I still think your car needs this and some E-47. You know you want the extra 40 whp or so it will add. Your motor can handle it. These motors are very strong stock IMHO.
I am going to keep bugging you until you do this
Git him David! lol.
Thanks for your help in that mess I got involved in, I appreciate it. I've finally given up over there, my head hurts from doing this too much
I'm gonna gather up the web page links for the parts Jeb is using in case anyone else wants to go this route. Unfortunately, he's trying to use the same Devil's Own controller that I've been using and they're on backorder. It's the same controller ZZP uses, but under a different name. Does someone here want to do a little leg work and find out where these controllers are coming from? If we can find out where ZZP and Devil's Own gets them maybe we can go straight to the source. As of now I don't think Jeb has a controller for his setup. He can still get everything else put in though and he'll be ready to rock when he gets the controller.
Hey Elff (name? I hate using screen names!), like David said, there's lot's of LNF's out there with stock bottom ends that are doing fine, it's all in the tune and setup of mods. It can be done safely. If you're still on pump gas, E47 alone would be WAY safer. The 5th injector also isn't so much to make more hp, it's to make it safer and more efficiently. There is a ton of injector choices also, what I would recommend for you if you did it is a very small injector for now. Then when you build up or want more power, it's just a matter of throwing in a bigger 5th injector. Jeb's setup is using a different injector than mine, I'll explain why later.
Another thought on the engine stuff... the most likely problem when going bigger hp is the pistons. When they crack ring lands they almost never do any other damage. So think about it this way, if you do end up cracking a piston, you'll have to rebuild the motor with at least new pistons. If you rebuild the motor next winter, you're gonna be replacing the pistons so you eliminate the chance of them breaking. Why take it apart now, or in the winter to reduce your chance of failure when the possible failure is pretty much the same as the rebuild? Did I make any sense just now? lol. Hopefully you get what I mean. Throw some valve springs in it if you haven't already and just keep the boost reasonable in the tune and your bottom end will be fine. Oh and if you have meth, DITCH THE METH!
