    I'm down. I just need to make sure it's on one of my off weekends or days.
  2. Dyno Day 2019

    Group dyno day = cheaper.
  3. Dyno Day 2019

    Anyone interested in a dyno day for 2019? Let's choose the shop, date and time if so! 5th Gear DBR Boost addicts ???

    We should just make it another dyno day!

    The rebuild starts at $4,600: https://www.circledtrans.com/bench-package Add the 800hp upgrades because I'm 760rwhp now and it's more. That's over 800 flywheel hp! (15% driveline loss makes it 874 at the flywheel!) The car was built for 330rwhp, so it's to be expected that stuff is not going to hold up to 760rwhp. The lesson to be learned here, though, is buy the stronger built car, i.e., ZL1, CTSV, ZO6, etc., because you're going to spend just as much if not more building it up. I tried to explain it to my wife, why I still wanted a ZL1 and she didn't get it. But trust me, she get's it now! Like how much it costs to mod up to make power to even just a stock ZL1, etc. She is seeing how weak OE parts fail since they were never designed for power like this, etc. But I was either going to have a ZL1 or build something better. Here am progressing... Once I'm done with this car, it''ll be my toy. I'll still get a ZL1 later, though.

    Keep it stock so you can get a baseline. I'm curious what they run stock real world!

    Well, I've backed my shifts down to stock to try and make this thing live longer until I can fix some issues. That's still about 640-650 rwhp on E85 according to the dyno chart. Right now, I have a couple gears slipping on up / down shifts. I'm trying to get quotes right now from various performance trans rebuild 6L80 / 6L90 shops. Right now Circle D trans is at the top of my list. @Mike do you know of any better shops? I want to do this right the first time. $6k+ trans rebuilds aren't something i want to do often.
  8. Mike, the CTSV forum images aren't showing up. They need to end in .jpg instead of php to display here. You can directly attached them, or if the images are on your phone, use tapatalk to post them.

    CP pistons The grooves are on the top of the piston to replicate the approach of anti-detonation or contact reduction grooves on the ring lands. It helps atomize the air/fuel mixture and create tumble by swirling the mixture in the combustion chamber.

    @gammey4 I looked at my logs after backing all my shifts down to stock mph and rpm... The reason it is over revving is because in some gears it's taking too long to complete the shift. I'm not sure if that means it needs more line pressure, or what. For instance, I commanded a shift at stock 6k rpm's and the stock mph for that, but by the time it shifted, I am a few hundred rpm's above the target. I had one WOT shift commanded at 6k and it made it all the way to like 6700-6800 rpm's once. It shifts very inconsistent....

    Checked 2 of my plugs off the drivers side head and all seems well. They’re discolored from the Torco Accelerator race fuel though. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
