Very nice build thread! I love the car and the power The lugs should be acorn, as I'm sure OEM's are acorn. The lugs that came with my Camaro wheels are acorn.

Thanks man! Pretty good for a safe tune on very mild A/F.

I think you're right....thanks for the "chart".

it's pretty much @ 10 all the way across the powerband and increases a lil towards the very end (set my redline DOWN to 6400 due to boost peaking @ 12 in cold weather) Like to have less bost and better A/F (11.6) and maybe even gain some power. Will be retuning in the next 30 says or so.

New tune confirmed for 29 Mar! This will be a new tuner as my A/F is WAY off (10.0 or less all the way across until the very end) and target is normally 11.6ish. This tuner (Performance AutoSports) is local and 100 miles closer anyways and have a great reputation so I'll be going there.

I got a baseline dyno from them a few weeks ago and it showed (547/511) vs what I originally had from the other dyno/tuner (577/578) with no changes. So something isnt right.
The car feels like it is hesitating at low speeds/RPMs so let's hope things get worked out :P Possible my FIC850 injectors are simply just too big for this build? Low pulse still might be too much? Time and tune will tell

Rockers did not get done today so it will be next week :P

BUT....

I did get my tune fixed at a new shop:
Steve @ Performance Autosports in Richmond VA:

The blue pull is my "baseline" dyno from a few weeks ago (547/511)....this is after my initial base to from someone else that showed 577/578 a few months ago.

The green pull had the best #'s but had a couple blips to fix

The red pull was the last pull and all the small "issues" with my original tune were worked out. The A/F was way rich and the car was hesitating @ initial throttle.

One the same dyno(after the original tune in NC) with very similar days....from original tune to new tune from Steve @ Performance Autosports....you can see the huge gain across the powerband.....
(30-60WHP and 20-80WTQ....depending on what RMP you reference)


Aside from just the #'s......the throttle response is better and it just seems to run "smoother" I guess.

What did you use to black out your lights and where did you get it? Looking good btw. That Cog sounds awesome in your vids. I think you just made me have to give Jessika more of my money.

Was that your first plasti-dip? I've never tried it. How was it? Does it spray on even and smooth?

No, I've done a couple things before. Here are a couple more for your review :P As little as arms distance they look really smooth.


Up REALLY close you can see it's not as smooth but it still looks good:

Do what? Plasti-dip? Replace the bezels? Put the Phasetek tint kit on?
