    I went out to tune the car this past weekend. We ended up finding that crank sensor was not the proper sensor for the trigger he went with. The signal widened out an broke up as we revved it higher and higher. As we troubleshot, looking like a wiring issue initially, we ended up lifting a head and pushing coolant. I noticed it as soon as I happened, so we loaded the car into the trailer, took it back home, and took out the motor.

    The motor looked good otherwise. We inspected the rods, rod bearings, pistons, etc. He will put it back together in the next day and he's already ordered the crank sensor he needs.

    That said, with the car breaking up top, it made 500whp on wastegate spring pressure (10-11 PSI). :) I should be back out one weekend next month to get it on the dyno again.

    Yeah, shit happens. I was ready to turn up the boost otherwise. With the correct sensor, I think it will probably do more like 520-540whp on spring pressure. My plan is 700whp... Once we see that dyno, I'll look at the torque curve and Zach will decide if he wants more on the dyno. Likely, he'll stay with 700whp, but I'll write another tune for more boost that he can use at the track. If it doesn't blow up at the track, he'll dyno it and we'll do another tune for the track... Rinse and repeat... as long as the motor holds.

    Still the OEM original block in this SHO, or was a new one dropped in at some point? This build has happened over so long I can't recall LOL.

    I could not tell you. I just know it's a stock block.

    Motor is already back together. just waiting on the digital MOTEC crank sensor and a few gaskets. My guess is i will be street driving the car next week. Then Jason will be flying back out so we can turn it up. I will more than likely be stopping at 700whp. But will not hesitate to turn it up at the track further. The goal is to go 9's in the 1/4 with the stock rod motor

    Clutch would not hold past this... It's going to go up from here.

    We did 14 PSI ramping up to 25 PSI, basically like a Vortech to keep the torque flat. Maybe it will have a chance at some of those awesomely tuned NA SHO's I've heard about? :p

    Before the clutch started slipping, we were around 560 wtq.

    27 PSI at the track and we found loads we couldn't on the dyno. Lets just say the next event will be fast... Basically, the big, heavy wheel turbo keeps boost up between shifts, so I have adjusted (today) WGDC to try and keep it a flat 25-27 PSI. So the boost was following my map after the shift where boost was kept up. You can see this in this log and the potential of more speed. This log is from the posted time slip:

    Now let's see some little Zach's being conceived and birthed inside the Blue Turd!

    To carry on the SHO traditions into an entirely new generation that is!

    Congrats to all! :thumb:
