Running 29.51 if memory serves me right. It includes LSPI fixes, yes.

OK, I think 29.5X is the latest. I'll report back after they check my logs and tweak some things.

I believe the last digit are variations of the same tune, to better suit your engine. I've gone through 29.50 to 29.53. still working to eliminate some low speed knocking.

So as you will recall I posted some logs questioning my ideal and the pressure in the fuel system.

After the tuner looked at another log, it appears all is ok!

Today I drove it a little and after noticed a little bit of grease coming out of the Edelbrock-supplied pulley that is directly to the left of the super charger pulley. Is that normal, or does that indicate a failure?

Good to hear on the fuel pressure... Clearly an idler shouldn't be weeping grease if that's where it came from.. if the grease gets on the belt.. you could slip the belt. I'd clean it and watch it.. If it clearly continues to lose grease, I'd call Edelbrock and see if they can get you another one. I had an issue with this part of the install myself. Edelbrock had the wrong size washer (???) .. It's only 22 ft lbs but no way I was even gonna get that with the smaller washer that actually started to press through the idler shaft.. so I had to dig through my stuff and glad I had something that would work. (I didn't use the wrong one or misplace it in the kit. I went through every piece of hardware and the one I used was the washer provided. It was wrong.. but you don't want to get it too tight so if you were trying to get to 22 ft/lbs and the washer was giving you could overtighten that bolt and I could see that cause the bearing to possibly get damaged. But clean and watch it.. it could be a new install thing.. although mine hasn't wept any.

Thanks. Did what you suggested... wiped it down and will watch it.

Edelbrock is reviewing it now.

The washer issue was something a few people experienced... I believe the washer was smaller and thinner. I was concerned so I asked tech support before my install. Based on my discussions with them I have no worries that I had the wrong washer. They said it's outer diameter was too small for the pulley, so it wouldn't work at all. Mine didn't fit that description.

Yeap that was it. I had to find one a little bigger and a little thicker gauge. But to add, I looked at my pulley and wiped it after I was through working with DT yesterday while I was continuing to inspect the car after drives.. and I'll say I did notice a tiny weep of grease, wasn't much but enough to say there was a little bit. Certainly not like your picture showed.

I have completely finished with DT I believe. Fairly satisified with the E tuning from Delicious Tuning.. The car is running great. I estimate they're going to get you 80-90% if not more to the car's potential. I use their dbox .. logs looked good . There's nothing special about my tune setup I didn't even get Race Rom features at this time. Car feels like what most have described as having a bigger engine that has power everywhere .. 1st gear practically useless except for getting rolling. But there is power everywhere now. No dip less your trying to get on it below 3k rpm in the wrong (too high gear, big no no in general for this car). It doesn't surprise you or overwhelm you.. you feel it and it can get you too fast sneaky like. I probably would like to review the Edelbrok SC kit and highlight the steps that were an issue with maybe personal suggestions on steps.. but that's probably some copyright issue idk, we'll see. But I think that would help some people in the future. Or they can all wing it like we did.. not that hard except some spots

I too plan to make a post highlighting my thoughts on install. And I have another video coming showing how I fixed my banjo bolt. It's all about helping people, I see no issues with you doing similar.

Just starting the tuning process here. About to get my first log with a WOT run to redline, so we will see my impressions...
