Congratulations! Maxed the dyno on the turbos alone or is that nitrous also?

I am guessing turbos only.

Turbos only... and..... This was through the exhaust system.... That's a big restriction... We'll be running the turndowns at the mile....

I'm stoked.... Told Corey I couldn't wait to drive it... he gave me one of those you're nuts looks...

Thanks Sam... Gonna be fun...

Keep in mind... exhaust restriction, and the MAP sensor was breaking up really bad at high rpm's... We have a new one on the way, It'll be here in the morning from Arizona... It's nice having connections...

Chris Delgado from ProEFI/D3 Engineering, thanks... much appreciated... it was like watching two mad scientists.. both of them in the car, laptops smoking, muted conversations, wayyyy above my knowledge level...

As long as it works, I'll drive it...

Oh, and we are hooking the BAP up to the Weldon big boy fuel pump on Monday... Don't want to run short... and we can still hit it with a 150-250 shot of nitrous with the stand alone system... That will net some serious HP and spool the turbos a bit faster... as will opening the exhaust up...

And for a different perspective, here is an out the trunk view... It didn't quite show the way I wanted, but still worth watching...

1330 RWHP from the trunk...

We have the new 5 BAR MAP sensor installed, and as soon as we finish up with Arnolds Vette, Brandi goes back on the dyno for some more tweaking...

We will leave and drive down there sometime Thursday afternoon / evening... It all depends on when we finish up everything.... and I don't think they'll have any problem with what you bring in. There is a huge amount of parking space.... Are you bringing the old car as well as the new one... ???

So, in the interest of checking the new MAP sensor, we made one pull this morning, and all is good...

We will have V.3 of the ProEFI loaded up Monday and set up a few things, traction control etc... then be ready to get the alignment stuff taken care of, and off to the Texas Mile...

Can there be too much power... Well yes and no....

Too much power no, too much for a given situation, uh huh...

We pulled the boost down to around 20 lbs, and made a pull.... It got knarly pretty quickly... and no, we have not tried the nitrous yet.... We'll use that at the mile, but since it is a full stand alone system, all we have to do for that is install the bottles, heat em up, and turn it on..... We are still sitting on a 150 shot, which ought to net well over 200 additional rwhp....

I'm towing the SS & my Rhino out from California. I've been told its cool to bring Rhino's or golf carts to get around. Is that correct? Its only been a year since my accident, I don't like to walk a few miles a day yet. If not I have a pit bike I could bring out.

Yes, you can bring a golf cart or the Rhino, there are also golf carts on site for rental... You can ride from one end of the track to the other, and right up to the start area.... I bring my little 49 cc pit bike, and rent a golf cart... for the crew and have my truck with a tow rope if needed as well....

Here is the latest... It stops at 1200 hp as that is as high as this dyno will record...

The ProEFI has an onboard dyno and it showed 1330 hp...

Closest hotel I found is only 30 minutes away... not bad. Only thing in the air is my new tires... had to find a second source. Hopefully I get the new shoes put on. If so I will roll in early Saturday morning. Robert is coffee on your list?
