Parting out the v6 motor and trans stuff. I picked up a 6.0 LS motor and trans. Going to the dark side.

Make offers. Willing to part everything out from heads to hot side piping to intake manifold, throttle body, injectors etc...

I'm keeping the megasquirt to run the LS motor on. All else is up for grabs.

Perfect time with the Trump Checks coming out soon.

What kind of hot side piping? name brand kit or one you had made. Feel free to PM a pic or 2 or 4 lol

Just watched your videos on YouTube, jtsstang. Your setup was way more responsive than mine, for sure.

My motor had no balls below 4500rpm. Probably due to the fact that my intake manifold had zero runner length. It was just one large open plenum. Or also due to my torque converter being too tight for a turbo application.

Timing may have been too conservative for e85 as well. Absolutely zero signs of detonation on the pistons even after having ran 40+lbs of boost when it was compound boost. All fuel residue wiped right off the piston tops and combustion chambers.

Stay tuned for a big bang test. No offers on any of the v6 parts so I reassembled the motor and put it back in the way it was. I have every intention of scattering this block with as much boost as my fuel system will support.

I never actually had this car on a dyno. I talked to a local shop and am going to have it strapped down this coming week either Tuesday or Wednesday.

Let's see what this thing can do with all of the boost.

Was forced to reschedule. Today is Friday, dyno is scheduled tomorrow, Saturday, at 12:30pm.

Wastegate pressure is 23psi. It has a manual boost controller so my max boost with this controller should be around 46psi.

Let's put some holes in this block.

Ended the day very early with 535hp 480tq.

We couldn't even get above wastegate boost without running out of fuel supply.

Found out that one of my fuel pumps wasn't even working. I really have no idea how long I've been running off of just one fuel pump.

I only took 2 videos. We only made 3 pulls. I'll splice the clips together and reply to this thread with a YouTube link when I get around to it.

For now, heres the graph of the last pull.
