Typically on this setup you don't need larger injectors. I'm basically saying I think..without knowing fully yet.

HP Tuners is looking into..where the injector pulse width is on my car (since I can't seem to find it) and once I have that..it'll be easy to tell.

Meanwhile..it'* freaking pouring out.. I had one evening w/o rain since the install.

Got the pulse width working with the quick turnaround help from HP Tuners. Scans are looking good.

Although...as I was cruising along around 40mph at 1600 rpm.. I glanced over and saw 2-3 degrees of KR. Throttle was maybe 2-5%.. I'll need to address that or determine it was a ghost.

The car is also waking up the more I drive it. Wowwwwwwwwww

So, how are the PWs looking? Anything obvious?

Good to hear that the car is finding it'* "Gen V/cam" comfort zone. Once (if) it ever stops raining, give us your revised impressions.

Roger on that..

Things to finish up.
WSS disable relays
Put tar patch back on firewall main engine harness connector
Put maxifuse relay center cover back on
Adjust length of FWI and recharge filter
Cover line for boost gauge with loom.
Bring wiring for air temp sensor into the cabin.
Consider adding a second set of wires for the IAT in the intake air stream.

Bottom end is knocking and it'* shot. When the crank had a case of the near dropsies...it had one or two little nicks that I polished out. Things looked good..for 200 miles.

New motor will be picked up Saturday morning. TFC doesn't know it yet..but he'* probably going to be helping swap.

Stay tuned for a potential new PB on an engine removal.
