Better hurry up OP. My car, same mods for the most part, will be tuned on Tuesday
Pump gas restrictions as in if I do full bolt ons, Gen 2r, 2.4 pulley , and 10% Lower, that’s safe on 93 pump and stock engine? Years from now once I build the engine and do cams and bigger blower. I have always thought the safe limit for 93 octane was around 700-750 at least for our cars.
VMP Gen 2R getting everything tuned this Saturday.
My blown Coyote picked up close to 80rwhp on the same boost going from 93 to e85. Daily drove it for 2 years with no issues on E85. e85 is the shit if you have it available
All depends on what your willing to risk. There are some people that run 2.4/10% on 93 and never race it so its fine. But thats 21-22 psi and and your going to be limited on timing. Being a 2008 you dont have knock sensors and one bad tank of gas your going to get to see your rods real quick if your out beating on it doing long highway pulls. Personally I wouldnt go past a 2.6/10% but I dont really want to risk putting the rod through the block.
Nice mods. I have a 2007 GT500 build that I just finished the installation of a stock 2013 Trinity blower.
I added the dual fan heat exchanger, 10%, JLT 123, 65 TB, Off-Road exhaust, 373 gears and other mods over the past few years. Hopefully they compliment the new SC well.
I have to add a wideband and BAP yet before I can get a new tune sent.
I currently have a SCTx4 handheld but I’m considering going with the nGuage for ease of data logging.
What type of guages are you using for your setup?
I apologize if I jacked your thread. It looked like we’re on similar builds so figured I’d chime in.
Have fun OP!
I remember when I bought my second stock GT500 and test driving it thinking how utterly slow it was. It wakes up with the basic pulley etc, but when I did a TTVS it’s crazy the change.
Nice choice in gears but why didn't you go with something a little steeper like 3.90's? Doesn't it have a 6-speed?
Blower looks nice Klaus. My car might end up right next to yours, depending how long yours sticks around!
Well dropped the car off on Saturday 10/13/18. Had almost everything.. minus the BAP, which I left at home haha. So after the 3 hour drive back home I over nighted it back to Fastlane Motorsports in Benson, Nc.
Got the BMR lcas and panhard bar also. Might have to end up going with bigger injectors though, I guess I’ll see how well the 14 gt500 ones hold up.
I have not got any gauges yet will probably just go with the standard 3 tier Shelby pod for now or the Lund tune Ngauge.
Honestly just need to spend the money on a clutch and driveshaft first.
Fastlane is a good place to go! you need to move up to the triad, we have E85 everywhere up here. Cant wait to see what she puts down.
Before Stock Eagle F1s
In case anyone was wondering or new members see this wondering the same, NT05Rs fit on stock 9.5 wheels, they do.
Eventually I will be getting them widened to 11”.
You are going to love those mods. I drove my 2011 stock for 2 years before modifying it similar to yours. The best part is it is like getting a new car again. I would recommend a bigger heat exchanger next. Nice car Enjoy It!
Good luck with your build.... I am glad I am done
I drove mine for a little over 3 1/2 years stock... soo.. haha to say it feels like a brand new car is an understatement.
So glad I went with the VMP triple pass duel fan HE the Resiche 170 Tstat and the 3x reservoir keeping temps wayyy down.
Well the car made 680rwhp and 722RWTQ. My fault for procrastinating for 3.5 years and not getting new tires for the dyno. They said something with the wheels being old affecting the reading, dry rot, low tread possibly, not sure.
Either way there were some factors in there that had I had new tires I wouldn’t be writing this. And the reading would of been more accurate.
Once I get the Dynatech long tube headers and lethal mid pipe installed I’ll have it re dynoed.
Time to start the exhaust, went with Dynatech longtube headers 1- 7/8 since they had a good Black Friday deal. Waiting for the Dynatech 2.5 catted X pipe.
