Off topic, but did you get your drive shaft correctly measured?

Matt has the correct measurements, it's being machined now.

Incorrect.. I just asked you for the V8 stock vs. V6 stock measurements which you reported collapsed were 54" for V6 and 51.5" for V8. I was just asking you after the shaft was made for some measurements to compare with some other misinformation here on the boards.

The actual 1pc shaft, I measured it incorrectly the first time around (Don't know how but I missed 1.5" on the 1pc shaft), and Jason from Phastek actually gave us the correct measurement of 59.5".

Thank you both for your information in this.

Great info guys. When you are done getting it machined can you post the weights of the current two-piece solution and the new single for comparison purposes?

Yeah. I imagine it will be very similar in weight to the other 1 piece shafts that they make. If so the alum shaft weights 2 lbs less. Not that big of a difference but one thing you have to remember is it is a 1 piece and is more efficient.

Shop at work has been backed up for the past two weeks. Good for business not good for my situation. Here are the pictures of my new bracket with the old broken one. It is made out of 316 stainless steel 1:1 scale as the broken bracket that came with the system. To ensure there are no stress risers anywhere in the piece, it was smoothed out with a grinder and then machine polished. The pictures do not do it justice, it has a mirrored finished almost. The guy that has been doing our polishing and grinding has been doing it over a decade. Only took him about 15 mins to polish it like that.

I have however run into yet another issue. The metal pulley on the tensioner is eating up the belt. I noticed this a couple months ago but it wasnt anything major, I could just tell one side of the belt was fraying and being eaten. Well today I talked to J-Rod6410 (Jamie) who did the install for v6owner and KMAGRIZZ apparently he saw the same issue with KMAGRIZZ's set up and had to switch to a plastic pulley rather than metal. However v6owner never had this issue. Very strange. Stay tuned for more details.

Now to remake all of the brackets under the hood to look that good. Nice work on the part. I am getting ready to turn over some mock up parts I made for the bike this weekend to my machinest. Hope they come back looking like that. I will be happy happy.

Thanks for all the compliments everyone. Sure is a shame this piece is tucked away under the hood.

So I have a new situation, who's really surprised at this point though? lol

I installed the new bracket on the system, however for whatever reason it started eating the outside edge of the belt (side farthest from the engine). I thought maybe I installed something wrong, didn't tighten something, operator error etc. So I got a new belt put it on, seemed like it might be ok, took it for a test drive and heard the belt making some awful noise less than 15 miles into the drive. I poped the hood and it turned out the backside of the belt (smooth side, not ribbed side) was getting worn down really fast. I got back to my house and it looked like the pulley wasn't aligned perfectly and was a couple millimeters off, the outside edge of the pulley started to ride the belt and acted like a pizza cutter slicing pieces of belt off.

I talked to Tracy and he sent me the old version of the pulley (made of plastic not metal) we thought maybe this would fix it, unfortunately same exact issue. I tried buying a slightly narrower belt (5 ribs vs 6 ribs) thinking this may help the issue. As soon as you turn the engine over the belt rides to the side of the tensioner pulley that was eating the original belt.

I cannot shim the pulley because it would shim it the wrong direction. However the tensioner has a slight lip where it bolts to the new bracket I made. I took a dremel and filed down that lip and took a steel file to smooth the edge. I installed the tensioner Sunday and so far so good.

HOWEVER it looks like the backside of the belt (side opposite of the ribbed side) appears to be wearing. This is the side that the tensioner rides on, so could it be the tensioner is too tight? Maybe this is normal wear on a new belt for the set up? I don't know as I never paid this close attention to it the first time I got the car set up.

I've always had an issue with the outside edge (1 rib) being eaten. However once that edge was worn down it was OK.

Anyways here's a quick video I took to test the tensioner. As you can see my AFR goes rich in 3rd-6th gear. Something I'll have to adjust later.

Yup, that is the next thing if it turns out I haven't solved the issue.

Well the first shaft was actually too short. Took it to Phastek to get remeasured, shaft is waiting at Phastek as we speak. I've contacted Phastek a couple times now to try and schedule an appointment to get it installed but no dice.

However I just got a message from Matt, he's thinking these measurements might be off too... Guess we'll see soon.

*UPDATE*

I think the belt is fine, I took some measuring calipers and measured the belt and then compared the measurements to a brand new belt and they are within .01" of each other.

I changed the gape in my spark plugs, going down from .037 to .035. The engine still seems to break up around 6,100 rpms in 3-6 gear, as seen in the video below. AFR goes rich in 3-6 gear as well. Looks like I just need to work out the tune.

My first autocross event!

My best time was 50.3, the best run on the course was 44.xx by a 1LE Camaro. I was able to keep up with the SS's (for the most part), so I was happy.

Very cool!

That looks like one of the least confusing layouts I've seen, with the laid over cones pointing which way to go! I've watched a number of auto-x vids and I sit there wondering how in the world do you know which way to go in that big sea of cones! LOL!

Great job!

After my first run it was very easy to understand. Very very tight turns, it was very deceiving. It looks like you can carry a lot of speed into the turns and S turns but that definitely wasn't the case. A few people found out the hard way by eating some cones.
