    At the end of the day, Brock is the only guy that I have seen from both forums who publicly acknowledges the issue. For now, the ST haters are hating but at the end of the day, I think they are going to have the last laugh. I just find it hard to believe that Shiv wasn't experiencing these same issues before he released the kit.

    It will get fixed. The hate is really in how Vishnu/Shiv portrayed this I'm surprised more people aren't outraged. It's fine to have issues especially at this level, expected really.

    yes!!!! dont hate on the hoodscoop it wasn't finished (not even close), on a second hood, and is fully functional. lol It was going to be a pro-stock "round" hoodscoop, but I couldn't find one fast enough for fixx.


    And it stood out lol

    Wait, I can blame Vishnu for killing butterflies now? This thread just keeps getting better.

    Firstly, I assume that shiv is dilligent enoguh to ensure your injectors are coded correctly. Second obviously is plugs. Does the ST kit come with the NGK 5992s as well? Could be getting blowout with old plugs at that power level. Measured coil resistance? What codes are paired with the misfire code?

    Yes replaced injectors and coils, coded injectors as well. I replaced all my plugs (2nd set of NGKs, just to be sure).

    Are these true misfires or misdetection of misfires? Are these the same that Dzenno and Big Tom had?

    The odd thing is that the misfire is ALWAYS either cylinder 4 or 6 or both. It has never been any other cylinder. This is the same on all 3 of our cars.

    Very possible. It seems very similar to the issues that they had.

    That's just weird but if it's the same on all 3 you can likely rule out some weird mechanical issue from the cars as the chances of it causing the same misfires on the same cylinders would point more towards the tuning I would think.

    Do the cars all have the same transmission?

    I will most likely be doing a private rental on Dec 30th. There will only be about 5 or so cars there, so I'll get plenty of passes. I expect this issue to be resolved before then. I'll have the coil overs on before then and should have a new clutch in. Hopefully I'll have the driveline/LSD upgrades in before then, but that may be tough.

    Then we can get a good sample of what the car can do. I'm betting right now that I trap at least 130.

    Could it be an msd80 vs 81 type of issue? Probably not, but are you guys all on the same ecu version/software etc?

    I want to go! I meant to text you to see how the car was, but have been swamped. Hope you get it all resolved soon, as I still need a ride!

    I don't think so. I have MSD80. JMARS' car is a 2010 so it probably has MSD81. I'm not sure about the other one.
