Texas Mile March 2014

The mile is done and my car is home and in one piece it runs fine.... as long as you do not try to go above 6300 rpm with the Nitrous turned on, then the throttle body spontaneously closes. Kind of a self limiting governor in 5th gear keep the car at 193 or below. The racing brake rotors work very well and the cage and nitrous add a few pounds. If I could keep the throttle body open it would have done 200, I'm sure.

Here is a video from in the car of me doing a 190 pass, at around 4:51 right about 3/4 of a mile it sounds like I'm shifting but that is just the car cutting out, due to the throttle body not able to stay open and the nitrous shutting off due to throttle body position, speed drops to like 185 and then it comes on again...oh, and there is cussing when the car cuts out and I know there is no chance of hitting 200 so don't let the little ones watch.



Andy may have a fix for the throttle body. I may change the gear ratio for 5th gear one more time again... pull the .81 gear that is in the car now and change it to the .75 that was factory.

Be interested to know what the problem was with the throttle body closing.

My car is in the shop for another round of modifications. I've got another head gasket leak so it is down until that is done while in the shop going for some more upgrades. Here is the list of what's on the agenda:

1. Change headgasket, inspect rest of engine.
2. Change transmission gear 1 from stock 2.66 to billet in range of 3-4 to improve 60 foot times in 1/4 mile and all around driveability with auto rear gearset.
3. Change transmission gear 5 from current 0.82 to the Z06 0.74 so the car will hit 200mph in 5th gear.
4. Possibly change gears 2 and 3 to balance the new ratios.
5. Install Ron Davis racing radiator.
6. Install oversize clutch slave cylinder and dedicated clutch master cylinder.
7. Install braided steel clutch line.
8. Install Heartbeat 2.3 blower
9. Tune for max performance on street gas, race gas, and with nitrous.

I'm looking at new 108mm throttle body but have not confirmed that I'm going to get it yet. Should have the car back in mid June for more racing.

I'm hoping I get enough airflow and cooling from the heartbeat to go over 850whp without the nitrous.

The gear changes won't do anything for the power but should improve my times at racing venues because it will make what power I have much easier to use.

The street slayer clutch is launching the car without a hiccup but by the time I go 60 feet the clutch is so hot it will hardly disengage for the rest of the gear changes. I'm hoping the upgraded parts and the transmission gear changes will help my clutch heat.

Will the gear changes now effect the comparison dyno data from the LS9 blower to the heartbeat blower?
