Had 5 GPs over today. Tuning, scanning, pulley changes, radiator flush, mixing race fuel, getting pulled over. All in all a good day.

Ya, that was funny. Doing a scan because I was setting the timing. He turned around and got on it, 80 mph. I'm watching the computer then I here him say #$%& a cop. I'm like what? Ya, he'* turning around. I say dude, your doing 80, were only a mile from the shop. Make the last corner and a semi gets between us. The cop goes right around him. About a 1/4 mile from the shop and the lights go on. Close the computer and slid it under the seat. He says, should I say we were tuning. NOOO, not a word. Just said we missed our corner and had to do a U turn and got on it a little bit because of traffic.

Because of the rain at the track we didn't go race so ended up in my shop, did a little more work. Tracked down a bad wire on the TPS plug on the red GTX and fixed that. No more SES light. Then added a bit more fuel on the very top end. Then the blue GTP pace car came up and did a scan. He had a slight stumble at 4% throttle. The TPS line didn't look right at that point, a bit jagged. Decided to change the TPS and it seemed to clean up the stumble. Added a bit more fuel at the top end. Still not happy with the timing. He'* going to fix a bad motor mount, I'm sure that'* not helping any. And he'* thinking about rebuilding the supercharger. I can here some clunking, and it'* not the copuler. He'* going to do some porting when he has it off as well. That should help with the timing.
