    I do think your anger/energy is misplaced with blaming Ed.

    I have nothing but great things to say about his work, follow up etc.
    My car drives like stock until you go into boost then all hell breaks loose in a nice linear and controllable fashion.
    Keep in mind that this is with a highly modded car making greater than 700 whp.



    He also diagnosed and resolved issues that had nothing to do with tuning and clearly weren't his responsibility.

    If anyone is looking for someone to tune I would highly recommend Ed Hutchins with zero reservations.

    The whisperer has spoken. Thanks for the words bro, but I am not sure who I should blame. Nobody else compromised my motor. It's not really anger at this point. It's water under the bridge (after the water under the heads!). I just want to get my story out like I stated above. I hired a "professional" (or someone who I thought was professional), and this person failed miserably. I understand that mistakes happen. But 23psi, 190+ IAT2s, 12.1 AFR, on stock bottom end wasn't a mistake. It was nothing short of negligent. Period. For the past several months I have told my story to several shop owners, engine builders, tuners, and everyone told me that Ed had no business going anywhere near 20psi even if it was A FORGED MOTOR (my rebuilt forged/stroked motor won't see more than 15-16psi). No competent tuner would ever push a stock bottom end that hard. Most told me that after 12psi you're flirting with disaster. Ed knew I wanted a safe tune from day one, so why he chose to push it so hard is beyond my comprehension. I think he gets some sick satisfaction out of blowing shit up. Anyways, I am glad you're one of the lucky ones that hasn't had any problems (yet). If you were in my shoes you wouldn't be praising the guy, trust me. If you would have been one of the guys that was around that saw what he did, you would be singing a different tune. If you can tell me that he did nothing wrong with the way he pushed my motor, you need to quit sniffing that E85, and better put the cats back on.
    PS. I wouldn't call your motor highly modified, unless I missed something and you got a cam, heads, forged bottom end, NOS or meth or turbos...just sayin.........

    Don't comment unless you read all my "paragraphs". I TOLD HIM THAT WE NEED TO BLEED THE HX. I TOLD HIM THAT WE SHOULD SWAP PULLEYS AND START WITH LOWER BOOST, (10-14PSI). HE KNEW I HAD 3 PULLEYS WITH ME. HE KNEW I HAD 5 GALLONS OF MS109. HE TOLD ME TO LEAVE HIM ALONE AND LET ME DO HIS JOB. In hindsight I should have told him to turn the motor off and get the **** lost. In hindsight I should have told him to pound sand after he lifted the heads, and find a competent tuner. But it was too late for that as the damage was already done.

    Let us know when you get 700whp...
    Remove Ed's scrotum from your mouth and face reality bro. Everybody is entitled to their opinion but the WORST LS tuner wouldn't run 23psi. Period! Ask William Hoffman, from Maryland, if Ed is the best LS tuner out there. Period. I will post Bill's email later. He is the guy that owns the brand new ZL1 that Ed Hutchings melted a couple pistons in late last year. Please enlighten me to the "multiple boards". There are two (cts owners and camaro5). Got booted from both as I was telling everyone my poor experience with Keith Cring of Kdi and the Whipple, and it turns out I WAS RIGHT. I was dealing with biased admins and/or owners as Keith was a supporting member. He was banned from cadillacowners a few months ago. Trust me I have tarnished Ed's reputation, and he's done a good job on his own as well by his comments, demeanor, attitude, etc. I have steered a ton of guys away from Ed, guaranteed.

    I'll be close to 800whp by the end of June. You'll be the first I send the dyno sheet to.

    Let us know when you get a V2.

    Cheers!

    Where is the tune? Can you post it and highlight (or provide screenshots) exactly what is wrong in the tune? The common traits with your multiple threads across several boards is:

    1. You have made arbitrary statements and accusations without providing any evidence what so ever..other than your word (which has been called into question in every thread, including this one).

    2. You are completely unable to control yourself in any way. Anyone who remotely disagrees with you is immediately condemned and the personal attacks begin in a completely chaotic, bipolar manner. Which leads me to...

    3. You seem to have a rather obvious obsession with male genitalia. I'm not one to pass judgment, just thought I would point out the obvious.

    I am quite happy with my V1. Then again, I can actually work on my own stuff without fear of having crap falling off of it afterwards (which was independently verified in one of your threads). I won't need to see a dyno sheet, you'll start another thread with a 10k character post (devoid of any formal structure) about how some new shop took your money and blew your car up when you were on the verge of some type of record.

    Good luck with your meds.

    Re: New Motor Time - Thanks to Ed Hutchings

    Did Ed personally install the Whipple and pulleys that created 20+ psi or did he simply sit in the car to tune it? Did he suggest the blower and specific pulley combo?

    Wow, just read all of the OP's posts on other forums about this...I think this was my favorite quote:

    "OP is a Douche Nozzle - and should go choke himself"

    Thanks God for Google otherwise I wouldn't know what you are talking about in the quote.

I was considering going with the GM 376LSX B15 but heard that the forged internals are generic . Also was considering a 408 long block from Texas Speed or a Jess Bubbs 434LSX.
    But decided to have my motor rebuilt with forged internals . I'll have it sleeved as well.

    I am completely happy with Ed's work on my car. He tuned my car in Chicago the same time he did Cadzla and translux.

    I'll post if I so desire, whether you like it or not. I have little respect for you, nor your opinion, & I have a feeling that sentiment is shared by many. DMM nailed it with his comments. You were banned from those other forums for being a tool, not because you were right. You've been lit up so many times in those other threads, you're like a Christmas tree in December. I've wasted my time reading some of this thread to begin with, to say nothing about actually replying to it... somebody please smack me...
