Tuning the M90 3.8 V6 a bit..

:pnoid: Sorry to get your hopes up, its a GM 3.8..

0* KR, 19* best timing advance, I'm still playing with the timing tables.. 02s around ~920

.. a run from zero then a run from 20.. for those who don't have skipshift.. you can hear the gas hit the floor and then its in first In both vids I was chirping the tires all the way through first, that's gotta be hurting my acceleration

I feel like it could be faster but I've run a mid 13 so far, at high altitude, going to get to Atco here soon for some runs, its a shame its so warm out

84*, 80% humidity when these videos were done, I know its nothing special but let me know what you think:

It sounds good to me. Looks like it runs like hell.

Your car looks better though

and your exhaust sounds better than mine

Mine .. sounds... so hard to describe... blatty? and raspy until I hit boost... if I'm light on the throttle it sounds horrible - I really need to put a resonator in

Re: Tuning the M90 3.8 V6 a bit..

was out cruising around, ended up 15 minutes from the track so hopped on over

got 4 runs in in about 2 hours then took off..

Got a PB MPH and PB 1/4 mile but I was all over the place, mostly unable to nail my launch, even the 2.0 60' I was spinning through a lot of first, on/off the gas/etc


First run was highest trap
Went from driving into the track to the run within 10 minutes, so basically a hot lap Outside temp 81, humidity 78

R/T ... .389
60' ... 2.222
330 ... 6.312
1/8 ... 9.393<-- Watch this # drop.. guess my launches got better
MPH ... 81.98
1000 ... 11.968
1/4 ... 14.121 (d'oh!)
MPH ... 105.40 <-- best!

Second run:
60 - 2.276
1/8 - 8.995 < better!
MPH - 81.79 < worse??
1/4 13.777 <-- better!
MPH 102.73 <-- worst?? I think I let off the gas before MPH was recorded

Third run:
60' - 2.118
1/8 - 8.970 <-- better yet
MPH - 82.22<-- best
1/4 - 13.697
MPH - 104.15

Followed by a
Fourth run was best 1/4, 30 minute cooldown, Several 9 second cars went before me, I got right in their groove, left at 2300 RPM and rolled into it possible too much, but less spin than the other runs. I can only imagine what slicks would be like, or our cars with RWD.. - Outside temp 76, humidity 79

R/T ... .255
60' ... 2.006 (!)
330 ... 5.648
1/8 ... 8.669 < -- best!
MPH ... 81.95
1000 ... 11.272
1/4 ... 13.463 <-- best
MPH ... 104.39


I know with cooler weather I could see 13.3 or better, maybe even 12s with slicks

0* KR on every single run except one blip into third each time.. under 2*

I wonder what headers/injectors/3.0" pulley would do for me
