Back to burping air out of the system. Takes a couple days to get it all and reach peak efficiency. The car is running great, and is a bit quieter with the CC lifters and the valvetrain running as tight as I intended.

Good to hear Bill
Glad you got that pesky lifter out of there, were you able to figure which one was making the noise?

Not sure on which one. Don't really care, either. They're all mixed up again.

I found my EGR loose (where it mates to the SC) today. So my fuel tuning went out the window and I started again from scratch, but she'* run good for our errands today. The longer screw in the AFPR was the key. Mechanically tuning the FP is far more predictable and successful than other methods.

Good to be driving the Zilla again.


IC coolant is blue this time. I want to know what leak is what. Water-wetter is in both cooling systems now as well.

My first oil change is due. I have everything, probably do that tomorrow.

UPDATE:


Car is running well enough to push the limits.

Dropping from the 2.5" back down to the ridiculous 2.2" (not the insane 2.0" just yet).

Notice I added my extra idler off the front cylinder head again. I run this for the 2.2" and the 2.0" for much greater belt wrap. Gives me far more consistent and strong accelleration when it'* installed.

Imagine the belt wrap WITHOUT that extra idler, especially with the 2.0" pulley:

Here'* where the tension is with it installed and the 2.2" pulley:

It sits one tic to the left with the 2.0" installed.

Routing of the intercooler inlet (front line across the SC) is a little different now. Much better. Had to remove the front valve cover to get the 45 degree fitting in though:

And I went blue with the IC water this time. Running a mix of distilled water, about 20% 'mixes with any' antifreeze for safety and pump lubrication, water wetter, and about 30 drops of blue food coloring.

When something leaks, I'll know which it is.


Road testing can't happen now. Gotta move the Zilla out for lilpooky'* new car to move in.

We'll get back to it. Gotta shake down the fueling and tuning first. Then we can see how the intercooler affects the tuning and fueling, and if the PCM can adapt to both scenarios.
