Alright boys I totaled my beautiful C63 W204 and have almost 40k to play with for the next build.

I've been wanting a C5 Corvette for a while and want to go for it. The LS1 seems a bit too slow and I want something much faster than my 560 hp C63.

Tell me why a LQ9 Twin Turbo is not the best, cheapest, most reliable choice.

            Agreed that it's unnecessary because you're not getting close to putting that power down on the street, but you're a moronic wrenchlet if you think that anything you listed in your post is a substantial issue. Moving the battery to the trunk, building a new alternator bracket, and putting up some heat shields are all completely insignificant changes.
            FYI, the "wheel tubs" aren't modified in that pic. The plastic fender liner covers were just pulled off and it still runs stock front tire size.

            In the very beginning yes I stubbornly ran about 6 lbs on stock fuel injectors, which are designed for e85 so mind you they do have a little extra capacity for boost. It did blow up again this time at 16 lbs I believe too much timing, but it was reliable at that power level for a while

            Well I know how it is, you've got the bug bad - once you get a taste of that boost you just want more more MORE!

            Ignition timing is the problem that nearly everyone is scared of, most people say you MUST use a dyno to safely get the most out of your ignition timing.

            Yeah Im hoping I found the issue - stock ford ecu seems to turn off knock recogniton above something like 7000 rpm - my rv limit is 7500; not only does it stop checking for knock but it also defaults to the timing table directly and ignores a lot of adjustments on it (cyl head temp, vvt angle, etc), so when I was at the top of 4th it was stuck in that 7000-7500 rpm range for long enough things got hot enough to detonate and an hero.

            Thats my theory anyway, I was also playing with vvt in that tune iirc so the different timing might have fricked with residual exhaust filling or something, dunno. Its gonna get low compression pistons next because it could just be 16 lbs on 10.5:1 on 93 is just far too much lol. Can't say Im dissapointed stock bottom end with just ring gap did really really really well for me so far

            Oh so you've got a stock ECU which is tuneable?
            Do you have the ability to moron the ignition timing for every psi of boost? Because that's quite important, the ballpark figure I've heard is 1 degree of moron for every psi of boost.

            Anonymous

            Oh no dog Ive been in this car deep, stock ecu file is all fricked with I learned a lot of powerpc and the likes reverse engineering it lol. Yeah my stock timing tables are expanded now to 300% load so. Peak timing is like 8 degrees at full boost and 7500 rpm iirc

            Again bizarre if its knock Id figure my bearings would be beat to hell but jusy like early on the ring lands break and compression goes to nothing

            Anonymous

            Foolish of me to assume you don't already know what you're doing with timing. I believe breaking ringlands first from detonation is not unusual, but you could be right about that whole 10.5:1 on pump fuel thing - you could get away with that on ethanol but that's pretty far out there for the world of petrol.

            Remember the whole appeal of dropping compression on a boosted motor is it means you can get more charge into the combustion chamber (more energy, effectively more displacement) for the same or less cylinder pressures.

            Honestly basic tuning on pump gas on the street for me has just been a matter of adding a half a degree or a degree of timing for each rpm/load cell until I see knock moron and then backing off a degree; its not the right way to do it but you run into knock long before peak torque even N/A, on e85 or race gas as I understand you definitely need a dyno. Generally for fuel on pump gas its pretty established that around 12.5:1 should be your target for afr for best knock resistance, this is something I havent messed much with

    Its cheaper to just go with a mid gen f body instead. Better engine bay space and don't have to deal with the pain that is a torque tube and transaxle cradle. A vette is gonna be a lotta pain for pretty much no gain since they weigh about the same and you can dedicate more money to the build since you'll be paying more like $3k vs $10k on the car

      If ur steering wheel is even turned a tiny bit, it won't give you full power.
      If there's a cone or anything in a proximity of a car, it won't give you full power
      If there's another car anywhere remotely close to you, it won't give you full power.
      If you're closing in on another car, it won't give you full power.
      If the tires aren't the correct temperature it won't give you full power.
