Is your Corvette lowered, or is it still standard ride height? Just wondering whether, if I installed wider fenders like yours, my 355-30 with 19 '' rims would fit on a lowered car (mine was lowered by previous owner) or, if not, whether the 355 might fit on a standard ride height car.

started tuning finally, hard to abort the session short, as my balancer backed out, and lodged against the steering rack. so had to call it quits for the day
It have a 3psi springs in the gates. it's getting some boost creep I may have to address. as It was creeping to 7psi, I figure the 44mm gates should be sufficient with 3psi springs, But it's also recirculated into the downpies since I have the Gen 1 kit, the newer kits have the gates venting to atmosphere. I'm assuming that's why. I'll see how it does on the street, I really want to pull out as much power as a I can, so the car is very flexible. but power wise is it in the 660-670 range, which seems about standard
The blue line is with C02 on the gates, looks like it was about to party. but It hit the 10psi safety boost cut.
anyway, I'll fix it, it'll probably be street tuned from here. It's not dialed in, pretty rough draft at this point, but here's a lil something so the thread has some kind of resolution

it's not, I didn't think it was necessary being a turbo car. I assembled it on an engine stand. I'm assuming I just didn't torque it all the way and got distracted.

You were having boost creep with CO2 on the back side of the gate or was that just with the 3lb springs in it?

just on spring, but could be the nature of the beast with how the plumbing is setup, with the C02 off, there's no pressure ontop of the gates. so the boost comes in lazy and centrifugal like as my log shows.
which can work in my favor, since my goal here is to work on the street and bring the power in later.

no, C02/boost controller was turned on, but ignition cut was at set at 10psi

I'm working on making my own twin turbo setup and I am using the same hinson engine mounts and C6 oil pan. When I have the front tires at full rebound, hanging when jacked, I notice that the leaf is touching the oil pan. Was coil over required for this setup or was it just coincidence that you did this?

Coincidence, I always had coilovers.
