I'll let you guys drive my car, I built it to lend out to the forum, its my way of giving back, I can let everyone know what it feels like to drive a 1000+ rwhp.




Only rule is you can't leave my driveway!

So, the wiring for the new additional fuel pump is completed, and the new head gaskets should be delivered on or about the 4th of December....

Hopefully it wont be too long and I'll be able to take Brandi back out on the road.... at a reduced power of about 900-950 rwhp....

Weve also removed the AMS 1000 boost controller, and lots of other wiring no longer needed....

Heck, just ask, most of the time Im just as lost.... but someone around here will know....

Why an additional fuel pump.... At the power we were running, we were on the edge of the capacity of the big weldon external pump we are using... When we blew off the vacumn hose at the mile, the car spiked thirty lbs of boost and went lean on one bank. The injectors were not max'ed out, but the pump was.... so the lean condition....

To ensure that doesnt happen again, we are adding another big weldon external pump for safety... It will only come on at say 10-20 lbs of boost... and run wide open to back up the primary pump.... This will prevent any possibility of a lean condition due to losing boost reference...

We will also be running all boost reference back to the intake manifold rather than the various t fittings and things there have been....

I would not have lifted the head if the motor hadn't gone lean on the one bank...

Cool, are you going to be here all weekend? It's a busy car weekend...Friday is dyno day at LMR for the Camaro/corvette shootout participants, then coffee & cars Saturday morning, H-town Camaro club open house at Oracle lighting Sat night and then Sundays shootout...autocross in the AM, 1/4 mile in the PM.

Can't beat that.
