For the record Carroll and I had some great times and not so great times, I liken it all great relationships. You love, admire, fight, make up. He was a mentor, He was a father but most of all he was someone I admired to the end. I wish him peace and rest, and I am sure he is up in Heaven causing trouble already!

By the way paul I will say this, you said you spoke to sharon and you didn't feel helped. then an escalation call was in order posting on the site right away is not fair eitheror taking cheap shots. that is uncalled for , please watch your posting.
Amy, yes, I was pissed at Sharon as all she had to offer me was an excuse that my order was among a large stack on her desk and that she was not getting any response from SPP so I would just have to wait like everyone else. I did not get any confidence that it was a priority or much of a concern when I spoke to her. There was no "cheap shot" (everything I said was true and accurate) and the last time I checked we lived in the USA where we have freedom of speach so your request for me to "watch your posting" is way out of line. As I've said before I'm a loyal Shelby enthusiast and want to see you all do well so I get disappointed when the brand is let down by poor performance and excuses. So, rather than chastise me, you should be looking into the problem and communicating what is going on with the fix to everyone who is waiting for stuff. That's what a good "brand embassador" would do. Look for the best in class and strive for it (not just in products/cars but in customer service too)!

If so, here is what you need to do-
If you have a customer service question, call Gary Patterson, who has ALWAYS been VP of Sales and Marketing, Jer, who is VP of SPP, any registrar for questions or concerns of the registry, or for events, any one of your TS regional directors. (Who will all be more than happy to address)
If Roger is still an employee (which by what I have read, he is) but not in Vegas currently, what reason would anyone but the parties concerned have to share that? If he is not, what business is it of anyone who is not working for SA or a shareholder of the company, in which case, they know who to contact for clarification or business needs.
Short of a scandal in the likes of Penn State, I see no reason to be demanding information that is not public. I think Jer answered the question to the extent that it needed to be answered.
Why the drama? Seems pretty simple and clean cut to me.

The wait is now over!
First off, I have to apologize for me taking forever to finally get to compile all this! I have been swamped with school, work and life haha. Now I seriously had hours and hours of footage, It was really a challenge to narrow it down to a mere 5 minutes. While doing this is I kept in mind that I wanted to still show sort of all the fun we had here!
I hope you enjoy it!

I just hit the plus on yours... Does that mean I like?
Posted Dustoff on 15 February 2010 - 04:43 AM
Guys you can believe whatever you want. it really doesnt matter to us.
This test is a nothing but BS.
You want to beleive it go right ahead.
Testing from plenty of other well know places paint a completly different story. (some even on this site just do a search)
We have hundres of dyno pulls/track testing and data taken from the past 1.5 years and absolutly know this data is BS.
And your post is exactly what I expected.... The test is not BS because I certaily wouldn't waste 10 hours of my life producing BS results, I had many other things I could of done on January 26th to make 15+ Dyno Pulls on my own car. Now in your world yes the test is BS because you think I am Bias towards KB or Whipple or whoever. My loyalty lies with the truth of the results. I am sure the test could be done differently and different results gained but in the timeframe I had and the individual and shop I used this is what I have produced. I don't think its a negative for your Throttle Body one bit. For it to even come close or near the same results as the other to units, I think speaks volumes of it design. It obviously works very well on many cars and obviously from a drivibility standpoint it shines ! However I prefer the Twin 75mm on my Shelby as that is what came with the Kenne Bell kit and I like the way it drives and performs.
From a pure business perspective you could use the thread to your advantage and come off with a much more postive note. I will say right now that I still recommend the L&M TB quite a bit. It definately has its place among the TB crowd. But when you make negative posts that your only intent is to discredit my work and test I find it difficult to support you as a company owner which in turn hurts sales... so think about that or don't. If anyone could careless about the results its me... I paid for the Dyno out of my own pocket, I got no compensation from anyone. You were both invited to the Dyno facility I used , I do understand schedules and life so not being able to attend is understood but you were invited to observe.
And if you want to boil it down to the "rubber meeting the road" Why are the fastest GT500s on the planet not running a L&M TB ? I do understand there are some Cobra Jets running them that is great..... I really can't answer the question ... Can anyone ?
Ted in Canada - TVS 9.80s @ 140 upper pulley only ......monoblade last time I checked...
Andy S. 2008 KB car multiple 10.0s @ 141+
Evolution Performance...... KB and Whipple combos running 9s and even 8s on a KB race car with KB Throttle
Lethal Performance....... 4L Whipple Monoblade 9.60 @ 147 21lbs with Slicks and much left on the table...
Chris H. 9.60 @ 146 3.4 whipple monoblade 6 Speed Drag Radial....
Karls East Coast Speed .. Mid 9s KB Car ...... 6 Speed !
I am sure there are more and I am sure there are some very fast times with the L&M TBs that I just have not seen posted.
My point being that I am not Bias towards one or other..... Give me Break I tune both Evolutions Performance and Lethal Performance need I say more.........
These are my results noone elses...... Take it or leave it. Have a great day I am out of here.

