    I don't know what happened. I could tell that the fire originated right at the SC, but that's about it. I can't wait to hear what numbers you put down. Mine goes in for its tune in about 2 weeks. This motor is a little less "built" up, so I'll be happy with anything over 350.

    Interesting.... Yeah I wish I was taking it in today, but oh well. I am going to install my TRex pump just to make sure I have enough gas for it lol... I am hoping for 300+whp

    Can't hurt. Do you have a stock fuel pump? My last car had a stock pump and a trex and together they couldn't keep up with 30# injectors. I upgraded to 42 and a 255 and it was more than enough. I'm doing a 190 and 42's on this car. We'll see how it works.

    I would highly recommend the T-Rex then. Probably upping the in-tank volume too. Your tuner will tell you tomorrow. I guarantee that he knows more than I do!

    Watch the video and see lol... It needs some work on the tune still for drive-ability and cold starts, but that is probably due to the fact that we didnt know what my fuel pressure was, since it wasnt stock pressure and with an adjustable fpr.. So Ill go back when I have a gauge to see how and what to adjust it to...

    Right on. I watched the videos. It sounds great and looks to have plenty of power, but I can't tell how it drives. I've had a ****ty tune where the car made a ton of power, but hesitated and drove like ****. I'm glad you're happy with it. So much fun!

    A lot of the driveability problems could be attributed to the 60 lb injectors, way over kill for your setup given the stock E7 heads! The driveability and cold starts are hard to get right with 60lb injectors because it's hard to scale the injector counts with the Maf in the window you're given. While it can be done, most cars that I see with 60 lb injectors are dropped off an the tune is done over the course of 2-3 days to get real true cold starts and make sure the driveability is spot on. This obviously comes at an extra cost but is worth it in my opinion. It seems all too often that tuners set up WOT give you a dyno sheet and throw you out on the street. Tuning in my opinion is very time consuming and has to be meticulous and most tuners just aren't that way anymore. My car with 1300+ rwhp for example has 235 lb injectors, you lean in the window and tap the switch and the car fires right up, hot or cold. It drives down the road with the manners of a new Buick lesabre but then again that is hours and hours of dyno time and tuning. I say in all 40+ dyno pulls and 80+ hours of tuning to get to that point ( granted we were testing different blowers in there too so I'm sure that time would have been greatly reduced not to mention we weren't in a hurry)
