Not sure about that yet. They are starting out crazy early in the morning. You know I am NOT a morning person & I do love to sleep in on my weekends. We'll see.

You did a really nice job on the build Ruby. The headers sound great, a lot deeper then before.

You should stop following that P/U for 2 days lol!!! Looks great Ruby. Really want to get that same exhaust setup soon. Have to wait a little though. I put the level 2 Bmr suspension on last month. Also went with trailing arm and toe rods. A little suspension work goes a long way with the V6.

That would be MY pick-up truck, with hubby driving to haul my parts! LOL

The last pic is the DBR guys taking her out for a road data log. It just looks like she is in the grass due to the way the exit out of the shop goes. LOL
The oddity in the 90-100 MPH range was not as bad on the road but I have not seen that graph yet. It seems that it is picking up exhaust pops & grumble and interpreting it is knock & pulling timing. May require some re-tuning at some point once we talk to some other tuners that have been dealing with the same issue.

I am very pleased with how everything turned out. Just need to put it all to the test now! Who wants to line up with me?

I got this from my tuner yester in response to questions regarding the way Ruby was pulling timing on the dyno between 90 & 100 MPH:

The timing was only doing that on the dyno, didn’t do it on the street. We did a 0-100mph pull and everything looked perfect!! I have seen cars do some different things on the dyno that they don’t do on the street, usually the torque converter, but in your case I think it was load based. I’ll get all your stuff together this week.

I'm interested to see the numbers from the street.

I have taken Ruby out for a couple of rides since install of her headers & tune & I think she is still "learning" her new parts. Each time the sound seems better & the get-up-and-go seems peppier. I just can't wait to get her out on the drag strip to see what she will do. Here are a few pics from today.
