Most speed/race shops sell it along with methanol.

Wow great job D, you would've had these great numbers 2+ years ago if the LLT was up to snuff!

So really just turbos, fuel pump, and a good tune? The reason you couldnt hit 500 on the LLT was because of the tuning problems? Sorry if these are dumb questions, a lot of stuff to keep up with!

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).

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).
