RX TT V6 on "GRETCHEN" Quick Review

Let me start off with a exactly what I said (Tracy can attest to this as well as my fiance) when it was at the top end of 3rd gear and than it REALLY KICKED IN "HOLLLLLLLLLLY SHIIIIIIIIIT"-This is a direct quote from me at 1230 this afternoon!

Tracy was trying to get the boost gauge where he wanted it and was making sure everything was dialed in right before it goes back to the proud owner of this beast (Gretchsgotgrowl) back to Arkansas. I was there (Thank God!) getting my Ported TB and Catch-can for mine and I saw/admiring her sitting there. He said " I have to take her out in a little bit to dial it in, want to go?" Really?!? Seriously!?? HELL YES!!!!!

If any of you are considering a Twin Turbo for your V6, stop hesitating and get it to Tracy (Sponsor-SC1250).

This thing is so smooth while moving along with traffic, and from what we could see in the MPG 31.4 when I rolled it over...

You let the pedal hit the floor, and my quote says it all......

My fiance was in the back seat and was asking me how a V6 floored her more than my SS...lmao, hard to explain to a non-car enthusiast to say the least, basically I got punked lol.


RX TT is the real deal..........

Gretchensgotgrowl, you're one lucky sob! She is awesome!

When you are ready, this is the only way to go. The dedication to this car, it shows he truly cares about what goes in it, that to me is worth every penny.

I'm supposed to be going to San Antonio later this summer (I know, what at time to pick), so keep reminding and I'll try to schedule something.

How much power is 6 putting down?

Any plans on upping it? From what I remember that one guy blew his engine up at 8?

Don't know about the power because we haven't done a dyno in a while. Probably around 420 RWHP or so. Plan to eventually up it to around 10-12 psi when we have the new fuel system. We have a wide band and are running it rich for now to avoid those kind of issues.

Motor will handle 10-11 PSI with the tune and fuel delivery done correctly. We also upgraded the timing chains/gears in Gretchen so there were no weak links.

I think the failures to date were tune/fuel issues.

I just took it for a little spin with HDRS who stopped in for a visit and I upped it to 7 PSI with good fuel/meth. I'll let him post up his impressions.

I'm sorry you'll be here in the heat, but I'm excited. I would love to see your car in person!

The local Camaro club meets on Fridays, so maybe you can swing by if you're in town long enough.

Turns out the event is now going to be in Austin and looks like April (thank God). How this all works out. Even if it doesn't, at worst we could come down in the Fall. The wife has lots of friends in Ausin and SA. I know it is real close for you guys, but we could maybe meet somewhere northwest of Austin.

Sounds like HDRS made it down for a test drive. Hopefully he'll give his impressions. I just want to say, not fair the competition gets to drive my car and I don't get to drive his. Just kidding of course.

Yeah I had the pleasure I think it was over the summer, can't imagine what it is like now. Don't know if I will get the chance to try again, but here's hopin'. Tough part is I just get jealous. Someday... Someday

I do appreciate the fact you gave up your car so that Tracy could make these strides for our car, huge deal to the LLT community.

There's plenty of time for you to go over and drive it again. The heads won't be finished until March.

As soon as it gets back I'll plan to come up there again. I'll see if I can talk Bob into driving his vette or the '55 this time. Then we'll have three bad ass chevies to go cruise in.
