Nice day today.

Had to go for some test driving before I leave my Bonne for two whole months. :(

Warmed up with the Boost cooler turned off.
Outside temp 60* F
Post SC temp stabilized at 125* F
Engine temp 160* F
Trani temp 160* F because I have the auxilliary cooler in series with the coolant rad.

Aggressive acceleration boosted the post SC temp to 160* F with a peak at WOT of 200* F.

Turned on the Water injection.
Aggressive acceleration lowered the post SC temp from 120 to 90* F.....even at WOT.
I didn't push it at all, since it'* still learning the new fueling but the A/F readings were normal to rich.
Much richer than before when it'* warming up.

I turned off the engine and then left the electric water pump and fan on low for 2 minutes and the engine coolant dropped to 150* F

Does someone have a portable battery charger for the track. I can see that being an issue.
Battery voltage dropped to 11.8 v with engine off.

After not having driven the Bullet for two whole weeks I took it out after swapping up to the 3.4 from the 3.1 pulley.

Since I'm leaving again in two weeks and will have to leave the Bullet with my Darling wife to (drive delicately around town ) I decided to pulley back into the safe range.

Noticed that the after SC temp dropped from 130 to 110F.

Damn part throttle KR is still there.

Timing under heavy throttle still staying low at 13 degrees.

This really makes me lust for a normally aspirated big displacement V8 with RWD......

I never should have got that Aeroforce gauge. What you don't know won't hurt you......right.

Yes and so did I............that'* why I popped the 3.4 back on.

Only my wife will be driving it for the next couple of months and she never floors it.
......and she doesn't look at gauges.

It just surprises me that Intense could not preprogram part throttle fuel enrichening into the PCM based on knowing what my mods were....particularly with Todd'* experience..

So all they did was eliminate my EGR code and reprogram for the new injectors.

Note - I notice now that it runs much richer (particularly when cold it takes much longer to go to stoich 14.7 and the LTFT and STFT are way rich at -10 ) than before the PCM adjustment when I had the AFC 1.1 connected.
