Well we finally got the Kenne bell installed, amazing!!!!!! and we haven't tuned it yet. We haven't put it on the dyno yet but hope to do it today, and then take it to the track on Sunday. Very impressed by the easy install and fitment, very high quality. Joe

Can you elaborate a little more on your setup? What pulleys are you using and did you use the KB chip or go with another?

You got the Accel Gen VII DFI on it, Joe? Job coming to tune it? That part interests me most of all.

Good luck and can't wait to see your DFI results!

Hammer; we are going to tune it with Autologic first. I have a 92 mm Pro M meter calibrated for our 50 lb injectors, Jimmy LaRocca says we'll make more power that way, i'm willing to give it a shot, then put Gen7 on to see the difference. We are using a 6lb lower and 3.25 upper along withe a Bassani high flow X and Mac cat- back. Joe

That's a bold statement. More power that way than with DFI? I got $5K that says NO CHANCE!!

MM&FF wouldn't bother with an article like that. A SEQUENTIAL DFI system vs. a piggy-back computer chip? It's like doing a 03 Cobra vs. golf cart shootout.

DFI will PISS ALL OVER EPEC, let alone a chip!

HAAHAHAHAH!!!

You guys kill me!

Hammer; I agree with you about the eventual winner, between a chip and DFI, Job Spetter tunes a lot of cars at my shop, and flat out amazes me, but Jimmy L is no slouch, so I'll give it a shot. Our testing took a hit today, as the first time I got into boost, the KB blew the front seal completely out of the front snout!!! I,ve got the updated vent system, so I,m at a loss???? Joe

That vent system doesn't work, Joe. It restricts the blow off valve and you GOTTA let crank case pressure release when it has to. Just leave the valve unrestricted. Don't worry, it doesn't make too much of a mess. A little mist on the blower that cleans up on 10 seconds. Who sent you that damn thing??

Sorry to hear that, Joe. MAN, YOU AIN'T GOT GOOD LUCK WITH 03 COBRAS!!!!

And I agree 100%, Jim LaRocca is no slouch. He's one of the TOP DOGS (not big dog...TOP DOG). But Job is a TOUGH act to follow...and I truly believe that DFI is superior to any MAF technology.

Let me know if there is anything I can do to help you, my friend.

First off---

Joe---Good luck with your 03 and the tuning and I hope you get some good numbers out of the car and the Kenne Bell...


To Hammer and Nitrous Pete--- I'll PUT ANY LAROCCA car up against the crap that comes out of your neck of the woods....I'll take up your $5K bet Hammer.....I'll take any Autologic Tuned car or EPEC tuned car over a POS Diablo tuned car any day of the week...As for DFI, I'll also take MAF technology over DFI any day of the week for $5K as well...

Larocca went 7.70's over 4 years ago with MAF technology....Last years Renegade Champ car also was tuned with that POS EPEC, and went 8.80's with a .550 hydraulic cam...But I guess they don't make power :rolleyes:

For those who don't like MAF technology, they simply don't understand it, probably cause its too complex for them :rolleyes:

Last time Pete and Larocca went at it head to head, Pete destroyed him.

Larocca wanted a rematch, Larocca lost hard.

Pete went 8.90, Larocca was in the 9 teens.

The video exisists.

Maybe we can get the video up.

The race was in Canada, ask Jimmy about it I am SURE he remembers.

Thats the facts.

I'm not too sure Jimmy will want to go up against Pete again.

Bring your videos, your smack talk, whatever you like, bottom line is that I and ALOT of other Racers will put up big money for any Larocca car against something that Pete can bring out...

9.99 with 25lbs of boost and a 50 shot?? Damn, thats flying :rolleyes:

You started with the smack talk.

The fact is, when Pete and Larocca went at it within the rules of a class, Pete won. Period, thats the facts.

Your contention that cars from this neck of the woods are crap is totally off base. Furthermore your contention that those that think that DFI is better don't understand MAF's is insulting and ridiculous.

Typical of a person who has no real argument, you resort to "so and so will kick your ass". In this case , your "big gorilla" already had his ass kicked by Pete.

First off, if you could actually READ, the Smack Talk was started by Hammer and Pete dissing on Autologic and Larocca and the EPEC....They took shots at him and my return talk is just pointing out REAL Facts..

How again do I not have an argument??? My rebuttle to Hammer's challenge, was that I stand behind any Larocca Car making MORE power and going faster than anything Pete can bring out with Diablo or DFI on it, plain and simple...

As for the personal big gorilla insults, thats Typical of an incompetent person who resorts to name calling when the argument gets heated....

7.70's with a MAF, Last time I looked that was faster than Pete ever went....
