Final bump to give my Squash dual 400lph setup credit. Turns out it must have been the Aeromotive Pro series regulator. After beating on it a week ago no issues. The car sat for 3 days and today after work....key on then crank it up and it fires up immediately.

Thanks again Andy and Squash Performance!!!!

Update.....car/pcm/fuel system has been flawless for the last 2 months, 2000miles. It was reading real rich on my AFR gauge. PatG was never able to complete the tune due to the original PCM issues and he lives over 5 hrs south of my shop.

Anyway, lst weekend, i decided to swap from a 3.7" pulley to a 3.55" and add a ZR1 3bar MAP sensor and drive down to Victoria Tx to let Pat have at it in his environment at Kurt Decker's place (LSX Performance).

Pat updated the tune on 95 (93 blended with TORCO)octane without the meth turned on. Managed about 14lbs boost (200kpa) on the map sensor. No slip evident. Tune was real conservative at 10.8-11.0 afr by my choice. Made 754/708 on Kurt's Mustang dyno. I think it had 30-50 more left in it if we would have pushed the afr and tuned with the meth and cranked up the timing.

Car drove the 6.5 hrs back home flawlessly, even in the hour plus in Ft worth stop and go traffic on the way up to Wichita Falls.

Will convert to twin turbos at the end of the summer since my D1sc is holding me back.

I still would swap to a F1 (you need to anyway to feed that 427) if I were you to see what it does before making a switch to TT.

I think for all out power ...especially, north of 1000 rwwp turbos are the best for the street manner, lower iat, and power control hands down...Of course my opinion is biased

Besides the lower iat thing and street manner stuff I agree for over 1000hp it's just easier to make it with turbos.

Very nice. Has to be a pretty conservative tune, which is a good thing. Seems there should be quite a bit more in that setup.

yep turbos , no belts to worry about , which tend to be a problem when making big power. either slipping or breaking.

Thanks, yes it's very nice to drive it again. 900 miles round trip and not an issue.

On a side note, the more i read about twin PTE6766 turbos the sooner i want to do it. I really want to get some use out of my D1 but i dont know how much longer I can hold out. These turbos are beastly. I wonder how 1100-1200 whp feels

Think about when you kicked the tires and lit the fires in that beast you used to fly.... It'll kick you in the nether regions...HARD...... you'll run out of gear way before you ever run out of power.... your car will accelerate harder in 4th gear than it did stock in first....

Shifting into 4th gear and having the front suspension stretched out as the front end comes up is AMAZING....

That is just dreamy. I've never been in a 1000+ car before, but 4th hitting like first paints a pretty explicit picture. That's insane. Congrats Bull. We had a family friend a while back that was a trainer for F-16 pilots here in Wichita. He even mowed his yard fast!

My tuner had a '12 TT 5.0 that was north of 1000rwhp and that was absolutely insane! He had slicks on it and it still blew the tires off the car. It was one hell of a ride, right up until 4th gear came apart. He sold it shortly after it got put back together so I didn't have a chance to get the full effect of the power.

One of these days..........
