Did you mean "hey redneck"? 😂🤣😂
No, I meant heah. PeeWee Herman says 'hey' and Charlie Daniels say 'heah' - you probably can visualize the difference.


I have more in injectors and pumps than I have in motor, cam, springs, head bolts and lifters lol.

I can definitely visualize the difference. Just never seen it spelled that way, though I'm sure I say it more like Charlie Daniels than Pee Wee Herman.

Someone who speaks like Charlie Daniels, calling someone else a Redneck is laying it on a bit thick though.

Proud to be considered in the same category. Not too thick, just pointing out what my wife reminds me of weekly.

Finally have gotten my sh*t together....somewhat. I have the kegulator system working for building boost and I have gotten the belts installed. Hopefully enough from getting tossed for a 10 second/140+mph run.

Big thanks to 565bbc for the seat mod idea that helped me get the seat lowered and moved back. Now I can keep my helmet from touching the halo and I'm sitting at the correct angle (IMO). It's comfortable to drive as well.

Edit : I just noticed that the pics don't do the relocation any justice. The seat is 3" farther back and 2" down from where it was originally. And I'm sitting almost straight up and down (no lean back). I know alot of people like that lean back feeling, but I can't take it for more than 10 minutes, maybe too much truck driving or whatever. No matter, I'm not one of the Boyz N the Hood - I'm more of an old man in the woods.

You running at Yellow Bullet?
No, definitely not.

I still need to get this dialed in. I need 4-5 passes to get my tune straight.

Once I can get that close enough to let the Holley keep track of it, then I'm looking to see where this turbo gives up. I expect my converter to give up the ghost before then as well. I'm guessing (note-guessing) that I'm not going to see much of any gain past 25psi. I have not seen an S475 be productive much beyond 25 psi on a 4.8/5.3 combo yet.


On a positive note, I was given, by my employer whom is great guy, a 6K mile 6.0 that had an oil pump pressure relief spring break. And yes 6k mile 6.0 rec port.

The thread title needs to change to 'chasing a top end 8' if that's the case ;)
