  1. Union Hill 2018 thread

    Nice run, Mike! Any slow 5th Gen's out there? Soon as i get tooned, we'll meet up and go race. I prefer Beech Bend if it is possible for you.

  3. Fox Mustang: Next Purchase

    Not possible. It runs and drives me to work every day, and has already been down the track. Just look at the past video's. It consistently runs 7's in the 1/8 and 11's in the 1/4 on a street tire with traction control on. The tune is just not 100% perfect, which means there is more HP and quicker ET's on the table.

    It runs and drives? You mean we might get to see this thing at the track soon?

    Measured the Kooks Bullet Race mufflers. Side by side they will be 9 inches wide. Length is about 20.5 inches. Laying the ruler across it doesn’t really help show width in pics. But I double checked. Pipes are 3 inches. Muffler outer is about .75 inches around the 3 inch pipe. So like I said, 9 inches total across. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Well, time to fix a few issues and do a couple mods. First, I'm replacing that POS VARARAM turbulent heat sucker. From all my reading, it looks like Cold Air Inductions makes about the best power if I use the JRE scoop. https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1Smo75RWYXjzUfsZeyoilhCG0jPCzI6PBzmfOpGA_Ae4/edit#gid=0
  7. LS3 advice.

    I cut a 1.7x 60ft on DSW 09's with TC on. Fwiw, the DSW 09's suck in cornering. But are a good all season tire that's soft and does well on the drag strip.
  8. Wow. GM needs to do better here. Wonder if the new LT1's have the same issues as the LSx did? Like timing chain tensioners cracking, DoD lifters failing and oil consumption via PCV system.
  9. How many miles are on those mounts? I think mine has some like that and I bet the cam and sporty driving I do will break them fast.

    I need more powa!

    That looks more packed than a Titans game!
  12. Cadillac CTSV Build

    @Disney and @Mike are the best LSx guys I know. One of them might be able to help you out. I wouldn't let anyone else touch my junk to be honest.
  13. As y'all know, I had the Continental Extreme Contact DSW 09's on my car. Well, I had a leak in the D/S rear and tried to use the factory tire sealer in the trunk so I could limp it to the shop for repair. But discovered the leak was the valve stem and it would not seal. Got it towed to Discount Tire, and they repaired it. But the sealer messed up the balance, so by 55-60 mph the tire would start bouncing. So i decided by that and the tread being near the wear limits, that I'd just get a new set for the rear only since the front's still had like 50% or more on the tread. Well, after getting the new rear tires on and driving it, the car was super unstable. So much that my stability control kept kicking in on curves and applying the brakes. I really thought that they had forgotten to tq my rear lug nuts it was so unstable in the rear. I then tried re-torqing all my lugs. They were fine and in spec. Checked tire pressure. They were around 32 psi, so low for these tires since the max is 51 psi. I put 47 psi in so when they heat up they don't go past 51 psi. That didn't solve the problem. So I got to brain storming. What could could cause this? Then it hit me. The rear tires are new and have a super soft sidewall and compound with more tread. The front have seasoned, plus they had worn down more on the tread making them harder/stiffer. So I ordered new fronts to match and drove it. Sure enough, problem solved. Crazy it made THAT much of a difference. Thing that sucks is, the fronts don't wear very fast, but it looks like I'll still need to replace them with the rears. So to run these, I'd use 2 full seats of tires a year.

    Hey, all I did to mine was a set of new DWS 09's.
  15. 2013 SS L99 Tuning

    Any new progress on this SS?
  16. 2010 Camaro SS

    I wanted a Mustang GT ever since I was about 11. Took me until Oct 1996 to get one. That's 8 years of wanting and dreaming before I got the means (job) to get one. So you could say my patience was learned through my childhood.
  17. Q50 HSA

    Ahh, so 400 hp TT V6. I can see that beating some stock 5th Gen's. 12.9's stock for the 2017?

    Agree. It sucked waiting forever for my Kooks exhaust. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    What they were doing is, taking orders and then not ordering the parts until they had enough to do a bulk order for a lower price from the suppliers. I don't agree with their misleading customers on shipping times, but as far as I know, everyone who waited patiently, eventually got their order. And that was cheaper than anywhere else they could have got it. Not taking up for them. But I'm almost positive if they had waited like us, they would have got their parts.
