I believe theres a boost timing subtracting table in ebl. I cant remember tho

Although the map sensor says 1 bar in that screen

You don't read what you quote lol!!!!

In the post I threw up with that video, I mentioned I had to do some quick VE tuning because I switched back to the 1 Bar MAP sensor for the dyno. I did this for resolution, as Ida is more than likely going to want to play with it when he dyno's it. Once the engine is dyno'ed the turbo is going right back on along with the 2 Bar MAP sensor. Also, if you watch the cAFR as I blip the throttle, is stays at 14.5, and the PE box doesn't light up. This is because when I had the turbo on I needed to tune the VE table with the heated narrowband while avoiding Power Enrichment (wideband Learns in PE, narrowband does not), so I maxed out both tables to disable PE. It shoots up to four grand when I blip the throttle, but once I reactivate Power Enrichment it will shoot up to six grand in the RPM band when I blip the throttle just as fast. However, I noticed that I forgot to reactivate PE after I threw up that video yesterday, and that pretty much might point to why oil was shooting out of the front seal in the first place. The bin is a continuation from last year, I honestly forgot I disabled PE.

You guys need to be consistent with your information release. Sometimes it's in the video, sometimes it's in the post. jeez.

By the way, this is Ida Performance in case they sound familiar to my fellow OG's. Five minutes from my house. Long overdue dyno time with them. They are the only guys left in New Jersey that will even touch Tuner Pro, let alone know it inside and out...

Hey Justin, you had a 4th gen like I did. Does the Walker replacement intermediate pipe, as well as the over the axle pipe fit the third gen? I don't mind some alterations, but is it at least close? What I'm running isn't really mandrel bent, and it's a little hacked up, and since the Walker is already 3", as well as inexpensive, it would make sense to just throw it on. Do you have any idea how close in terms of dimensions the 4th gen over the axle and intermediate tube is with the 3rd gen?

Eh it should be close from about mid way under body back over axle. The thirdgen y and 4 th gen y are way different if i recall right, they dump in different locations. The walker pipe i bought was a replacement 2.25 for my thirdgen. I dont remember what my stock 4th gen looked like

Re: Chronicles of a 9 Second Trans Am... Final Chapter

It's funny how, even today, most guys think of the TPI as this mighty "torque" intake setup, but when you delve into the bin you can see why that is. The timing is freaking hilarious, and both the SA and PE come in like Roseann Barr falling from the Empire State Building... BAM, but then of course falling short (career wise in her case) ouch lol. Anyways, Power Enrichment is done, and I don't have it coming in like that. We're getting fifteen inches of snow tomorrow for our second day of Spring if you can believe it, so I have to wait on more videos, but the next video should be on the road. Only suction cup holder I could find for that go-pro I have was for forty freaking dollars at Walmart, the ten to fifteen dollar gismo seemed to be missing in action. Then again, it was more than likely one of them "online only" discounts. Meh...

Re: Chronicles of a 9 Second Trans Am... Final Chapter

Working on mid to upper VE today, hoping to get the car out for a ride later this evening. PE re-enabled, set its' target to 12.5. Still working on the upper VE, but already she's looking to pull pretty high very quickly for a measly 305. Rev limiter set to 6200. Not bad for a stock TPI system ehh...

Re: Chronicles of a 9 Second Trans Am... Final Chapter

Tuning off idle. Not foot braking whatsoever because I get absolutely no traction just touching the freaking throttle pedal as it is, so I eased into it lol. Was letting off, then hitting it, then letting off, etc, could have went sideways the length of the block if I stood in it lol. Hood and headlights were wet sanded that's why they look dull. Yup, my neighbors just adore love me lol...

-- Joe
When I ordered the cam through Lunati they recommended a 6000-RPM rev limit, but they didn't know what cylinder heads I was running. I set the RPM limit based on what the VE & DC are showing me, and the damn engine keeps eating up there. I see the Duty Cycle, and I know what injectors I'm running, and I don't want to give it away just yet because I want the dyno to surprise everybody... including myself, because I only have an idea of what it's going to make based on what I know and see in the datalogs. Dyno is coming soon, car is back on the road, VE up top is done. Just remember this is a stock TPI system right down to the 48mm Throttle Body sitting on a 305 w/Cometic MLS head gaskets, with static compression just at, or even a tad under, 9:0. Again, the heads are 416 ported irons, and although I ported them to the max, they retain the stock valve sizes. Not to mention flat tappet cam. Old school baby. Dyno day is going to be fun as hell...

Re: Chronicles of a 9 Second Trans Am... Final Chapter

It's not so much about the peak horsepower. I think you of all people must have figured out why I was doing this since the beginning. Nothing high tech under the hood, factory parts, it's not a 350, and it's still running the HEI distributor. There is no question she should make more than my C4 LT1 did, she pulls harder, and this engine has less cubes, smaller heads, horrible intake and ignition setup in comparison, less compression, but bigger cam. Nobody should be expecting anywhere near 400 horsepower because that's not going to happen, but just as long as she betters my old LT1 Corvette, then it's right where it needs to be before the turbo goes back on...

Re: Chronicles of a 9 Second Trans Am... Final Chapter

I am curious but based on a cam only refresh L98 using stock everything else i was very disappointed in the results. Sounded good tho but didnt make much more than what some cars do stock and thats with long tube headers and dual exhaust. Stock tpi kills them

The real magic is when the turbo comes in. That is definitely proven and a proper programmed boost curve will get you power and extend peak rpm

Back before chinese turbos everyone and their grandmother was bolting blowers to their L98 cars in the 90s, and the SLP cam's were what everyone was buying. When people started swapping minirams and single planes the cars really started going fast, with no pulley/blower changes.

-- Joe

I saw the same effect with a blower. Blower it should happen more so than turbo because centris are boost by rpm. Higher you rev generally blower puts out more boost if sized right

Turbo generally hits max boost early and maintains it so power follows the na curve to a point. If you have a good programmable boost controller and possibly can boost by rpm or simply by time during the pull, you will have same effect. Boost increase past peak hp will delay the falling ve normally seen since most setups make 15-30 hp per lb boost. Racey setups even more

Tpi car 4400 rpm and 7 psi might make as much hp as same setup at 5500 rpm and 12 psi. You “extend” the power band by replacing the na curve by forcing it to respond

Hellz no. Think of it this way, a Supercharger is like a mechanical fuel pump that has to be sped up to create its' pressure, but that pressure reaches a limit because it cannot be pumped any faster, whereas a turbo-charger is more like an electric fuel pump pumping out a tremendous amount of pressure from the getgo that has to be slowed down to make the very same pressure. The latter comes in earlier, peaks earlier, and lasts throughout the entire RPM band that way. Great example of average vs peak, the turbo simply annihilates it, pound for pound (hehe).

Off topic, but guys, can you believe this? Freaking awesome, it's about damn time!

Re: Chronicles of a 9 Second Trans Am... Final Chapter

Joe, think of what you're saying. A centrifugal supercharger puts out a fixed amount of air per RPM because its' circular motion is subjected by RPM. At a certain RPM the particular supercharger puts out a fixed amount of cfm, regardless of engine size, it's fixed. If the supercharger is spinning at 2000, 3000, 4000, 5000 or 6000 RPM, whether on a SBC, LSX, BBC, whatever, the cfm is fixed at each RPM for the specific supercharger and pulley combo, and the RPM is linear. The boost gradually rises as the engine increases RPM. With a turbocharger, increased exhaust pressure spins the exhaust wheel, and turbo's spin way faster at a given RPM than a supercharger does, and this is why a wastegate is obviously needed, to regulate it. Think of it this way, a supercharger pulley'd up to provide 20-psi on a given engine will get there when it reaches a specific RPM, but that's it, the only way to increase psi with a supercharger is to install a smaller supercharger pulley, or larger crank pulley. Now with a turbo-charger, you set the wastegate for the same 20-psi, but the amount of pressure behind it lying in wait is the key, it's always there. A turbo's boost curve is insane on the dyno, especially when it is properly sized with the engine...

