No, 650 RWHP is fine by me. I'm looking for consistent 10.5 sec passes under 135 MPH. Beyond that, it is a whole other ball game with safety equipment and what not. Maybe a hero pass one day to see how quick it can go, but I'll worry about that later.

Yes it is stock. The wife rarely lets me drive it, so I don't get much chance to miss the power.

No, I haven't been able to get over there much with the new job. We are still having boost issues. It is making 15 psi now and not running out of fuel with the new pump, but we can't get it to go higher than that. We decided to quit farting around and ordered the larger waste gate cans so it will start out at 17 psi. Hopefully they are at GPI now and Ryan will get a chance to work on it this week.

Man, they are busy right now. Even mustang guys are going to Ryan for tuning now.

Hey Gretchen, I've searched all over C5...

2010 LLT can we get the fuel pump injectors to work on her?

Want to boost her ( HP Tuners in beta )but want to see about fuel issues...

Was going to throw the intake manifold from the lfx on the LLT if that helps any

Injectors should be fine. You should be able to upgrade to the ZL-1 in-tank pump. I'm not sure if the LF3 high-pressure fuel pump will work on the LLT or not, so that's one you will have to figure out.

LF3 Fuel Pump Update

Well, we finally got everything sorted out to push the LF3 pump to the limits. I couldn't make it over there so I haven't seen the graphs; this is just what Aaron told me last night.

At 20 psi it made 600 RWHP without the supplemental fuel system; still running a bit rich. That's on an unlocked converter. My 647 RWHP number with the supplemental fuel system and LFX pump was with the converter locked. That means, we are probably making a little bit more power at the crank on just the LF3 pump that we were making before. So, the combination of a ZL1 in-tank pump, a LF3 HPFP and some fancy GPI tuning, you can make more power than any reasonable person should want from the V6 (flame suit on). That's the good news... and the bad news?

With boost cranked up to 23 psi (okay, I'm not a reasonable person) it looks like it spun a bearing. Ryan's already got the motor out to see if anything else is messed up. I am going to have them do a couple more things while its apart, so it may be a while before its back together. I want to have someone look at the crank; it has been taking a beating and I want to make sure it is still okay. I also have an oiling issue on the passenger-side turbo that I'm going to have someone look at.

All that being what it is, I'm probably not going to push this LF3 pump any further. If someone else wants to be even more unreasonable than me, have at it. It probably has a bit more fuel to give us, but I have my eyes on another car and I need to quit spending money on this one.
