Well pump in a date and see how it compares to your Weather Dominator machine doohickey.

We will have to circle back to this.

Meanwhile I'll continue to mistrust institutions.

This new thing called Fall air?
That helped, but I figured out the shocks yesterday ( a big thanks to wingnutks for that), but I figured out how to make full boost midway through 1st gear. The best I’ve done previously was a 1/2 second into 2nd. I’ll try to get a video posted - I was able to wrinkle the tires to the 60’

Tomorrow is ‘All The Boost’ Friday, which means I’m close to the trailer haha.

The key to full boost in the top of first is nitrous. For all you sloppy hot siders out there.

I've helped people go faster in the past and had it bite me in the @$s too.

Ran out of fuel enough to have it break up twice on the 1st run. Fuel pressure dropped to high 50’s and just tickled my fuel pressure safety which dropped a couple degrees of timing. For the second run I added a couple degrees of timing coming off the trans brake and took out. 1.5 psi of boost.

Hard to believe, but I went faster with less boost. I’m guessing because of the couple of split seconds of misfires on the first run. The fuel pressure dipped twice in the second run, but only 2-3 psi rather than darn near 20.

So, in a nutshell, I’ve found the limit of my twin AEM400’s - I need more fuel pump. At this moment I’m not sure how I’m going to accomplish that.

@wingnutz still has me by a couple of hundo’s though - I tried.

Check voltage before you blame pumps. I will update the thread. Nice work!
