I can't quote traveling tuning until I have a lineup because travel expenses are broken down and split up between customers.
I'm not much into the BAPs on GenIII stuff, but I suppose... If you want to run meth, you need to put it on the car. Adding it later will require more than a little re-tuning. You DO want it too

I thought the Racetronix kit was a hot wire hit...
01-20-2011, 12:27 PM #104
I mean the whole purpose of the BAP is only to increase voltage right?
I thought the hot wire kit (plug-n-play) Racetronix did just that by using upgraded wiring that is a direct connection so you do not lose voltage.
The BAP is like $250 so if I don't need it, I don't want to spend the extra money and I can put that towards an Alky Meth kit. Two shops now have said get a BAP.

The Racetronix pump and harness, along with 60lb injectors and methanol will take you to 550rwhp (M6). On my OWN car, to find the limit, I pushed a single pump (return fuel system though), meth. and 60lbers to 640rwhp. My fuel pressure fell to 37-38psi at peak demand. That is not desirable obviously, but it was repeatable and it showed me how far one could go. On these cars, if they need more, I usually run a Hobbs-switched second pump personally.

I understand that adding a 2nd pump now will be cheaper than dropping the tank a second time to install another pump later on, but I don't plan on making any more power than the stated 8psi for quite a while and I will just deal with the fueling issue later on if and when I decide to go that route.
Thanks for the info Steve!

Personally i say anything over 550rwhp should be running a dual pump set up!
01-20-2011, 01:09 PM #109
Ive been running 9psi with a single pump for 2 years now!

The only people that don't like it either haven't run it, or they had a Snow kit in the past that failed.

I believe this is the kit number I need: #AC109 Kit
I need to call for pricing tomorrow.
Frost - Just a general question, but does adding a MI system add to the expense of the tune?

Have most of you with an aftermarket fuel pump dropped the tank to install or went the window access route?

After spending hours under our car, there is no question that I would drop the tank to replace the pump. GMHTP had a recent article where they installed the Racetronix pump in an F-body. Didn't look all that difficult really.

Window access mod FTW IMO! Makes life so much easier! I can switch pumps in 20 min!

I like the trap-door for the pump because if there is ANY issue (and 2 out of 5 seem to have some issue at first) it's a 3 minute job to get back to the pump vs. dropping the rear again and dropping the tank again. Also any upgrades in the future (twin pumps, etc) are made easy.
