Hopefully I get everything back together by then.

Just picked up a set of 821 heads to replace these 823s. Going to get a set of stouter valve springs for them as well. Hoping to sell this mechanical pump to fund the electric one then itll be ready to go back to the dyno

Decided the cheapest route is the best route for me. Picked up this triple y block.

And this dual pump mount

https://www.ebay.com/itm/Billet-Alum...b04e%7Ciid%3A1

Going to throw 2 aem 380lph pumps on it and keep the primer walbro 255 as well. Going to add a 3rd bulkhead in the sump of the cell so each pump has their own feed.

The 821 heads will be here tomorrow and this weekend look to tear the heads off and get them swapped out. Hoping to make it back to the dyno beginning of next month, this should allow me to carry power past 7500

I'm definitely no expert, but it seems like you've got too much spring back there, and not enough shock. Looks SUPER good, but it seems to need a bit more height in the rear along with the lowered spring rate. That should load the rear tires up nicely.

Thanks for the input

I raised ride height an inch to put the coilovers in the center of their travel. Moved instant center above antisquat line which should transfer more weight faster and move the suspension down/body up hitting tires harder. I tightened compression up a few clicks and loosened rebound which should help it. Gonna start with more air in the tires and go from there next outing. Dont want to make any more changes than that for now. If it doesn't help I'll scale it again and check for spring rate again. Not wanting to make a ton of changes at once and dont know what helped/hurt it

Heads showed up today. Ordered a fuel filter for each of the new pumps to go in pre pump.

Got the new springs on went with the btr .685 springs shimmed .030

Picked up the ict billet 551668-3 alternator bracket along with a new 4 pin alternator. Also picked up Holley 197-400 pigtail for it. Already has the resistor built in to self excite it.

Aem pumps showed up today. Everything else will be here this week and I'll have it all back together and ready for the dyno after next week.

I'm with ya man. After seeing the tuners timing table I'm going to tell him to throw some timing at it....

23psi he has 10.5* in it. That's definitely not helping the power fall off up top. I mean I'm no tuner but I would think 14-16* sounds more like it from everyone else I'm seeing dyno turbo e85 cars

hammdo 05-29-2019 11:41 PM

Mine is 20.5 with e85/meth, 17 on e85 and that is still conservative ...

My timing around peak tq is 10* and ramps up timing is top to 13* sbe LS3 19psi made 905whp through manual trans e85/meth. Too much timing is usually what kills these motors w/boost imo better to be too little than too much

This is very true especially being sbe. I know it's common practice to ramp timing back in after peak tq which I think would help this car a bunch.

Scheduled to go back for the retune June 26th. Far enough out to get everything squared away

Dual pumps are mounted. Will work on relays/wiring next.
Heads are on. Need to torque them and I'll be back in business

My 2 cents, keep it safe, race it, enjoy it for this season and know down the road you can squeeze some more out of it if you need to. Super awesome build man, lots of hours of hard work in it and now its time to enjoy it!

Thanks man! Definitely been hearing a lot of this lately lol. Sounding more and more like the route I'll go.

EDIT:
Car is all back together 100%. New alternator is charging over 14 volts at idle, car starts right up after a second of cranking with the new fuel pumps. Ready for the dyno the 26th now. Hopefully no hiccups

Made it back from the dyno. Timing is back into the car now but blowing through the converter badly after 17psi.

At 17 psi it made 800whp. That pull was 89 degree ambient/37% humidity to boot. So lot of power gained from timing.

Ended with 25psi and 21.5 degrees of timing. Made 826whp. Going to pick up some ignite red to help it live here per tuners recommendation. Based on fuel consumption. It would be right around 1400 crank hp

We had issues such as, tps sensor failing, co2 pressure being too high(needed to make a shift on this m&m), so I'll be adding the second co2 bottle regulated down to 80psi for boost control alone, and blowing through the converter lastly
