The Build Starts Today
Munch. Eat your heart out. I am leaving work today at 930 to start tearing the car down. I need to Thread lock the cam bolts and Pin the crank. My Procharger is going on this weekend. I will get everything prepped today and go by the barn and get my bracket and headunit tomorrow. Should be done Saturday afternoon. I will get a bunch of pictures to post during the build.

Very cool and about time! :cheers:

Are you doing any of the work at the barn? If so I'll come up and make sure everything goes smootly.

I am doing it at Caseys. Its almost done. I need to re connect the radiator and run the boost a pump wires and it will be done. I fired it off yesterday. I will call Virginia speed today to schedule the tune.

So the car is back together minus the hood. Had to replace one of the plastic pullies with a steel one. Goes to Virginia speed tomorrow and on the dyno friday. Numbers and pics to come this weekend.

03SlowZ06 02-12-2011 07:04am

The car has made it home. The dyno numbers are in. I was hoping for 530. I was alittle off. It made 550 hp and 471 tq on 6lbs of boost. I am very happy. I will post the video and dyno sheet along with the pictures of putting everything together as soon as I can get a darn day off work.

Oh on a side note. Traction control plus WOT on a 550 hp car equals reduced engine power and traction control codes for every wheel and sensor. Bad. LOL. I am going to have to remember that.

Y2Kvert4me 02-12-2011 07:17am

You should not be getting Reduced Engine Power (at any hp level), and I'm also not understanding what TC has to do with it? :confused5:

Tuning a boosted car to not trigger REP mode can be tricky, but Ed knows the tricks. I would definitely talk to him about that.

Congrats on finishing the project though, sure it feels like a whole new animal now. :D


03SlowZ06 02-12-2011 07:52am

It was kicking p0105 and something else. If the TC system is off its fine. If its on and trys to cut the throttle that is when the codes pop. I need to feel the back of the intake and check on the MAP sensor to make sure it is tight.

Y2Kvert4me 02-12-2011 08:09am

That's even more interesting, as P0105 isn't a valid code for a C5.


03SlowZ06 02-12-2011 08:18am

I will check again in alittle bit but I am pretty sure it is 105. Its got a 2.5 bar map sensor also.

Munch 02-12-2011 08:18am

Nice numbers, that should keep ya out of trouble. :thumbs:

03SlowZ06 02-12-2011 08:19am

You know me better then that.

wwomanC6 02-12-2011 11:38am

:hurray: So how does she sound now?

03SlowZ06 02-12-2011 11:43am

I can not tell from up front. But from what I hear it sounds good.

Garb55 02-12-2011 06:18pm

Congarts! I know you been waiting a long time to get her done.

03SlowZ06 02-14-2011 07:49am

Thanks. I have been waiting a very long time.

Munch 02-14-2011 10:49am

Awww, I thought today would be pic and video day.
