I sure hope so. After Rhino's run I think there's hope. This should get us up around 550 RWHP without being so close to running out of fuel. If we can get the lauch issue fixed I should do well on both ends of the track.

May not get it on the dyno today. Having some issues getting the solenoid to stay open with the relay we bought. The controller for the meth kit pulses and that's freaking out the relay. Ryan and I are discussing options.

So you can get a 500+ rwhp new car for what? 30k? (if you got the base model of the lfx)

...or is there way more than 7-10k into this?

just wondering, because this is awesome.

sorry if you think its impolite to ask. You do have the right not to answer lol.

No problem. It is really getting hard to tell what all of this will cost. I'm footing some of the bill trying to figure out the issues, but future builders won't have to do that. Here's some ball park numbers for the parts (top of my head so don't hold me to this)

Forged Pistons -- $1,500
Custom Intake System -- $400-500
EFR Turbos -- $3,000 for two
Piping -- $300-400
Boost Controller -- $200
Wide Band -- $150
ZL1 Fuel Pump -- $260
Intercooler -- $800
Meth Kit -- $600

So, that's about $7,500 just for the parts. Then you have to get it all installed and have it tuned. If you want to put that power to the ground then there's all the suspension upgrades and better tires. If you have an auto then you'll probably want a torque converter and a new differential. You might be able to get everything you need to run low 11s in the 1/4, including labor, for somewhere between $15,000 and $18,000. That would make a 2LS, car included, around $40K.

I'm sure there is something I forgot. Oh, and if you want to run more than 500 RWHP SAFELY, you will want the new fuel system we are working on. Don't know how much that will be.

For the v8 differential + axle, probably another $1,500 or so.

Definitely not going to get it on the dyno tonight. We've decided to use the MAF frequency to trigger the solenoid. That will require a 5V referenced window switch and a different relay. Aaron's trying to find the parts and get them overnighted. So, tomorrow is a possiblity, but more than likely it will be the week after he gets back (3/25).

Okay, looks like we are going to have to get the controller custom made. It won't be much $$$, but they probably can't get it to us until Monday. Dyno will definitely be postponed until the week of 3/25.

Add another $100 bucks to the build........LOL. Sometimes you just have to take control and build what cha need. Hope it all goes well and we get some new results from you soon. Everyone is just getting itchy to get out from under the winter blues and see what the mods will do.
