Irwindale Speedway is *back open for buisness*

Irwindale Speedway is *back open for buisness*

After a several months of not having a dragstrip avaiable to LA / Orange Counties. 1/8th mile street legal dragracing has returned to Southern California. Myself and countless others were in attendence for the first two events.

The opening event was packed. 3.xx second Jet cars and SoCals fastest street legal cars were in attendence.

At the second event the place was still packed. With the staging lanes 100% full all the way to the back wall of the parking lot.

O.G. AWD Silverado Delivers on the Dyno

Previously on the tunedbytad blog,
This awsome truck failed to dyno proper.
Multiple issue prevented a good tune from happening as delivered to the dyno.
The technical details are simple:

-rising rate fuel pressure regulator was adding way too much pressure
-Siemens 60lb injectors were WAY way too small and large duty cycle had them locked open at WOT
-102mm TB was being blamed for REP Reduced Engine Power and and poor idle quality
-lack of 2BAR operating system made for incorrect fuel enrichment curve.
*HPTuners 2Bar operating system upgrade provides Boost Refernced Power Enricment ability!
This is key to a smooth and safe NA to boosted transition.

Having a good customer that allowed me to do my job to rectify all the issues. I was able to reserect this truck into a real deal performer, with nice factory-esque street manners, and cold start.

Injector Dynamics ID-850s resolved all fuel issues

CA 91Pump Gas conservative but effective tune.

Keep your eyes open for this truck in a future issue of Truckin' Magazine.

Fear The Dear Heads and Cam LT1 tunedbytad style

Now that I have your attention lets talk about reliable steet power.

This is my good friend Nick's Impala SS

With my guidance Nick has built himself a fast, reliable, pump gas, daily drivable street car that performs at the track on a buget a hard working student can afford.

One could babble on endlessly with mod lists and part numbers
if your building a LT1 for your ride please contacte before you build your LT1
I consult with my clients for free on their builds in advance to help ensure sucsess

The keys to this build are:
-proven heads, cam, compression combonation
-attention to small details
-and super good flowing heads

91 octane pump gas, on a student buget, moderate milage 350ci factory shortblock, w/ heads cam and boltons

*** You NEED Injector Dynamics Injectors !!! ***

*** You NEED Injector Dynamics Injectors !!! ***

As a professional Dyno Tuner I have never been so excited about a product(s) as the the Injector Dynamics products.

For as long as EFI has been around it has been a fact that:
Large injectors equal a motor with bad manner and poor economy

Now days 5/6/7/8/900 RWHP LS motors are becoming more and more commen
And for the the select few that can afford it 1000+RWHP is obtainable on the street.

When Someone says 95 pound per hour injector,,,,, what comes to mind?

In the past 95 pound per hour injector ment;
crappy high idle, crappy cold start, strange manners, and a price aftermarket ECU to run it.

Injector Dynamics changes all of that!

These are Serialised injectors
SUPER FLOW MACHED at low pulse width and high pulse width
they also come with FULL technical & engineering data for HPTuners.
An injector with a pedigree.
Would you buy an engine w/o a build sheet(s)?
Why buy an injector w/o technical data?

Literally having a 95 lb per hour injector run your 1000RWHP LSX at a 650 RPM cold idle on pump gas with the factory computer is NOW a reality.

The Future is NOW!

the motor is a bit of a "mystery bullet"
this car was challenging with:
