbers didnt look right...subtle changed garnered the blue pull #s)


AGAIN....tomorrow will be 10 or less lbs and retuning for safety but Jeff Creech @ Carolina Auto Masters thinks we will have similar numbers with less boost and more timing....time will tell.

By the way......the 1LE fuel pump is MORE than enough to easily push enough through the FIC 850s. (was at like 50% duty cycle if I remember right)

LONG day and I forgot to get a pic of the boost gauges, sorry. :(

Yeah, the shop has been great and the engine bay looks nice and cleanly put together. Tomorrow will be a total of about 3 1/2 days.(chiller and gauges took FOREVER to get ran and plumbed and wired properly)

Could we get some decent pics of ride height and wheel gaps and front splitter clearance. Thinking about lowering mine with Pfadts. Did you get coilovers or just lowering springs?
