    Well, I DID, I was slated to drive to Scottsburg In/ Louisville, KY last weekend so i wanted to have SOME fun.

    So friday, i left work early and headed to my tuners house and picked him up.

    We tuned in about 5lb, (just under the 5 psi marker) and worked our way to around 15 degrees of timing.

    I gotta say, this sucker does pull like a mad man on Crack!

    Hopefully i cant get this sucker turned up to about 10-12psi before the weekend, but we will see.

    I think the next ghost is giving itself up. 4l60e. <<<<<<<<<< the second one ive had now.

    Its looking like a MVB 4l80 is my near future. We shall see.

    Im draining the trans fluid tonight to give it a look, but i think it might have smelled a bit burn last night.

    Very cool, sorry about the trans, it won't handle much more than 500, new upgrades on the drive train. BTW we need a video please!!!

    Didnt drain it. Almost didnt want to know. Although i did drive it again.

    not sure, ill have to look at the log to see whats going on. I almost think its becuase i left out at the top of second then said "fuck it" im not stopping and got back into right at the shift, might be why we thought we felt a slip.

    I get some video up when a take one that we can see, LMAO! the two i have are nothing. pretty sad. my phone is terrible and its hard to hold the camera steady while maintaining control. LOL

    we are going to try to get some more tuning in this sunday i believe,but ill be packing to move for the next couple weeks, so i might not be able to get alot done with the car.

    Take a ride solo in the car and stick the phone/camera under the passenger head rest. It will actually hold there and take decent video (even through wheel-hop on a track!)

    Btw remember to press the headrest down hard enough to hold it lol
