Holy crap that sounds bad azz. Curious once everything is fully setup what you will set for power. You should be able to set some good numbers in the 1/4 as long as you can hook that bad boy up. So I assume no factory warrantee. LOL

I'm going to get it fixed in the next week or two.. this sucks because I would have been loading it to put ona trailer today to head for bradenton.. I might do a boost a pump at first but that is notva ultimate solution. The car is moving enough air according to the logs to be making in the 850+hp range (crankshaft) so a real fuel system and maybe a forged shortblock are in its future. . My goal is to run as fast as I can with the stock blower so I'm going to do what I need to do.. for right now new converter and a bap will get it moving and to the track..

As of right now the car is making 16-17 pounds of boost with every bolt on and the meth is keeping the inlet temps in the blower hat 10degree above ambient. . I CANT say enough about how Good Chad at C.B.I has been about squeezing the power out of this thing. The custom grind I put in here has went in several of his other centri blower cars and made big power but I was skeptical about a cam with such mild specs for this build. The car idles at 750 rpm and drives like a champ (minus the stall not holding under wot) I have the blower at max drivable speed at 6500 and am commanding the car to shift at 62-6300..

Hey baron will you be using those 20in welds for the drag strip and what kind of 60ft's do you expect. I'm looking at running a similar setup, but would also like the performance.

update..
converter decided it did not like the power output.. I have officially seen the shortcomings of YANK converters now.. it ballooned and tore up the thrust bearing.
I decided to change a few things while i was in there for future upgrades ( twin turbo setup next year maybe).
crank needed to be cut well past were i was happy about so i ordered a new GM crank,, it finally just hit the ground..

the rods are standered fair H beams with wisco 11cc dish pistons ( car was working flawlessly when converter destroyed everything and did not want to raise the compression ratio}.
I am also using a set of TSP ported ls3 heads.
I had the machinist Pin the mains and do the rest of the stuff that helped my 440ci motor in my vette run well.
I had my guys at RPM check out the trans and to my plesent suprise there was zero damage. Rodney also got me a real converter built for the car and Coan had it done in a very short time...
to support the new setup and get the dependancy off the meth, I have ordered a few Squash dual pump fuel system and complete line kit...
The motor has been waiting for the crank so now that it has hit the ground the car should be running in a few weeks..

as far as the tires are concerened im pretty sure the car will be able to go mid 1.6s easily and with some testing get in the 1.5s.. they are never going to be as consistant as a 17" setup but my goal is to run DEEP in the 10s on the same 20" tires i run on the street.... my caddy has this exact tire on it in a 19" and it WORKS.. the 20" tire is exactly 1" taller than the 19"s i have on the caddy so the aspect ratio is the same... that car makes about 150 less hp than this one so only time will tell..
this setback sucked bad... but i learned a lesson.. when the number one tranny builder says dont use this converter its junk, listen the first time..

been following your build, sorry to hear about the converter taking out the crank. Very lame.

now forged with a badass fuel system, you are good to go

looking forward to see how it all sorts on the track!

1.6s will be effortless and 1.5s won't be much harder. With the stock converter, my best 60' is 1.57 on a well prepped track and 18" drag radial. I don't plan on swapping the torque converter either. Can't wait to see this beast and some track runs!

ok, car is back together.. I have put about 200 miles on it so far and its made a few wide open pulls and it seems to be good..



Right now the car only has about 18 degrees of timing in it. I am pretty sure with the meth we will be turning it up after I run it at Atlanta or at least have it quit pulling so much timing at such a low I.A.T (it starts pulling at about 130 now)

the build is as follows



built shortblock, stock crank, H beams, Wisco 11cc dish coated skirts
Heads are PRC cnc'd LS3 castings... 350 cfm
CBI street cars custom grind
TSP headers
stock zl1 catback (because it is awseome...)
meth with #10 jet for now..
fully ported blower
NW 102
squash duel pump fuel system.
LPE cold air
Coan 3000 rpm stall
10% LPE lower pulley, 2.38 upper pulley the car is making a solid 15.5 pounds of boost according to HP tuner log...
blower speed is at maximum safe level 25,000 rpm at 6500 rpm..
comanded shift points are being kept to 6300 and 6400 rpm.
weld 20" rts wheels 10.5 rear and 7" in front.
M/T 305 20s in back and 235 Perellis in front.


the car is going up to get some testing done maybe as early as this weekend. It finally feels fast.. the car has never really felt fast to me, which I contribute to the weight and the very stable chassis.. Now it feels fast..

I'm going to muncie for some testing this weekend. The car feels good on the 20s.. I'd like to get into the bottom 10s on them.. I honestly have no idea how fast or how much power its making.. like I said its only on 18 degrees right now.. it goes upper 10 afr when the meth comes on.. silly safe tuneup...

I'm curious to see how the NW 102 works out for you on the strip.

Good luck!!
