Go to a proper dyno. Sav's car was tuned in a rush without detcans. Go figure.

That, and 3% down on one injector, AFR to high for my taste. That car did not have a proven mature tune with the most recent setup IMHO. Yours sorta is. Stop worrying.

Those sparkles aren't pixie dust.
Your engine is dying a little every time you push it hard.
You should be very concerned.
It is detonating and you don't hear it over the sound of your exhaust.

When are you going to spray water and clean out your combustion chambers? You can probably see the piston faces then.

WTF am I not seeing?

Hustler how much would it cost you to take a better borescope to look at the weak spot in the Supertech pistons?

Was Sav running 100 octane when it went boom?

Yeah, I was. Doesn't matter when the IATs go sky high, though. 22x6" eBay core + 260kpa 6th gear pulls + 19 degrees of timing = boom.

Less boost, more intercooler, more safety net. Trey has all of these. Too bad he's got sand in his cooter too, so we'll hear about this until the end of time.

LOL yeah a friend of mine has one on his 240 and most ask what it is and the few that do know either laugh or tell him that he is sick. He laughs at those people. A lot.

When you dyno tuned did you try 2-3 pulls in quick succession or initially hold WOT for a few seconds to get some heat in the pistons, and also check for ping at high IATs?
