10-15-12 MicroSquirt2 LSX plug and play harness testing
some quick video of testing a Microsquirt 2 in the sealed case, reading the
stock crank trigger firing the stock coils in waste spark, pretty exciting,
i even drove the car around a little tonight and its doing very good for
some beta testing.
8-26-12 Corey races the fairmont
2 of my friends drove down in the car today and my friend Corey raced, this
is with the 4l80e working out the bugs on the launch and the shift points,
it hits the 1-2 shift rev limiter and we lowered the shift, seems like i
might be out of fuel at 16psi, doing 106 in the 8th pretty easily and
jumping on the brakes, hot as shit out today and 1600DA
4-28-12 fairmont 2 wild last pass
took the fairmont out to island to work on the Boost controller, got it setup for 21lbs of Boost finally, and also sprayed some
launches, need some practice on that, and need a bottle warmer, this last
pass was after the track was closed down for a bit to cleanup some oil so
slightly slippery and cold, i launched on the 75shot and shut it off in 1st
gear as soon as i was rolling, the car started spinning in 2nd gear so i
let off hard and then hit 3rd and figured this pass sucked, the next one if
i get to make one will probably suck too, so i stayed in the gas pedal and
ran it out teh back door, it went 11.0 @ 134 with only a 103 8th mile mph.
pedaling and chopping the throttle in 2nd
5.3 Turbo LSx Fairmont on the Dyno.....
Here is the Fairmont on the Dyno yesterday. Numbers were all
wonky, but the torque was a corrected 692 RWTQ. With this car, torque and
HP generally mimic each other. Smoke show is a new development that popped
up after I changed the oil. I was thinking it was due to the very loose
ring gap and the 5w-30 I changed it with. So, I went to a conventional
10w-40 after this pull. Still smokes as a result of "gravity," as in when
in reverse, coming to a stop, turns or when it is on an incline. I think I
have an oil return line issue. Going to pull it off and see if there is a
clog or obstruction.

Not very often you find a total sleeper truck of this magnitude. This
regular cab Z71 has a Forged 402 stroker motor with an 80mm turbo. He runs Drag Radials all the way around
and this thing launches like a rocket. Its pretty crazy to watch a truck
spin 4 drag radials going down the track.
Also he drove the truck to the track which is about 35 miles from his house
and then drove it back home.
This was filmed at Holiday Beach Raceway on Test N Tune night.
Forced Induction - Supercharger vs. Turbo Charger
This video was made to describe in moderate detail the differences between
Superchargers and turbo Chargers, as well as describing the
components, advantages, and disadvantages to each. Complementing the
speaking track is a slideshow of related pictures and videos. I hope this
video helps some of you curious up and coming mechanics to better
understand methods of forced induction. Please comment maturely, and
