Got my DM-100 gauge installed in a steering wheel pod. Don't know how I feel about it right now, if it starts to be annoying I will switch it with one of my DM-6 gauges. Tried to drive it at night here but it is hard with all the idiots driving with high beams and fog lights on.

Well, when you put silicon couplers on the pipes, make sure they are tight and do a boost leak test to make sure they do blow off. Mine did today on the way home for lunch, will have to fix it this weekend.

The IAT seems to take longer to heatsoak than the plastic one, will have to keep observing though. I still hate the lack of low end torque my 5.0 has, hope gears will help with that.

Drove the Camaro today and the boost held, only 10# though from the 100℉ heat. New IAT works, doesn't heatsoak but reacts fast to the methanol.

I get the 1 piece driveshaft soon for the 1LE differential, but the differential will have to wait. I will owe the IRS a lot of money soon since my wife's new job threw us into a high tax bracket.

My 5.0 feels more powerful with the CAI and Tune added.

EDIT: Nevermind about the 5.0 feeling more powerful, my ECU finally adjusted the LTFT's correctly and the car took off like a rocket, I have more power before 5000 RPM's now. First gear is worthless right now, spun all the way through even in 100 degree heat. Will see how she does on the track on September 7th.

Sunday is shaping up to be a great day at the track. 82 degrees as a high, private event so there will nothing but street cars. No 4x4 trucks to destroy the surface.

Engine is running pretty good, but today my transmission bounced off the rev limiter in 1st gear, then the next pull it short shifted at 5k RPM's. Will be calling Andy about that.

In stock IPF form I did, 330 RWHP and running a 14.1 @ 101-3. After changing gas stations I dropped to a 13.3 @ 107, pulley down I'm at a 13.1 @ 110. Sunday is test to see how much spacers slow down these engines.

Stock V6 runs 15 @ 92-94 here, track is 1100 feet above sea level, 91 octane max, headwinds and some say the track has a slight grade uphill.

Best today was a 13.122 @ 109.71. My 60' was 2.011, but my 1/8th mile MPH was down 1 mph, so I lost some power in 2nd gear. Final verdict, spacers make no difference on boosted cars.

Beat a few V8's today, my wife actually beat a SS 1LE today and a 5.0 in her bolt-on Mustang V6. Imagine what she is going to do with a Procharger on her car.

Just sick.

Sounds like you need a ported LFX manifold for that there LLT...

Unfortunately since you don't have a core to return, it would be a little spendy, plus all the random GM parts and pieces would be needed to. It's not a cheap swap.

Sent you a pm.

Would be interesting to see if the LFX Intake Manifold will net any gains on a supercharged LLT with a Stage 4 Ported IM.

I know the Stage 4 Ported IM increased gains below 4000 like crazy, it screwed up my LTFT's so badly that I had to get a new tune just so it would run a +25% LTFT.

Timeslip from my wife racing the SS 1LE. He was doing bracket racing with a full tree and his dial time was 13.2. This race was in the Heat 2 Head group with a pro-tree, so our RT's were terrible since it was 0.4 seconds from yellow to green. When her win light came on I heard a lot of "whoa" from the crowd, couldn't believe a V6 beat a V8.

That was round 1, I had to race my wife in round 2 and I beat her badly. 3rd and final round I raced a cammed V8 Camaro SS, something that I can't beat yet. He won by 0.0286 seconds, he said when he shifted into 3rd he didn't even use the clutch, he did not want to lose to my V6. That timeslip is the 2nd one on this post.

Was a great day yesterday doing the head to head racing, thankfully the group we were with had awesome people that didn't give us crap for running V6's. The minimum time was 13.99, so had that covered. The V8 Camaro my wife beat laughed about losing to a girl in a V6. I know if it was some other Camaro V8 owners losing to a Mustang V6 it would have been different.

I'm thinking about taking my car to Thunder Valley this Friday for test and tune. Just to see what I can do stock before I go FI. Will you guys be there this weekend? It would be cool to see your car in person.

Supposed to be raining Friday, and I'm helping a V6 owner install a ice-olator.

I am going to try on the 19th, we have our Most Wanted List race going on, be nice to get my V6 on the list.

