Love your car! Any updates?

Also, what headlights do you have? Thanks!

While snow is on the ground it's good time for projects like Headlight mods I took my CCFL tubes out and put new controllable LED circuits in. Here is the result









Also my blower came back from Vortech. They changed my impeller and valute, also inspected and replaced oil drain line. Very pleased.

I made DIY because the kit has no installation guide, and i couldn't find it on this forum.

Good luck! Which pulley are you going to use? 3.33 with the Fluidampr? In for numbers!

Ok, here is the numbers. Tuned by Vince from RT Tuning. He made very conservative tune since it's still stock motor. Running pump gas with Meth spraying at 7 PSI.

Holy %[email protected]#! Congrats! Over 500whp on the 3.12 thats insane. How much did you gain from the Meth injection and which mixture did you have? 100% meth?

I wonder if that torque curve would flatten out up top with cams.

Very nice numbers!

I am using 50/50 mix and we use it as a safety measure not fuel additive. I don't know how much gain from meth because I didn't tune without meth with this mods.

I see. I plan on using 100% methanol with the 3.33 and Fluidampr Crank. I dont want that much power maybe 480whp. Since you got 16psi from the 3.12 and Fluidampr i may get 14 with the 3.33. Once again congrats! Bet its a blast to drive.

Car feels different compare to SCI blower. The Boost comes quicker and early. Feels really nice.

Default E85

Went to the Zdayz, run on Airstrip Top Dawg event successfully Came back home and went back to RTTuning to do E85 tune. I have a gas station with E85 next to my house so mainly will be running on E85 and switch to the pump gas on a long trips like Zdayz.

Results are not too crazy. We gain +20 whp with E85 I guess my meth setup works really well then )

Here is some pics:



Zdayz 2016

And some vids


1:20 on this one

Hey man good to see you again. I just noticed you have the DC headers. Are those the ceramic coated ones? If so, I would suggest to remove the heat wrap. I had mine heat wrapped and the drivers side cracked. Called and talked to DC, they said the reason for cracking is the wrap baked them and they said it voided the warranty. Just a heads up.

Yes they are wrapped, thanks for advice I will look into it. How many miles did you put on them before they cracked?
