Default I have a New Bonne!!!

The forecast for the weather has been right on.
Foggy with highs of 45 F and lows of 32 F..........and dry roads.

The time was right

The rain the last few days has washed away the salt and only the main highway is salted due to 0 C temps at night.

But the city streets are dry and clean so the time was right.




I started the Bullet and let it warm up for 5 minutes.
I could smell the header wrap on the crossover exhaust pipe burning off its "new" vapours but a nice steady idle.

Laura came with me......for a ride in the Bonne you dirty minded Bonne lover.


Intake air temp at first held steady at 70 F.
Outside air temp was 42 F
I will keep my references in Farenheit and mph from now on.......that'* my preference anyway. :P


It took 15 minutes of driving at 40 mph before the coolant temp hit 160 F.
It took 22 minutes of similar driving before the transmission temp hit the 130 F minimum where I will begin to put my foot into it.



.....and that I did.



Holy Mother of God.

I have an all new kind of SSEi Bonneville.


All six of those pumping pistons are now so much freer to pump that air in and out of this 3800 force fed engine.


The intake air temp after the SC would climb to 140 F when I hit the loud pedal and accelerate from 30 to 50 mph

I am using that word accelerate loosely.

Very loosely.



Any kind of heavy throttle from slower speeds bring both front tires to a boil with the tach bouncing off the 6200 rpm rev limiter.


The first time I goosed it I watched the KR and saw it spike to 15.

I know, I know....it needed some time to learn.
I drove around for a while longer playing with the scan gauge.

I also played a bit with the water injection.
It was cool to watch how reactive the intake air was to the spray.
Instantly dropping from the normal cruising under vacuum 110 F to 70 F instead of rising to 140 F.

When the weather warms up, the temp differences will be more extreme.



So by the time I was done with the 1 hour cruise, the KR was down to 0 with the 3.4" and intake temps were steady at 110 F with no injection.


Much more to come........

For those that don't understand, the temps Paul is referring to are AFTER the supercharger. He added a gauge. These aren't IAT temps at the filter.

Excellent road report Paul. Glad I could help out with a little of it!
Zilla Motorsports strikes again.

Yes, Bill'* right thanks.

I read my true engine intake air temp after compression at the outlet of the supercharger.

I give much credit to Wren-Zilla Motorsports for the port and polish work done to the Gen V SC with personalized "SilverBullet" L32 adapter plate.

Everything else is 2000SilverBullet Engineered Installations.

Last vid I posted shut down my uploading host site and used up all my bandwidth.

I'll do my best to try.

......if not you will have to come to Oregon this summer for WCBF07 Festivities.
