Well - still working on the tune over email. Place is swamped now but hopefully will get in soon. Some pics of the fenderwell, still unsure how I feel about how exposed it is.

Well, I wouldn't drive the car in rain, that's for sure.

Can you shorten that at all? They have those rain guard sleeves that fit over cone filters. Maybe look into that. I wouldnt feel too comfortable with this setup.

Your air filter looks awfully low.

See link below on how MP_GTO did his CAI.

Its about half inch higher than the bumper. Thanks for the link, I like what he did to block off the wheel well. I was looking for the KN Drycharger to fit this cone. I think the problem may be that its just too large. If I found a nice way to enlargen the hole I could probably pull the filter up about an inch and half.

You having an issue? 04 system is pretty easy to fill without needing to “burp”.

The supercharger system, it doesnt seem like its flowing much.

The tune was running really rich so I just uploaded the touched up tune. Unfortunately the car wont stay running now... always something. Good weather coming to an end :(

Best of luck to y'all doing the pd blower thing. I love my 1900's, wish I put the 2300 on the cgm. but I spin these smaller ones pretty quick and add some methanol to cool things.
Built big block power at the touch of the pedal. It's pretty fargin' fun

Fun is an understatement, especially when I took mine out this past weekend for the first time driving in temps in the upper 60’s vs 90’s. Feels like the car picked up 50hp from the cooler temps.

wish they had the track open for street cars in cooler weather here. I feel lucky when the da is 4000', normally run in 90+ degrees even at midnight. blowers love that cool air. Next step was to add nitrous to say f-u to the heat and hopefully go deep 10's. haven't got there yet.

Had to change the 2.9 pulley to 3.1 to keep a belt on, kept shredding them at the track. OD crank pulley, OD cog rears needs a wider belt and pulleys to get the grip if you're spinning the piss out of these things. I was all of 13psi on the last track day..woohoo! :cool:

love turbo's too, got compounds on my cummins w/s475. over 50psi and sings a song at wot, tons of torque, but 3 seconds slower than the gto's lol..weight matters, well over 7k lbs.
thought about hairdryers for the goat but packaging was a pia at the time.

Doubt it?

We both need a good cam/heads/more boost before we’d be at “tire roasting” power.

We’re currently just sitting at “man this is fun torque” level of power.
