I've been good. Frustrated with my car after popping the head gasket and then having the head studs all leak, but other than that life goes on as usual!

It is getting pretty dang cold up here! Single digits tomorrow night. Ugh! At least the new(to me) truck and new plow are ready to go when the dreaded white stuff comes!!

Looks like your neck of the woods is gonna luck out on missing the Nor'Easter... Glad to hear things are well... besides the car anyway.

Yeah, we don't really seem to get much in the way of severe winter weather anymore really. Just cold and rain lol!

How are things with you? Anything exciting happening here on the forums?

I ended up popping a head gasket at the track this summer. I had it turned up to about 20 PSI of boost and it was loving it...until "that run" LOL! I was using FelPro 1003 head gaskets and ARP bolts from when I originally built the motor and I knew there would be a limit. No major damage done, everything looked great on teardown with no signs of detonation pitting on the pistons. I had the heads machined to clean up the impression of the fire rings from the old head gaskets and re-assembled using MLS gaskets and head studs. I made the mistake of buying ARP's Teflon thread sealant for the head studs and darn near every single one of the 34 head studs leaked coolant when I fired the engine back up. I finally ended up pulling each head stud back out (one by one), cleaning the studs and the bolt holes and re-sealing everything using Permatex #2 instead. So far everything looks good, but I'm keeping an eye on it for a while to be sure no leaks (internal or external) recur.

I only got a few runs in at the track before I popped the head gasket, and only 2-3 runs on my "new" Mickey Thompson ET Drag slicks so I'm still dialing in the launch. 60' times have lots of room for improvement with my best being a 1.9 LOL. Best ET was a 7.77 at 93.8 MPH with a 2.000 60'. Best 60' and MPH were on the run where I popped my head gasket, racing an LS1 powered Camaro on a 100 shot of nitrous (I took him off the line and never looked back, even with blowing the head gasket, btw :twisted: ) That run was a 7.9 at 94.5 MPH with a 1.9 60'. This is at my local 1/8 mile track that's only about 5 minutes from my house hahaha.

Hoping to get mid-low 7's next summer, but I'm pushing the limits of my current clutch too, so we'll see!

-Paul



good thing it was only a head gasket...im running the mls head gaskets sprayed with copper spray on them.....works very well.

Thanks! I haven't been around much myself. There's even an update to this update now! She's got a brand new 412 cubic inch engine sitting in the bay now. I've got almost 600 miles on it at this point. Dart SHP block, Sonny Bryant billet crank, Wiseco forged Pistons, Carillo H beam rods, custom Bullet hydraulic roller cam, and topped off with AFR 220 heads. I even upgraded to Holley HP EFI to replace the Commander 950 system I'd been using for years. Haven't had it to the track or on the dyno yet, but I won't ever have to worry about leaking head studs like I had ongoing issues with on the GM block I was using before! I'll try and get some pics of the new engine up when I get to a computer.

Got a chance to throw the car on the dyno this past weekend with the new 412 in it. I'll start a new thread with some pictures of the build of the new engine, but wanted to share the numbers here first.

I knew the Turbonetics TC78 turbo would be the limiting factor for power with this new engine, and I found where that limit is. It starts choking out around 4000 RPM. I put down 495 RWHP and 698 RWTQ on a Mustang chassis dyno. Made peak torque at 3500 RPM and power (and boost) started falling off around 4000 RPM. The small 68 MM exhaust turbine is choking out that big 412, gotta figure out a way to shoehorn a bigger turbo into the space I've got!

Average torque through the pull was just over 500 ft lbs, I was impressed! The first pull on the dyno the tires spun pretty hard when I nailed it in 4th gear hahaha!

That's some crazy torque for sure. You could always remote mount the turbo where the muffler should be, you are sacrificing a bit of heat for the spool, but I'm sure the 412 won't notice it too much.

I toyed with the idea of a rear mount setup when I first built the turbo setup, but decided I didn't like the idea of depending on scavenging pumps and such. It would have made a lot of things much easier with the build and fabrication for sure, but I'm stubborn and like to make my life difficult lol!!

So far I'm VERY happy with the new Holley HP EFI system, excellent bang for the buck!

I wasn't aware that the Holley setup could handle boost. How's it holding up?

I had a Commander 950 system before which worked with up to a 3 bar MAP sensor, this new setup will work with up to a 5 bar sensor. Handles boost great and I've been very happy with it so far. The self learning features are very nice and have helped me get things dialed in without needing a co-pilot constantly!

is it a true self tuning? Obviously other than the initial parameters you have to input? I have been seriously considering going this route when I build a motor. Did you use the "carb" looking throttle body injector or mpfi?

Any pics of the setup?

