If you boost up over 17 volts to the FPCM it will throw a code.
Ya, Ted told me that a while ago so I never tried a BAP. Figured another 1.5 volts would be pointless.

Got a slightly used SLP 1.85 rocker kit coming pretty cheap to try, prob go with Comp dual springs good to .650 lift though instead of the SLP's that are good to .600". If I add an LS9 cam with those rockers it'll be 211/230 122.5 with ~.611 lift. Should idle near stock and have a modest power gain. Gotta be able to fool the Guv'nor.

Still fighting with myself about what to do.

Why don't you guy's go to a return line setup? These cars have the same issue as the older single feed line cars. Pressure drop from the small single feed line that dead heads at the rail.

I was avoiding the return system because of the extra labor involved running the line if I could get the fueling I need returnless. That and I'm clueless what all I'd need to switch over to a return style system. I looked at the Squash site and got more confused with all the options.

I would like to see your gains from the 1.85 rockers. Are you planning to dyno it?

I would love too if I could find a dyno closer than 100 miles away. Winter here now, mod time & storage.

I use HPTuner's scanner for real world gains. Best 60-100 so far is 3.72 sec in third, 3.8 sec avg. I'll go from there in the spring after all the salt is washed away.

I had SLP do the rockers, valve springs on my Camaro. It was either that or a cam. I elected to go with the rocker set-up because I didn't want the front end of my engine messed with. Also kept original parts if I wanted to go back to stock. So I have the SLP supercharger with small pulley (9lbs of boost), 65lb. injectors, buster pump, SLP long tube header, full 3" X pipe exhaust and high flow mufflers and had the balancer pinned to crank. Roto-Fab CAI as well. When SLP was in Toms River NJ it was about 35 minute ride to the place. I had them do the work and do a dyno tune on the car when done. This was all before SLP was purchased and moved out of NJ. They did excellent work and I have no problems with the car at all. It can crank out the power when you put your foot into it.

Soooo....what'd it dyno?

Springs are in, waiting on new Comp Chrome moly pushrods after I measure the length needed to be sure.

On the dyno tune it pulled at the rear wheels 561 HP and 526 ft. lbs.

Was it a Mustang dyno? Seems a bit low for the mods you have on an LS3 @ 9 psi. I would have guessed 600whp.

SLP does conservative tunes. Sure if I take it to another good tuner they would be able to up the hp. But the current setup is like driving a stock LS3 until you get on it. My guess is SLP being in conjunction with GM do this conservative set-ups because they can carry a full warranty. Lets face it I don’t think they want any LS3’s coming back due to a blown engine. For now I am happy with the output. The car has less then 4,000 miles on it. Someday I might have it retuned.

Do you know what brand dyno it was tuned on? Just curious.

I used Comp 1.82 rockers on my LS2 with the stock cam. I can not really comment on power gains because I changed the heads and a few other things at the same time. I think it is a worthwhile change for someone that doesn't want to change the cam. A little added lift definitely can not hurt, and it is an easy mod that doesn't require going into the engine. Changing the cam would obviously be better, but some don't want to do that since often the problems start as soon as you go into the engine.
When I did later do my short block and cam, I kept the same rockers and spec'd the cam accordingly. The rockers have been completely trouble free and I am not easy on them.
I would suggest checking the wipe pattern when installing since the geometry is changing. In my case it was as perfect as possible.

Out of curiosity, will 1.82 rockers for an LS2 work on an LS3 or L99 that is otherwise stock?

I don't believe so, we have offset rockers on the LS3 heads. I don't think the LS2's did.
