Poor guys at advanced are not going to know what to do.


Sounds like you are going to have that thing in good shape before i arrive. I cant wait to see what that thing will do, with just some tuning and the exhaust work. Let alone the a smaller pulley. And dear god LSD, and SLICKS. I will bring you down a neck brace from the hospital

It sure is, remember you haven't seen a timeslip from me for this year. Merely took a little time away to help other members, attend a few meets and swap a few motors.

Initial scans of the fuel gauge are showing I'm probably running rich. Grabbed 4-5 scans over the last couple days and need time to analyze them. So far.. putting in the right MAF and swapping injectors I have noticed.

Part throttle KR is down to 1* or less around 1500-2000 rpms. I decreased these rpm by -1 in the timing table (to be loaded).
75-80F day and WOT timing is consistenly 15-17* currently based on the Timing Commander I have installed. I need to get the VE and MAF dialed in more before adding more timing. However previously with the wrong MAF table, I was seeing random KR as the PCM was having trouble calculating load etc.

The plan is to make changes based on facts and data. While I'd like to make only one change at a time ....time is no longer on my side this year.

Last night after fixing an Acura (yep..same one), the exhaust went on. The bottle neck was about a 2" down from the stock 2.5" piping. I planned a 3" res (wonder where that idea came from ) however the 3" didn't come in and Dan had a welder in his hand. The 2.5" went on the car. I'm sure that changed plenty.

The wheel studs nearly went in, but where the wrong diameter at the shoulder. And figuring we'd run late as usual...I didn't bring the LSD with me. That is going back in super soon.

While the car was on the lift.. we noticed a bad ball joint on the passenger side (I'd be Rob isn't surprised). A bad strut on the driverside front, was also spotted. I've been noticing both develop. Let'* not mention the leaking power steering line I've been ignoring

In another 15minutes the phone at the commerical desk of Advance Auto is going to ring. By the end of the conversation Jim will be gathering a caliper (starting to hang), ball joint, strut, the right wheel studs, a power steering line and who knows what else.

I am also considering an LIM mod that PA Mike mentioned dealing with coolant flow and blocked UIM ports. Having a Gen V.. the ports are blocked and I've felt that there could be better flow, didn't take the time to think about where a restriction might be. Seems that a 3/8" drill hole would match it up about right. Maybe in the spring if I decide to check my LIM gaskets.

Tuning is #1 on my list to make the car faster.....and faster it will get.

Thinking back to the one track outing.
3/4 tank of fuel
Full street trim including excessively filled trunk.
Excess weight on driver (hasn't changed)
No tuning
No slicks
Exhaust restriction

Look out top 10.. someones coming

PS...

I've never heard my car or another with it'* mods from outside of it. Dan is dropping it off this morning (I need el Trucko today) and told him to get on it a little.

Wow... It'* no wonder people get whiplash.

Bill you are easily mid 13'* when you get everything going good. I would put you 7th in the top 25 if you can get things figured out and get to the track again. I would put you right between these 2 guys in the top 25. I am going to say [email protected] 100.2

Everytime I change something of substance on my car I have my little sister do a few passes by the house late at night. Last time (w/ L67 ) she got scared and didn't go WOT for me :(
