I got some results from the track today with my APS kit. went on the Dyno on Thursday night, my E-Boost ll craped out on me and I can only run off of the wastegates which made a rock steady 8.5 PSI and it made 65x RWHP and 660 RWTQ. Went to the track today and ran a best pass of
60FT 1.465
1/8 6.486
MPH 107.237
I was pretty happy with it for the first time out
here is a video of that run

my combo is as follows
LS2 block, 403 CID, AFR 225 CNC heads 225, Compression ratio 8.5 to 1, 234/234 at .050 598/598 lift cam. APS twin turbo kit, Nasty performance stage 3 street system with Lonnies twin Racetronix in tank pumps, Racetronix 96 pound injectors, converter harness, and a AEM impedance converter. 4L80E transmission that I got on a swap here, supposedly a Rossler but is is not painted black so I don't know if it is built or not, it has a Vig stall converter, I was told by vig that it was between a 2500 and 3600 but I don't know for sure what it is. it has a Moser 9 inch rearend with a Detroit locker and a 3.50 gear, 35 spline axles, Full BMR K member, front upper and lower control arms, rear lower control arms, and Panhard bar, Spohn Torque arm with 2 drive shaft safety loops. Carolina powertrain 3 inch DOM steel drive shaft. BMR extream duty drag Sway bar, double diamond sub-frame connectors, and 1/2 of my own homeade 304 stainless steel true dual 3" exhaust. I am shifting at 6000 RPM but the transmission seems to be slipping on the 1-2 shift and on this pass I had it set to shift at 5000 RPM and it took it from there to 6800 to compleat the shift.

for only 8.5 pounds of boost I am pretty damn happy. I think it has another 2 tenth's if the tranny will shift correctly and it is still on the stock springs and shocks so I may have some more to pickup there. Will try to hit Rockingham in the next couple of weeks.

Yeah Darren your car was really getting down the track. I am sorry I couldn't run you yesterday. I lost 3rd and Overdrive on the 4th pass yesterday. But I should have my new tranny in a week or two so maybe we can get a chance to line them up.

Congrats on the runs Darren. It will really be interesting to see the car making 15+psi with a non-slipping tranny. Maybe one day I'll re-new my interest in going fast again and buy some parts for the camaro.
