I made a appointment days ago to bring my car into the dealership @ 10am and have my case learn done by the afternooon for me to pick it up.. Well it spends 6 hours there and I couldn't get my case learn and have to leave it there over night

I think I'm going to go pick up a scanner in a little bit though.

O-well atleast I'll have it by the weekend for my b-day I guess.

Check the mileage when you pick it up

Seriously just a few minutes and the funny thing is I forgot to check the mileage when I dropped it off; but I have a pretty good idea where it'* at. It is a very large dealership, one of the largest GM dealerships in the country I believe. But I hope I can trust them to be professional and not joy ride in my car.

I'm sure it will be worth it; just this last little stretch is killing me.

On a side note I hit 19í500 today on the Grand Marquis Iíve been driving

I was supposed to have my case learn done by this morning and be called by the dealership. I didnít get it till late afternoon when they neglected to call me so I just stopped in, lol. Luckily they washed the car for me which was pretty dirty when I brought it in. I also noticed my hood wasnít latched (someone must have been admiring the goodies) When I was about to leave my shop I smelled fuel and noticed my rear 3 injectors were leaking. So I went and picked up new o-rings and replaced all the injector o-rings and reseated everything properly which solved my problem. Tomorrow when I have more energy Iím going to put a new fuel filter on.

But Iíve driven 50-60miles since the case learn. Iíve put in $20 of Shell 93 & $25 of Sunoco Cam GT @ $5.39 a/gallon. The amount of power is astounding, that is with it running pig rich (Intense purposely did that till I get my dyno tune I said I was planning on). I checked my fuel pressure & it is 60psi @ idle and 66psi with the vacuum line pulled.

Iíve noticed a slight whine off idle and at first I thought it was my torque converter dying. But it is just whine from my Jenny 5, I thought it was interesting I would start getting some whine with 8psi of vacuum. At WOT Iím seeing 7-8psi of boost with a 3.4Ē on the Gen V with 65 degrees ambient air temp. My oil pressure is a solid 65ish at idle and higher while driving.


Iím tired and hungry time to relax, take care everyone.

Sounds like you are hearing the same whine as I'm hearing with my Gen V.

Amazing you only see 7-8 psi with the same pulley I see 12 psi on. I didn't think a cam would make that much difference vs 1.9 rockers.

Description Duration @ .050" Lobe Lift L.*.A. Centerline

Stock cam L67/32 182/192 .258/.258 115 N/A
Stock with 1.9s 182/192 .490/.490 115 N/A

Intense S1X 210/221 .321/.329 115 111
with 1.6s 210/221 .513/.526 115 111

Not only do I have more lift but more duration, I would attribute the 4 psi difference between our setups mainly due to the duration.


Iím pretty sure my numbers are correct as I got them from 3800pro.

Time for bed, later Paul!

If I can get my transmission in time yes. Otherwise the track will wait till spring and I'm hoping to have some heads by then too .
