It was a way better pen and the color was perfect.. I used two pens and did everything on the interior, including the steering wheel, shifter, seats, door and dash trim.. Love the results!! Easy and cheap mod, just a little time consuming, got the whole thing done over the course of 3 days... hour or so a day....

would you happen to have a pic of the dyno sheet? I would love to see how the hp and tq curve compares to other superchargers.

I need to get another dyno sheet and put it online, I used to put them on the motor to show my HP but I packed all my receipts and what not up and put in my storage units. Are house is finally getting started to be built in the middle of August. We have been living with our in-laws so everything goes in the storage units.

Mine might be on their FB page not sure.

My blower is very TQ heavy... Even ECS when I talked to them about my blower said these ones pretty much match HP & TQ,

there is a bunch of dyno sheets with people using the same blower. You can see the TQ curve in their sheets.

Check this link out and there are more

Yea that's what I was looking at. I didn't know that these blowers have some ridiculous power and torque at about 3k. Makes the tvs 2300 look like a chump in my eyes lol. And I did check out new era fb and its a no go. I bet this thing is truly a beast in the street. You should make a journal so all the members on camaro 5 can drool over your car

I took my buddy for a ride 2 days ago. He has full bolt ons, LT headers and hi flow cats, CAI,Maggie SC with COG 1.1. He couldn't believe how my car felt with such a low amount of boost. I barely ever hit 8#s since I shift at or before 6000 rpms and not 6800 redline. I don't think I will ever use that 3" pulley I have, I tried it one time and it was to much for my summer daily driver (0ver 650), and after this last retune. I'm happy and finally gonna leave it alone and just enjoy it.

If we ever get out to another event together I will take you for a ride.

Ron, congrats on the new house and the soon to come little one!!! I also have had to scale back on the mod budget, not really wife imposed but reality imposed! I'm also kinda saving to pay for Gingerman next week and Camaro fest. Hopefully by spring though I'll be looking at doing a cam, we'll see!

It's because you can't physically touch the pictures and put them where you want them, you have to understand the magic that does it and what you have to do to make it work the way you want.

Mike what ever you do to your car next will be awesome, everything u have done so far has been great. I always felt cams are the way to go, no other MOD changes the sound and performance better.

[QUOTE=spike III;6768686]I new it wasn't 2 be long before she pulled on the reigns. feel lucky you don't have a bit in your mouth yet. This one is for Ron.

She's got the reins pretty tight. Even going for my street tune the other day she started to complain, but then when I told her it was free she said she didn't care lol..

Mike street tuned it for free (i know nothings free, but he hooked me up) and he bought lunch. So it was definitly worth the trip on Monday

Good morning all. Last time I was up Seneca Lake area (end of May) I saw a paper with some car gatherings in Genevea IIRC. Anybody go to these? I'm heading back this Saturday, gotta find that paper. Gonna do the Glen ride again after the wine fest, this time from the back of the pack. Later.

PM member steve. He's in Geneva. There is nothing on our schedule for July. I think most everyone is gearing up for C5F4 and/or BBOMG next month.
