Car is back and running strong

********The RPM 4L80e lvl 5 trans is working perfectly with the PCS controller. drivability is perfect. car or trans doesn't get hot, even sitting in traffic. shifts strong. its really nice not having the car constantly shifting up and down all the time.

I will have to relearn how to launch the car. on the old 6l80 with the 3200 converter. the first gear was so violent I just launched the car at idle and it would cut mid 1.5 60's. now first gear isn't nearly as violent and with the new converter I can literally foot brake the car to 3500 rpm. so I will have to spend the next couple times at the track working out what the tires will hold.

the nitrous outlet kit is also working great. I have it set up on a button and soon as I get going in first I press it and leave it on thru the pass and shifts.

I put a 3.5" pulley on the whipple. the car is really liking the extra boost, but it is not happy about the 6 rib set-up. it will DESTROY a belt in about 10 full passes. so im going to see how far I can push the 6 rib set-up then switch to a 10 rib.

the squash fuel system and lines look and function perfectly.

the same for the alky control meth system and the DSS driveshaft.

I will throw some pics up here in alittle bit.

no clue, didn't dyno it, all tuning is done on the streets in real conditions. going to try and go to the track Friday night. but its been so hot lately, would pretty much be a waste of time. but I will prolly still go and work on launching the car.

yep, 100% stock block and rotating assembly. stock heads w/ ls3 conversion

there are quite a few cars running 9's and over 900whp on the factory shortblocks.

will prolly do pistons and rods this winter.

I would like to see what your drive shaft safety loop looks like? What rear gear are you running?

Do you have the N20 only on the button or in combination with WOT and Window switch. Cause I have seen a few on push buttons where they get all excited and after crossing the line they let out of the throttle but forget to release the button and when they get back on it kaboom.

A push button in conjunction with the other safety devices is good because you are more in control. If you start loosing traction you can release the button to gain control while still WOT.

How many lbs are you pushing with the Whipple?

Bottom end can handle at least 650 HP, if not more, properly tuned of course.

I know that, just was curious when I saw he was on nitrous as well.

car on boost only(no bottle). still on 20" nitto 555r DR's.

car spun really bad all of first(next time I need to set my air pressure) I had 29 psi in the right rear and 24psi in the left. I wasn't planning on racing anyone since it was the first night out with the car.

mine is the 2nd and 3rd race with the viper. it would have been ugly if I would have hooked at all in first...well I guess uglier.

15 psi is fine if you're running a good race gas.


Awesome that you got the car back and it's ready to rumble. Should make some nasty passes if everything comes together.

The 6 rib system wont support 15psi. I'm already eating a belt every 10-12 WOT hits on the current boost level.

The 10 rib kit is a pretty cheap investment. I'm surprised that you were even able to squeak 15 psi out of a 6 rib without belt slip.