How hard was it to set up?

Does it work with your stock gauges and such?

Sorry for all the questions just really interested in theses systems.

It self tunes the fuel map according to what AFR you desire. There is a fuel map as well as a target AFR table. You start with a base fuel map that is somewhat close (ideally on the rich side) and then set the target AFR table and drive! Obviously you still have to tweak cold start parameters and adjust the spark map, but it does a pretty darn good job of adjusting the fueling, even under boost!

I'm running a Holley Stealth Ram, not a carb type throttle body, as I prefer the look of it. A nice single plane and a big throttle body would probably flow better though.

Install and setup of the new HP EFI was quite easy, although I was familiar with the basics from doing my Commander 950 years ago. I chose a base map from Holley's collection that was somewhere in the ballpark of my engine, changed the fuel injector size in the programming and it fired up first try, just like it had been running the day before!

I will try to post a new thread soon with more info and pics on the new engine!

-Paul

Edit: Here's a picture of the setup. This is actually my old engine, but it looks virtually identical now.

That's why, once the map is dialed in, you are supposed to disable learning compensation under boost ;)

You're also supposed to narrow the window of allowable compensation throughout the map once things are dialed in so that if something goes wonky you don't run the risk of throwing things way out of whack!

Thought I'd add some video to spice this thread up a little.

Here's a clip of me loading the car on the trailer to take it home from my friend's garage where I swapped in the 412. Please excuse my terrible driving, brand new engine management hadn't had any idle tuning yet to speak of, and the McLeod Street Twin had zero break in miles, so it was rather touchy LOL!
http://youtu.be/TuU-4s9DCFE

Now here's a shot of my first dyno pull at a local dyno day this past fall. She spun the tires pretty hard when boost hit, hence the squealing and smoke haha!
http://youtu.be/m6B0V6zWG3g

...and a clip of my second dyno pull, tires were cleaned off and warmed up, so no spinning. Found out the poor little TC78 can't flow enough on the exhaust side for this new engine (no surprise there LOL!) She was pretty much out of breath at 4000 RPM. Put down 495 RWHP and 698 RWTQ. Peak torque hit at 3500 RPM. LOTS of fun on the street with that torque, but I've got to iron out a plan to shoehorn a bigger turbo in there so I can take full advantage of this new engine :)

Hope everyone is weathering this rough winter well, it hasn't been much fun up here, that's for sure!!

Engine sounds SOOOOOOO GREAT!

Do you have the self learning EFI? How do you like it. When I build a motor for mine, im trying to decided between self learning EFI or the LS engine management system.....or just an ls swap.

You still have the HSR or one of those carb looking TB?

Thanks, she's got some bark to her LOL!

The HP EFI I upgraded to along with the new engine is self learning. I have been very happy with it so far! Doing a 24x conversion and running a Gen III/IV factory PCM is an excellent way to go too, but I really like the ability to tune on the fly as well as all the extra inputs and outputs that you get to play with using an aftermarket setup. Going from the Commander 950 ECU to the HP EFI I can say it is definitely easier to get up and running decent with the newer setup!

I'm still running the HSR. I debated going to a 4 barrel setup, but I really like the look of the Stealth Ram and I'm gonna see how far it'll carry me. I fully realize there are better ways to go, but I have it, so I'm gonna see what I can do with it! :) I'm hoping that once I work a properly sized turbo in there I can brush the quadruple digits at the rear tires, or at least very high triple digits LOL. The new engine can certainly take it, if I can feed the air and fuel to it!

LS swap is certainly becoming a cheap and easy way out. I'm just tired of everyone dropping them in EVERYTHING (No different than everyone dropping SBCs in everything in days gone by I suppose). I had already built the turbo setup and everything for the SBC, so I stuck with it. There are pros and cons to each for sure.

If I was starting a brand new build now I'd be hard pressed to not drop an LS in it, aside from my stubborn-ness kicking in LOL :twisted:

Not to be a downer or ask Mr. M to visit... but My question is how much more torque can the drivetrain handle before something breaks or tears loose from the chassis?

Oh, there are lots of weak links in the chassis lol! I'm combating that by not running sticky tires. Right now it'll just smoke the tires before something breaks. Engine and clutch are all set. Next will be a differential and driveshaft (3.27 geared 9 bolt posi and 4th gen aluminum shaft right now). Eventually I will upgrade the internals of the T56, too, but I have seen those take some serious beatings and still stand up.

There's plenty of room left for more upgrading, and I'm sure things will break if I spend much time at the track Hahahaha!

Random, but where the hell did you get the original air cleaner that was mounted to the throttle body originally?

It actually came with the Stealth Ram when I bought it used. It's a K&N though, readily available!
