    Well I do have an aftermarket regulator after the stock rail on the return side. And the map is from a cobalt if you look over on ls1tech there's so much information about these setups look in the forced induction section

    One thing to note - if you are going to use the Cobalt MAP sensor (like he did here), you have to have a 2 Bar custom operating system tune in the car before starting it with the new sensor. Otherwise, your fueling will be all jacked up...

    just heard from a friend on mine who was at the car show in hesperia last night where this camaro was at . after leaving the car show and from a 30mph roll he totally destroyed the rear tires in a very large cloud of tire smoke ,this is very impressive for what has been done to the motor .also you can't tell what's under the hood of the camaro except for a very small bump/blister on the hood

    Just a little update I ran the car for the first time with the new setup working the bugs out on a 100+ day on low boost (9) lbs car went 10.76 @128 with only a lazy 1.61 60ft car need mor timing down low to get that 60 down with full boost 15 lbs and a few tweaks to the tune 9's shouldn't be a problem with a stock motor + boost that's not to shabby

    Be carefull. My one buddy who has a 3rd gen Camaro had pretty much the same setup as you have only with a stock 5.3 on 93 pump gas and after a few races it took out some ring lands. That setup you have is pretty sweet but I would put some forged slugs in it before it's too late.

    Hope you get into the 9's, I missed mine by a wisker last time out.

    Thats what normally fails on a setup like this I kept the tune real soft Only 14• of timing in it and when racing 100 octane. It just need to last till tax time for forged rods and pistons lol

    Awesome! She's got alot left in her.

    My take on making a FI motor live is good spark and fuel control. Need to really have that tune right. Even a motor with the BEST parts wont live if the tune if off. A $$$ all-forged motor will live .5 sec longer that a junkyard motor is something is amiss in the tune. This is why I use the new Holley EFI - the WOT closed-loop is a bog deal in my book.

    Congrats on a great build and keep up on the updates for us :cool:

    Just got back from Santa Maria & Lompoc and saw nothing/heard nothing about either place building a track. Can I get some more info on this?
