Considering getting your product, but have questions

Post by silver2000svt » Tue Sep 04, 2007 2:12 pm

I have a 2000 Lightning but I am running a T76, SCT 2800 draw through, recirculated BOV, built motor, heads, cams turbo set up... Will I be able to choose the turbo and fairly easily manipulate the things I need to?

Also, until I redesign the intake pipe, I need to run off the VE tables at idle and no throttle % when I let off the throttle... I am currently doing that with an XCal II and it solves the stalling problem of the BOV reverbing through the MAF, will that be possible with your tuning packages? Also, what is the difference in the SF and the Delta-Commando packages?

was this a shop tune or do you own the Pro Racer package from SCT?

Shop tune, but the shop gives me access to the tuning file if someone needs to look at it to help

For your setup you really need the Commando. You can start with the base file you have in the truck now and go from there. Your combo and needs go beyond what the SF is designed for. The trick you are using about running speed density and then going to MAF at heavier throttle is a good trick. I had to do the same on a turbo vette project because of the mass air turbulence we were getting and had no way around.....

Other than noise, why did you configure BPV instead of BOV. We have reconfigurable BOV's on our TT Mustang GT and I have considered getting rid of the noise on decel.

With a Draw through setup you have to use a bypass valve because if you were to dump the air post meter it would send a SH*T load of fuel to the engine and possibly stall but blow black smoke for sure. The bypass valve keeps everything behind the mass air meter happy.

I don't think you have to go air to air.

I can say that 800 RWHP is abougt the max of the stock intercooler, but you don't have to use that setup. Nate's Lightning is running amazing, so you might consider doing a swap similar to Nates.

We have a good vendor for tubing and we've made all of that plus exhaust systems perfectly out of premade bends. I'll ask Nate what his name is but it's Dan from hyperformance.com I think. Good guy, and gets stuff right out to me when I've called.
