Yes those Japanese precision instruments are hard to beat. Big Grin

Sure is gooped on there, wow, no wonder the sandpaper turned it's tail and ran.

sandpaper is still very much part of the fun, i also found the sack of abrasives that go on the power drill so will will have easier time with the remaining door piece, second set. i just lucked out is all, the finish was essentially falling off of this one.

after a few light passes with the 100 you can see the few tiny finish chips remaining and the crazing and cracking on the veneer. if you tap on it makes a papery sound, oh well i'll replace this one too just for fun wheeeeeWrench

disappointing day at the track. heat soaked, bog at the line, i could feel it pulling timing up top, or something else going on... not its usual "fast self". after waiting all damn morning for one pass it was a 17.333, so i got disgusted and left FUCKIT

maybe attending the winternationals will inspire me somewhat, idk.

edit: and the opponent was a dark gray 40th anniversary mustang on drag radials, this should have been fairly easy to pull off the upset

Looks like the track was slow that day too. I'd have thought that mustang would have run better than a 15.

RE: Brave Sir Robin
hopefully before march 3, next track day, i still have a issue or two to work on and a couple more tricks i can throw at it before then.

my dyno session was useless toward getting a closer tuned chip made since i never was able to my hands directly on the data, better luck next time i guess. still rounding up some more raw materials for the custom AMM and trying to figure out what diameter to make it vs. what size injectors to order.

Maybe it's time to take the plunge into truly programmable EFI. I ran better times than that with nothing but an exhaust, timing mods and a 50 shot.
Something isn't happy there, the big bog and long 60' shows something not so right.

Or just hose the hell out of it and let the nitrous tune it up.

RE: Brave Sir Robin
i ran much better times than this on the stock t3*, i might have to put that stuff back on briefly anyway.Tired

my plan is to figure out the "happy" AMM/inj combo, put to dyno, and then get a "dialed" chip from Simon. like i said before i still have a couple things to check out thoroughly and adjustments yet to perform tuning-wise before we go catapulting the entire GDP of Greece at it (again) and just when i'm getting it saved up (again) for the paint/interior... wow it would be so cool to drive a car that the paint doesn't look like shit for a change.

please take into account that i'm just barely getting "a car" put back together here, you remember what this thing was like when i got my hands on it!?! it's nice to have things working like gauges heat air conditioning et al. so i don't think i will be diving right into installing a new custom tqconv or fullEMS for now, i am just keeping things moving forward and trying to stay ahead of repairs, and hoping to have some more fun along the way.

* for reference

I know how the finances can slow projects like this, my car is taking forever to finish.
Your car has come a long way and it is still moving forward, better than many budget paced builds these days.

RE: Brave Sir Robin
I mean those holsets do not spool very well on a stock exhaust manifold with a stock torque converter off the line. Personally I would take the step to standalone or at least lh2.4 and a high stall converter if you plan on running the auto trans with the holset. Me and mike and others are getting great results and 1/4 mile time s

RE: Brave Sir Robin
look: you guys are trying to solve a minor problem with a major solution, i'd be perfectly happy with when it spools if it simply didn't misfire and fall completely flat on it's face at the starting line. sure 2.4 is nifty /fingertwirl BUT 2.2 IS WHAT WE'RE USING HERE PEOPLE so put away your 2.4 easy completion playbook and get out the ancient history reference encyclopedia because i got work to do and the above advice borders on annoying, just like offering advice to kjet people on how to make their car faster by upgrading it to LH, yeah, no.

by the way, you ever try to actually "drop" a 2.2 amm "sensor" into anything? the little fucker is welded together on the inside, it's a challenge and a half just to get one apart without breaking or melting it.

RE: Brave Sir Robin
nice work there! i already have a fabricator retained for this one, thanks for the real offer of help!

people say that resistor trick is a sham and everyone i hear about it from specifies a different value for it, the best idea i heard so far was throwing the pot(entiometer) on it. i like to deal more with constants within the expected range, so sizing the injectors up to a bigger amm is my stragedy. i know the browntops i run now (@ 2.5bar, which they really seem to like) won't deliver the power i want but should outperform what i had before, right?

Hmmmm last time i ran browntops with a 3inch maf the car ran horribly. it would lean out very fast and misfire and fall flat on its face, i do not know if upgrading your maf size will help you. you have a wideband in yourt car? i know when i was on lh 2.2 i never upgraded any thing as far as maf, injectors, and chips and i had the ol garrett 60/63 at 15psi and never really ran out of fuel on greentops.

RE: Brave Sir Robin
my previously vented skinny rod block says otherwise about running out of fuel on the green tops, we all know those do 14-15psi and that's it. i don't have the wideband in yet but when the car was put on on the DYNO it was rich all the way up to the revlimiter.

stealth progress edit

badvolvo: and don't think for one second that i have not already considered the "easy" way out with the AEM EMS4, that shit is even on my ebay watch. this project is moving in forward in stages, albeit slowly

ordered:
4" mandrel bent al pipe 6061 3mm wall
4" silicone coupler, 5 ply, black
4" silicone hump hose coupler, black
4" silicone 90* bend
4" inlet x 9" AEM Dryflow cone filter
gang's all here. measure twice, cut off, mark up and send for fab

when the babby is in my hands i will measure the exact ID's and do the math myself down to the cunt hair, order injectors. enough with the rumors and approximations! i conduit

dawn patrol stealth edit- interim progress, goofing off, and tests report
'wet' ECU swapped for 'dry', static ign timing 14*, base fuel pressure 43.5psi
pre-dawn romp reveals the 'usable' off the line performance i'm looking for but it doesn't feel as 'juicy' on the freeway. pulls well up top though, enough to get in big trouble. danger to manifold, it glows a little moar now, so perhaps we advance a degree of timing, put the diagnostic LED back in it and drive it around some more tonight.
