    Hauls ass for sure. Up to 4000rpms it only produces 3psi of boost. 4000rpms to my rev limiter of 6200 it hits 9.5 psi. Really acts like a belt driven turbo. I'm getting 16city/25highway Mpgs. I have also maxed out my fuel system(bap is on Max and zr1 injectors are at 93% duty cycle). So this will be it for a while till I can afford new injectors and twin fuel pumps

    Re: Wrecked my G8. Repairs=$8000.00!!!

    Just had a complete retune of the car. First tune was not sufficient.

    I'm now shifting at 6600rpms and redline set at 7000rpms I think. I have enough fuel for now all the way through the gears, but throttle shuts down at 7lbs of boost.

    I don't have enough fuel pressure and when the injector duty cycle hits 100%, the computer shuts down the throttle. Keeps it safe.

    So next I am installing the new zl1 fuel pump. Will support over 800. Need to Redyno the car soon, but I should be north of 600rwhp now

    I'm using the zr1 injectors, but I hit 100% duty cycle before I hit max boost. So to be safe the computer shuts down the throttle and limits me to 7lbs.

    Pulley produces 9.5. But injectors max out at 7lbs. So to be safe, throttle shuts down to keep things in check.

    having too low of an idc at lower revs makes for bad driveability.

    Just got my Siemens 60lb injectors on a sweet deal. $180 shipped. Installing them Friday and tuning them. Should pick up another 60hp or so. Then buying methanol injection and adjusting accordingly for that. Then it's dyno time for new numbers

    As you would expect I was ice skating and ran a 12.3 at 121.

    I now have a set of slicks and skinnies for this Wednesday. Lightweight welds with Hoosier front runners and 315 Mickey Thompson in the rear. I'll also have a Gopro and the owner of lashway motorsports joining me for the runs.

    Drag radials didn't matter either. Still spun them slightly and ran a 11.9 at 122. Trans temps were still too high.

    So installing Monday is the camaro ss transmission pan and filter, holds more fluid, and much larger trans cooler(earls 81906 cooler)
