You should feel this thing when it hits 4000 rpm in first gear...its like the old two stroke dirt bikes I used to ride hitting their power band...

For a mild engine build that car runs darn good, I'm impressed. I believe and know that computer you had on the Q jet was killing that thing, it's the tuning capabilities that really prevail here. Been there a couple times myself, it's amazing what a difference tuning capabilities make. I would do this to my Pontiac but these systems only support 620hp I think?

Nice, Thanks, it only makes 630hp NA now, with a better intake it will make 670 which I plan on doing before I run it. The engine was built for a 300 shot of NOS to give it a little extra too. In hind sight I should have built a turbo engine on a after market block to crack 1200.

Little update...

Filled the tank Saturday, got 11.3 mpg burning just over 12 gallons including one autocross event and the rest bombing around on side streets working on engine tune.

I now have 1100 miles on the car since August when I got it running on the EFI. Best part is, the tires still have a TON of life left in them. Last tires only lasted me 900 miles.

Raced it Sunday with local SCCA, had a blast on a super fun course. Ran the GoPro out on each rear fender to watch what the tires were doing since I knew the course would have a lot of slaloms.

https://youtu.be/q2ftyh1xbyE

Car did great, driver could have been better. Ended up 27th raw, 25th pax overall out of 131 drivers. I'm stoked though because I had so much fun on course and still made it back home in time to watch Chiefs make it to the Superbowl for the first time in 50 years!!!

Had to add data to this run from Sunday at Marana just to see for myself.

I'm particularly pleased with the cars ability to transition back and forth 1G to 1G several times in a row in a 45-50 mph slalom without breaking a sweat or sliding a tire. We had two drivers running back to back in back to back run groups, so 16 runs total in a little about 2 and a half hours time. We sprayed the right rear and right front tire once to cool them down after the 12th run is all. Other than that just turn the key and go. Still haven't touched a screw or a knob since last October.

Pretty happy camper...

Here are some cool pics from the event as well.

Finally got around to adding that safety item that I hope I never have to use. On board fire system...

[Linked Image]

Here you can see the manual pull T-handle and the driver nozzle.

Here is the engine nozzle

I didn't grab a pic of the third nozzle that sticks through the trunk floor and points at the fuel pump and fuel lines on top of the fuel tank.

I also finally put a pretty good bend up on the throttle pedal to make it easier to get 100% throttle, probably raised it an inch off the floor.

Now I'm all ready for two days of on track action at Arizona Motorsports Park Feb 22-23. Skipping the SCCA Autocross this weekend to save my tires for the track weekend.

Looks good Lance, nice clean install. This reminds me, I really need to carry a fire extinguisher this year.

As Ron said, legit race car.

Are you making any changes to the setup? It sounded like the last autox you were pretty happy with the car. Road course may be different, higher speeds, less roll. Should be interesting. It's been a while since last out chasing them LS cars.
Enjoy.

Dont plan on changing anything but will have time to adjust between runs if necessary. Should get (4) 20 minute sessions each day.

There will be video...
