    Default New motor, new PB - 9.28 @ 147

    It actually happened...finally. I cant believe 8 months ago almost to the day was the last time i raced this car. And of course I went up on one of the hottest days. The chance of rain was 60% but radar looked good so I went up on July 4th for the track rental. My DA calculator at 2pm said 2300' and I bet it went up after that because when we got back into the truck at 5pm it was 92 degree's out.

    Anyways, as I always do I went over the car and planned for a nice easy cruise down the track just to make sure everything feels good. Got up to maybe 40-50mph and all felt well. Went up for 2nd pass about 45 minutes later and just wanted to get on it for a few seconds and make sure everything looked good (gauges) and felt good. I rolled out easy and then hammered it and as you'll see in the video....well you'll see..haha!

    Third pass I was gonna go for it but got out of it just past the 1/8 bc I felt a little vibration in the car and didnt know what it was. Still resulted in a new best 1/8 ET and MPH to the tune of a 5.91 @ 118 w/ a 1.36 60'. Still coasted to a 9.6.

    Fourth pass I planned ot stay in it and man did she roll out! 60' wasn't there at 1.38 and I went a little high on the 1-2 shift. It spun a bit then caught after about 5-10 feet and that 1st gear is short! So it went 5.95 @ 117 and a new best 1/4 of 9.28 @ 147.

    The engine temp would start at 175 and hit 185 at the top of the run. IAT1 was 98 at start of the run and 92 by the traps. IAT2 started at 100 and ended at 125 which is similar to my Eaton passes (20 degree increase) and boy does that boost NOT drop at all. 20psi all the way down. And we took a few degree's of timing out of it so this is NOT the 750whp setup. I'd guess around 700-715 at most. All in all Im very happy what Ive done so far and now its time to work on the 60's. Should easily be able to get it to go a 1.29 and in the 9.0s on this tune up. Time will tell. Oh and Im not sure how accurate the scale was but it said 3110 w/ me in it and half a tank and n2o bottle so that 100lbs less than last year. WOW.

    Here is a quick video I slapped together.

    Congrats!
    Using your 1/8 trap the calculator I use shows 812 Fwhp and 739fwhp using the 1/4 trap. Mine shows close to the same numbers. I guess it's just that our torque converter slips more on the big end.

    Congrats Jake

    Your car is really moving out for sure!! Do you have any plans on turning the gas on on this motor?

    I dont think it was slipping too much with 30mph out the back door.

    and I just looked my log over....my tuner set the IAT2 temp at 120 and the car got to that at the top of 2nd gear....all of third gear it was pulling a degree of timing...lol
