easy kill. what are the stats on the Camaro? and is that longboarders car again?

also - the thread title says his car is 650, but the description says its a 625. reality is its neither. it's a 625 kit on a 650 pulley, with 625 software using race/91 blend. until he gets the software, his car is still putting down 625 numbers. calling it a 650 is a misnomer. longboarder correct me if I'm wrong here.

either way his car is putting down stellar numbers. props adam

That Camaro loses a lot of ground on shifts. DCT FTW.

Hi esquire I have a 92mm pulley, where the standard 625 91 octane kit comes with the 96mm pulley.

The 92mm pulley actually made LESS RWHP than the 96mm pulley on the dyno, so I'm going to switch back to the 96mm pulley. You are correct in that it is the software that controls the power, not the pulley.

The 650 kit uses an entirely different pulley system.

This Camaro didn't seem to be running 100%. I don't know why. It was tuned in Vegas (~ 3,000 ft elevation) and maybe was running a tad rich. Was boosting around 7psi from the Vortech and it should have walked me.

Good explanation. Any chance your injectors might also be a limiting factor?

I like these races vs Camaros, I don't understand how an Mt could be faster than a DCT, when the M car have a little more power: seen other races too and Camaro was faster, won with half a car !
This was a great win by the way!
