Default FYREANTís Boosted 2014 C7 on the Dyno for tuning at Late Model Racecraft

This 2014 C7 Stingray was shown some love when owner Anthony Buonanoma, aka FYREANT fully built the motor with forged internals, upgraded valve train with all the trimmings, a stage 3 cam, A&A Corvette YSI blower, long tube headers, meth injection, and a full custom dyno tune here at the shop. Contact us to get your C7 making crazy power like this today!

Hope I am not spoiling the surprise for Anthony but here ya go guys........1016rwhp on 93oct and meth and 1040rwhp with 35%E......

Anthony should be super proud of this build. He built a car and drove it over 13hrs to my shop to be tuned with zero issues on the road. We worked on little things at the shop but nothing major. By the end of the day Friday she was making solid back to back passes over 1000rwhp and then Anthony drove her all the way back to Florida with zero issues. I am sure he will chime in soon....Again, Congrats on a killer car Anthony, I know you will enjoy her!!

Thank you everyone, my C7 and I have been on quite the journey I've taken it through its many build phases over the last 5 years. It's been absolutely rewarding to work on her and change her to be exactly how I want her and to share my experiences with all of you along the way. This stage of the build was no different in that regard, just that this time she took a little bit longer to get ready to go out for our big date so to speak lol.

I really have to tell the tale of my trip to Texas, my experience with Late Model Racecraft and how this all came to be. It Actually starts with CF member C7&7 offering to come to FL to help me pull the motor in the car for the first engine build 2 years ago. Since then I've flown over there to visit, went to TX2K with him, and then flown back over again in August to help him do the conversion of his seats from the GT to Comp seats which we did in the lobby of LMR might I add haha. LMR built Tim's car to the badass monster that it is today and during some of the phases of his build when I was in Texas we made multiple trips down to LMR's shop. So, I'd gotten to meet the team there multiple times and found that they really were just a great group of guys that are just real car guys at heart. This was something I picked up on instantly and is the primary reason I chose to drive my car halfway across the country to have them do the tuning, to give my car that special sauce that, in my opinion, is what truly makes a build like this shine.

I left FL on Monday morning 3/4/19 and got to Houston on the night of 3/5/19. I arrived at the shop on Wednesday morning for my appointment and they were ready to get started. There were a few things that we had some issues with along the way such as belt slip, boost leaks, rubbing fuel lines, all of which we were able to correct pretty easily once identified. My car spent three days, THREE DAYS on the dyno for us to get all the kinks worked out because Steven wouldn't let me leave until the car was right. He kept telling me "dude, you drove all the way from Florida, we're gonna make sure its right for you....". That right there is a quality of service you just cannot buy nowadays. It's also the reason that they are now the only shop I will let touch my car in any way. Because I know whatever they work on, they won't let it leave until its right. So, hats off to them for the exceptional service and for making me feel like I am part of the family at LMR.

Many of you have followed my build threads, my HOW TO guides and I've had the please of helping many of you through PM's on your very own builds. So I'd like to thank all of you for coming on this long ride with me and keeping me inspired and motivated in finishing my build! And also thanks to Cajun and Yve at EdgyVette for their help in procuring many of the parts that made this build possible!

I'm not done with this car yet, next we are gonna try and see if we can set the C7 M7 world record in the 1/4 mile. Hopefully soon at that!

Glad to hear things went well Ant.
Im in the same boat. Did my bottom end, put it back in, drove it for a while, did my top end, drove for a while then did my YSi. Think I'm going to go with FIC injectors and pump. But that will probably be next year. Going to graft a boost controller into the system and pulley it down for now. Get on the boost sooner and cap it off until i update the fuel.

BTW what size pullies are your upper and lower if you don't mind?

I might go one size up on the upper for now since im out of injector.

Going to graft a boost controller into it and cap it at 10 psi untill i get the FIC injectors and pump.
Going to stay on 93 for the time being.

That's f'n impressive dude... good on you for tearing into this new platform.

Question... you work on your car a lot and I assume take the fuse block in the engine bay in/out a lot? Any issues breaking anything on the wire blocks or the fuse block from having to mess with it?

Anthony will probably say the same thing no issues just pull the two right fuse blocks out first (use screwdriver on tab then slide right), then pull left three fuse blocks out (using screwdriver to push tab in and slide left out of assembly). Then you can move the right two out of the way and snake out the lower assembly. It's quite easy once you get the hang if it I have had mine out 5 times in the last week alone doing plug swaps and checking my Holley secondary fuel pump wiring. I wouldn't event try messing with plugs or wires or hell anything in that area until I took that fuse block out.

Thanks! I have the DSX Auxiliary low side system, though the pump is having a hard time at my power level. I believe its rated for up to 850hp not 1040 like I have. DSX is working on a larger pump option for us higher HP guys which I'll be moving to once released so that I can run more E. ETA on that is sometime in the next 30-60 likely from what I have heard.

Biggest thing to remember is when you pull the lug for the power cable, use an impact, do NOT use hand tools. If you do you will break the lug off the fuse block. I'm on my second fuse block at this point.

Actually, believe it or not I avoid taking the fuse block out at all costs when I can. If I am pulling the motor I remove it, but for plugs and wires I leave the whole fuse block in there. I have small hands so I can still do all the plugs and wires with the fuse block in there in under 45 minutes.
