Been super busy trying to finish the car. But tuning is scheduled for June 14th. I'm renting the dyno for the day at MAK in Fort Wayne, Indiana. Its a hub dyno so we won't have to worry about tires spinning or tearing them up.

Got the driveshaft speed sensor wired and installed, got the front wheel speed sensor wired(need to make a bracket for sensor), brake lines are almost done, picked the wheelie bars up from powdercoat, and put new seals and reinstalled the fuel pump. Also got the wastegate flange welded onto the new 1.40 housing so thats out of the way as well

Have a decent list to finish the next few days, hoping I get it all done!

Awesome man!

Got the brake lines all done and bled, fire system pull cables mounted, front/back windows are in.

Damn car wouldn't start, ended up finding a torn o-ring on secondary injectors, cylinder 4. Probably why it wasn't building pressure. Ordered a set of o rings

Coilovers will be here Monday, ill have them on and an aligmment next week and shes ready for the dyno!

I got the front coilovers on, front is now sitting very nice! Limiters are on full loose.

This thing was getting HOT on idle. I was shutting it down at 230-235. Ended up throwing the old radiator and fan back in and it will now lose temp turning the fans on at 150 degrees idling.

And lastly my carrier bearing on my daily decided to take a shit(2016 ram 3500) and decided to convert to a one piece shaft($1050). So in order to try and save money, I got with crucial performance in Columbus again to do the retune which will be about half of what I was going to pay MAK. I take the car tomorrow at 1pm. Ill keep you guys posted. Being a dynojet and being it only made 845whp last time on 21psi and 826 on 25. I honestly only expect 1000-1050whp. The trans being hurt last go round definitely hurt those numbers

All loaded and ready to roll in the AM

Super long day, we just got home. The factory coils wouldn't light the fuel past 18 psi. We had the gap closed down to .010 even. We had an issue where it lost crank signal. We thought it was a trashed crank sensor, we swapped that out and no change. Ended up finding a pin had slid in the harness where it plugs into the gold box. Our first pull was supposed to be on gate(6psi spring) and they stopped the pull after it reached 30psi. For some reason the wastegate was super picky on vacuum line routing. I had the boost leash teed into the compressor cover. Moved the tee to the second port on the lower diaphragm and overboost solved. Those were the only 2 issues I had, nothing too major

We made 855/801 on that 18psi.

Will be ordering a set of smart coils and going back in a few weeks after they're all done with rocky mountain raceweek and catch up work

EDIT:
Ordered the smart coils and brackets for the holley valve covers. Along with the open element iat sensor. The closed one wasn't reacting fast enough during a pull. So I will be moving that one to the pan for oil temp.

With the new intake combo it wanted to be revved out to over 8k! Sounded wicked. I never got a chance to record a pull. We were all covering our ears lol