Every possible consideration was given to provide accurate data and repeatable tests.
These tests were performed by me, Jon Lund, on my own GT500 with a KB Stage 3, 3.25 Upper Pulley and 10% OD Lower and 1 7/8th’s Long Tube Headers on 104 Octane Unleaded Race Gas along with an HPX Sensor in the KB MAF Housing versus a Stock MAF with a MAFia on Position 3. The car is set up to make 19 lbs. of boost. Bare in mind that a car with long tubes will make less boost due to the free flowing nature of the exhaust versus a car with stock manifolds.
Here is a review of the data logs for Peak IAT1 and IAT2 Temperatures, HP, TQ, Boost and MAF counts.
The first pull was with the car configured as a KB Stage 3 with the aforementioned setup listed above.
Average of 3 KB Stage 3 Pulls to 6100 RPM , 20 degrees peak WOT Timing- 6100 RPM test - 5minute cool down between pulls
HP TQ Boost MAF Count Spark IAT1 IAT2
Pull 1 677 620 17.9 768.2 20 81.8 112.3
Pull 2 671 612 17.7 763.2 20 80.6 113.1
Pull 3 664 610 17.6 765.2 20 81.0 113.8
Average of 3 KB Stage 3-L&M TB Stock Intake Tube Pulls to 6100 RPM , 20 degrees peak WOT Timing - 6100 RPM test - 5 minute cool down between pulls
HP TQ Boost MAF Count Spark IAT1 IAT2
Pull 1 665 614 17.3 757.3 20 73.3 115.3
Pull 2 662 613 17.1 752.2 20 74.8 109.9
Pull 3 660 610 17.1 752.8 20 79.1 112.0
Note: The lower Boost vs. the Twin 75mm above, this is due to swapping from the Ford GT Tube to the Stock Intake. Thus restricting Flow to the L&M.
C&L CAI - MAFia 2 L&M Throttle Body
HP TQ Boost MAF Count Spark IAT1 IAT2
Pull 1 676 603 18.3 910 20 82.2 117.2 6400 RPM test
Pull 2 686 614 18.0 933 22 100 115.2 6600 RPM test
C&L CAI - MAFia 2 Whipple Mono blade Throttle Body
HP TQ Boost MAF Count Spark IAT1 IAT2
Pull 1 698 629 18.6 928 20 93.7 111.3 6400 RPM test
Pull 2 709 625 18.9 933 22 97.7 110.6 6600 RPM test
Both C&L Intake tests were used due the restrictive nature of the stock Intake Tube. C&L by design alone is less restrictive than the Stock Tube and that was proven with just the swap and seeing the Boost increase with the L&M Throttle at 6100. Note the Boost Difference from the mono blade vs. the L&M comparing the Dyno Graphs and Data above. The conclusion is that the throttle body is the restriction in this test when compared to the mono blade.
Repeatability Test for the Kenne Bell Stage 3 and Kenne Bell Twin 75mm TB (End of day Repeatability Test)
HP TQ Boost MAF Count Spark IAT1 IAT2
Pull 1 671 616 17.7 766 20 78.0 110.7 6100 RPM test
Pull 2 701 613 19.0 774 20 84.1 116.7 Same tune as Pull 1 & and the test above, 5 minute cool down & pull to 6600 RPM 30 HP gain by raising RPM sample 500.
Pull 3 705 616 18.9 778 22 78.2 119.5 Same Tune added 2 degrees timing, 5 minute cooldown
The only way to compare Load % and MAF counts is using the exact same scale and MAF curve and intake, as I did above with the C&L unit and inital KB Stage 3.
As you can see in the data the lower MAF counts with a very high range HPX sensor -vs- the C&L with MAFia on 2 results in completely different MAF curves and different scales. Boost being repeated the same.
During testing we used 2 air fuel meters on all dyno pulls. Subsequently A/F measurement was within 1% on every dyno pull with A/F being between 11.66 and 11.75. We used oil temp monitoring thru the dipstick on a calibrated fluke, ECT, CHT, IAT1 and IAT2 logging to obtain repeatable results.
The attached dyno sheet overlays are in .jpg format and the above peak averages. All the Temps and MAF counts were at the Top of each Pull at the RPM sample of 6100, 6400 or 6600.
Load Based dyno numbers are typically different than a non-loaded based Dynojet. I used a MD 1100 for the above testing. We specified load based on the Shelby weight and HP @ 50mph. Doesn't really matter as all I was testing and logging was average peak HP number differences. The car was strapped down and did not move for nearly 8 hours and nothing was changed in the tune except for additional 2 degrees of timing for the 6600 RPM pulls.
In closing, the L&M throttle body is a nice piece and a lot of attention to detail has been put into the design. To date I have tuned at least 100 GT500’s or more with the L&M throttle body. It does require minimal changes in the tune in order to operate and function properly. For a lower boost car with a stock blower the L&M is a good throttle body alternative versus the stock throttle body from Ford. On cars with lower boost an increase in horsepower of around 10 RWHP is the average.
With larger Twin Screw superchargers the peak power range is in the higher RPM band as the above testing clearly shows how boost increases and horsepower coincides with that boost. Higher RPM twin screw supercharged vehicles will not make as much power with an L&M Throttle Body because of its small size and restrictive air flow in the higher RPM range. It does not out flow a Whipple Mono Blade Throttle Body nor does it outflow a Kenne Bell Twin 75 MM Throttle Body.

