    My guess is the 7.28 is an 11.2x in the 1/4. a ~7.09 will be a 10.99. You're less than .2 away from the 10's. How is that for motivation?

    The TCM is part of the valve body inside the transmission. Have you pulled the tune out of it and edited it or did you just flash the 6l80 tune into it? You probably need to pull the 6.90 tune out and edit it with your shift timing, pressure etc tables and do a "write entire".

    Without the bad, you can't really appreciate the good. Try to find the bright side. Luckily you can let it sit and go beat on the GT500 at the track now that fall weather is just around the corner. If you're up to it, the "fastest" 64 "street car" shootout starts tomorrow night at the Hill. It's the weirdest layout of a race I've ever seen.

    It's good that you didn't immediately jump to a bad "new" part, but eventually you get there. You don't expect something new to be bad, but it does happen. Beefing up your wiring will never be a bad thing. I think the alternator and starter rebuild outfits that "reman" them, just stick the cores on a test machine and if it reads inside their spec they rebox it and send it out. Their spec must be pretty loose though.

    A high of 1.05 is normal. Mine regularly sees that. It should bounce back and forth around 1.0, that's how the factory fuel trim scheme works. It doesn't sit rock steady at the commanded A/F, it goes above it then corrects to below it. It uses whatever correction it took to make that jump past 1.0 as the short term fuel trim. Look at stft and see what it is.

    Have you tried a new set of plugs? Or try moving the injectors from one side to the other. If Michael says it's not leaking, I would tend to trust him. It takes quite a large leak to travel back up the header to the O2 sensor. Even then, it usually only happens at idle. 7 heat range copper plugs kinda become a wear item at your power level. They can fowl in a short period of time if the gap is set pretty tight.

    I'd say he's probably not insured. But Vanderbilt is too busy fighting Ashley P for payment on his son's treatment to bother with this guy.
  8. Lightning = the storm kind

    Anyone here would recommend calling an electrician to check it out. We don't get involved inside the house.
  9. Lightning = the storm kind

    I'm not an electrical engineer and I don't understand all the system protection stuff. Here's my best guess. There are lightning arresters between the conductors and the neutral/ground. Think of them similar to a big spark plug, if the voltage is higher than the system voltage (lighting strike) it jumps a gap and goes to ground. That's if the lighting hits a conductor wire. The system neutral (usually a few feet below conductors) should be tied to ground 4 times per mile. What probably happened for you is when the lightning hit the ground, the neutral saw some of that voltage through that ground connection. Some upstream protection device (think breaker) saw that stray voltage as a short between the conductor and neutral and the protection device operated. If it was a recloser (think automated breaker) it's usually set to try and close back in a couple seconds. Since the neutral/ ground voltage was gone everything was good and it stayed closed.
  10. Random thought thread

    It was 3 years ago, I don’t remember other than it was under $10 per quart. I've also put 135 passes on it so whatever it was has been good enough.

    On mine, used whatever dex 6 that was available at oreilley’s
  12. Plenty of people can tune them. It’s just not something that can be done in a few hours. Mine trans is doing fine with 120 passes on it. No, I’m not using his software. No matter who tunes it, if you want to go fast at the track, it needs to be tuned at the track.
  13. I’ve redone the majority of my tune in the last few months. That’s where I picked up from 6.6x to 6.4x. Turns out bluecats tuning wasn’t that great.
  14. I had too much free time to surf the CTSV classifieds while on vacation. I bought a Nick Williams 102mm throttle body and a used/refreshed Jokerz 102 ported blower. It better go 9's now with ease.

    Dang, that’s more than a V makes stock and the q50 is probably much lighter. Sweet color too.