Re: Chronicles of a 9 Second Trans Am... Final Chapter

My take on it-

if you are pullied to max impeller speed at 6000 rpm, you will make peak boost right around there too. lets say 12 psi with the t trim. will make some boost at cruising rpms and always ready to go with no waiting.

if you had a similar sized turbo, you could possibly hit the 12 psi by 4000 rpm and still carry it out the back door. however, you may have some lag at cruising rpms.

boost is just a measure of pressure in the intake. a bigger blower turning the same speed as a smaller one is going to make more boost because its moving more air into the same restriction.

wow this got childish.

Re: Chronicles of a 9 Second Trans Am... Final Chapter

Correct the turbo is not limited by engine rpm. Just exhaust energy which is manipulated by tune, piping designs, turbine wheel size and housing ar and finally rpm lol. There is a engine rpm threshold in which the turbo will make max boost. This is always gonna be sooner than the centri blowers when sized right because turbo shaft speed is almost always higher than blowers. More boost sooner is more power because its more mass flow. Under the curve power is much greater in a proper turbo build since it will reach max flow rate (wastegate setting) sooner

Blower car i tuned couple yrs ago did make practically instant boost starting at roughly 3000 ish rpm hit. Manual trans car so no flash stall. It saw roughly 3-4 psi in that 3000-3200 rpm range and eventually got to 12 psi by 6000. It was a tpi car. 383. Every tpi car i have seen peaks in the mid 4000 rpm range. This one made 7-8 psi by its peak hp of something like 530 whp about 4400-4500 ish rpm. I’d have to go to the shop to get a copy of the graph. But!! Boost increasing to 12 psi by 6000 the car was still making 520-530 whp! This is what i mean by extension of peak rpm. If it was a turbo car holding 7 psi it would nose over at 4500. Both my turbo cars had a na like power curve as expected with the setup.

The power curve can always be manipulated with boost but it takes a good controller and a good setup. This is also how you go 1.1’s 60 foots on 275 tires. Power management and boost curve

When sized right things happen quickly with turbos. 55-60 roll is where my last deal worked! Thats going from vacuum to 24 psi in about a second. To me thats not lag

There's a yay and a nay to that, IMO. Identical engines and identical everything, then yes, boost is just a resistance measure and the same power will be made at the same boost level for each. But now if you have two identical engines, but two different intake diameters, then boost is still a resistance measure, but the same boost levels are no longer the same in terms of flow and the larger intake will make more power at the same boost pressure because you increased the volume of the same resistance. The only way a supercharger could match a turbo charger in terms of boost would be by running a larger supercharger, pully it up as much as it will go, then controlling it by bleeding the charge. This would be replicating what the turbo does, a controlled over boosting scenario.

boost is boost is boost though. what you are talking about is the flow of the system. the larger intake should have LESS resistance, therefore boost pressure should go down while still moving the same or more air. but really the intake is just a fraction of it- there is also head flow/camshaft/etc.etc.etc.
a sb2.2 at 12psi is moving waaay more air than a stock sbc at 12psi.

a sb2.2 at 12psi is moving waaay more air than a stock sbc at 12psi.
You are right. He was saying if they both made same boost the larger intake one would be flowing more mass which may or may not be true if heads and cam were identical. Intake alone may adjust flow/boost in minor ways compared to complete top end differences

And 12 psi from a t4 60 mm is not same mass flow as a 88mm t6 operating at same pressure

Re: Chronicles of a 9 Second Trans Am... Final Chapter

Guys think of what you're saying, and we're talking about the same size turbo. Boost pressure is just telling you how hard the turbo is working to pressurize the intake system, from the turbo's outlet, to the combustion chamber. If both engines are identical from oil pan to throttle body, as well as the same size turbo, but one is running 2 1/2" intake tubing with 3" Intercooler, and the other is running 3" intake tubing with 4" Intercooler, the smaller diameter will have more of a resistance against the turbo's charge, in turn creating more resistance pressure. What that means is the former would create more resistance forcing less of a volume, and the latter will create less resistance while forcing more of a volume (at the same boost pressure setting). Running two different size turbo's with the exact same setup, including the intake and Intercooler size, only creates more lag with the larger turbo, and more heat from the smaller turbo, with the same boost setting...

