Thanks for that Paul I will let you know when I get my Flowmmaster fitted.
Not a bad days racing everything did not go quite to plan. I couldn't get the Nitrous to work although on the way to the track I ran the Nitrous with a 75 shot and the Gtech for a 1/4 mile and got 12.69 at 115mph.
Now I know Gtech times are not that popular on here but I ran the Gtech on 2 of my drag strip runs and it proved to be within .2 of a second on E/T(it reads a little fast) and it seems to read a little high on the mph about +5mph.
So had the Nitrous solonoid fired properly I would have run a 12.
But I am happy with 3 solid 13.37,13.37 and 13.36 at 102mph which is what you would expect my A4 2.73 geared LS1 to run with the TCI3000 stall fitted.
And I raced a highly modified LT1 94 Trans Am that has a surpercharger and a number of other mods and I beat him 13.37 to 13.45 but I did hole shot him aswell .261 to his .4 reaction time.
I tested the Nitrous system in the pits and found the Nitrous solonoid is either blocked or faulty. I am not running a Nitrous filter so I either need a new Nitrous solonoid and or a filter.
It's always the same I have test fired the Nitous about 5 times on the street since I fitted it but it had to play up at the track! :bang:
Never mind a good days racing anyway!

Yes he was a local guy i had a quick chat with him as he was talking to a mate when i walked up to em & hesaid he had the supercharger fitted but had problems with his nitros sounded like same problem as you.
We had a great day but i want a jet engine to put in my pickup.lol

Yes Paul I know him, his name is Duncan and his car appeared in the ACW magazine a couple of years ago when they also covered modding LT1 and LS1's with Chris Jenkins 93 Z28 and Ray Comer's 99 Z28 Camaro's
I always talk to any of the guys running LT1's or LS1's He was not to pleased when I beat him mostly with a hole shot 13.37 to his 13.45 but .261 to his .4 reaction time. He said lets go again cause he bogged down, but I think that was the best time I saw him run. He has had 12.9 with his Nitrous running.
When we got to the front he was called froward and had to race Richard Ross who I have also got to know through drag racing and Richard has a ZR1 Vett and ran his best run to date of 11.78 against Duncan's 14.0
I found my Nirous problem to be either a blocked or faulty Nitrous solonoid. So I will have to wait for 12's for a while longer!
05-14-2006, 05:26 PM
yes Andy the ZR1 is a fast motor & he has had some mods done to it
Give it time & you will sort it

Hey I made UK1320 web site.I reckon the person in your photo Paul is the one that took this shot. How spooky is that!
05-17-2006, 02:58 PM
Hey Paul do you know anyone in the UK who could Dyno Tune my car after I get the headers installed?
05-17-2006, 03:15 PM
Hi Andy, i have asked a mate where he got his cosworth done & will let you know when he replies
05-17-2006, 03:23 PM
Well that was a quick reply from my mate,
he said the company name is INTERPRO at Filton in Bristol if thats any help
05-17-2006, 03:28 PM
Have they got the software to LS1's
I saw somewhere on here that somone near Silverstone knows a lot about LS1's?
05-17-2006, 04:25 PM

Hey Paul I looked on the ukstreet racers web site for the results from ACW SRS2 meet and Duncan's timein the Trans Am of 13.45 was his best of the weekend when I beat him!
And he claimed he bogged! all his other runs were 14,s
I had to do I did a Kill story on here :devil: and the guys cant believe a Vortech surcharged car can be so slow!
He has a 12.9 in SRS1 but that was with the 50shot nitrous!
I saw him race a lot last year and 13.4 was about his best then too!
05-18-2006, 12:53 PM
Think im in with a chance with mine then Andy.lol
Give you all a run for your money.

My friend's 95TA A4 went from 13.1 to 12.6 with a converter swap... And turned up it went 11.6@121.
If you change converters you probably will have to adjust your shift points, car might be shifting a bit low. You should be able to hit 12's with a converter, good shift points, airbox.
I drove a 2000 Formy with cutout, airbox, FTRA, to a 12.85@110mph in great air once. I drove a similarly setup up 2000 TA to a 13.03.
05-18-2006, 02:39 PM
Definatley not shifting low I'm 6.000rpm 1-2 and 2-3 just above I may be hitting the rev limiter. I'm getting a sort of doulbe change just before the finish line. I've lowered my 2-3 change by 2mph to see if it helps.
I only have a HPP3 to do this. Havn't had a chance to try it yet.
Hey paul I'm back at Shakey 11th June with a couple of others bringing cars also why don't you join us on the track. There will be some Jap crap to shut down or get shutdown by!

HP Tuners is pretty good too. For ideas from a bolt=on guy who went 12.0 with 2.73's, I would PM OctaneZ28 (Tim).
I used to travel to London and the Midlands back in the 90's, I was playing in bands and my ex-wife was from North London.
05-20-2006, 04:59 AM
Thanks John, I hope to be getting my LT's fitted next weekend then it's back to the track in June. Then I have to make a decision wether I bother to fit the 3.73's or not!
I may need some DR's next and then I need a tune!

I did the headers install today at my buddies workshop using a proper 2 post ramp and an air racket. It went very well and I can't believe how much easier the job was with the proper facilities. The install guide I down loaded said 5-12 hours using car ramps and axle stands at home.
We di it in 3 1/2 hours and test drive aftre wards perfect, no exhaust leaks or Y pipe touching under the car also no ground cleareence issues.
Funny thing my car sounds exactly the same as it did before. I have a quietnes pack on the exahust with a single outlet. I could feel the car feels more responsive in the mid range. I have a twin outlet exhaust to fit yet.
I now need to get back to the track to see how this beast performs!
