Thanks for the toast.

Sure wish I was there.........I could smell the chinese food on O'Neil'* breath in that burp pic.

That was Bill'* normal expression after a shot of Patron.......he'* too used to beer.

Glad the TB adapter washer trick worked and held up for the trip home.

How did your mileage compare on the trip back?

I bet you love the distinctive whine of the Gen 5.

......any KR?

Mileage not as good as the way down but was getting better as the pcm did its learning.

Still have to program the 401 code out.....got that one about 20 times yesterday

Love the whine and the snap in boost.

Getting some part throttle knock around 50-60 and 20% engine load.
Will need to tune the maf and scan the injectors once I clean up some vacuum lines and re flush the coolant. Still have a few more things to work out before wcbf

The BIG mileage gain was Taylor (tpulliam79). DOWNHILL from his place to mine he got 24/25. Going back home is largely UPhill, and he got 29.




Tequila makes me crazy.

We made it home safe and sound. I don't know if I have ever mentioned how wonderful my kids are!! The house was clean, our bed was all made, the TV room was spotless, and they were both in bed when we came in the door. I had to work today, so I am a little tired now.

Bill, I didn't forget about you in my little post before, I just wanted to wait until I got home. You are truly a member of our family, and you will always be. Thank you so much for all you did, and for putting up with us. We miss you already, and we can't wait to see you this simmer.

Wendy.....YAHOO on the job, I knew you would get it. Now our plans need to come together and all will be right in the world

I am off to have a little down time, PDad will post more pictures later. Oh, and no, there are not very many pictures of me, I was the one in charge of taking the pictures, you know how these boys get....they always forget to snap the good shots.

Let me know what you had to do to get rid of that part throttle KR.

Time to change your sig.

We blocked the EGR with the GenV work just like we did yours. Just need to kill the code and all will be good in the world.

Ahhhh......another convert.

......getting ready for the intercooler.


Sounds like the part throttle KR is common with a Gen 5 conversion.

GenV'* are just that much more efficient, and probably just need to have the part-throttle fuel maps richened up a tad.

Bill deleted the best of the pictures from that night......I was washing his face. Our poor waiter, he had to deal with Bill'* bad behaviour, geez, we can dress Bill up, but we can't take him out Okay, you know I am joking, Bill was a good sport, even if he did try to embarrass me with the hostess.....It didn't work.
