    Do you know of a 160deg t-stat for the N* - I could only find a 176!

    Is it a generic part maybe?

    re: RATTLE Snake Bite the XLR-V

    Gizmo and Jesse,

    Just got back from Brazil and I see the car has already been tuned great job on the work done. I am curious what other mods you have done so far. I didn't get close to hitting 500rwtq on my pulls but it was the middle of summer in Atlanta so that did not help. Jesse I will be calling you tomorrow to discuss the tuning and to see what other things would benefit our cars for power and longevity. If you think this engine can be at 500rwhp and 500rwtq I guess I will need to schedule a special visit to your shop soon. I am surprised that 90lb injectors are needed.

    Great work.

    I am anxious to see what the Injector size needs to be as 90lb sounds really big. But what do I know...... Jesse is the builder and knows what he will need. I just hope that is overkill. I was hoping to get away with either 60lb, 73lb, or 80lb Bosch Injectors.

    If you have a tuner Jesse explained what needs (earlier in the thread) to be done to keep you from setting a code. If not any tuner shop can do it for you.

    re: RATTLE Snake Bite the XLR-V

    Looks like I will need to make a special trip up to Indiana and visit Jesse for a custom tune. It seems that my cam timing was never changed after my mods which is why my power levels are lower than expected. Jesse told me that over 500rwhp is possible with these cars it just needs to be tuned and possibly adding some cooling mods and a lower thermostat. Now I just need to find the time to get up that way now that the weather is starting to get better.

    The person that does my tune also changes the cam timing. A little more power can be had, but the PCM will only allow so much timing change before the check engine light is turned on and the cam timing is defaulted to static timing.

    re: RATTLE Snake Bite the XLR-V

    Good to know.. I finally had an issue that caused my car to go into limp mode. What a pain it is to drive in limp mode. It just got it out of the shop for some small nuisance type stuff and now back in the shop 1 day later. Very frustrating at this point.
