Hopefully he'll call you today. I left him as he was running to ACE for a few bolts to mount IC. He's doing a few different things to mount it particularly at the top. As i mentioned, he's cutting a breathe-through slot in the crash bar to free up airflow. I'm curious to see how that fabrication turns out because his work is generally very clean and factory looking.

My installer (Jon) is fabricating some mounting brackets to secure the IC up top. He's utilizing the hidden stock bottom air scoop that feeds the factory radiator from underneath so the IC can nestle into it yet it still can function as intended as much as possible. The IC will be secured by 4 brackets as well as the fluid lines. His pully puller didn't work so he had to get another one with sleeker clasps.

Once he gets the stock pully off and the SC pully on then he'll be mounting the V3 and then installing the piping. We're waiting on my catchcan to hopefully arrive tomorrow. The time consumer so far has been that pully as they're torqued to 250 lbs. And the metal drop door to his shop getting jammed so he couldn't leave to go get the other pulley....lol...it's always the mundane stuff like that that kills you. Lol. The other time consumer is the slotted crash brace that he's fabricating to increase air flow. Tracy you did get my VIN for the tune, yes?

Yes I did. Vince is off today and Mondy, so expect it Tue.

Are you auto trans or manual?

And I'm anxious to see if Jon has improvements///the crash bar can be perforated w/out loosing much strentgh. we will implement anything that makes the system better quickly in future kits.

Update: Finally got that freaking pulley off. A big thanks to Pinegar Chevrolet for letting us borrow the crank pulley puller. Took 5 mins to change out. LOL. Cept Jon smacked his hand real hard on the TB tightening the pulley bolt.

BTW, I have the tweener pulley. The step up from the base pulley. 7, 8 #'s of boost. Looks like I'll be getting that meth kit.

When I first got the SC installed I was pushing 8 psi of boost, and once Vince toyed with it, I got up to 10 psi of boost. Hopefully Tracy can comment on this, I'm wondering if my pulley is the same as yours, or if it is indeed the smaller pulley.

Well we are at a bit of a standstill at the moment. Waiting on my catchcan that FedEx decided they needed to hold in Memphis for a whole day on a 2 day shipping order and the tune from Trifecta-Vince is off today. Tracy is also overnighting a few parts that got mixed up in my kit. Partly my fault for scaling my build back to basic from what I had originally spec'd out.

The important thing here is that we get the build right and that it is something that adds to and not detracts from the driver experience.

Despite hitting a few snags, I'm excited about this build. Jon will be attacking this again tomorrow late in the afternoon.

What boost number have you settled on for the time being?

Still at 10. I have been extremely busy with work and have hardly had time to deal with my car. Thank God Smoke sent his down to Tracy to get things "figured out" because I really don't have the time I thought I would..

Yeah the tuning thing is definitely a crazy thing with these LLT's. We'll see if this guy from Michigan is fer reals...I hope so.

Update: finally broke down and told the missus where my car was and what was going on it. Wasn't too bad. She's definitely not worshipping me though.

Umm well I just told her that it was getting a few things looked at. Jon has worked on my cars a lot. But we hit some snags so it's going to be down a little longer than we thot. Can't really cover for that. In a perfect world my car would have been running data logs by 5pm today. LOL

If I would have had a couple days notice I could have rearranged my schedule and gone up to Oscoda.... My gut reaction though is this guy is yanking everyone's chain.. sorry, there just isn't anyone in this area that is going to be able to deal with / tune an LLT... perhaps I'm wrong... but I'm certainly not holding my breathe.. Now if he said he sent his car down to Detroit... then I would be more inclined to give him the benefit of the doubt...

Did that thread get really nasty or something? It seems to be totally gone and the user is gone to. I figured he was just BSing us, didn't really think he was a troll.
