Man, I want to be able to see everything they do. I want to have 100% of my attention on the install. Lol

She is only 2, and if she gets cranky, it won't be fun.

In the big scheme of things a little wait won't seem like much after it's done. Between now and then...

Ok, I can officially be on the list! I put down 324hp on a 55 shot. Baseline was 270. I am knocking like a mother f*****. lol. Going to get trifecta after I get the new throttle body. Will run another dyno then. And I'll run the 1/4 next month.

So I'm right at about an auto SS. After the tune I'll be running 100 tho. Lol

Great man. A plug change or regap should fix the your problem.


Which kit are you using? Don't forget to post your dyno sheets on the dyno thread.

You guys want to help me track down the dyno sheets and time slips for the folks on the first page? I don't seem to be getting that done very quickly. I figure if one person just searches for 2-3 we can knock it out quickly. It would be nice to have a link to the post, but not necessary.

I'm running the zex kit, and I'm using the smallest jets they provided. I don't remember the sizes. I'm going back to get my bottle relocated after the fest.

I'll post up pics and the dyno after the fest

And running stock plugs right now. Will change out after the fest as well.

And I'm lovin it so far! Psssshhhhhhh!!!

I'll help out after the fest if u still need it.

I think it's a great idea to have links to the dyno numbers. Unless we just start posing them in here.

I'd say the system is working up through the purge solenoid. Check your activation switch(are you using a throttle position sensor or just a pushbutton) and your solenoids. Somewhere is keeping the solenoids from working and it can be a pain to track down but it's usually something simple.

These jets should only be used with a tune for over a 75 shot and the 125 shot you should use a 54N. Use this calculator http://www.robietherobot.com/nitrousjetcalculator.htm and use 105 psi for fuel pressure and 950 for nitrous pressure in the calculator. Each increase requires a new tune that Vince has now up to a 125 shot.

I missed this comment. I'll have to ask the shop about this. He didn't mention anything about it. Just said he would recommend a tune. And he knows trifecta is the only option...

Updated with PoorMansCamaro Dyno numbers. Wow, 54 RWHP gain on a 55 shot. These things do like the giggle juice!

Been running 4.5 psi, but did a few test runs at 6 psi to get ready for some logging/tuning w/Vince. Just waiting for his family issues to get cleared up now. I may just take them off and have the seals replaced while I'm waiting (about a week down time).

I have to say, I really need something better than these 19x8 245/50ZR19 Perellis. It won't grip for anything. I didn't want to do exactly the same as Beauwulf, but from what I've found that seems to be the best road course setup. Really want 9.5-10s in the rear though.

I guess you know everyone's gunning for you this year. Hope the weather clears up for you guys so you can get some good runs in before it starts getting too hot. Looking for you to be in the 11s this year!

Yeah the stock tires are lame. I know it goes against genreral rule of thumb but they say get em hot on a burnout and they stick alot better. Other thing is letting off the gas and getting back on it during the burnout in an effort to get both rears to spin at some point. Im workin towards the 11s and should be good to give it a shot in the next couple weeks. HDRS is hot on the trail and Ide like to be first in the 11s. If I do get there I will prolly back off on the nitrous thing and run an occasional 100 shot and wait on a SC.

Hey rod I went to order the plugs you told me to get but they ended up sending me the stock one..... How big of a deal is it to run colder plugs? Would I be cool running the 75 shot with stock plugs?
