Small mods.....

Got a couple of small mods done this weekend, one of which will facilitate the blower install later, the other was more "decorative"...

Exhaust install

So, finally replaced the mutated factory pipes. I installed a polished 3" system with high-flow cats. It doesn't have the same volume of sound that the other setup had. It mellowed the tone some as well as reducing the dB level a little...until you stick your foot in it!

Also ordered the ZL1 fuel pump, ZL1 fuel pump controller module, as well as a reservoir to seperate the clutch from the brake reservoir.

Coming along nicely. It's funny that the supercharger is cheap when you start adding up all the little stuff you need to turn the bad boy up

Might want to start thinking about what clutch you want to go with as well. Mine was slipping pretty bad on 550hp with my first setup.

Yep, been looking at various clutches. What are you running now? I was thinking about a single disc setup.

Mcloed RXT twin disc.

I don't think there are any single discs around that can handle over 600hp. The highest HP camaro in the state is running the same clutch and it's holding up to his power. The pedal feel is actually softer than stock. I really like it. no more burnt clutch smell either.

The frustration...

Sooo, I replaced the stock SS fuel pump last night with the ZL1 pump, and ran into a little snag. The front right rear suspension crossmember bolt came out about 3/4 then stopped cold. Tried my 1/2" impact, but the bolt just laughed. I tried my 30" 1/2" breaker bar, the bolt turned, but required serious effort. I finally ended up using the handle from my Craftsman floor jack in conjunction with my 1/2" ratchet to finish removing it. This is what I discovered...

Tuning Dynograph

Well, spent the morning at Sycho Tuning, getting the car tuned, and..........WOW!! David is an AWESOME tuner!!!! He was able to coax 600 RWHP and 519 RWTQ out of the Whipple/LS9 combo, on the 4" pulley at 7.5 psi. We switched to a 3.75" pulley and we saw 629.9 RWHP and 564.4 RWTQ at 8.6 psi. I am currently running the 4" pulley and am EXTREMELY happy with the results! The car drives just like it did when I drove it off the lot....until you press the gas pedal

I have attached the two runs.

Dyno Video

Here is a video of the dyno console on one of the last runs. I just thought it was a little more interesting than a video of the car spinning up the rollers. It's awesome to watch how fast the speedo moves!
