Clark can tune HPTuners?

meh, I'll stick w/ my own tuning, it's cheaper for me, and Doug talks less when I'm tuning my own @!#$. Once I find a clutch I'll be shooting for 500hp to the wheels and 11's.

Quick question......I have the RK sport underdrive pulley. I have thrown my 4th belt. I get a high pitched squeel and then the belt flys off shredded or it breaks. I have replaced the tensioner pulley, no luck. Could it be the belt tensioner unit itself?

Thanks in advance

could be your tensioner assembly brian. im still around. i actually was driving next to you a few weeks ago on the 215 trying to get your attention. i was in a silver 04 with tinted windows. exhaust and such. so where ya been man? its been a while. turbo actually moved to california. he got transfered there. but definatly if your gonna throw the turbo back on hook it up with spyhunter (robert) you have the hahn kit right? he will tune ya man. he's a cool guy. and very trustworthy (he drives a 12sec grand-am) so he knows what hes talking about. keep in contact man. for track nights and maybe we can get a meet going?

I like to spend my time on www.independantracing.com....i am a show team member of that car club. Well, i've got to go. Talk to you fellas later!

Oh, and he has a Haas turbo system...i was going to get one, but they went out of business and shut down their website.

I would really really like that to happen. We'll just have to find out. I have a tank full of C16 and another 5 gallon drum at home waiting to be abused.

I'm not exactly sure when I'll be back around the vegas area. My wife and kids are going to Texas in early June, and then I am going to ALS (airman leadership school) to learn how to "be a leader"....it lasts about 6 weeks, and then i am probably going to be flying to Hawaii to go visit my brother, then going to texas to pick up my family, and then head back this way. The problem with that, is that I won't have my car...I'll be driving my wife's car back. Maybe i can talk my wife into letting me go to Vegas sometime in the fall....keep our fingers crossed!!!

Oh, and does anyone know about car audio stuff? (I don't want to get flamed...that's why I'm not posting this in the A/V section)...anyways, I have my amp hooked up to my ***NEW*** headunit, and it has power and everything, but nothing is coming out of my subs. I'm not really an "electronics guy", so any input??
(another reason this is such a big deal for me)


***NEW*** = hint of upcoming mods...teaser pics will follow tomorrow (maybe). I'm almost finished installing it all...the unveiling will come after I get everything to work properly.

make sure your rca cables are hooked up and not pinched anywhere turbo. i know i had a set of my rca's at one point hooked up but pinched and nothing would come out of my subs. also make sure if your headunit has a subwoofer frequency level on it that its turned up and not off.

OK guys and gals if your lurking. I have replaced my belt tensioner $90.00. Reinstalled a new gatorback belt. Ran good for two days and then bam I threw my 5th belt. What the %^%#$^@$#^%$^*^%*%&* is happening. the belts are 16.99 and they quit givivng me new ones for free. Everthing seems aligned perfect. I believe the sqeeling is coming from the a/c unit though. Could the gator back belt be causing this? I did not throw belts with a standard 5 groove belt, but Good year added a 37.5%slice across the belt> They say it make the belt run cooler.

Any suggestions

Thanks,

Brian

Yes Spy, I changed the tensioner, it has maybe 35,000 on the car. The a/c seems tight just sounds like it might be the ac bearings. This cant throw a belt cause the ac pulley is tight, no abnormal side to side movement.

Hey spy how much for a tune up?

I've got my brand new wideband O2 sensor too. How much to hook my turbo back up. I still have all the electrical solenoids for the nitrous too.
