Hit about 500 once, but it was really breaking up bad. Pulled some additional timing out of it and were able to get a fairly consistent 440-450 RWHP on 9 psi.

Having one turbo replaced and another checked for seal damage. Have the same baffle issues you have and it's backing up even with a -10 setup on the system at times. Getting things ready to get the rebuild going. Also need to reconnect the meth kit as I haven't used it since the controller went bad lol. And Vince hasn't been much help as I'm running AFR's at 10.8 at WOT. I found a trick playing with the spark plugs gapping also.

That's good man. Do need to get that AFR fixed. We found you could run the LFX pretty lean and still not get any knock (gotta love DI). Hope the rebuild goes well, keep us up-to-date on the progress. Time to get several 450-500 RWHP V6s.

Nice build Gretchin. We added a ZL1 pump in tank as well. Depending on the popularity of these engines we may develop a HPFP that is belt drivin.

Seriously thinking of lower my compression and adding a zl1 fuel pump. But then again the tune may be a issue.

Not sure how close we were to maxing out the lift pump on the LLT, but can't hurt to be safe. Lowering the CR with forged pistons is probably the biggest thing to make it safe.

Track rental is tentatively scheduled for next Wednesday (1/31/2013). Ryan's driving it around for the next couple of days to make sure there are no issues. Hope this pic of the new stripes will hold everyone over until we have some results.

Car looks awesome. Did you lower only the front though? And what wheels are those? Are they smaller than 20 in? If so they look really good on the car.

Didn't lower it. The 2012+ have the some shared suspension parts with the SS and ride about 0.5" lower.

And no, now they aren't enough traction.

Those COPO stripes? thats actually fitting! haha

So ok, im trying to get a basic simple picture here, the only difference we see between this and the LLT is the ability to tune and fuel? I know you guys lowered CR to be safe. Just trying to remember. figure out what the major differences are between this build and the last and why we got those beauitful jaw dropping numbers

Look at it as a postponement and not a cancelled game. When he gets back you guy will both be so eager to get to it you won't waste any time.

Latest update. Barring rain/sleet/snow, we have the track rental for next Wednesday. Should be fun. Ryan will have is cammed SS, hopefully with his new gears. Another friend from GPI may bring his nostalgia dragster. My frend Bob (may have met him at CFest), may bring his Vette or 55. Hopefully Aaron will be able to take some video.

I'll be running the street setup (Nitto 555 Extreme) for the first few runs. If all goes then we'll put the Slicks/Skinnies on it and remove the front sway bar. Ryan will also be using my Slicks/Skinnies to see if he can improve on his last time with this cold air.

The countdown has started. Will it be the end of the 6L50?

The 6l50 is holding well. I have ya a 25% duty cycle tune and 50% duty cycle tune done for 93 and 101 octane. Once we can control the violent boost spike that the controller cant react quick enough for, we'll be set. Anxious to see how it does leaving off of a couple lbs of boost, and yes it will build 2-3 psi on the footbrake at about 2200-2500 rpm
