I can get 110 octane locally but it is leaded and I don't want to have to worry about the O2 sensors. The Torco 108UL is their actual fuel (unleaded) and not the additive which they say is slightly different. You can purchase the fuel in 5 or 55 gallon containers. Before I make a purchase I was hoping that someone on CT has used their fuel.wont do a thing for your car unless you tune to it (can actually hurt performance if tuned to 93 or less). when you tune for race gas, make sure it is something that you can get regularly. check whats available locally
Yea can't have that!! There are hundreds of those all through this forum. Lot's by the complainer.watch out Jay you are asking a question "off topic"
pooldude seems to have it all under control and tuning now
the 168TB is that the new one?Wow....there is a lot of bashing once again and go figure it comes from some of the same people as always. I asked a very simple question and only one person answered the question asked as others decided it was better to ask me "why". Thank you SRT5939 for your input. The bottom line is I'm looking at a 900+ HP build and I highly doubt 93 octane will produce the results I'm looking for. I will be running a 12-15 psi street tune and a 20-22 psi race tune. I'm truly sorry if I offend some of you with my questions but I thought this is what the forum is for. My goal is to have one of the fastest street legal new style challengers in the nation and I sense some bitterness from some members of this forum. I guess you only get "cred" on this sight if you "build" your own car. I've decided to upgrade my SMS SC to the KB 3.6LC running Mr. Norm's 8 rib 7.35 pulley system to include the Mammoth 79x168 Throttle Body and 105# injectors using Mr. Norm's supercharger boost box or WOT box. I'm upgrading the rearend to the 8.8. I'm not running meth but will have an ice box installed. I will be running drag slicks and not drag radials. Any other questions? I do look forward to racing any member of this forum but no, I can't make it to challenger fest. I cannot make it to any event from April - October due to my business operation. I will run the Texas Mile this fall and plan on attending a few other events during the Nov. - Mar. months. Again, I'm sorry if I do not fit your criteria to be a viable member of this forum.
I viewed the results from the last Texas Mile run and HemiSam had a nice top speed. I'm curious to see how much faster he can go and what he has done to increase the speed.Sorry you can't make it. I was hoping to see this thing in action.
You should hit up HemiSam when you hit the mile. I'm going to TX to hang with him during his mile runs in March and I'm sure he'll go back in the fall.
The 168TB is listed on the kenne bell website as the largest available tb for the hemi's but I have no idea how new it is. Thanks for the info with regards to the WOT box. I was a little concerned about running such a large SC without some sort of throttle control to prevent that unwanted or unplanned squirrely takeoff during normal driving. Are you running meth to keep your system cool or are you not having any heat issues? There is a very good chance that myself and a few local guys will be attending the LX Nationals.the 168TB is that the new one?
i run the 150
the 8 rib set up is super nice wait to you see that.
The WOT Box Tim designed and build is also a thing of beauty and works flawlessly, made my car a pleasure to drive again at 14psi on the street.
The WOT Box will cause the boost to read low on the Dnyo but it really is'nt low. Mine showed 10.7 or so boost but really was toping out at 13.9 14 psi.
Arrington has done some of these 3.6 builds already so they should have no problem with yours those guys do nice work.
Come to LX nationals in Nov. at Atco
tune to ms 109 sensor safe and you can make good hp on itI can get 110 octane locally but it is leaded and I don't want to have to worry about the O2 sensors. The Torco 108UL is their actual fuel (unleaded) and not the additive which they say is slightly different. You can purchase the fuel in 5 or 55 gallon containers. Before I make a purchase I was hoping that someone on CT has used their fuel.
Thanks for your insight.
Tim - thanks for the input and without a doubt I have every intention to take AJ's recommendations. I'm simply doing some research on my own with the different fuels out there. I take it that I will need the D2300 (KB's number) for the TB.The 168mm is a cable driven TB only and will only work on a Dodge running a FAST system with a Ford TPS.
20-22 psi on a 3.6 KB will require more than 108 octane.. I personally wouldn't run anything under c116 on that boost level..
I use Q16 because of its fast burn rate. Regular C116 does provide lower EGT's than Q16. But tuned properly Q16 nets more HP and doesn't fuel fool plugs like C116 does.
Running an unleaded fuel at a lower octane on 22 psi isn't a good idea imho..
Aj knows what he is doing, I would let him decide what octane to tune you for based on EGT/ACT temps.
