    Are you sure your belt length was supposed to read as posted?
    Pretty sure it should be 080505

    We may need to chat about a built 6R80 Eric.

    Surely this setup will test the 4R70E you last built for me.

    I had a few loose ends to fix before starting her up. I got Marty to send me a startup tune and from there on Jeff will remote in and do his magic. Last week we were set for our first session when he noticed my O2 sensors were way out of range for the amount of time the car had been running. I hadn't mentioned it till then but I didn't finish welding up my lead pipes to connect the new LT's to the back half of the exhaust system. At the time I was running open headers.

    I'm going to run her with no cats just so I can get it done quick. I weld up a set of lead pipes and much to my surprise she's not as loud as I imagined. Jeff and I will set another date for him to do the remote tune but it was nice to hear her run for the first time.

    I didn't prime anything, just threw the key and Viola!!! She started right up.

    No clicks, no taps, no issues.

    All I have left is to fabricate a new throttle cable bracket and design the new PCV system then she's ready to hit the streets.

    On my first street run I quickly found she's a different beast from the old Trilogy. I couldn't keep her straight after I got into boost.

    Looks like a ring and pinion swap will be in my immediate future. I also couldn't get the Mickey Thompson ET streets to hook.

    The boost comes up so quick it's almost scary

    Low compression is the killer. My ďguessĒ 560-580 on 93, and at 22#s (damn near maxing out the efficiency) and adding way more heat, 590-630 on 110.

    My 93 tune is 603 and it is absolutely STUPID power on the street. I would think being a centri w/a manual is pretty comparable to a twin screw w/auto. The only 110 Iíve ran thru mine is the 5 gallons I used on the dyno a few years ago as itís simply wasted power unless at the track. Hell, my 93 tune is wasted power.

    550-580 and really good tires is the perfect number to hit. As an example of too much, we were drifting my car at 115mph in 3rd at only 4,500 RPM with decent tires and three average sized adults on the 110 tune..

    If my prediction is even in the ball park, and you can keep your IATs in check, you will have the perfect power you seek. It will feel like every bit of 200+ horses added to the butt meter. There is a really BIG difference from bolt ons to 450hp. Going from 450 to 550ish isnít even explainable in words how much MORE power is on tap because you ďthoughtĒ you had a tire fryer fast car before. Now you DO! And your driving skills had better be up to par for tire frying down the interstate... Now you will need to peddle it at the beginning AND end of every gear. Or ride it out like me.

    We'll see how conservative the tune is. You can get 640rwhp with an M122 and he's running a tvs so unless he runs out of injector...


    Dyno today btw...

    Don't think GT500 with that blower(M122) see those kind of numbers and they are stick, I know his TVS is night and day vs the M122.

    580 on pump 93 sounds about right, 640 on 110.

    Actually, it’s been proven already more than a few times with the M122. There’s a member here with a crown Vic that is putting down 640 with an M122. It doesn’t mean you won’t have to let it cool down after a run with the high IATs you’ll see even with a good heat exchanger, but, it’s a proven combo. Yes, the GT500 crowd already knows this. I know of one that’s pushing 670rwtq with the M122
