It's all fun and games till someone goes click-clack.

Yesterday I finally got around to installing my 3.0" pulley on my assassin. A step up from the 3.5" pulley. I was hoping to go from 7psi to about 10psi, well i'm seeing 11psi on my gauge. I finally feel like I got a fast car. It was fast before, but you just don't know....damn. It is so powerful that it doesn't matter what rpm I am at in 2nd, if I give it full throttle the tires will just break loose.

I raced my friends gt35r STi the other week with all the goodies, I sprayed a 50 shot on the 7lbs of boost I was making and stayed neck and neck with him. Now, forget about it, I don't need the nitrous. This car is just INSANE! The shift from second to third, and third to fourth is amazeing. It just slams you in the seat and pulls you through the entire powerband. When I drop it to 4th gear on the highway at 75mph, HOLD THE FU*K ON! I can't say enough about the car right now.

I am going to be going to the 1/8 this friday to tune the car a bit since the a/f is in the low 10's! I can't imagine what it will be like to tune it to a nice 12.2-12.5 and mount my slicks on it.

It's finally time to get a custom plate, something that says IEATV8. Bring on those LS2's and that LS7 better watch out if I flip the switch! I'm not saying it is the fastest car on the road, but is certainly isn't the slowest!

HUGE PROPS TO TC!!

*stay tuned for more boost*

I have been doing business with NGM for over 3 years now and have had most of their products. This is my second S/C set-up and I haven't had a problem with either one. My first was an NGM stage 2 alpine, which now belongs to another friend on the boards. Before that I had the first NGM stage IV IM. All the products from Camp NGM are top notch, and I don't excpect to have any problems with any of them.

I bet that thing is crazy, lol.

Isn't a a/f ratio in the 12's a little lean? I have mine at 11.75:1 or so at 8psi with my alpine. I don't have a built block but would that even help?

the point of keeping it at high 11's is to be safer with the stock block. u still want a 12.2-12.5 tune in there for best numbers.

I love threads like this.....it makes it just a little easier for me to get my *** up in the morning at 5:30am to be at work at 7am, just so I can work in the cold this winter, outdoors, 10 hours a day or so, to fund my upcoming Sniper kit.......

I was thinking of tuning mine tomorrow to around 11.9:1 before the track this saturday but was afraid, lol. I didn't want to push it but I wanted that little bit more power, lol.

Anyway, zeenon53 if I make it down your way I want a ride!!

I am not recomending this, but my old stage 2 was at 14.1:1 at redline. That was at 10 psi on the stock block for over a year.

EDIT:

The meet is in Richmond. http://www.newtiburon.com/forums/showthread.php?t=84990
