Default Pete Martini's modified magazines tuner shootout writeup

First, I want to thank Full-Race for inviting me to this event. It has been a long and eventful week for me. I must say that I sure wasn't ready for this!

It all started with the failure of my GT40R. I contacted Geoff at Full-Race about getting my single 60mm wastegate converted into a dual 44mm setup. Everything was going great and on track until I get a call from Geoff inviting me to the super lap battle. This was Sunday night May 18th. Being the optimistic person I am, I accepted. Intake and manifold headers apart, I loaded the car onto a trailer and set off on a 6 hour drive to Arizona at 4:30am.

Arriving at Arizona, I was greeted by the Full-Race staff. There I spent the next three days getting the new up-pipe and reverse mount intercooler installed on my car. Everything was set for a dyno tune of Friday? Friday afternoon rolls around and I drive to UMS for tuning. To my surprise, I see a bunch of other race cars and tuners. What is going on; I think to myself. Before I know it, I am part of Modified's Tuner Shootout! With my car not tuned (previously a 40R with a different intercooler), I was bolted onto the dynapack and off I went. first run (315whp). Oh boy, seconds to make a quick change; done. next run 330whp. I make more changes and the last run yielded 370whp; we're done. done. I stay behind and make some changes after everyone is done and make about 496 with more minor tweaks.

The next day, I go out to get 100 octane fuel from the local gas station; the pump isn't working-91 octane mixed with 100 it is. I return to the track where Mike Speck drives the car on the autocross and absolutely loves it. We realize that we need slicks on the car. Geoff scrambles and gets a set of slicks. We're in business.

We run the quarter mile (I make the first two runs and suck) and Brady makes the last two. We do ok with only 21psi of boost (didn't want to push it ). Mike goes out for the super lap practice session. He does very well but the oil temps are getting high. Geoff and I quickly rearrange the oil cooler as to get more air flow. We make some minor adjustments and were as ready as we are going to get for the super lap session.

Mike goes out and does an amazing job. The car performed great and I couldn't ask for more especially not knowing about the event before hand. Geoff at Full-Race is a master in manifold tuning and that is an understatement. I want to thank him and all the great staff from Full-Race for coming through.

I also wanted to thank Teddy at Mavrik Motorsports in Fullerton for all his support whenever I needed it.
