Yeah it's ready to go
Putting it on the dyno 2moro to make sure everything is all good

Should b a good day
Just hope it doesn't rain

Tyres arrived 2day
Only 26x9.5x16 tho but should still give some good traction
They didn't have the 28x11.5 in stock

Even I'll bet on that
I always have dramas
Dynos never go smoothly for me

But I'm not putting in all this work and money to do a no show again!

:0 6lb and it didnt "hiccup" or anything, and you pulled urself very well? niccce. Im sure the guys in the states are through the roof when their 8 sec supras hit 6 lb and dont get breakdown and "hiccup" or mybe 60lb

It's getting taken to 25lb 2moro to see what it does

The tune that's currently in the car was a tune from the previous owners car which the setup was smaller and auto
All that was changed in the settings on the laptop was to id2000 injectors and e85 fuel by Ian hamwood from autronic
That's why I only went to about 6lb
It hadn't been on the dyno to check mixtures or anything so i didn't want to risk the motor

Yes
Might have to stop earlier than that
Depends what power it's at around there as I don't want to blow up the bottomend
So it will be on anywhere from 20-25lb

But being a gt45 rear, it only just starting to get into its efficiency around 25lb

---------- Post added 09-02-12 at 21:53 ----------

There will b 1 of 2 outcomes
or "bang" lol

I'm almost disappointed im heading the the Southern 80 tomorrow. Almost.

Seeing you had 700+ on 23 with your old setup Troy, with the new gear you should have more than enough power to smash just about anything out there. It should be a good day.

I'd hope you would beat me in a straight line troy. My thing is definitely no drag car. If they put a corner at the end of the 400 I would probably stand a chance

Nope
Pretty pissed off at the moment to say the least
But gotta love spending near 1k in the last week getting your car ready for an event, getting tyres, fuel, organizing a trailer then the motor ****ing itself on the dyno

Love it! But what did I expect? Something always happens to my cars on the dyno!

Was going great, making good power at low boost and revs, coming on earlier then it started knocking again

This 1 looks like it was my fault, I didn't clean out the oil pump b4 I fitted it
Stupid mistake and 1 I'll never make again
New pump is getting ordered

We were all set to put together 1 of my spare motors and pull an all nighter to get it back running, Pete was going to come and tune it 1st thing but I didn't have any main bearings, only rod and thrust bearings

I was so fu<kin pissed off!

The car was making 375@11lb@5000rpm, and yes at and it was the same at 33degrees

I'll still head up 2moro for a look
Have fun everyone, once again I can only spectate
