Took my Z to a dyno shop today (2/4/2010). Z was stock with about 1350 miles. 2 pulls on both DynoJet and Dyno Dynamics. I will have the DynoJet emailed to me in SAE form but here are the pics from the sheet and computer.

Nice one TARD! LOL I'm gonna love talking to you on here because of your name.

BAD NEWS. Right after we installed the GTM Oil Cooler I was driving on the freeway and I let it warm up to 180 F. Well it stayed there really well. BUT the AN fitting exploded on the freeway when I brought it up redline! Oil everywhere. The $80 I spent on oil all over the 805 S on the last exit before Mexico. I am not quite sure what exactly happened but from the looks of it from the above the engine, the hose section above the AN fitting exploded. Oil all over my engine compartment. Not too happy about this but not exactly irate. I really really hope I didn't damage any internals since I didn't notice the smoke comming out the exhaust right away. I shoulda bought that dumb vette lol


Right there where its circled the hose basically mushroomed. I cant think of anything you could do wrong with plumbing since all you is connect it. The hoses and core were all really well connected and tight. The really crappy thing is that right after we installed it, I drove it around until it reached optimum operating temp then redlined the **** out of the car for quite a while. No issues. Oil temp was held well at around 190-200. Then as I was going back home I decided to take a longer route on the freeway and see how well the oil cooler would keep the temp down on the freeway. And thats basically when it exploded and the pressure dropped, smoke everywhere. Not good. Supprisingly I am not as pissed as I thought I would be. But if anything is damaged internally I dont even think I will have the dealer fix it. Honestly this might be a good thing. I mean I did want that dumb vette grand sport lol

Well I uninstalled the oil cooler and refilled the oil everything seems to be ok. The entire car is a MESS. I cant even do any kind of pressure wash until wednesday. The car produces smoke from all oil in hot places. Its rediculous. I am uploading the pics on photoshop right now and later tonight I will take more pics of the oil cooler. From what it looks like the hose ending is threaded and connected to the AN fitting by the braided steel and the thread. I just dont understand why they didnt burst while I was driving the car hard compared to the freeway driving when it did burst. Pics should be up shortly.

Here are the pics. There is oil everywhere! Its all over the passenger side of the car along with the rear of the car but the camera couldnt really pic it up that well and I didnt want to wipe it around to allow it to pick it up.

Prob not since the belly pan is below that spot!

no I had the platic tray installed when I test drove it for the first time. I think that VQ pump is probably just a beast. either way its a love hate relationship with this car now.

I will have a part out once I can clean the core. Unless a few companies can cancel some of my orders since they are on hold it will have quite a bit of stuff including brand new, un installed FI cat back and the long tube headers when I get them in April or somewhere around there. I will uninstall stillen intakes probably this week. I have only had em on the car for a day, well for like 10 miles lol The Setrab Core (which performed awesome by the way) will be on there too if anyone wants it. It has about 8 miles of use. If the pulleys cant be cancelled they will be on there and the magnetic oil filter cover and drain plug.
