85MCSS
All Stock 2006 LS2 w/ the exception of the intercooled Callaway MP112 on top
6 PSI (3.2" pulley)
490/490 RW
Installed blower at 24K, Now at 30K
91 Octane (pump gas w/Ethanol)
M6 T-56
Only other mods are Corsa Touring Axle-back, K&N, Nitto Invos, RKSport hood, & ED Wright tune (& Maggie kit B.A.P.)
I daily drive my car when the weather is clear and make a trip or so a month to Mexico to play with the stang bangers.

Overall, its been a great car and a ton of fun with the blower! I couldnt imagine having a stock vette again! Hopefully it will get some headers and a mild cam sometime. More importantly, I'd like to get some suspension parts/axles/tires to be able to efficiently put the power down at the track before going bigger. I could get a consistent 12.70 out of the car when it was stock (it has about 6 passes on it). Still have not made it to the track with the Maggie.

any of you guys running the Aeromotive in-tank setups ... I currently have the A1000setup and thinking about switching to the Eliminator setup with some larger injectors ,so I can switch to e85 and up the boost a little bit have the electronic controller but worried that it wont be quite enough power for the eliminator and burn it up but just a little further than the A1000 could handle

at 635whp now on 8-9lbs on 91-90 pump tune ... wanting to push the boost up 11-12 on e85

If you drop an eliminator pump in your car look at the dsx fuel pump controller, it'll keep the pump from burning up.

LS2 all stock. Installed Eforce at around 15k miles and ran it until about 30k with about 600 rwhp and 12 lbs of boost. No problems at all during that time.

Now LME LS402 short block, WCCH 245 heads, cam, etc. About 3000 miles now at 724 RWHP. No issues to date.

- What engine? - LS3 Totally stock
- Miles on the car at install - 1500

- If the engine was hurt, what failed? - Engine has been perfect so far. killed 2 transmissions and a set of cats tho.

- Mod list - unrestricted ECS Novi 1500. Meth. ARH 1 7/8s with catted X pipe. ECS stage 1 fuel system. Yank 2800. 3.42s.

I'm thinking that my transmission issues had a lot more to do with failed cats than with the power the car makes.

That dyno was on 100 octane and I run it that way most of the time. I do have a 91 tune for it as well. No meth.

What a great sticky thread for those people who have gone FI and those on the fence about going FI on their c6. It's especially helpful for those who daily drive their c6. Thanks for starting this thread!
