No dyno time today. :-P  We have been battling software issues with the innovative data loggers for the last 2 days.  We did start the engine today and lashed the valves, and restarted again a few times to check the data loggers to see what kind of info we were getting.  A little more tweaking tomorrow and on the dyno it goes for some pulls.  Here's a nice photo of our stainless pipes turning color.

Enroll in a TEXTING school so you can build strength in your thumbs. The switches are more easily activated if u are

strong in the thumbs.

Have GREAT PULLS.

What kind of issues with the Innovate? Just so you know your O2 sensor may not work very well at idle/low RPM due to reversion - don't confuse this with an issue with the Innovate. I struggled with this very same thing for a few days. Everything was working properly but the O2 sensor was not saturated enough to give proper readings.

Good luck on your pulls.

It's not an AFR problem, it's more of a calibration problem.  Either way it will be on the dyno this afternoon. :cheers:

We had an interesting dyno session today.  We had to calibrate the dyno rpm to our FAST rpm which took a little time to do.  Once that was done we were able to do some tuning.  We got the engine running smooth with a couple mini pulls to check the AFR and then we were ready for a mild 6000 rpm pull.  Well we got up to 5150 and the car almost came off the rollers.  I was working the dyno loading switches behind a semi closed door and didn't see it.  Our tuner and JL222 said it was a little scary.  The way the power curve was jumping looked like it would have been a very impressive number.  Our torque at 5150 was 1400ft lbs.  We will be back at it tomorrow and will have a few video pulls in the next few days. :cheers:

Troy and John,
That thing is a BEAST!!! I can't wait to see you a B'ville. Your mods for 2010 should really help you make the 300 club.


See you at the salt!!!

We need to do a couple more passes to tune with the water injection.  Our last good pull was @6200 RPMs 2000+ torque and 2300+ hp at the wheel.  The engine knocked out the dyno so we need to take the car off   the dyno to get to the computer inside the dyno.  All in all we are very pleased. :cheers:  I should have a couple videos soon. :-D
