Default 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!

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

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.

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?

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.

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.

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

P0106?