Shoot they ARE saying rain on Friday.. too bad too because there's going to be some cool air that night! This is Oklahoma though, so everything could change tomorrow lol. My girlfriend and I are both taking off Friday to go to the fair during the day so it probably WILL rain all day.

What's the Most Wanted list? Excuse my ignorance. I haven't been to Thunder Valley since I had my Monte Carlo prob 8yrs ago.

We are in a club for muscle cars, we have a top 10 fastest list that is raced at Thunder Valley. Me and my wife are the only V6's in the club since we proved we can back up what we say we can run. Mostly Mustangs and Camaro's, a few Corvettes and Challengers also. The #1 is a 10.5 second 2012 Mustang 5.0, there was also a 9 second Corvette but he got kicked off the track since he had no roll cage.

I don't know if you are part of the Oklahoma Camaro club, but the BS that goes on in that club is what created the other club.

That's cool, sounds like fun. I miss going to the track. I've had my Camaro for two years now and I'm gonna do something special with it, as of now I'm planning on buying the IPS tt kit. I figure I'm a mechanic and I live close to a drag strip so why not take advantage and build up my new Camaro!

I'm not a part of any club but thought it would be fun with the Camaro. What kind of BS goes on in the Camaro club?

I have a fun time at the track, people can't hide behind a computer claiming they run a certain time. They either have to run their time or shut up.

The admins let anybody in the club that has a Camaro on their facebook profile. Too many jealous people in the club, they have to be the center of attention. You would probably be hated since you are willing to put a turbocharger on your V6 and also have the knowhow. Knowledge is hated in the club. I also hate how people will take what you do and try to claim credit for it.

On a better note though, here are my 60' times from yesterday:
2.182
2.011 (Personal Best)
2.119
2.107
2.079
2.133
2.041
2.070

MUCH MUCH better than usual, I started doing a small burnout to clean my tires off and it helped a lot. I'm also launching a little above idle and it is helping, I may need to try to launch even higher, the car bogs down too much till 5000 RPM's to get a good 330' time.

DA was over 2000, started with 2061 and ended with 2858. My best corrected time was a 12.780 @ 112.81 from a 13.122 @ 109.71 in 2176 DA.

Next step is to lower one of my meth nozzles to a size smaller and if I get my 1 piece driveshaft, install it. If it wasn't for the lack of low-end torque this car would be awesome. I'm starting to wonder if Torque Management is active in the IPF trans tune, 2nd gear feels more powerful than 1st gear, which is wrong. Also, the transmission shifts softly compared to the 6R80 in the Mustangs, that one will slam your head into the seat.

Do you run drag radials? If not, why not? I think with drag radials you may be able to get the 60' times down to a 1.8 which would definitely put you into the 12 second range

Yeah that doesn't sound like a club for me.

I talked to IPF about doing a tune and asked about the auto trans and the shifts because your right they are so soft! And I read from Matt@fsp and others how the auto trans tune is where a lot of the difference is. But maybe they just meant the torque management from the ecm tune? I don't know but this what IPF told me:

"We can tune the ECU and TCU separately if desired. The ECU tuning is where all the power is made ad we do modify the torque management which indirectly does affect shifting and improves drivability. We have a seperate TCU tune which firms the shits up 10-15% however the larger gains are made in the ECU"

Did IPF tune your tcm or just your ecm?

It is on my list of things to get. I would like to get some lightweight 18" wheels, throw some DR's on them and see what happens. I am running SS wheels right now and have Brembo's all around, so that is not helping, but looks cool.

I have both TCU and ECU tunes, but only 15% shift firmness is not much.

Now that I think about it, it could be from when we were trying to fix the stalling issue in the LLT's. Arno said he had to mess with the idle torque management. The issue ended up being from the PCV system not allowing air into the intake manifold during high vacuums. I know V60C1C7 tune has all my fastest times, but it ends up causing my LTFT's to run extreme positives, causing misfires during WOT runs. The biggest complaint I have with IPF is that I ask a question and I rarely get a response back. I asked over a month ago if Arno would put a max adapt of 5% LTFT on the C7 tune, no response.

I think the C9 tune was the one with a max adapt but no idle torque management, but it is no longer on the file server. I will try the C8 tune, see what happens.

Going to do an experiment, going to go to the drag strip with my stock intake manifold on, see if the MACE Stage 4 Ported IM even made a difference.
