DaSilva Sick Kids Car Show 2011
I brought the Camaro out to Joe DaSilva's Car Show and fund raiser for Toronto Sick Kids hospital. His shop is well equipped and spotless. Joe was also featuring Dyno pulls for a small fee and donation. A lot of people took advantage to see what their ride would put down to the rollers. I had a great time and did some fine tuning on my Camaro as well. I am happy to say that I have NO issues with the new RacePumps piston fuel pump (mechanical). The fuel pressure was set at 7 psi and stayed at set point throughout the rpm band. The morning Dyno pull came in at 534rwhp and 457 torque. Joe treated everyone well and even suggested to come back in the afternoon for another pull. I decided to change the tune by increasing the jet and reducing the timing since the A/F ratio was a tad lean and I am using 94 octane pump gas. I was about to go on when I made this short video. Look on my channel and a friend took the actual Dyno run and I have to say I was very pleased. Will have to see, in a couple of weeks if the car can run a 9 sec time. The car put down 595rwhp and 510 lb/ft torque and the crowd just loved it and so did I! The RacePumps fuel pump helped me have what I call a breakthrough! Go to giantmonkey101's channel to see the actual run!
Time trial pass.
Just run a time trial. Not bad!
New slicks and Trick Springs installed....results
The day after the ArmDrop Live at Cayuga. The car ran great and was leaving well. I lost against a faster car on Saturday in first round. Today, Sunday I want to fine tune how the engine comes up on the trans brake and try some different rpm launch set points. The front end work made such a difference and now that the body is raised I can run those big slicks I bought instead of using them as paper weights.
