Vote for a suspension forum, especially if it covers the basics of how to set up a car for traction.
Thanks,
Bear

well he sold the capri and we are building a Buick GN with Ls power 6 liter and a S475.

Mainly a street car but you know how chris is , itll be running low 8's I am sure in the near future. Hes working with the coil on plug stuff and it seems most guys switch to distributors on them so It should be interesting.

Anyway this should be a Killer forum now!
I remember Chris! He is a good dude, I would guess the same with Chris LOL... He won't do it halffast. Tell him I said hello.

TIN, not in this thread, but perhaps in the Aftermarket news and products you could give a synopsis of whats going on with you and Tribal ?????.

I searched for it over on PY but found nothing. Those of us out here who might have or still could buy from him would need to know as much as possible. If you are willing to share.

Here is my NOS problem. I started running E85 this past year. Love the fuel but can't get good info on what size fuel jets to use. Nitruos Works have no idea (or clue). I am running a simple plate system with changable jets. 200 hp max.

if you come to west coast hot rod stuff , robin, e-85 is legal "pump" fuel..

e-85 burns silly clean, and requires a different , more alky based, knowledge of reading plugs..but the difference in power is instantly obvious, especially in the short times..peak power isnt much, but your torque band is better..for a car running at peak rpm, it helps..but for a car running a wider power band, and tight converter,(aka a 4000 lb , 5500 rpm olds 455..or a good street pontiac) it does wonders..

(because i'm a sneaky fella, i like to add a small dose of nitromethane..wow..the wonders of chemistry for match racing)..

I dont know much about NOS but wanna learn more. I do know I like E85 and would be running it in my turbo car if I could buy it here in CT.

However, Job spetter who is one hell of a tuning Guru for efi systems Wont tune a car on E85 period. Why I dont know, He just told me Look up what is IN IT! THat was his only answer to me. I think he meant what is blended with the ethanola dn the gasoline for additives.

He also wont tune a car running methanol injection.



robin I will tell Chris you said hello. I will be seeing him again soon to help him tune his ride. I drive and he tunes!

Hes freaking crazy I am running 120 MPH and he doesnt look up from the screen Just keeps saying Keep you god damn foot in it!!!!!!!!!!!!

Hes insane, but a great tuner and getting better everyday.


Now If I could get him to finish tuning my car Id be OK.LOL

Freinds, cant live with them, cant get them to tune your car for free.

What size nitrous jet and gas jet were you running? What bottle / nitrous pressure do you run and what fuel pressure are you running?

Thanks for the help

Put a pressure guage somewhere on the nitrous bottle. It needs to be 900-950. The bigger the system the more critical keeping consistent run to run pressure becomes to a safe running engine. I have expensive components to manage 925-950 that both heat and cool the bottles accordingly.

Small stuff (250 and under) you just need to know you have pressure. Performance will vary slightly with pressure but failures won't with at that level.

X2! I'm trying out my plate this weekend.I've read to go up 6-8 fuel jets,or 30% more diameter and pull 1/2 degree additional timing per 100hp on E85 vs gas.This info is from Heath on raceone85.com.

Is there a downside to jetting it for a 200 shot and setting the contoller to 50% and working my way up using the progressive instead of changing jets?


A friend that has been running n2o for years is helping me flow the system,but he doesn't have any e85 experience.I have my N/A tune pretty well dialed in and read the plugs regularly(different than gas),hopefully al will go well.
