It will definately have to be dyno tuned for the 60# injectors and all the other mods... I am going to run a base tune on it until its broken in.... Then its off to the dyno for some numbers.

I hear that from my girlfriend from time to time

That engine, however, is gorgeous! Can't wait to see the final results!

VERY NICE......
Take your time with the wiring and hoses... Nothing is more annoying when starting a new engine than to have problems with vacuum or water leaks or one of the accessories....

OR 4x4

60# injectors? Them is some big injectors. I ran 42# with a blower and bottle. Are you going to shorten the pulse width on them?

Yes D, I will definately work on the pw with these!!! I purchased the 60#ers so I didnt have to worry about not having "enough" fuel. Its gonna take some time to get it dialed in. What MAF are you runnin? I am running the 90mm right now, but I'm thinking of switching to the SCT "Big Air"...

Ohh.. ( smiles ) a Certian Pro-M. My Headunit was wasted almost a year ago ( jan 25th is the anniversary ) and I never bothered to put everything back together. I WAS running a 90mm. I now Have Leo's Old Pro-M thats recalibrated for 42# injectors and a Tec3 ecm/distro setup.

You should consider running a Tec3 setup just for the tunability it offers. Its the most flexable system out there ( has been for years ).

Well the only thing is, I am devoted to the SCT thing, because of my local tuner.... His link is on my site. I am not familiar with the Tec3????

I have run slicks before, the best 1/4 mile time in the past was a 14.09... I cant remember the mph though. I havent been to the track in a year and a half!!!
