Go for it. See what you can do the rest of the season and then think about cam in the Spring.

Here you go, this is the range for WOT:

Views: 422
Size:  52.4 KB

Note how it drops to 20* at peak torque. This is where you are most likely to get Knock Reduction. Also keep in mind that during a run, it's operating in the 3800-6200 range because of the shifts at WOT.

When I used one can of Torco to 5 gallons on a cool night (low 60's), I added one degree of timing safely. I was going to add two but the track went to pot.

Would you mind explaining a little bit of what the air mass is? I got the wife talked into letting (lol) me get the hp tuners software, but looking at that graph....it's a little daunting not knowing what it means

I went talked to my tuner and he said my timing is as high as he will put it. He said its in the 24-25* range. Which I'll agree, it's high enough. I didn't drive my car to work today but he said when I bring it to him we can do some data logs and make sure it's not pulling timing and see what my air fuel is. The guys at thunder racing had already heard what my car ran the first time out and they are anxious to help me attain my bolt on goal of 11.99 or quicker. I'm gonna bring it there sometime this week and see what's what.

+48/+11 ... about what I was expecting.

Note for the dyno numbers:
- both runs were with TC locked.
- both STD corrected (SAE is about -5hp).
- 376 run was with 18" rims and DR's.
revved to 6200
- 424 run was with stock 20x9 and 275's.
revved to 6800.

So I imagine you know I work with Omar, right? Lol. We were talking about sonnys car the other day as a matter of fact. I know I can do it with a convertor, but at the moment I'm having some issues hooking it. I don't want to add to my problem and go slower you know? I got some nittos on the way, removing the front sway, I'm hooking up a fan switch this week and mike at thunder is gonna tweak my tune. We think we can get a tad more out of it. I'm hoping to get in the 11's with no convertor. If it won't do it without the stall then so be it. But I'm gonna try my darnedest!

You should get your 11 sec slip now! Ima guess 11.60@ 117. Good luck!


Wow....I was pretty close! Hit the mph dead on. Lol. Good job. You'll get some 60's and maybe some 50's out of it. Pssst.....maybe try some long tubes. If you don't pick up any....we can lay the long tune thing to rest.

That would be awesome, but doing it without a converter is a pretty tall order.

I'll be in Darlington, SC for the East Coast Shootout - GM IRS cars, lots of GTO's.

So I'll be getting some times for this new setup soon. I'm also moving up from Nitto 555R's to Mickey Thompson ET Street II's, so I expect to HOOK!

Well I'm hoping to get close. I think if padre would have kept at it he would have got there. I have a few little tricks up my sleeve. I'm not the average hot rodder lol. I had a daily driven third gen that ran mid 11's at mid 120's trap speed. That was 11 years ago. Beating up on the ls1 cars lol. I feel that my first time out with the few little things I've done and it ran a 12.43 spinning...I think I can knock it down a little. Don't hurt to try.

I can't wait to see what padre's car runs now !

Padre - Great car and look forward to meeting you at the shootout. I went the 555r route for the time being just to get through the shootout. 18s will be coming in the spring.

Waiting for qualifying.

Best: 11.769 @ 117.40, 1.704, 7.579 @ 92.94.
DA was 334.

Backed it w/ a 11.795 @ 116.39, and two 11.9's

Mainly working on shift points and hooking.

Lot's of fast cars!

Well, I just don't have it in me to lift. 2nd round in the brackets and I was ahead of my competition. I thought "lift so I don't break out or ride it for a new PB?"

You can guess my answer:

11.731 @ 117.58, 1.695, 7.547 @ 93.24



So I lost the bracket.

Thanks guys, I met+ my goals, so happy.

Race weight w/ me, no pass seat, 1/4 tank:
3905 (3745 w/o me)

I ran the stock battery. The Braille would have brought me to 3720.

Loves the top end now.

Pulls hard all the way to 7000.

I was trying to get it to shift in the 6600-6800 range. Eventually I succeeded. Tunig the shift points just got a whole lot more complicated.
