Tune/Midpipe Results
 
1 Attachment(s)
So since my last and very depressing visit to the track (13.6 at 106, 2.1 60') I did two mods. An off road mid pipe and a dyno tune. Made two passes today. Was very pleased with the gains. First pass was a 13.0 at 111 mph on an awful 2.2 60'. The second and final pass was a 12.91 at 111 mph on a 2.1 60! No vids, but heres a slip.

Damn. So is most of that gain because of the tune?

Nice job Stoney! I'm going next Saturday to avenge my horrible 14.1 last November. I'll post some slips and vids next weekend. Hurry up and get some tires and then maybe I'll pony up for a set of dr's

Yes and no. The car already had a KN intake pre tune. I'd say 90% of the gain was tune only, but being that the intake was worthless without the tune...I'm thinking just the tune is responsible for 5 tenths and the mid-pipe/intake is reponsible for the other two tenths. The trap speed kind of shocked me though.

Thanks buddy. Dont sweat that 14.1, we all have off days at the track. If you ever buy DRs, you'll never go back. I bet your car would run damn close to 13 flat with a good tire.

Congrats on the big pick up in MPH. I bet she could get real close to 12.6 with a perfect launch on the street tires. I got the Camaro down to 12.3s with a crappy set of used 555Rs so the goat will be getting down the track once the DRs go on.

Much Improved Trey! Bet it was nice getting that first slip and seeing that mph. Like I said before a set of tires and you're at 12.5's all day if not 12.2/3

I'm thinking the same thing, 12.6 glory pass. The launch is tricky as hell with this car. Its a balance of getting the rear to squat, keeping it there, and rolling into the power without the rear leveling back out. I'm getting tires asap.

Dang man, I didn't know you got that SS down to a 12.3. You gotta keep us up to date on these things sir! Whats it trap now?

Thanks man, I was pretty happy when I got that first slip and saw 111 mph. Love that feeling when you get a good slip, nothing like it. Shopping hard for tires. Should be on before the end of the month hopefully.

Congrats Stone! That's a damn nice increase for those two mods!

Stone629 04-06-2014 08:35 PM

Question now is, go ahead and hook this dry kit up, wait a little while a cam it, or wait a little while longer than that and put a blower on it.

ctgreddy 04-06-2014 08:48 PM

I vote nitrous for now and then procharger down the road.

Stone629 04-06-2014 08:52 PM

I've still got that dry kit you sent me. Might as well since its here. Just need to grab a bottle, and get the tune adjusted. I know I bought some 75 jets, and the ones you sent are 100s I think.

Fastest trap the car has ever seen was a street tire pass my wife made. 12.69@111.71. I went 12.66@111.57 on the P zeros and on the DRs it went 12.39@110.90. The LS motors pick up a ton from a few small mods and a tune. I also vote to put that kit to use and work on cam or blower later. Should be a good season for you.:icon_beerchug:

Yeah I think I sent a 100. If you've still got it throw the thing on there! bottles are 100 bucks so do it.

Ugh, don't tell me that. Jkjk I blame that track conditions that night, hella cold and a nasty headwind. Track was slippery as ****. I'm going to Sacramento raceway this weekend for a tnt. Hopefully the track will be prepped nicely.

I knew I should've bought greddy's dry kit. Just got lazy. But when you hook up the kit you'll need tires stat!

That thing is coming along. Yep, same problem here.........I swear I am going to get some DRs SOON :)

S8ER01Z 04-08-2014 07:07 AM

Nice times... that trap is sweet. I should have gone LS2 or LS3... your GTO is going to start embarrassing me with a few more mods. :(

Thanks man. I was pretty disappointed with it before the tune, etc. We need to all get together and do a group buy on some tires, lol.

Ah whatever man. You have weight on your side. And a better suspension for hooking from a dig. You just need to get that tune straight once and for all!

Great reduction and trap speed :D
