Nice, I just hit 1k on my 2013 2LT RS Crystal Red. Can't wait to see what you can do with the FLX. Looked you up to see about the SC and mods, just have three years before warranty is out... oh hummm...

Don't think its that easy...if a simple ECU change could cure all of our woes it would have been done by now.

Here's how today went. We started out at 50% duty cycle on the turbos and just the HPFP. We kept upping the boost until we ran out of fuel that way, then we turned on the supplemental fuel and added boost until we got the AFR back to a good level. When we first turned it on at 60% duty cycle the AFR was 10.0. At 70% duty cycle it was 11.5 (still a little rich, but making good power). We made NO changes to the tune at all, just upped the boost. I don't see why you can't do that with the LLT, too.
Congrats what you are doing is amazing . Cant wait to see some vids ,

I would just like to say congrats on your car..I hope it brings you the enjoyment you are looking for.... one thing is for sure you are going to catch a stock or even worse(for the owner) mild modded ZL1 off guard sooner or later on the way to work, hate to be that blushing owner great job

If you guys read back Derrik posted as to why we shouldny give up on the LLT. He said how in the end they ended up having to do with the fuel pump which we knew but says it should be doable on our engine
. It's somewhere back a few pages
Sorry trying to remember and type fast. I'm at work. If it's not reposted I'll go back and quote it when I get a chance

We still have the very limited tuning options, but if someone out there was actually knowledgable or skilled enough with tuning the Bosch ECU I don't see why this same exact thing couldn't be done on the LLT either....so I agree with Gretchen.

I'd love to see IPF, or maybe LMR with their new in house tuning attempt a nice turbo build on an LLT, but I just don't see it happening any more especially since it would all be one big gamble. Instead, going with the LFX and its Delphi ECM has already proven to work and paths are being forged ahead.

Not downing on the LLT, but unless your already an LLT owner with a sizeable amount of cash strapped into your ride, I don't see any reason to attempt it on the LLT and I hate saying that. I know IPF has expressed interest in doing tuning on something more special and unique than just their regular SC kit but it just hasn't happened sadly.

As of this morning all the parts are in except the converter, which should be here today or Monday. So plan is to start work Monday and finish up Tuesday morning.

I want to do this but no one can answer how the ecu goes
Everyone says not possible but I don't how people do motor swaps into the SS without running into this problem
Would love to do the swap

But back on topic this is exciting

LMR has actually already done a turbo build on the LLT.

Let's start betting on the 1/4 mile time people my guess would be 12.1-12.4xx

It will be a 1000 ft. track, so no 1/4 time this outing.

Sorry but this thing is going to destroy the track. It'll do 10's. I hope that converter gets in on time.

Is this a recent build? Not sure how I'd of missed it. Any info on it or how well it performs?

You are way under estimating this car. This thing can make ZL1s and GT500s look silly.

Oh crap, my bad, haha I'm just guesstimating it with the hp. Back tracked and scratched that.. Take 2. 5seconds of that...

Btw, how is the traction control doing for this build is it still working or what?

No, not a recent build and not on the site. Just something they told me when speaking to them.





Please post vids of the car if you get it to the track....
