Default Lafayette Louisiana Thread

Figured I'd make a thread over here and try to lure some of the guys away from LS2.com

If you're living in Lafayette or close by, come in and post!

My dyno run where we hit the 452, and toasted the clutch in the process

And here's the power difference between a dirty and a clean MAF

Give it time; I'm sure word will get around and we'll grow. If not, the beatings will continue!

Jim, how's the Jeep after the tune?

ya we need to get things going!! The Jeep is awesome man, its pretty cool to have a 10 sec SUV. The AWD is amazing and able to put all the power to the ground from a dead stop. We are going to turn up the boost soon and shoot for 9's.

Thanks. They are treating me pretty good. built the new bottom end, went down pretty significantly in cam size and ported the darts and did a 5angle valve job, everything the same other than that and it picked up 4mph at the track. Still have some fine tuning to do but i think it will pull some [email protected] (previous best was [email protected])

cool and you've had some nice rides dude. I think the 500 whp Civic is particularly cool.

I have always liked imports that put down big power and just just sound like a fart can. I raced a turbo CRX once in my supercharged Viper that put down 565 whp before I turned it up to 765 whp, and at the 565 he hung with me pretty well and surprised the hell out of me. It sounded like a pissed off bee and was pretty bada**.

Got any pics and vids of your rides that you can post up?
