update 1/31/13----Last night the best run i seen was 505rwhp and 566tq! although jared did say before the motor was heatsoaked it did hit 570's. I cant believe the truck is making this much power on only 7.1 lbs of boost on 93 octane pump gas.
Heres some of the reasons why:
1) New transmission from level 10.. Biggest factor being properly specc'ed converter to take advantage of this motors massive torque..
2) my hks electronic boost controller was never configured properly After installing. Jared spent a hr or so calibrating it and setting the proper settings to get it to build boost faster and hold it constantly thru the full run.
Well on the way to pickup the truck this morning jared called me and told me he couldnt maintain boost levels thru a full pull on the dyno and he would need to keep the truck for a few days more to diagnose why.
About a hour later we get there cause i was curious about what was going on.
Well from all the dyno pulls and excess heat from my headers i guess jotech installed my meth kit and boost controller vacuum hoses to close to the left header and those lines where melted.
So to fix the issue i told jared i wanted to install a vacuum manifold block to where all devices that need vacuum pressure could get thier readings and it'd be more accurate and wouldnt have 10-15 plastic t's everywhere and would look more professional and work better as well.
Lastly thier going to wrap all the vacuum hoses and meth hose inside DEI insulated heat wraps made for wiring and hoses to keep this from happening again.
Hopefully this will be the last of the issues im ready to drive this new beast!!
Heres my truck strapped to the dyno like the dyno queen whore she is, lol
This is all i could fit in camera phone pic sorry
This was on 7.1 psi via hks electronic boost controller
so in summary i went from 468hp to 505hp gain of 37rwhp and from 488tq to 566 which is a gain of 78tq! I just think the other converter was horribly matched to the power output of my last setup.. Thank god i dug out every dynograph to show pat.. I told him set the stall to whatever you think is best and he definatly chose well
Just bought this as well.. Probably wont do anything for the track but for street performance should help keep the turbo spool responsive.. My exhaust housing is already ceramic coated but this should help retain even more heat..
