Car ran like a champ for weeks until the day I took it to a Dyno. That's when lifter ticking began and the car has been down ever since May 11. Made 455 whp with bad lifters and 2 bent pushrods. Spent last few months waiting for parts to arrive. We did:

Gpi ss2 cam
Gpi ported stock heads
Johnson 2110 lifters
Hardened pushrods
Che trunnions
Btr dual valve springs


Loading the gpi tune as we speak. (Prayer hands)

That's the big question. We (me, my mechanics, my former tuner) think the non load bearing hub dyno had something to do with it. It was very suspicious that the dyno operator/owner "accidentally" deleted the dyno logs when I called to ask for them to be sent to me the next day. But apparently these cars have weak dod lifters to begin with so no way to know for sure. It was just it's time (sigh)

that is suspicious, at best. were the bent pushrods on dod holes? bending 2 at once sounds like a money shift.

No they were not, interestingly enough! Sorry-What's a money shift?

Accidentally shifting down instead of up, say, 3 -> 2 when you meant 3 -> 4, thus overrevving the engine and causing catastrophic engine damage (hence the term "money").

Car is running like a champ on this h/c setup (see post #5 for full mods list). From 5,500-7k is really impressive. It drives like stock until you step on it, which I love. Lope at idle is perfect, not too loud. I highly recommend Ryan at GPI for tuning. He was quick to reply to my emails with updated tune files and he nailed it in 2 revisions.

I hit dyno come spring, hoping/expecting 530whp. I should be able to get a 60-130 draggy time this week as well as hopfully get a 1/4 mile time. Not expecting much on street with these ps4s but am very curious to see trap, expecting 122+
