I will be up at Napierville today for time trials in case anyone in the Montreal area is going today also:D

I still have my winter tires on unfortunately, I did not expect the weather to be so nice the first week of April and do not have time to change them over for today at the track. I just installed a ported throttle body and port matched intake manifold to test out today.

Hope to see some of you at the track today or later this year.

Cheers,
VTuner

April 11 Napierville - 13.40 @ 108mph

I must apologize first for not posting that I would be up at the track today - I was uncertain what the weather had in mind today, but it turned out to be a really nice cool (56F) partly cloudy day so I zipped up to the track to test the ported throttle body a bit more with Stage 2.

Last week the car ran really poorly (like 13.9 -14 seconds) with the new TB. Today it was still misbehaving in 4th gear like last week (closing down the throttle and oscillating between 50-85% in 4th gear), but not quite as bad as my best time was 13.40 seconds at 108mph. My best trap speed for the day was 110.4 mph. All runs were on 93 octane pump gas and I was running my winter tires (Nokian Hakkapeliitta RSi 235/45-17s):cheesy:

So far I do not see any significant airflow gains (even in 1st-3rd gears which seem to be running fine) with the ported TB. As far as I can see we are currently limited by the 19T compressor flow limits. I am watching the GM V6 twin turbo development closely as that might present new options that we can adopt in the future.

Cheers,
Brian
