Yeah, it is really nice to be able to tune it.

We lowered the compression ratio as well. Might have been able to make this power with the higher CR, but why not lower it a bit if you are getting forged pistons anyway, you know?

We hoped to have everything wrapped up this week, but Aaron need to redesign the crankcase evac system. Should get that finished today and tested tomorrow.

They did do some street tuning and it made 1.5 psi more boost with the intake cover pointed foward than it made on the dyno. Ram air anyone?

Last pull was just shy of 550 RWHP (still waiting on the graph), again with no vacuum and an unlocked converter, so on the track it should make a bit more. That's about it for the HPFP, so Aaron is working on something to get around that, but it is a month or two down the road.

Hopefully we can do a track rental in early February to test the changes to my car and Ryan's. It will be a 1000' track, but that's better than nothing. (Memphis opens about a month, so hopefully I can get over there by March).

550 RWHP........now that is impressive as HELL. you are certainly going to catch a many of V8 people by surprise at the track with this set-up. Can't wait to hear how she does at the track.

Anyone that can't appreciate a 700 horsepower V6 is a D-Bag. A true car guy should be able to appreciate good performance in any package. I know I do.

But thats a whole other subject lol

What kind of evac system are you going to ? There are a few different ideas out there.

I agree and I'm sure 99% of the folks on the forum do too. However, why put it out there so the 1% can cause trouble. Just more work for Tran and the mods...work they can be doing on the Corvette7.com site (check it out if you haven't already).

Similar to what we had on the LLT. It uses a belt driven pump. We are pulling from the dirty side with breathers for the oil filler cap and the "clean" side. Doing some extra baffling for the "clean" side. Both breathers will allow you to adjust the amount of air flow, and we have a regulator between the pump and the secondary catchcan to adjust the vacuum. On the street we can run near zero vacuum and at the track we can adjust it to whatever works best. Just haven't figured out the best vacuum yet.

Yeah, wish I could have figured it all out on Gretchen, but sometimes you just have to start from square one. How's you car doing?

Yeah, I didn't think we'd get there that quickly. Once the motor was back in the car things came together really quickly. Now they are just tying up the loose ends (and waiting on parts)...you know, all the stuff that is a lot less fun than seeing it put down the power.

One thing about the LFX....that intake sure ain't purty lol. Gotta use an engine cover with those things.

Just being safe given we are going to pull a good vacuum on it at the track. We were getting so much oil going through the baffle that when we put a vacuum on it was gushing through the catchcan and maxing out the oil return system. That lead to oil backing up in the turbos. So, we have done what we can to not pull oil out with the vacuum and the first catch can will pick up what we do, then the second can should catch the vapors and keep everything nice and clean.
