No Mans Land..

Well I`m playing with pressure now.... At 18# My wide band says I`m OK... But it pulls like a friggin demon. I`m a bit leary to put out more boost but there is that BIG OL GREEN WEENIE that says go go go.. Last night I pulled on a Z06 and at blank35 we let off. I got the TWO good thumbs up. He was impressed but I was as well. Tom big cuddos cuz damn I have a fast little toy.

I find it very hard to believe you pulled on a Z06.

Its not the wideband you need to worry about, the wideband can read fine and you still can get detonation.

Do you have a J&S Ultrasafegaurd?


Also I can believe it... pulling on a 400hp Vette isn't un-doable

03 I was just summing it up. I can run with the lap top in the pass. seat then check after I wind it up. Pulled over on the side of the road that is. No I don`t think I would have won an all out. But I did not give up an inch till we let off.

I beleive it i can blister a 06 , There heavy and the 06 is giving up about 800 to 1000lbs over the SVT so 300HP VS 400HP with hauling another 800+pounds seems realistic to me
