On the 11.2 run I gave it as much as it could hold and in the video you can see that I stalled it up and the converter let it go for a split sec thats when I knew to let off the brake and roll out. I think it was somewhere around 2K RPMS when it gave out. I know it has more in it. You have to make sure you are in DYNO mode to get your good burnout and also don't be afraid to sit there at the tree after the light goes green. Take your time and focus on your launch.

Kamil was the methanol system on when you were doing the 1/4 mile runs?

No it was not on, I had an empty tank and did not use Meth on any run. On the last run I put in water and ice in the tank, but it was very little and set it to 8psi and full at 15psi.

Looks like we will be Dyno Tuning the car in the near future. I will not make any trips to the track until that is done. Hopefully we can get it all figured out and next time the car hits the track it can crack a 10s pass. I will keep you guys updated with new info with new DYNO numbers and when its ready.

Cool write up! The car has come together very nicely. I have faith that you will see 10's before upgrading the turbos. Proper dyno tuning should definitely be the key!

Thanks. We will be able to tell in the next couple weeks or less. I have to agree with you tuning is key

I'm adding a fee more mods to the mod list including a nee set of custom made wheels which hopefully will get started soon. Im also thinking about going with the big turbos vs just the billets. Time will tell but for now trying to turn current goals into reality.

Yea Adam some nice turbos would be awesome to do.

I will try to get car in the shop this week to get it all sorted out. I have to talk to the guys to see how much work they got going on but hopefully they have some time to get this thing sorted out so that I can hit the track again this coming weekend.

For now it looks like it will take a while to go back to the track. I'm nearing closing on my house, car is not tuned yet. I think it's pointless heading out to the track with same setup this weekend, since I wont be able to improve by much at all. My 60ft was as good as it will get, maybe I can still dip into the 1.5x on a better tire. This however won't correct my issue with up top. I'm still trying to figure out whats going on and try to get this thing tuned.

Most goals worth pursuing take time. When it comes to ET goals, IMO it is more fun to chip away at that desired time while having fun racing than to set a goal so low you achieve it right away. Keep at it and you will get there.

You should try one of the CAI's like others are running. It should make a noticeable improvement.

I agree with you 100%. It's never better just to go to the track and run your best time right off the bet. I like working on getting the car to go quicker every time I'm out, its a great reward to go and get a personal best every time I'm out. I'm trying to get the car tweaked once that happens, I will be working on driving it to its max potential once it is done at the shop.

I'm strongly considering to do this mod. I want to see how well I can do once car is tweaked and tuned right. After that I can get some base line #s with and without the cold air intakes. I can also see how much they will give me as far as the track goes.

Front Windshield finally tinted thanks to Dent Solutions Plus for getting it wrapped up before this weekends show.

Car is still not tuned, waiting to get it done. I will try and see if maybe we can speed things up and get car on the dyno sooner.

Long day at the show yesterday, saw some awesome cars including Mid_Cartel'ss (Forum Member) wide body SL65 thing was def an amazing car to look at. Awesome turnout with well over 600+ cars. The mercedes crowd was not huge as usual from what I seen were 3 SL Wide Body cars, The new E63 AMG rocking a super nice set of wheels, a few old school benzes, 2 or 3 E classes. Other than that a lot of other unique cars all over. I took 2nd place 1st place went to a red wide body owned by GINO a guy that Im not sure is on here. I know its a prior wide body kit with DPE wheels and Speedriven work.



Next step is getting the car tuned this coming week, and if all goes well track time again with hopefully better results.

If I would have seen this post earlier I would have tried to make it up there. I'm about an hour south. A guy I work with has a new E63 S. Man is that thing bad! He said it's faster than his 911 Turbo.

How are your lights now that they're blacked out? Still good at night? Wanna do this mod possibly. Really wish i could find a 03+ front bumper too so i could fit a lip on it.

I saw your car at that same show as we were walking around... I did a double-take and went over to get a closer look. Lost my friends for a bit too!

Damn gorgeous car...
