Man, I can't wait to found out!! My travel schedule is tough, but I have a two day window next Friday and Saturday. She'll head back over to my buddies dealership until I can get up there.

Right now, all I can think about is that chopping sound...I play the video over and over.

GPI did tell me that's as far as they want to push her on the stock block. Pretty sure I have some drivetrain upgrades in my future...

The vid is blurry, but you can hear her motor roar all the way to 775

When I compare our mods, the only thing you wont have is a set of after market heads which added a ~ 35-40 hp bump for me.

A lot is going to depend on the psi tweak for the ProCharger. Since you are going to E85 I would be making sure the shop was maxing out the ProCharger. If the shop is confident you will get 13 psi, then my guess is you will come in ~ 760/695.
I didn't miss it by too much

Right, super close and a little conservative on the top end.


What I like about the Procharger is the linear progression of the power curve, but I needed more torque in the lower band. I believe this setup will give me a lot more excitement all over the pedal, including down low.

I don't dump the clutch from a standstill as much as I used to, but I still like to do rolling power pulls. She may even lay down a 2nd to 3rd gear scratch now. Which is really what I was after. Well, that and a big time chop.

i currently have the same bolt ons and ss3 cam from gpi along with their ported heads and 3.91s. 13lbs of boost, is that on stock internals or forged? Was there a limiting factor of the block itself that made you stop there or can you use more boost if you choose? How efficient is the ss3 cam for boost I’ve heard is it okay to use but, Would a custom blower cam be better?

Foot, all I can say is WOW! This car is throw momma out the window insane!! I've always wanted a car like this and now I have one. Couldn't be happier and big Shoutout to Aaron and his team at GPI!!! Will post vids when I get back home.

CrayZ, I am stock internals except for the valves springs and pushrods that were part of the SS3 package. My horsepower goal was 750 on the ground and GPI delivered what I ordered plus some. At 775 this is as far as they want to push her before going forged.

This baby really screams with the 3.91 gears so I believe everything works extremely well together, especially the cam.

My advice if you want to go FI is to upgrade the intercooler up front in case you want more hp down the road.

Told you permagrin would set in!

You got the bug and yes it's contagious. I can see an F-1X and forged engine in that car within a year

If Picasso had a blue period, this would defined as my red period. LOL! I picked up a set of OEM ZL1 rims from a local member sporting MTs on all four corners. The rears are ET Street SS. Also included were a set of 18" conversion ZL1 reps wearing ET Street R
