  1. The plastic idler pulley adjacent to the water pump pulley is too narrow. I ordered a dayco steel pulley that's almost twice as wide and about the same circumference. I am also using the GT 500 tensioner with the adapter plate. That combo seems to be working pretty good. I'm not sure why the ARS tensioner did not work as well for me. Those tensioners (street and race version) have significant more spring pressure, so I can't explain the better results with the GT 500. Bruce
  2. Was your suspension pretty much stock?
  3. Made it to the track yesterday and finally put down some consistent times. Ran several 10.9x passes and a couple 10.8x passes. My best pass was a 10.82 @ 124 mph with a 1.57 60'. I had to put about 175 pounds in the trunk to get good traction and I had my slicks down to about 17 psi. I also had my stock rims/tires up front...wish I had my skinnies on. If I tried to go any lower on the pressure it got too squirrelley on the top end. I need some advice for what I can do to my suspension for a better launch. Currently I have lakewood 70/30 shocks up front with V6 springs. The rear is stock with the exception of solid cradle bushings. I'm sure track prep could of been better. My best pass to date was a 10.73 @ 128 mph with a 1.78 60'. That was about a month ago and I had my skinnies on with my slicks (about 18 psi) and about 75 pounds in the trunk. The outside tenp was probably about 10- 15 degrees cooler than my recent trip to the track. Just needing some tips on what I can do.
  4. I was able to completely disable the TC with the trinity. Not sure what the issue is. Is there any advantage of activating the TC after your burnout?
  5. Pulled off a 10.73 sec pass @ 128 mph with a 1.78 60'. That was my best pass of the night and my first pass. I got the new slicks and my burnout was mediocre at best....having trouble with my race tune not completley disabling my TC. My second pass was 11.01 and the remaining 2 passes were duds. I think the track prep was decent to start, but as the night went on it stated to get slick. Does anyone enable their TC after after they do their burnout? My last pass I got half way down the track and lost all my boost. I hope my new bypass valve didn't crap out on me.
  6. yeah, I'm hoping the new slicks do the trick. If not, then I'm not sure what else to do...I guess a suspension upgrade would be helpful.
  7. Made it to the track the other night and the best I could do was 11.01 @ 126 mph with a 1.78 60'. Traction is still the issue. This particular pass was the last one of the night and after I added about 100 pounds in the trunk. I was down to 16 psi on the slicks. The slicks that I'm using are Hoosier 28 x 10, but they are probably 5-6 years old. I think that could be part of my problem, so I'm planning on ordering a new set to try out the next time I hit the track. I have lakewood 70/30 shocks up front and lighter springs. The back is stock except for solid cradle bushings.
  8. The inline fuel filter did the trick. No more blowing fluid all underneath the car. This is what i used.
  9. If the inline fuel filter doesn't work then i was wondering if this would work.
  10. Ever since the install of the 8.8 I've had issues with diff fluid spewing all underneath the rear of my car. I had Erik change out my gears a year ago and I finally got around to changing the fluid for the first time. When I drained the fluid there was about 1 quart that came out. It should hold 1.8 quarts, so after about 3000 miles I lost almost a quart of fluid. I looked around on the internet and found a possible solution. I used an inline fuel filter and installed it backwards on the end of the vent hose. I cut about half the hose off so the filter would be sitting vertical and any fluid that is trapped in the filter can drain back into the housing. I just put this on not to long ago, so we'll see how it works. I know some people use a catch can, but this will be much better if it works.
  11. Made it to the track once so far and was having issues with losing boost halfway down the track. Turns out my bypass valve was leaking. It's kinda strange that it would work sometimes and other times it wouldn't. Anyway, I installed a new bypass that's reinforced with kevlar and I also rerouted my vacuum line from the SC and I'm back in business. Planning on hitting the track soon again and this time I'll just trailer it down...bought my buddies aluminum trailer a few weeks ago. Makes it a whole lot easier to swap tires at home and just load/unload the car, race, load back up and on my way back home. Best I could do last run was a 11.29 @ 126mph with a 1.97 60'. Had the slicks too. The track prep sucks, but I think I needed to heat them up a bit more and ease it out of the hole. On one of my passes I had a 1.67 60', but lost boost half way down and ended up with a 12.0 @ 101 mph...that would of been my 10 sec pass if the car hadn't fallen on it's face.
  12. Anything new with this build? Just curious how it turned out or if your still in the process of finishing it.
  13. The cam was removed from the car with less than 10,000 miles on the car. Price is 100.00 Shipping 20.00 Just send me a PM if interested or text me at 417-298-1522 Thanks, Bruce
  14. It's the racing version. May have it sold. I'll post up pics if the sale doesn't go through.
  15. The tensioner is by far the one of the best on the market, but for my application it didn't work out. I'm selling the tensioner for $350.00 plus shipping. I had it on the car for about 4 months or so. I can post up a picture if needed. Thanks, Bruce SOLD