Re: Chronicles of a 9 Second Trans Am... Final Chapter

Turbos flow mass not volume. An 88 wheel at a 2:1 pressure ratio may flow 100 lbs a min. A 70 mm may flow 60. Thats not the same hp worth of flow

To really know whats goin on you need shaftspeed

Re: Chronicles of a 9 Second Trans Am... Final Chapter

Busy busy day, for everyone else I'm sure as well. Got home not too long ago and figured I would start the GTA up because I had it sitting. Ahh yes, another problem arises. Had the engine reach operating temperature, but then it just kept on going lol. Started to see smoke rising out of the vents I made in the hood, and the fans weren't kicking on, despite being commanded to do so. Fuses are all good, but they won't even trip when I trigger them through the ALDL...

During key on though I noticed something straining electrically in the engine bay when nothing should even be triggered, and other than the fans themselves I can't see anything else being the culprit. Starter is fine. Anyways, once resolved, I'll set the date for the dyno and post up when it's going to happen. Kinda weird that both fans would go at the same time, I need to check to see if they were hitting and rubbing into each other. Weird.

Did you check the voltage at the fans with a test lamp?

Single fan or dual? They share a relay?

Re: Chronicles of a 9 Second Trans Am... Final Chapter

The fans were rubbing. The upper and lower fan brackets eventually need to be replaced. If you look at any picture I posted of the engine bay, you'll notice the upper fan bracket on the drivers side is damaged. The underside is worse, and I only have zip ties holding the fans in place, as well as keeping them separated from one another. One zip tie lost its' original position and somehow moved, and the fans were hitting into each other, had trouble spinning them by hand, and that immediately explained the straining noise. Also explained the noise I heard from inside the car when I Flashed in the latest bin before any of that happened. Went underneath the other day and made sure they were held in place securely until the new brackets eventually get here. Yes though, the fans are wired together through the EBL-P4 for full control of both of them. That was one of the things I did when it happened that day, I pulled the fuel pump relay and connected it then tripped the ALDL, but nothing. Unbeknownst to me they were wedged. Fixed now.

I might sell my 3" exhaust. I got the car aligned yesterday. I attempted to get an inspection sticker as well, but nobody will pass it because the exhaust is too loud. Thinking maybe since I have long tubes I should just do two mufflers middle of the car and go over the axle and out each side.. I dunno.

The other problem is the tires break loose every time I step on the throttle. If I'm going down the road, 30-40mph and I step on it, even at like 50% throttle I get like 5psi of boost when the converter grabs and the *** end kicks out. Maybe my tires are just hard from age?

So now I'm looking for sticky tires too.

Never ends.

Re: Chronicles of a 9 Second Trans Am... Final Chapter

Joe, I wouldn't go the dual muffler route. Just get an aftermarket 3" resonator, it will greatly reduce the noise level in conjunction with the muffler. You won't lose that much power with it whatsoever, especially if you're already breaking loose at part throttle. Just section it after the y-pipe meets the intermediate pipe, plenty of room before the axle...

Hey Rob,


I'm not that worried about power loss, car is already too fast for the street. I wonder if too much backpressure would cook the exhaust valves though.. hrmm.

Maybe I'll give it a try. I have a ton of room.

Re: Chronicles of a 9 Second Trans Am... Final Chapter

Well so much for having the exhaust done by the shop, the kid that I usually hook up is not there, and when they ran the work through the computer it spit out the cost for a few cuts and welds, and after I stopped laughing in their faces four to five minutes later, I decided to just do it myself and spend the money elsewhere. Soooo, I bought the much needed replacement alternator, and I nabbed an Optima red top battery which I am picking up later, got 25% off for buying them online first, so I'm happy. Wasn't about to give the shop that much for something I can do myself, no freaking way. Anyways, time to get down and dirty.... again.

Re: Chronicles of a 9 Second Trans Am... Final Chapter

Okay, he just got back to me for the dyno...

New plugs, fresh oil w/filter was already being done before hand. So;

Base line dyno $175 , 1 hr
Additional dyno time $150 per hr
Advise Tuning your software $125 per hr
A/f bung $85, if you don’t have an extra accessible one in your exhaust system...


Won't need more than an hour as the engine is already tuned, so the additional dyno time does not apply. I don't think I will even use or even need the full hour lol. Need no advice on tuning my software because my man RBob took care of all of that years ago, hehe. A/F bung also does not apply as I have three of them lying in wait to be used in the exhaust stream. So $175 for the hour, or in my case, twenty minutes lol, is fine. I'll deal with it...

