I really don't know what I'm shooting for. I don't think I want more than that, that's for sure. I was really hoping for 750-800 at the tire for HP and TQ. Anything over that would just be a bonus.

The D1 just couldn't muster anything over 3K... Wish the tech guys would have told me that instead of saying, "Yeah, it should work". Oh well. Live and learn. Picked up the F1R yesterday and got some time in the shop to mock it up. Turns out if it's going to work, it needs to be "reclocked," so it's going back to ProCharger today. Guess they don't want you opening their units. Of course all my spacers needed to be changed as well. There goes all that time I spent mocking stuff up outside the vehicle!

Check out the difference in size though. No wonder nothing fits. Sure hope this new one can keep up with the 572.

Got a couple dyno numbers for you!

The car made 831ft lbs of TQ at 3000 rpm and 50% throttle. Unfortunately, it was already making 15lbs of boost, which is way too much. So, we switched pulleys and went to a much bigger one.

It then made 787ft lbs of TQ and 600HP. Unfortunately, it blew the tires off the rollers around 5000 rpm so I don't even have a real HP number. The graph was climbing though, so it would have definitely made more HP. Good news is we're only making 7lbs of boost, and it's an ultra conservative tune. Shouldn't have any problems and it's not living on the edge.

This thing is an absolute monster..... So much fun.

Front and rear:
On the rear, any particular reasoning or benefit placing the calipers to the front of the axle instead of behind? I know there's multiple options on the backing plate, park brake mount. Asking because I just installed the same setup but I placed the caliper behind the axle like the front setup. (I see you have the Detroit Speed rear sway bar also, sweet!)

No particular reason. I wish I could remember exactly why I did it that way. I know I wanted to mount them toward the rear to match the front, but it didn't work out. I'm sure it hit something, or the e-brake cable didn't work. I know BAER doesn't specify any specific mounting position, and I know it stops HARD, so I guess that's good!

Yeah, I never had a rear sway bar growing up in this car and was amazed at how much it tightened everything up!

ok cool, I didn't think there was a difference, and Baer could do a better job with instructions. Thanks.

I think there is a little bit of sound that comes out... I asked the sales guy at SEMA last year and he told me they should be air tight though. He said I needed to clean them with liquid wrench (which is in the instructions) from time to time.

However, right before Power Tour, I switched out the exhaust in the photo above for stainless, I didn't have time to weld them back in, so I really haven't had a chance to test that out. Hoping to get some time in the next few weeks.

New gas tank:
- Ricks Stainless tank
- 23.5 gallons
- Notched corners to clear exhaust
- Dual Cadillac CTS-V Fuel Pump Assemblies (2 pumps per assembly)
- Dual Corner pick-ups for each assembly feed the main bucket. So even with 1 Gallon in the tank and cornering, it will not starve for fuel.

Very nice. Those pumps should be able to supply enough fuel huh?
I like the tail pipes too. That's the way I want mine to be routed. By the looks of it, it was very labor intense.
