well i know where one is since i own one now haha. had it for a while,just never got around to getting it going. it is at my friends house in hilham now in ground. don't have the wideband working yet but it is atleast working. been messing with changing the pumpkin over to e85 and see if it picked up any power but is dropping pressure and going lean so gotta get me a bigger pump and possibly injectors.

I had heard someone local had got a dyno but I figured it was just rumor. THATS AWESOME congrats man inground dyno is fantastic, you guys planning on doing a shop or just for helping some people out. let me know when you get the wideband setup and Ill bring the goat by and we can do some playing! Been hearing a lot of folks switching to e85 lately, you were running 42lb injectors when we got tuned for spray werent you?

yep,42 lbers and a 255 pump. havent checked idc but they will prolly be maxxed. debating on doing a single 450 or going ahead and use a 450 and put in a t and keep the 255 in there as well and have the wires ran out of tank in case i ever turbo/super charge it it would already be ready. there is actually 3 locally now. a guy in rickman has a portable one and another guy has a mustang dyno between algood/rickman up on the hill = mikes auto body .

if your not using the factory fuel rail and have an external regulator id go ahead and do the 450 and be done with it honestly. only reason Id do a t is if you were going double 255's and had a way to only activate one at a time. Dont you have the access panel on your trunk deck anyway?

Didnt realize there were any in our area, the question though is how many decent tuners are their... after previous experience im thinking few and far between since these days anyone that owns hp tuners calls themself a tuner. though I have met a guy that works at the advance in cookeville, says he tunes all these turbo'ed 5.3's running around Cookeville. Would definitely be nice to make a 15 minute drive to get a dyno session haha

Got back under it saturday night to work on driver side hub assembly ( from the ridetech install where she stripped a stud) and one of my brake caliper bolts on that same side fell out from the last time I drove it. So I went to fastenol and picked up some bolts all 4 since everything has to match cause im crazy......

my shorter end links came in so that will be my next project, and a new exhuast hanger once it arrives to finish off leveling my exhaust tips...apparently the v6 has a hook hanger as the main instead of the little square guy. who knew? Then it will be making a bulk connector for my gauge cluster. I plan at some point to do a something more 3 dimensional and I would like to use the gauges I have. this would bring them closer to the clear cover or maybe replace it entirely ...still unsure on that one. Though I have thought about doing a 3 gauge setup like below, that might suit the rest of the car a bit better but I do still love my oldschool gauges for some reason.

Very awesome build. Ill be moving to Cookeville later this year actually. My wife took a job offer at Tennessee Tech. You might have to fill me in on what car shows/events are good to go to in the area.

Thanks guys,

Imprtkillr-

congrats cookeville is a nice place, small town but nice. There isnt much that goes on here aside from the regular autozone shows. Nashville gets some bigger stuff though goodguys at LP field. Theres not much of a car scene here but there are a few of us that still piddle haha. Let me know when you are moving in, one thing cookeville does have in spades is non chain restaurants with awesome food and some good bars if thats your thing.
