5.3 LSx Turbo Fairmont 2-3 Pull with High Quality Underhood Sound!!!
Ok, I have been getting some complaints about the sound quality. So, I put the mic under the hood right by the turbo. I think it came about pretty good and certainly captured that turbo at full spool....this is still on 13 psi. I really cannot imagine this car on 20. It is insane.
5.3 LSx Turbo Fairmont...compilation of in-car drag racing from No Problem Raceway....
Here are the "other passes" from the day. You can see various shift points
tried, different lockup points tried, launch techniques, etc. Really, the
deciding factor with this car is 100% getting it out of the hole on Boost. When it comes out on low Boost, it clearly bogs...which kills my 60
foot times. I may have to break down and consider a transbrake for this
car, I just don't know if I can hook it. Anyway, this should be the last
track action for a little while. Forged pistons and ported heads going in
soon. Maybe some other stuff....
5.3 LSx Turbo Fairmont At No Problem Raceway, March 31, 2013
So, here is the second or third pass of the day. Basically, I had a hard
time getting enough Boost built to
adequately launch the car. That, coupled with shift point and lockup woes
kept me away from my goal again today. However, it was a great day to race
and the car still ran well, despite having a cracked ring land on #5. Will
be pulling the motor soon for piston replacement and it will also get

Turbo 5.3 LSX Fairmont, Greg's First Ride in the Ultimate Sleeper
This is Greg, my 15 year old son's, first ride in the Fairmont. He is the
one that found the car on YouTube and told me about it and that Matt
(Denmah) wanted to sell it. Too bad it was dark, because you can't see his
face. We will make another video this weekend in the light. Anyway,
enjoy...there are several hard pulls here with absolutely no traction...and
me cackling like an idiot. I love this car!!!
