Finally getting boosted!

Well folks, after YEEEEEARS of dreaming/waiting, the moment I thought might never happen is finally about to become a reality. I had been mulling over getting some CNC-ported heads for a while but knew I always wanted to get "blown" and figured I'd do it after paying off the car later this year. However, when Michael (s/n "Z69") mentioned he was selling his Maggie 2300 that he originally planned to put on his '69 Camaro with an LS3 (for a great price), I could not resist. After doing the math, I found I could pay off my SS now with the money I would have used on the heads and skip right to the really fun stuff, with the assistance of my boys at Lashway Motorsports...

First off, all the kit was missing, besides a couple heater hoses and clamps, was a valley pan, which we are still waiting on (should arrive by Wednesday). In the meantime, I'll be having my dual valve springs replaced, since they have almost 25K miles on them now, along with getting the other parts installed that can be done before then.

When all is said and done, I'm hoping for between 550-600 rwhp. Now, before anyone says "that's it?," I gotta give just a little background on my SS here. From day one, it appears mine has always been a "dyno-dud" making, with full bolt-ons and [at the time] E-mail tune from Vector Motorsports, only about what most stock SSs make. BTW, the dyno numbers in my signature are on a Dynojet, which reads about 4% higher than the Mustang Dyno Lashway uses. Maybe I should have broken it in a bit harder than I did when I got it (?), but too late for that now.

We discussed possibly switching to a blower cam and I might, down the road. However, I do like the cam I have now (even though it was designed more for LS3 Corvettes), since it made good gains throughout the entire powerband, has great driveability, and sounds ridiculously good. It has just a little (4 degrees) overlap, so I'm aware it will bleed a little boost, but I'm okay with that; 'not looking to set any records here. We may jump up to a slightly smaller pulley to make up the lost boost, but try to keep it at or under 8 psi. The other issue that may have to be addressed is my 4.10 gears. When I got them, I never thought I'd be getting boosted, but now they may be a bit too much--I guess I'll soon find out though! I imagine I'll likely end up going back to stock 3.45s or 3.70s and fatter rubber, eventually, as traction will be hard to find. I'm also still running on a stock driveline (save for bushings) and clutch, which I imagine are also living on borrowed time--another reason I want to keep power at or under 600 rwhp...

Anyway, sorry for writing a book, but I'm pretty excited, obviously. As Josh@Lashway told me (with an almost evil smirk), I have no idea what I'm in for (but can't wait to find out! ).

Thanks. I don't doubt it... except when I look at how much I'll be spending on tires (as if it wasn't enough already! ). If everything holds together, my next purchase might be a beater for DD.

That's correct. The same night I also cut a 1.68. There is video of it in the quick 60' thread section. I have learned a pretty good method for slipping the clutch. It took a long time to get there though. Practice, practice, practice.

Thanks for the support, guys! A few updates...

Lunatti dual .650-lift springs getting replaced with PRC dual .650-lift springs. The old springs have about 24K miles on them, but still look good. If anyone wants to buy them for spares, let me know...;

Radiator removed for heat exchanger install;

Josh removing the stock fuel pump to be replaced with ZL1 pump...

The valley pan should arrive this afternoon (knock on wood). If everything goes as planned, install should be complete and tuning started (if not finished) tomorrow.

Yes, the back seat was removed and a hole cut out to access the pump, which will be re-sealed--much cheaper alternative to dropping the whole rear and tank. Manny, up above, did the same thing himself and made a custom access door, if I recall. Do you have the link to your thread on that project, Manny?

Yeah I would like to see the pictures when your done with the access door. I'm 90% done with my build sc, cam etc. I'm gonna install my zl1 pump and boost a pump before next weekend also.

But say I wanna up power later, it would be great to not have to drop the whole tank twice.

Well, last night the install was completed...well, kinda. When we tried to fire her up, the injectors weren't firing, so this morning, we had them all removed, cleaned and tested. All of them were good, except one (Siemens DEKA 60-lb high impetance), so we're using some new ZR1 injectors that were going to go on a different application. I was a little concerned that they might not flow enough, but the Lashway team assured me they won't get even close to maxed out (we'll soon see). The car is currently on the dyno, getting tuned by Josh@Lashway. We also ordered a smaller pulley, in case the stock one doesn't provide the desired numbers. We will also install a catch can, down the road (I hear there's a 2-month back-order on RX and others right now). This is getting exciting.

'Still some engine bay cleanup left to do. 'Forgot to mention, we also cut about 1/2" off the throttle body end of my CAI intake tube to get it to fit (I guess the TB now sits a little bit further forward than it did with the stock intake manifold). Also, Erik@Lashway took the initiative (I didn't even ask for it; he just did it, LOL) to paint my VMAX TB to match the blower for a cleaner look; it's almost a perfect match (thanks, Erik).

Not sure which catch can we'll be going with, as of yet (haven't really discussed it yet)... As for numbers, tuning is still in the process of getting done. It's only getting about 5 lbs. of boost right now, so we will definitely be going to a smaller pulley in a week or two. I heard it through the grapevine that I'm already at 500 lb-ft. of rwtq at 5K RPMs though and this is probably the most conservative [heartbreaker Mustang] dyno I've had my car on.

Our builds are very similar, so I'm curious about your numbers. My new cam is 228/236 LSA 115. Plus u have gears which will up your TQ on the dyno I think.
I will get numbers till middle of April, up here in NY winter won't end.

I will PM you later, I have a 3 RX catch cans. Two of them are stage 1s the other is a 2.

Awesome news, thanks! We just got another surprise. Josh was seeing more flow from these injectors than he expected and then the lightbulb went off in his head as he remembered these are actually 63-lb. Lingenfelter (re-flowed, not re-drilled) injectors, not 56-lb. ZR1s. I'm just gonna bite the bullet and stick with these, since they work so well...

Also, I'm not making much boost (~5 lbs, they said) with the stock pulley, so the numbers are not great/desired. We were planning to swap to a smaller pulley (which arrived today also) anyway, so that should do the trick, but I'll have to come back a week from now to get that done, as we're pressed for time and this rental car fee is killing me! LOL Sorry, but I'm gonna have to hold off on the "final" numbers until then. But, so far, so good!

LOL Sorry, but I'm gonna have to hold off on the "final" numbers until then. But, so far, so good!
Well, perhaps I jumped the gun when I said the above, as Josh wasn't anywhere near done with the tune. When he was done, we were both a little [pleasantly] shocked at the results: 568 rwhp (and still climbing at 6800 RPM)/493 rwtq with a nice, flat torque curve. Boost is still only 5-5.5 lbs with the cam bleeding a bit of it, so we still might pulley down and try to reach 7-8 lbs. In the meantime, I'll drive it around for a week or two, as is to see how I like it. I've only driven it home, so far, so not much seat time yet. I'm surprised 1st gear is still useable, but I haven't gotten on it too hard (yet)...

'Just want to give a big shout out to Erik, Josh, and Ryan at Lashway Motorsports for a great install experience (and for allowing me to watch the progress), as well as Michael (s/n "Z69") for the Maggie! 'Great attention to detail and safety checks, etc. I can't wait to get on this thing some more! Here is the dyno sheet (sorry for the poor lighting; I'll try to get a PDF image of it, eventually...

Congrats my man, I bet when you pulley down it will easily be over 600. It's like driving a whole new car again. I remember the first time I pulley downed and had my 04 Cobra tuned, It was a night a day difference.
