Had a really good night in the Garage, Ive been hesitant to go WOT because the exhaust has been hitting the bottom of the car and i didn't want to break anything sooo...I rented a lift today and inspected the car while the suspension was loaded and sure as hell the Drive shaft loop was the suspect. For one it was not centered on the Driveshaft and when the suspension was loaded the DS would occasionally hit the DS safety loop causing a small vibration i have been chasing for a very long time which you would never see without the car being totally loaded properly on all corners. The rattle that ended up being the pipe hitting the bottom hoop on the Drive shaft loop. Since the loop was welded on i had to completely cut it off because the bottom loop was welded on way to low. Since I welded the exhaust back on higher then it was before to allow more clearance it was the loop that had to go Plus it was not centered. I ordered another Safety loop ill install when it comes in.
I also decided i like that lift so much I am buying one to install in my garage this winter as soon as I finish vaulting the ceiling in my current garage to make room for the extra height the lift will require. Im buying the kind you drive on and you can lift up the car and store another one under it.
Anyhow everything is at 100% now after my test drive tonight so ITS DYNO TIME FOR 93 octane.... As soon as i can rent the dyno to make a few pulls on 93 ill get the Race tune done on E-85 which we already started and go back for some 25-27 PSI numbers. I would like to see about 600 RWHP not locking up on 93 then when i finish both tunes and dynos ill go back and lockup the converter to see how the numbers change.
