525 at the crank is about 450 RWHP, and it says "more than adequate", which explains why I can hit 475 RWHP safely.

It is all interesting, and I'm still not sure why BAPs are needed sometimes (if they really are needed at all).

Tom I bet your fuel pump duty cycle is just about maxed out. The BAP is cheap insurance.

Obviously too late, but I thought if the car were to run lean, it would result in detonation and if sustained, can burn holes in pistons... not explode the rods and such.

Could be that things were ready to 'go' from all the rev limiter bounces and flogging I've done to it? Then, once a little boost was introduced, that was the straw that broke it?

This whole thing is full of question marks.

In the coming days, I'll be checking on prices for FRPP crate engines, rebuilds, Livernois short rolling block ($$$), etc.

It all boils down to money for me; economical (aka. cast) or forged. This is what I have to decide on first, then explore my options.
Bill who tuned your car? Your tune/lack of fuel killed your motor.

Why ?? Is there something that they don't do that the other Mfgs do ??

I'm not a proponent just curious. I hadn't heard of them before and after Bill mentioned them look at their site and it seemed like they knew what they were doing.



BAP business ?? Well conventional wisdom would state that you can't get what Tom is getting out of the stock pump. I have no freaking idea, so I stay out of that altogether.

Same here Jon can't wait to see the pics and numbers. If it was dyno'd today is there an indication on how much power you are making ?

He also said he has a GT500 fuel pump that came in with another kit of his and wont need it. He said he might be able to cut me a real good deal on it since he'll have no use for it. So I may also come ahead with a nice fuel pump sometime in the future. We'll see how that goes.
Great news can't wait to see your # and pict's maybe even a vid?

Those are some really nice pictures Jed. Ashley & I almost made it out with Ian but I had an Anthropology Lab course to make this evening. Looks like you all made the most of a great day.

Yes indeed the year of the supercharger. And of even more mods then I did last year!

No indication of any numbers. I think he just wants to show me in person, which is fine with me.

I'll try and do both. I think I have a digital camara somewhere which I can upload some shots and vids.

Ray, my condolances

25% per the Predator is what Scott showed me, and not a indication of going lean at WOT on the dyno chart.

Not against them... just don't see why one is necessary for me. Plus, I'm down to 8 psi now, so the demand is even less.

Ray it looks like it was a lovely service. What a great thing to honor your wife the way you did. It speaks to great lengths what a good man you are Ray.

It also speaks volumes as to what great friends and supporters you have Ray. Its extremely nice for Bill, Brian George, Jed and Luis to attend and support you in your time of celebration of life for Marianne. Also know you had friends and supporters throughout this country with you in thoughts and prayers during your service, I know I was there with you!

Thanks Jed for the glimpse to the past with the wedding pictures. You and Ray were studs, look at that black hair. Looks like times has been good to both of you.

I like it. Fits your Mach 1 theme.
18x9 should allow you to run 275's.

the slings and arrows of the outrageous mod bug



I have always thought though rims were very good looking, especially for the Mach theme!

Ray- Sorry I couldn't make it down. Looks like you had plenty of support their though. The pic of Jed and you on your wedding day was hillarious.

Jed-Awesome pics.

Tom-JMO but I like the look of these better. Only negative is that they only have them in 17x9's unless you go with the 99-04 wheels. I think you'll need a spacer though.

+1 on the american muscle version. The oval at the top is too small, IMO, on the one you posted. I think the it'll look Great !!!!

Another wheel that is close, but unique, is the "HotWheels" SixtyEight wheel



and I know I've seen the inner portion painted before, just don't know where at the moment.
