Camaro won't start PLEASE Help

Hey guys i am from Australia i posted on here a while ago that i was going to be getting a camaro. Have just run into a problem with my 2010 2ss camaro. I was hoping someone might know what could be wrong with it. I was driving home about ten minutes after filling up with 95 unleaded the engine just cut out, since then I have not been able to start it. The engine turns over but doesnt start, I am getting two error codes P023F and P069e. I tried to clear them and they come back as soon as I try to start the engine. It was tuned via hp tuner. My mods are below, car has done about 2000miles. The only work that was done on it earlier that day was the xforce header.

Edelbrock Supercharger running the smaller 3.5inch pulley and belt
JRE LS3 Smooth Idle Blower Cam Package
L99 to LS3 Conversion Kit
Rotofab E-force Cold Air Intake
Dual Fuel Pump (ASE Turbo, Australian company)
1 Kooks and 1 xforce headers ( changed due to hitting steering collum for right hand drive)
Borla Stinger Catback

Any help would be greatly appreciated?

Video Link of when it worked

looks like bad fuel pump

i highly recommend not having two different brands of headers on. they need to be equal length, especially because you are boosted

Fuel pump.

Different headers = bad idea since you're boosted bud.

I would 100% buy matching sets of headers.

Do you have any boost gauges? Or fuel pressure gauges?

This car was designed in Australia then they decided not to release this car here, they are very rare with a price tag of over $100,000.

Get a real boost gauge, and AFR gauge and possibly a fuel pressure gauge.

Your car is clearly not very cheap and you have substantial amount of money invested. They're like --- $120-150 a piece and they're invaluable.

Your cars fuel pump seems to have crapped out or something. The codes it's throwing are fuel pump related. How much are you boosting?

Where did u get the cable? Need one for my iPad. Also. Agree with the fuel pump. Possibility of bad gas but doesn't usually happen with 95 octane

95 octane is roughly 91~ outside the US.


OP I'd recommend water meth or octane booster every fill up. Here we have 95 octane and its roughly a 89-91 (think of a crappy US 91 octane)... Pretty much a death trap if you're running a blower without using octane booster or water meth. I'm ordering a stage 3 water meth this week before my blower goes on. We use a simple 50% liquor (40% alc) / 50% pure 98% alcohol mix. Gives you an octane of about 106ish.

Could i get away with just using 98?

Will do have my eyes set on adm one which sits above the steering wheel. From memory on the dyno it was around 8 psi. Havent had a chance to see if the kiwi wifi reads boost yet (works on my colorado) I have pretty much had the car for a week before it died. Here is a picture of the old girl

I just wouldn't trust pump gas man. Boosting with bad gas = bad. Invest $400 in a stage 2 water meth kit or start using octane booster.

My buddy just blew up 4 pistons in his Cobra because he was boosting 13psi with bad gas. Detonation detonation detonation. If he would've had water meth it would've never happened.
