averaged 17mpg on the last tank of gas, including the trip to the track, this is ~ 3mpg better than stock chips at the same boost. Not great, but the car is primarily driven a mile and a half at a time, so the econ is going to blow ass anyway.

did some PM on this yesterday (Despite the gale force winds blowing oil every ****ing where), checked the a/c system, lamented the apparently leaking cam seal (And possibly other front engine seals), checked the breather system and cleaned the elbow. need to make sure it's not clogged at the turbo inlet hose.

the 'consumption' has gotten worse, so I'll probably be doing the t-belt/wp/front seals and taking a hard look at the turbo next oil change (heh, so, july )

a/c system is a mixed bag of good and bad. it is fully charged, that's a good. the compressor is beat to hell and substantially more difficult to turn than the low mileage unit I picked up, so it's gotta get opened up. ordered a VOV and a new dryer, so I'll get it pumped out, flush the system, replace those items, and hopefully rock it out cold style.

meh, it appears to have a full charge of 134, as evidenced by the ester oil and **** that sprayed me in the face when I was trying to check the system.

I ran 9.30s in the 1/8th with a 13c, and Mike's chips, 4 bar FPR, and a full 3 inch turbo back exhaust. Seems about right.

So I guess I should do just fine with a 15G and I don't really need an even bigger turbo like many folks would have me believe. I am noticing though that the squirter equipped engines do seem to run harder. I think it's because they can get away with more boost and more timing before detonation sets in. I want a 93-95 Brick now. That way I'll have a G80 too!
Regards, Eric

When? I just checked your thread. Has there been a recent development that you have failed to post to your thread? I know you'll get there, I just didn't know you already had.

since beepee is a punkass and found an un-used adc, I've ordered (and should be picking up this afternoon) a wideband for the wagon. Now I suppose I can at least manipulate the air/fuel ratios.

fought the wideband fight, attached a wire to the spare ADC, and experienced bitter failure attempting to datalog the wideband signal (probably as much because it was 11pm before testing started as anything).

oh well, who needs sleep.

oh man I like wagons. went and got a 6x8 shed from HD, two boxes, if I'd had the foresight to ditch the seat bottoms, I could have closed the rear hatch. And they didn't think it would fit

borrowed the ostrich, whooped a little bit of a tune on the car. low 11's instead of 10.0 at full boost, and cruise afrs in the upper 14's to mid 15's. better. need to see what unbolting the exhaust does to the load. should probably start doing this on the dyno.
