    I had some very promising results last night. My first pass ever with the VMP Gen 3 TVS was a 5.83 @ 120.93, hitting the brakes at the 1/8th. 2500' d.a. 69mm upper / stock lower.

    I got a tune rev via Palm Beach Dyno Live Track Side Support (Thanks Rob Shoemaker!) and went back out for a full pass. The track was going away as it was late. I spun and that makes the car short shift. Even so, it still went a 5.89 @ 120 / 9.15 @ 153. At 2400'.

    How much boost was this? Just saw your other thread where you went [email protected] on the ported gen 2. Do you plan to pulley down more? 153 trap in the summer at altitude is impressive. Come fall she will be in the 8s trapping 155 .

    This was 2500' vs the Gen 2 at 1000'. The Gen 3 made a little more boost, but it's just before the shift.

    I don't think I will pulley down more. I have a 66 & 63 tested and at the ready, but think the 69 will get it done no problem. I'm on the same belt I put on in May. 6 rib.

    Thank you for the kind words. I can't believe these blowers do what they do.

    Are you trusting your aluminator guessing (un-sleeved) at that power level? Very, very quick btw, Awesome!

    I am long enough to make an 8 second pass. I'm currently saving for a sleeved bottom end. Not sure if I'll pull the trigger or not though, may sit on the cash. The plan is to go 1/8th mile only if/after the 8.

    I especially like the 1.3 60' using the stock converter! Is the trans still factory, or has it been strengthened?

    Thanks! It's a ton of fun being that's it's so tight and that the TVS is so responsive.

    After 5 years of passes and street use, I finally had it built last winter, just as a precaution as I drive my car to the track. The clutches still had quite a bit of life left in them, per the builder.

    Thanks! I don't wanna take too much credit. The front half was lower as I spun. A few weeks later I went to another track and on a clean pass it picked up 31. 20180922_143431.jpeg

    Yeah I thought you were the one that got his 8.

    Your car is CRAZY fast that’s for sure.

    Must be a wild ride.

    Wow, very impressive.
    Congrats man. That is a fast car for sure. Definitely hooks up by the looks of the 60'.

    with that kind of power he could be a the tail end of a stock block with H beams and a decent piston. Much further will require a sleeved block with i beams.

    I'm on a Gen 1 Aluminator. Non-sleeved, but it does have Boss head gaskets and ARP studs. I'm going 1/8th mile only going forward, so I'm going back and forth on removing a healthy shortblock. I don't beat on it on the street. It only ever sees wot in 2nd to about 7k.

    I'm definitely at a crossroads.
