we've both made a few small changes since last race. I'll let him chime in on what he's done. I got my blower looked over and found the inlet wasn't ported at all, which is where all the power comes from. So, I got that opened up and back on the car. With the opened up inlet My boost went from 13lbs to 15 with the same pulley so it obviously helped. Porter said I should pick up 30-40 whp with just the port but I dont know if I'd expect that much. I'm hoping between both our little add ons it'll put us right around where we were last year.
as for nitrous runs I wont be ready for any quite yet. I'm still working on making my tune perfect and haven't had time to work on a nitrous tune yet. That can come later tho. So after mrt chimes in I'll be curious on what everyone thinks the outcome will be. Personally, I hope I edge him out just a tad .

Long time no chat everyone haha Being a Chevy owner now I rarely come on here anymore, unless of course i'm part of the action lol. Off the bottle I think greddy will get me this time...on the sauce who knows. My motor was still breaking in, and we never got a real nitrous run anyways. I'll post our last race here just so you can see what happened last time. First run is off the bottle, and I slightly kiss the rev limiter on the 2-3 shift where greedy gets a slight lead, but towards the top of 4th I start to pull a tad, but then it's over. Next run is the nitrous run, but mine wasn't working right at all so that was a no go. Also, one other important point to note here is that our total race weight should be very similar with greddy's weight reduction and my 100 lb gain from the iron block. Here is the vid from last year.
Greddy you sticking with that same shot for sure? Right now i'm on a 100 shot, but may bump it to a 125...not before our race though lol I'm hoping that old midpipe was causing a bottleneck on those nitrous pulls on the dyno, and with the new pipe that it will make the numbers that it should
2000 Camaro SS, 6-speed with 4.10's, Pacesetter long tubes, ORY pipe, Magnaflow 14419 w/FM merge, forged TMS 370 LQ9, TSP stage 2.5/5.3 (862) heads, TMS custom cam, Fast 90 intake and TB, SLP lid, ASP UD crank pulley, SSRA, LS2/LS6 MAF, Detroit Truetrack with stock 10 bolt, custom tune, NX wet kit w/125 shot, chrome ZR1 rims with BFG dr's
I don't think it's the block that is restricting him I think he's just trying to ease that 10 bolt thru another season lol. But yeah my shot should stay the same. I was thinking of upping it but to be honest I was happy with it last year and with the combo of the report and lower pulley I think I'll be right where I want to be without touching the jets.
When it comes to LQ9 motors and Lsx motors, what's the difference. Didn't Tspence have a LQ9 motor as well? Where is that engine from?
Lq9 is a 6.0 iron block out of GM trucks, Denali, etc. It is very popular due to the less than $1k price tag and ability to hold big power, boost, etc. holding 6-700 hp isn't a major problem for a stock lq9.
