    SVT BAIT's 2009 Season

    Hey everyone. As you can see from my post count, I'm not an avid poster, but I thought that I would share the story of my 2009 year.

    I posted my goals at the start of the season, and I figured that I'd follow up with what I've accomplished.

    Here is a basic rundown of this past summer. I put the car away for the winter last week and have been doing some reminiscing of the 2009 season:

    The car:




    Took the car out in April, and put some LOTB badges on, McNord/6LE gauges in and some new rotors/pads.







    ...and enough gauges to pilot a space shuttle...



    Went to the track and did an anemic 13.2 @106. This is thanks to my shiftlight breaking and my needles not being in the right spot after the gauge install.




    Tackled a Heads and Camshaft swap myself. First time I’d done anything of that caliber. It went well, although slowly.







    Only major hitch was that I stripped the threads in my fuel rails.

    (Getting ready to start it for the first time )



    Drove down to Toronto to get the car tuned.







    Found out I had burnt through my O2 wiring harness, so the car was unable to be tuned in closed loop. The stock MAF was almost maxed out and I seemed to have a valvetrain issue. I only put down 432rwhp.






    Took the engine apart to find out my pushrods were 0.1” too long and bought a new MAF and Lid combo. I also was able to fix the O2 wiring problem.




    For the rest of the summer I tried to email my tuner with datalogs of the car, but the wideband wasn’t working properly. I started using a new wideband but it is still having issues.

    September 11th was a bad day. I got pulled over by the Ministry of the Environment and got tickets for not having my EGR. That was a $500 night. I have since put the EGR back on, for fear of them taking away my plates.





    So the EGR went back...



    A few fall pictures:








    Idle Clip, just for fun:




    Plans for next year:

    -Finalize the tune
    -Lower the car
    -Adjustable Shocks
    -Midwest Chassis Fab 9"

    OR a C5 Z06

    Hopefully it will be a better year!

    Nice pics of car, work, and women. Sucks about the EGR issue. But it looks like you're on the right track.

    Thank you very much! Hopefully no trouble from the Ministry of the Environment next year!

    Wow looks good!!!!!
    Thanks!

    I really hope so. I'm tired of it looking like a 4x4.

    I saw this picture in another thread, its a really good picture IMO.
    Thank you! It seems to be pretty popular!

    Wow!!! That is sick! Good pics and you look young as fuck too. Congrats!
    Thanks man! I'm 20, but look like I just got my license. Lots of people don't believe it's my car.

    I appreciate it!

    I'm not really sure what I want for next year. It's either a 9" or a Z06.

    I might be leaning for the Z06. Time will tell.

    Nice car. Congrats on doing the heads and cam swap. It looks like you were in the engine bay on that one shot. Have never seen that on a late model f-body.

    There is a decent amount of room with the radiator and water pump out of the car. Although, I am a small guy though.
