hehehe, hit fuel cut yesterday. got a bit greedy with the gain setting on the boost controller. I really need to loosen the kick down cable a touch. Put a new ground strap on the alternator last night, seems to have killed the RPM sensor CEL I've been getting (but still have an occasionally unsteady idle. not enough to threaten to die, just.. not buttery smooth like the normal T-cam goodness. might clean the idle speed motor). Seems to have a wheel speed sensor issue, might troubleshoot that tomorrow after work.

5.3 GMC truck engine with an auto and a Class III hitch... Plus nitrous

Or a 4-barrel carb on a 350 so instead of beating your brains out with an oscilloscope, you can jump in something that will run even if rats ate the wiring harness.

yes look at it. Wait, what?

Car is wonderful.. well more or less. I have a few things to sort out, it's got a flat spot in the power band from off idle to about 3000rpms, probably oughta check the timing & make sure everything is lined up correctly. Still getting the rpm sensor code in the ezk, so I need to pop the inspection cover off and check the tone ring, make sure it's not ****ed up or something stupid like that.

Need to address the rotten exhaust system too.. That'll be after xmas (and maybe after new years). trying to decide what I want to run.. either patchwork (which is what sam will vote for) or go ahead and roll in a 3 inch with two mufflaz (not duals, in line. don't be retarded). Also gonna need to roll an intake with that beloved 'hot air cone filter', the air box is ol n' busted, and the inlet hose has seen better days.

sounds like my DD, the F+T '92 240 LH2.4. Power is decent, but it's got some spots where it's a little flat. Typical old LH? Exhaust is heinous (stock n/a), so I will do 3" dp to 2.5" single muffler in the spring with my fancy new welder

Shouldn't be that much of a flat spot, though I'm also used to nothing other than a VX or a turbo cam. The vx wakes pretty nice off the get-go as did the turbo cam, even on stock ecu's. I'd vote for perhaps timing being off a touch, since I know even my brother's t-cam came on pretty early in the game, even on k-jetz.

I think you've got it nailed, with the chips, maybe find some 46# injectors and an 012/025, a 15g at 15psi, and roll with it. NICE combo for a DD with grunt right from the get-go, still enjoyable to drive, and cheap enough to do.

hm. well someone thought it'd be nice to riffle through the 940 last night, they coulda put the stuff in the glove box back in the glove box. oh well. That's why I don't keep anything in the cars, and why I don't lock the wagon.. no broken windows just wasted time for some unscrupulous person.

I know enough police that it'd probably be fine, but it's not worth the hassle. There was nothing of value (to your average thief) in the car, I don't really plan on putting much of anything in the car in the near term, so it's more funny than it is a hassle. Nothing was broken, nothing was taken, no harm no foul.

it's not a frequent occurrence around here, most thieves go to the rich side of town to tear stuff up, so I'm reinforcing that behavior indirectly by not providing them any reason to keep checking the street out (aside from the car not being locked).

It's a lot easier to spend 3 seconds putting an owner's manual and registration slip back in the glove box than it is to pull panels and vacuum glass, and replace a window (which I have, but do not want to deal with)

fixed the exhaust last night.. well sort of. the resonator was blown away on both ends, so I stuffed my spare resonator on the car. the over-the axle pipe was... not off a turbo car and I'm not sure it was even originally a volvo piece. it's awful as well as tiny.

so I reckon i'll start piecing together the stuff for a 2.5 inch system.

Took it to the track just for S&G's.

14.5 @... Well I don't know, the mph was wrong. says 30.35.

1/8th time of 9.2@73.88, so ~ mid 90's trap speed would be be close if not a little generous.

Track forum:
whatever boost it was set at
pump gas
street tires at ? psi (didn't/havent touched em since I bought the car. some 195/65/15 bs)
Mike's chips
exhaust unbolted at the downpipe (exhaust fully connected.. with the 1.5 inch over axle pipe: 16.1 with a 2.3 60')

and that's it. with the slicks, hell it'da been real close to a 13 second pass, coulda stalled it up past about 4psi.


never did get the guy with the automatic GSX to line em up, I'da liked pissing all over his 15 second ride

yes, sadly, complete with locker room smell.

I'm about to run to HD, so maybe it'll have a cow **** smell next time (buying processed manure for the garden)