Re: Chronicles of a 9 Second Trans Am... Final Chapter

Also, wanted to share with you guys who are following along. Ever since I installed this replacement 305 I have had oil issues seeping out the front main seal on the timing chain cover at high RPM. Tried every conceivable fix, but it just kept happening. Then it dawned on me. Yes, prepare for a Homer Simpson moment lol... when I installed this 305, I replaced the rod bearings, put in fresh new oil w/filter, then primed the engine beforehand with a priming tool. Pictures were up, but photobucket has since become irrelevant, so the pictures aren't there earlier in this thread. The engine oil now seems to be stable between the Full mark and Add mark on the dipstick. Now, I know for a fact that the oil dipstick is the right one for this engine. I bought it from a local member. However, it still didn't dawn on me just yet why oil was shooting out the front and at high RPM only. It was overfilled. No doubt about it. Look at the oil filter I went with (Bosch), it is half the size of a normal filter. I completely forgot I went with that one, so even though I filled the engine with the correct amount of oil based on the larger filter that would hold a quart, I never compensated for the smaller oil filter which would normally hold half of a quart on its' own, which resulted in rising a tad too high at higher RPM because there was more oil in the pan, but is now stable between Full and Add...

Re: Chronicles of a 9 Second Trans Am... Final Chapter

overfilling one shouldnt make it leak, though. most likely a seal/gasket leaking.

It would have to be substantially overfilled. Ever drop 5 quarts in a stock oil pan to see how high up it goes? It doesn't even come close to the gaskets.

The crank counterweights would be churning it like butter.


Leaks suck. My blower is pissing oil for some reason, out of a spot it shouldn't be.

Re: Chronicles of a 9 Second Trans Am... Final Chapter

Guys, telling myself it's because of the oil filter is the only thing keeping me sane lol. The worst part is that it does not do that with the turbo hooked to the exhaust on a full oil pan, it only does it with a free flowing exhaust with no turbo, and only at high RPM, which would point to the damn piston rings. However, it is stable now where it is, regardless of RPM, so that is a good sign. Telling myself it is because of the smaller oil filter is what is keeping me from torching the damn car...

It's definitely coming from the front seal.

Re: Chronicles of a 9 Second Trans Am... Final Chapter

if the balancer had any grooves worn into it, you need a repair sleeve for it.
also, excessive crankcase pressure will find any weak seals/gaskets quickly and spew oil out.

Re: Chronicles of a 9 Second Trans Am... Final Chapter

Figured I would update this thread. Need to replace a fusible link down by the starter, and RBob has been helping me chase down another issue that sprung up. Gonna try to have that wrapped up this weekend. Also bought a much need upper and lower dual fan bracket from Eric, a local member who sells third gen parts here in New Jersey. He has just about everything you could ever need. Also nabbed the final piece for the lower dash that covers the fuse box from him, needed that piece since I bought the car years back. Installing the fan brackets as I am writing this...;

Okay, RBob helped me isolate the problem. Test light was indicating a short somewhere, even with all fuses pulled, light was still being triggered. Headlight relay was stuck on, you Camaro's guys don't have to be bothered with that crap, but us bird guys have to deal with the flip up lights. Anyways problem solved. As for the fan issue, Eric not only hooked me up with the upper and lower brackets, but they came with the fans already attached. He's freaking awesome. But no, the fans again weren't being triggered. However, I think the coolant needs to be burped, because the fusible links down by the starter, as well as the relays, are all fine. Will update once that's taken care of...

Okie dokie, RBob helped me pinpoint this one as well, and this is no doubt the culprit when it comes to the fans. Hopefully this helps someone else out there with a cooling fan issue when the fuse and fan relay is fine. It was in fact a fusible link, but not any down by the starter, it was by the battery. Have no idea how this even happened, but then again, I did remove the battery a few hundred times this year alone, just never noticed it I guess. Anyways, gonna fix this one as quickly as possible because I believe the battery wires are discontinued so I can't nab a fresh new one w/connector and fusible link in place, and the ones I came across used seem to have the very same problem...