My wife and neighbors ask why I have a car cover on my car in the garage.
Every time I drive down a road where sprinklers have been running and the road is wet I panic and look for a place to quickly get off that road.

Team Shelby – May 11, 2012 – Carroll Shelby International, Inc., announced today that Carroll Hall Shelby, a man whose vision for performance transformed the automobile industry, has died at age 89. Mr. Shelby passed away yesterday at Baylor Hospital in Dallas. The cause of death was not disclosed.
Born on Jan. 11, 1923, Carroll Shelby was one of America’s greatest success stories. Championship-winning racecar driver, “flying sergeant” wartime pilot, philanthropist, entrepreneur, car manufacturer and racing team owner, he embodied the ingenuity, tenacity and grit to overcome any obstacle. He is perhaps the only person to have worked at a visible level with all three major American automobile manufacturers.
Carroll Shelby founded Carroll Shelby International, a publicly held corporation involved in many industries. His licensing arm has agreements with industry giants, such as Mattel, Sony, Ford Motor Company and Electronic Arts. His car company, Shelby American, has a thriving parts business as well as a line of muscle cars including the Shelby GT500 Super Snake, Shelby GT350 and Shelby GTS. The Las Vegas-based company also manufactures a limited number of the 1960s Shelby 289 “street,” 289 FIA, 427 S/C and Daytona Coupe Cobras.
Shelby considered his greatest achievement to be the establishment of the Carroll Shelby Foundation™. Created in 1992 while Shelby was waiting for a heart transplant, the charity is dedicated to providing medical assistance for those in need, including children, educational opportunities for young people through automotive and other training programs and benefitting the Carroll Shelby Automotive Foundation.
Shelby remained active in the management of each of his companies and the Foundation until his death, even though he endured both heart and kidney transplants in the last two decades of his life.
“We are all deeply saddened, and feel a tremendous sense of loss for Carroll’s family, ourselves and the entire automotive industry,” said Joe Conway, president of Carroll Shelby International, Inc. and board member. “There has been no one like Carroll Shelby and never will be. However, we promised Carroll we would carry on, and he put the team, the products and the vision in place to do just that.”
Shelby is survived by his three children Patrick, Michael and Sharon, his sister Anne Shelby Ellison of Fort Worth and his wife Cleo. Funeral plans are not currently available. Donations to the Carroll Shelby Foundation are encouraged in lieu of flowers. Information about the Carroll Shelby Foundation is available at www.carrollshelbyfoundation.org.
