If clearance looks good may have to hit you up Derrick for cost on that intake.

No real targets, just hoping it will be more reliable than the last one. If we get enough fuel then we should be able to do over 500 RWHP, but that's a big IF at this point.

Unfortunately, we had to cut a cross member out and fab up a new one. I don't think most people are going to be willing to do that.

I know exactly which one was cut out. Mine aint a DD so adding a strut bar and a thick but thin solid metal bar would also help. Because the cross members are hollow so that should be more than enough. When I take my car apart soon I'll look into it.

Okay, here's the small update I have.

Drivetrain is back in the car and Ryan took it for a little spin yesterday. Still having some oiling issues with the turbos and it is showing some KR at 10 psi. We haven't put the cooler plugs in or really started tuning it, just wanted to make sure it started and ran okay and there weren't any leaks. Sounds like it's running pretty good so far. I should be over at the shop Monday afternoon and we can start tuning in earnest. This may take a few days, but everything is looking promising. No problem getting fuel to it at 10 psi, BTW, so we may have solved that problem. EFI did say they were seeing problems with KR on this ECU, so Ryan and Aaron may have to work with them to resolve that issue.

This is getting good. So there is a work around for fuel on the lfx. Can it work for the llt?

We hope we have the fuel issue licked, but we really haven't pushed her yet. That will come Monday. What we did was put a ZL1 pump in the tank and it looks like the HPFP on the LFX may be a little better. The big thing is the ability to tune it. Don't put much stock in the PSI we are running as a measure of when we run out of fuel. We lowered the CR, which should reduce the amount of power somewhat. We may not make anymore power at 10 psi than we did at 8-9 with the LLT, but it should be more reliable.

Sorry, but no dyno pull today. Do have some new shots of the setup.
