The car is idling perfectly with the FRPP Whipple 10psi tune. I have not yet drove it and will not until the roads clear up. I'll be getting Eric Brooks to tune it.
Here is a video of the start up.

Ya, I have the Steeda 10 rib belt drive 11-13psi kit. I might even order a smaller pulley for it.

Got my Eric Brooks tune via E-mail a couple days back. Still waiting on my Injectors that should have been here. Cleaned the car today pretty good!

Looks nice! You've definitely got some clams wrapped up in that. On that 10 rib belt drive...could you measure the distance from the front edge of the 6 rib belt to the front edge of the 10 rib so I can find out how much farther forward the new belt will sit? I'd appreciate that.

There is 1-1/2" separating the belts. From the end of the 6rib to the end of the 10rib is 2-7/8". From the end of the 6rib to the furthest point out on the 10rib (Tensioner sticks out an inch) is 3-7/8"

I have about 3'' left to go forward. Take a look at my hood in this pic. The vent in the hood has my stock Whipple pulley 3'' behind the vent sticking up through the lower layer of the hood duct. Looks like I may have to go 8 rib with this hood.
Thanks for the measurements...I appreciate it. Steeda couldn't tell me over the phone. Gus didn't know.

If I understand your description correctly the blower pulley is 3-7/8'' out farther now???
Just to be sure because I have room for the tensioner to stick out more, just not the blower pulley.
04-06-2010, 10:03 PM #12
The Blower pulley is sticking out 2 7/8" more than before.

Man, way to go - nice build up. Look forward to seeing how it runs. Congrats on the build.

Got the tune and injectors in the car today and did an oil change. Still waiting for the throttle body though. I took the car for a drive to see how it was without the throttle-body. It's runs really rich and stalls when I let it out of gear to come to a stop. But I'll see how it is when I get the TB in.

Well I FINALLY got my GT500 TB today. I am going backwards I swear!!!
Put it on, first thing I noticed is that the fuel line is scrapping off of it. This is due to the taller 60lb injectors. So I bought Fore Precision fuel rails from Lethal! so the fuel intake comes off the front of the rail instead of the top. I can also change the fuel pressure sender location so the intake is not sitting on the sender the way it is now.
Second problem is that the TB does not fit!!!!!! I will probably try switching the TPS over from the stock one to the GT500 one and see if it works! (Stock one is 1/4"-3/8" narrower!) Anyone done this?
I also have another project on the go on the inside of the car. But that is for another thread!!!!!!!
