Ah man I'm still not right from this sleepless trip LOL. Going to track tonight with Baylor again..

However, this car was AWESOME to drive. Jaime installed everything right to specification, no belt slip, trans feels great. The car is just a GREAT over the road driver, and then when you kick it sets you back. Really happy with this one, but I will say this is one of the one's that keep me honest nowadays. Having completed thousands upon thousands of tunes on numerous platforms, you need to get your butt kicked once in a while

Props to Jrrod, great installation along with Junior!

We already left KMAGRIZZ with another smaller SC pulley... Talking about more mods already, I told him drive the damn thing enjoy it and I'll make another trip out in another few months..

Also thanks to the entire Phastek team there, very helpful, they stayed open after business hours to accommodate me. Also I had to use it again on Friday Sean texted me come on over I can have it anytime.

Why is the MAF zip tied? And it seems like the LFX uses a different MAF than the LLT. I wonder if this MAF flows better than the LLT version? Looks like the V8 MAF from the looks of the connector.

I'm not talking for everybody since I still use the stock compsite maf housing but high boost pops the maf out of the socket...I ziptied my maf after a boost leak test showed the maf popped out slightly after 8psi.

Damn really? I've boosted up to 13psi's when my and Tracy test drove it and a month after that until i lowered it to 6. And this didn't show it's face. But will do it regardless as it does make sense!! Thanks for the tip PT_killa.

Did you ever leak out of the fuel purge valve? Mines would leak consistently at exactly 10 psi... (for those who don't know, it's the valve on the left side of the IM near the 4th or 5th spark plug coil. The valve connects to the vacuum port near the throttle body).

That's our new re-designed MAF bung... duhhh !!!

Actually, we are waiting on the CNC MAF bungs for the LFX's right now. Jrrod modified that LLT housing and zip-tied the MAF in. It's not pretty, but it works for now. We should see the CNC'd pieces next week so we can ship a matte black pipe out to KMAGRIZZ

No I never had a issues with that when I was boosting 11-13 for that month. Only issue me and Tracy ran into was blowing my original MAF on the first 1/8 of a mile of testing lmao! After we replaced it that night everything was good.

Those are not zip ties..............those are racing stripes


And yes, different MAF from the LLT and from the SS. This LFX MAF sensor has 8 pins going to it. I've never seen one with this many pins, so not sure what else is in there. Most I've ever seen is 6 pins and those are back in the day. Most nowadays have either 5 pins or 3 pins

Lmao those stripes add any HP? I may need some lol. I have a feeling that that MAF allows for more air to flow on the LFX. As of this week my car is parked as I'm waiting for my 3rd MAF to arrive.

FYI: if you can wait 5-7 days GMPartsDirect has the MAF for $43.46. Dealer price was $84, The only upside was that you can have it next day.

These do not add power. However I have some a little wider that do add a little kick

You and Baylor should get a pallet of MAF sensors and split them between you two

Well I was running 11-13psi's in March-April when me and Tracy first installed this current MAF. That's what did all the damage. But after mid April I turned it down to 3psi's then upped it to 6psi's in May. So this new one should last now!

Went to the track last night, didn't expect this to happen but my car ran a 14.25- 2.2 60'. Noticed an issue with the throttle response on the burnout and when launching, felt like it was bogging down when you mash the gas. Thought it was weird bc i had TC and stabiltrack turned off. I let Alex run it and it did the same thing to him. Well this morning I tried launching the car without turning anything off and low a behold she launches hard. Kinda funny how its doing the opposite, should have tried this last night. I wonder if it can be changed in the tune.

Ya it was very weird. I couldn't spin in the water lol. And I try to launch at 2500rpms but it acted like it was "governed" at 1800rpms

Hmm that is quite weird.. We spoke earlier and I think I'll be heading back out to Houston in a couple of weeks so I can do logging and see what the throttle is doing at the track. Few spirited street runs it was fine on it

Oh well, we'll work out the bugs. That 60' should be an easy 1.8 with the converter & s/c.

Fuel pump is not an issue so far on the LFX. We installed the o/d pulley a while back and made 11 psi. Andrew did re-enforce the bracket to hold up to the extra load. I believe Tracy is working with Trifecta to try some different tunes and see if it helps or not.
