I don't get it either... they want more of your money??

I can drive 60 miles round trip to work and never even pressurize the engine! But that chart was definitely showing the hammer dropped:

We verified A/F ratio on the Predator and it was always around 11.7:1 on the street at WOT.

Maybe the factory felt sorry for all those 'Quality Check' delays that they installed a set of GT500 pumps without you knowing.

Cool video too!

Hmmm... kinda doubt it!

Did you hear the Blow Off Valve when he gets off the gas? Kinda hard to hear over the exhaust and fans.

Sounds totally different in person...

No, can't tell in the video clip. Even mine should make some kind of 'blow off' sound, but neither of us rev'd it past 4500 rpm's or so.

Once all is good with mine, I'll be sure to take alot more videos, both static and in motion.

I'll maybe host an install/'last minute cleaning before the show' party next Saturday. Hopefully will be able to get the D-Specs and Eibach Pros in that day.
Rumor has it that Jed may grill up some carne asada tacos and also bring a Heineken mini-keg!

Ray: As soon as I get the Ultralites off, we can plan on your installs. I already have the Steeda UDP's ready to go for you.

George: Congrats on the GMS CAI sale!

Jon: How's the status of your Vortech install?
I'm up for install this Wednesday. And expected finish day is friday/saturday. I hope it all goes smooth.

Bill I'm pulling for you man. I really do hope that you get the whole situation figured out.

Jon Well you're on the list, that is great news. A couple of weeks from now the wait will seem like it was nothing..... which doesn't help you today.

George Congrats on the sale !! Hey, Stillen paid you to attend their event... seems like it worked out.

Yeah I cannot wait till its all done and ower. And to be honest it worked out best waiting this long. I was able to make a few payments on the CC to be able to afford guages at time of install which I wasn't planning on till late may or june. So its all good. I'm just anxious to see all the new toys put on.

I also sealed the deal on that new spoiler delete trunk with the shaved keyhole. I'm so stoked about that. That was just a random PM. The guy was real nice, took tons of pictures to show its perfect quality. Hopefully that gets shipped Mon/Tues and gets in late this week or next. All thats left for now is d-specs, lca's and relocation. And then I'll enjoy the car and take a break... Yeah...

I wont be able too. I used to work like 5mins from the shop which woulda been easy to drop by. But with my new promotion I got moved to another store and now the shops now about 1hr away(due to traffic). I wont even be dropping the car off myself. Parents are going too since I wont make it on time to work if I do. I wont see my car for the entire process

My new trunk below . Well its on its way from MD.

Gauges too? Nice!
Which ones did you end up going with?

Sealing the deal on any shaved keyhole is always a good thing.

Thanks Brian. Once the new oil fitting goes in and gauges in, I'll probably take her home and install the BAP myself later on. I'm really hoping before Wednesday so I can bring her to the Cafe.

Yeah I went with Autometer GS guages. A/F and full electric boost/vac guages. The GS series matches the stock guages perfectly.

Day

Night, perfect green backlit and red/orange needle. (ignore the fact that its nitrous)


I think these guages are new to this year. I love the stock look they have.

Check out Jegs for the GS series. I didn't have the IUP so I'm not able to change the dash lights like the some of you and I wanted it to match. I'm picky, glad they had the GS style.

When the time comes, I was thinking of selling my Bullitts and tires for around 6 bills. From what I've seen lately, the factory Bullitts don't pull in the money like they used to.
As for the pulleys, give them a wash and spiff them up a bit, then re-post new pics. A little visual goes a long way.. JMHO. Price for the UDP's seem on par with the market.

I bet Jonco's install is completed before Bill's.......


OK seriously though, good luck to both of you.

Trooper, that is really odd that your car does not appear to be lacking fuel. You didn't install a 2nd piggy-back stock pump or nothing? Just injectors? Weird......
