Got to start it last night. It's still on the old tune, so the computer is kind of freaking out. I just wanted to hear it, so we cranked it up. Here's a teaser.

The LSX is finished, and I got to break her in a bit at the Camaro Nationals today. Had a blast, but I just couldn't get her to hook. I'm also gonna have to work on shifting with the 4L80. Had a blast anyway, and I can't wait until the car is completely done (if that's possible). We did pull a quick dyno while tuning it for the nationals. It pulled 725 RWHP and 714 RWTQ at 13.1 lbs of boost. We still have some tweaking to do that should squeeze out some more HP, and then we'll add in the dope.

I wish someone had a video of me slipping and sliding down the track. I'd like to hear what the new exhaust sounds like.

Decided to go ahead and get the Lingenfelter 9.5" rear end. This is the weakest link and I'm not sure how long the stock one will last. Looks like I'll have some Hendrix/DSS axles to sell.

Did you look at the GForce 9" kit? I am considering putting that one in with the new tranny.

Could you pm me the price for the Lingenfelter kit?

I did, but the Lingenfelter is a beast.

Do you still have stock axles? That's the piece I'd be worried about with your power.

Yup. I figured I'd swap when I have to.

keep it from wheel hopping and you should be ok for a while... Keith, Camaro21 ran somewhere around 300+ passes on his factory axles... You've got some pretty decent suspension items, do you have trailing arms and toe rods... if not, I would look at those before any more track sessions...

I put Pedders bushings in my stock trailing arms. No toe rod work.

I replaced mine when the blower went on. You lose an axle going down the track it will shoot your car in the other direction. I just didn't want to take the chance.

I'd gamble that if it blows it goes at the start.

But you are right. It could be trouble. I don't get to the strip much at all. Mainly because I need rear wheels to use with DRs. Once that happens I'll go often. I may do the axles at that time.
