Whewww......this sucker is stout!

Well, I took the S-10 for a spin just a little bit ago to do a little shake down and see how the new parts like eachother. I tweaked the VE table a little bit since I knew VE would go up with the new heads. AFR looks good everywhere up to a few psi boost and just needs a little massaging.

I must say that I am a little scared of the throttle after the couple of short spins I took. This thing has got a bunch of power for a little truck. I basically never hit boost and it is just making a butt load of torque. I almost went in the other lane when the nose laid down after getting out of the throttle. I did make one little run where the engine started to see boost. At that point the tires broke loose, at about 70mph mind you, and I had to come home and clean my shorts

I am about to go out for a final ride for the day and do a little more datalogging and flogging. I'll be back.

Chris

Well, the diapers are not a bad idea. I took it out again and got on a good smooth stretch of road and things were much better. I ran it up again, but I dont know exactly what was going on because I did not get the datalog saved...which sucks. I did push it a little harder this time. It sung up to 56-5800 like it was nothing and hooked pretty good once I got in 2nd gear. I pushed harder and 3rd. With every touch of the throttle it just roared louder and pulled the nose higher. It is freaking wild!!!! I have riden in a couple of 10 second cars, and this thing is ALL THERE!

And I still have not touched the fuel tables except to fattent them a little since the engine change. AFR and EGT are staying in check as far as I can tell.

My little brother is wanting to turbo his Mustang,of course he is wanting to go with a little something more than the 5.0 in it,I have been wanting to tinker with them myself,if he goes that route I will be hammering you with questions man. I dig your set up just because you do not see a lot of SBC with turbos. You know they are there just do not see them often. I think you have to have one of the cooler rods on this board.

Your going to have your work cut out for you in the traction dept.

We were at the track Sat. T&Ti'ng the Malibu for bracket season and a guy had a tube chassie late model 'Stang that was TOTALLY WICKED!!!!

He left the tree and about 100' the turbo's kicked his ***** sideway's on the first 3 pass's. On the 4th pass,Tire's squawling,he ended up turned the oposite direction in the other lane.

HE needed the diaper's for SURE. He loaded it up after that one.

Turbo's are very cool power adders and have unlimited potential.Besides, you don't have to have a "bottle warmer" handy either.

Sounds WICKED, Kevin. Engineer in a throttle kicker that will automaticaly kick back when the boost kicks in so you can keep under control...... No such thing as too much power until you surpass the managable point!! Sounds like you are there. Adding the turbos to a big inch, stout motor is like puting an after burner on a very high thrust jet!!!

RCastle, I am always up for talking turbos. Just post away or PM me any time. They are fun, but you need to know a few things before taking one head on.

Skyman, click my avatar for a bunch of pics.

I do have a digital video camera and I will get some video when I get a chance. I have to get my brother to go with me and find a stretch of road that I can play on that is also close to home.

As for traction, I think it will hook at the track fine. The second time I went out today it was on good pavement instead of the old slick crap. It hooked good in high gear when I gave her hell. I will probably be taking it easy on the launch for the first few times until I figure it out and get the 4 link set. I also have to take it easy until I figure out if wheelie bars are needed. I am going to go to a test and tune night a couple of times before bracket racing.

Later,

Chris

I can keep boost low with a wastegate spring pretty easily. I could remove the spring and block the valve open for tuning, but it is so close right now it is really not needed. I think that it is going to be managable on good pavement and at the track. The extra smooth older highway type roads are going to be a no-no since I think it could spin out at any speed.

The afterburner is a good comparison. I think this engine would make 500HP without the turbo.
