Tuner said I can drive it around with the camshaft sensor codes until I get it to him (possibly be able to get on the dyno in 2 weeks). I just want to put miles on it. I need to get the ebc started before the dyno, heat cycle everything, get the old fuel out... I changed and touched a lot of things over this build so I'm excited.

I put the car all back together and have to check the trans fluid before I put it back on the ground. Hopefully this weekend.

Dyno went well yesterday. It was hot and humid but the Car is back up to 15 psi and made 800 hp and 900 tq again. Solid baseline to start testing and playing with.

That torque is serious, my old Camaro made over 850 and about 800 lbs of torque so making 900 is gonna kick you in the pants at WOT. Nice build and you've taken your time and got it right. Just wade into it slowly and those numbers will go up from here.

I've always been more of a fan of torque than hp. The more I compare my build to others, the major difference is the tq. Most camaros making 800 wheel are making substantially less torque than me. I believe Tq breaks parts not HP. I might want to pull timing out until after peak torque rpm to keep things under control a little more. 900 hp 900 tq would be a killer setup. making 900 tq at the tire ( drag radials with 17psi) means this SBE LT4 is making over 1k+ tq at the crank.

woah just looking at my sig. Looks like it picked up ~40 rwtq from the last combo at 15psi. interesting

Hell yeah. It’s alive! Congrats.

I have my timing pretty low to keep tq down in the middle but with the upgraded parts I don’t know that it is needed. The thing is if your a drag racer you only pass through that mid tq once and it happens quick.

Good point. The peak torque would only be used during the 60' which is where I need the most improvement. When we turn it up, I'll def talk to my tuner to keep the tq under control. The more I drive my car, the more Im starting to agree with you using the paddles for aux buttons. We can use the slap shifter to manually change gears. Well see.

I do not take my hands off the wheel when racing. I think that puts me in a better position if the car does get lose.

I have upgraded my paddles slightly. Now under 5500rpm the left is line lock/3step and the right is 2 step. Above 5500rpm they turn into boost scramble 1 and 2. I might change it to a mph switchover but that would take an extra relay or two.

Stacking miles on the car all week. No issues. My AC still sucks and barely works. When I get it inspected, I'll have the system recharged. Hopefully that is the issue. Its been an issue from day one and I'm not sure if its the custom line or something else.

I have yet to floor it because I've always had passengers. I'll get out this week after work to do some pulls and logs.

My gravity oil drain is working perfectly.
