Any LFX folks spraying a 150 shot yet?

Tracks will be opening soon and I'm thinking about trying out a 150 shot anyone been this high yet. I have a tune for a 100 shot and run high test fuel usually 93 octane. Just asking before I put the pills in and give it a run.

a 125 is what ran into the 11s on an LLT with skinnys up front and slicks out back.

Just a thought

I'll say an LFX can handle the 150, then.

The LLT can handle the 150. I know of a local guy who sprays the 150

I don't have pills for the 125 only 150, but I have over a 100 runs on the 100 shot.

Oh ok well I would at least tell Vince you're going to be running 150 and have him draw up a tune for that as well. Just to be on the safe side. Like I said, there's a guy here spraying 150 of juice but I don't know how many times he's done it so don't know about longevity.

If you need to get a hold of Vince pretty quickly, it's better to email him direct.

No runs yet, still waiting for an updated tune from Vince since I did a lot of changes with the diff also. Been two weeks still waiting. Don't want to take a chance with the air scoop and solo HFCs added and hurt something. Than after some motor runs I'll try to get an updated tune for the 150hp spray.

About 500rwhp from what I've read. Things start breaking at that point.

A few more weeks the weather will cool down and I'll let you know how the 140 shot does with the stand alone fuel system setup. Looks like this Friday night temps might just around 62 - 57 at night I might just do a little late night pull at the track on the 100 setting as a test run.

Get a custom tune. If you can test and tune near a track that'll be optimal, at 150 shot any tune error will cost you a large sum of money.

Matt@FSP has me dialed in on the 100 level , so I'm golden on that tune aspect. I have an A/F meter and I own the HP Tuners Pro Suite software. I'll do some 330' hits, than some 1/8 mile and some 1,000' runs if all looks good. Than we bring out the big run and go for it.

Any luck on the 150 shot yet? I have a 2013 Cadillac ATS with the 3.6. I have a 2 stage NOS system with a 125 shot. Well last time out only the first stage came on with a 75 shot and still ran a 12.55@110.61mph. Im trying to find out more info and upgrades for this engine so I came over here to see what you guys are up to with the V6 camaros. What compression does your 2012 have? Ive been fighting KR bad in mine. Just curious if you have had any issues with KR in your car?

You're pals with the guy with that tuned 2.0 turbo car? Not to knock you or anything, but that turbo 4 cyl car is bad ass! I'm leaning hard towards picking up a turbo 4 6th gen Camaro and cranking up the boost.

12.55 is pretty respectable on a 75 shot. What do you run without the juice? According to the Caddy website your car weighs 3461 w/o driver? That's about 270 lighter than my 1LT v6 auto... Definitely helps.

Yeah that was John I was racing. We talk a lot. A lot of guys like the 2.0T but its not for me. It was hard enough dropping down to a V6. The V6 still sounds pretty descent. Im just waiting for the ATS-V to come out. That will have a twin turbo 3.6. I never made a completely stock run. I had my trans firmed up and about 8 degrees of timing pulled for the nitrous and ran a 13.9. Johns 2.0T is pretty quick. His best time so far was a 12.6. The ATS is definitely light. They start a 3325lbs and go up from there depending on options. Mine is in the 3400's but never weighed it.
