Eco Power Parts / Re: EPP noisemaker eliminator to hot pipe upgrade kit
« Last post by EcoPowerParts on April 22, 2019, 09:04:36 PM »
I would say with the IC finally released. The Upgraded turbos out there. The Upgraded HPFP possibilities. Having all the hard pipes and better intake might actually make some sense / WHP now ?
Well possibly but the biggest is no boost leaks :)

Look to the GM Turbocharger Coking test for determining effects of engine oil & its' components to determine effectiveness of deposit control in coolant-cooled turborcharger systems.  The TEOST 33C test, developed to determine engine deposit control, is ineffective in this area.  Moly does not affect deposit levels, but viscosity modifiers and antioxidants do.

Gauge pods all shipped yesterday, they came out amazing! Lots more in stock ready to ship.
These come with both two and three gauge faceplates.

Intake/Exhaust / Re: Fancy dual intake

I hopefully have addressed all manufacturing issues with the intake, I did a test fit yesterday with the box, looks great, next step is to get the pipes in stock from my supplier.
It has been tested to show a decrease in WGA duty cycle which shows improved air flow with the 2.5" pipes.
I hope everyone will be happy when done.

The oil should relieve most of the LSPI fears, I think.  People don't just move to a new spec without due cause.  As of yet, the %age allotted to fuel itself for LSPI occurrences is yet undetermined.  BUT, higher ethanol blends do seem to have a higher risk to reward ratio in this regard, bolstering those who want to go full E85 ...
Wheels/Tires / Re: New wheels installed

I can't speak for the flower wheels, but my 20" MKS wheels (that come with the EAP option) were 33lbs.  My new ones are 28lbs and I noticed a positive difference.

OP - Wheels look great!  I considered those, but wanted something with a little more offset to sit flusher.
Troubleshooting / couple questions pcv and driveline
« Last post by FLEXXX on April 22, 2019, 07:03:04 AM »
I have a couple questions for those who has dealt with either issue..

1. I did a couple launches this weekend to see how everything is going had no issue. this morning on way to work notices a slight vibration racked and checked car, rear cv (which I just rebuilt) loose cockeyed and one bolt broke.
I know they were torqued. has anyone else had issues with bolts backing out? I have new bolts on order.

2. I was driving around in manual mode and was in first gear in the neighbor hood. about 3000 rpm and started getting some pretty good smoke, don't have any under boost or idle. checked around and found oil in lines from valve covers to intake manifold and intake inlet pipe. so who is running a catch can and did you have this issue before or has it resolved it?  I read the sticky on this issue, I have a brand new pcv box, I cleaned the valve covers while it was all apart. I think I just need to ad a catch can/oil separator.

thank you for any input.
General Tuning / Re: Tuning NA 3.5
« Last post by Brucelinc on April 22, 2019, 06:24:34 AM »
Livernois has a tune for the naturally aspirated 3.5.   I wouldn't expect a dramatic power increase since there are no turbos to work with but I suspect it would be noticeable.   At the very least, it likely improves transmission behavior and throttle response.  Tweaking the timing and AF/R should yield results.    I assume your current MyCal would work on a 2018 and that their new device wouldn't be necessary.   They could certainly answer that for you.
