My experiment to push the HEATON to it's limit has proven to be quite successful.  Today was a great barometer to see how the recent tuning session translated into reduced ETs. For those that don't know, here is my list of mods:

JLP shortblock/Stage Three Comp Cams/TEA CNC heads/larger SS valves
50lb injectors
Extrude Hone upper intake
Extrude Hone lower intake
Accufab Tbody
Kooks L/T's with cats
Stiegemeier Ported HEATON
elec fan
Plasma Booster
C&L intake with JLP ram air system
Beru plugs
Walbro's
MAF extender
SCT Tuning ;)
2400 stall FT billet converter
FTVB
15lbs boost (due to high flow heads and HEATON porting)

The following runs were recorded at MIR track rental 3/18/05, 60 degree F

11.443 @ 118.40      10:17 A.M.
11.339 @ 118.75      10:22 A.M. (hotlap)
11.359 @ 119.54      11:41 A.M.
11.264 @ 119.37      11:52 A.M. (hotlap)
11.198 @ 119.93        1:03 P.M.
11.264 @ 118.95        1:13 P.M. (hotlap) 

I have been racing my L for 4 years now and this is the first time I can ever remember running such strong hotlap numbers.  The HEATON usually falls off considerably when hot, and to better the ETs with no appreciable difference in 60' time is unheard of.  Props must be given to Bob Stiegemeier, who spent considerable time and effort to add additional clearance and work his magic on the HEATON.  His expertise and knowledge regarding maximizing the potential of this stock blower are unparalleled.  Bob is eager to help the BTJ pursuit vehicle achieve even better ETs and I appreciate his support of my goals.

Special thanks should also be provided  to JJ of Woodbine Motorsports.  I was one of JJ's first customers, and have been an ardent supporter since meeting him in late 2001.  He made a wise decision to align himself with JLP in 2003, and has continued to provide excellent customer service and produce results at the track on a consistent basis.  My L is only a Cecil Mod away from achieving my next goal.   :D

Those are some great times. I don't like the Eaton much for the reasons you stated but seems like if modified by a good shop it can perform.

I have held off on a KB for a number of reasons.
1.  Maximizing the HEATON's potential
2.  Slowly gaining valuable experience running quicker ET's and improving my driving abilities
3.  Everybody and his cousin has a KB, I wanted to be a bit different
4.  Make JJ earn his money  :)


So far I have hit on all cylinders.

Rob,

I love the site and always view it when online.  I just haven't much time to do so with work and the new SON.  Junior is doing great and going to be a BIG BOY.  [smilie=eek4.gif]

My only advice is to keep heading in the same direction you have been the last several months.  Vendors can provide valuable resources (cash) to keep the site rolling, just don't let them RUN the site and you'll be a very successful ENTHUSIAST-based site.  See you all at Cecil real soon.

BTJ,

Congrats on the #s. you have way more patience then me. I wanted a 10 so bad I would have built a slingshot at the line if they allowed. LOL

BTW- EXCELLENT choice on the future purchase of the RACETESTED system. I just got mine and its top notch.

BTJ,

Its been my pleasure to help you achieve your goals and this goal is only 2 tenths away from being reality.

Cecil and a little more tweaking of your shift points and you will be knocking on the door that nobody has gone thru yet with similar combinations.

Trying to get your stock trans to handle all that power is the tricky part, but it can and will be done.

Steig did a great port job!!!!

Maybe at SSOTN, two records will be set. :shock: :shock:
