Wondering if anyone else views Cleetus McFarland's videos on YT. Presently watching them build their auction Corvette using mostly junkyard LS engines and blowing-up a few along the way.

Yep, he just upgraded the turbo, and is dealing with turbo lag. He's hoping a bump box might correct it. I think he needs bigger manifolds and pipes.

Imo, it's just way way too much turbo for that motor. Its rolling over on top not hitting a wall, I think it was just at the limit of the cam/heads at this point. He's using 3 inch pipe, the velocity through it helps with spool too. You could up it to 4 or something with shorties but... I honestly don't think it's going to help too much.

It's cool watching him mess with ruby, hes doing the leg work that everyone else did for Leroy. That's cool to watch.

They just dyno'd Ruby to over 1000 hp without blowing, yeah pretty cool...

It's amazing what a set of mains will do for longevity.

Yeah, I've been watching just for shits and giggles. Only he can pull a JY engine thinking it's a 5.3 and turns out to be a 4.8 and still goes with it. I would have held out for a 6.0. All just for fun.
