11-5-12 smokey 5.3 non intercooled dyno runs 697rwhp on 3 bad cyls no nitrous
now this motor has always smoked but today whew! she is smokey! hahaha
gunna tear it down adn do new pistons and rods and hand file fit the rings, and see what else i can do, shame on me for never really doing a compression test ill never know if it was good or not before i started, still made 697rwhp on a bad slug! 3cyls have low compression currently lol
11-12-12 motor teardown prep for rebuild
tore it down to find out what we expected, broken ringlands on the tight cylinders and some bent rods, wich is common for gen3 guts at 650+rwhp, looks like everything looks good! im throwing in some gen4 used pistons and rods hopefully getting them tomorrow and hand gapping them loose for Boost!
11-2-12 fairmont motor is ok again
man this thing just wont quit, look how nice this pistons are. as i explain in the video i believe i lifted a head because im finally making big power and also because i bypassed the Intercooler, inlet temps were fine below 120f i was running 26lbs of Boost though! on weak tty bolt and only 65ftlbs tq! haha
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
11-8-12 micro2 beta testing again
a little revving and testing the two step for you guys
got most of the bugs worked out on my roachy motor, so i dont run the risk of hurting a good one!
gotta take this thing out and beat it up and do some more testing but here it is running good so far, just gotta put in some more work and time, but its paying off so far.
6-23-12 fairmont update... the 5.3 is ready
today me and corey did the valvesprings, and zr1 cam, swapped my oil pan, and anything else i am forgetting, also reinstalled the motor, turbo kit, and threw on the corvette alternator bracket and spaced it out and sized a belt. sorry for the noise at some points there was a big fan in the garage making the wind noise, i was unaware!

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.
