Scheduled to go back on the dyno at the end of the month (finally). Hit a pothole and bent a rim last month and just got the wheel back yesterday.

You fixed those skinny wheels? If you ever needed an excuse for some wider wheels that was it!

what of the 10 year old tires?

Cheaper to fix skinny wheel than to buy 4 of something else (that has yet to be identified). Tires are closer to 12 years old. They have maybe 1000 miles them. Not interested in buying new tires for skinny wheels right now. Need to burn a little rubber off them first.

Any pictures of the car in decent light? It's obvious the paint is well done, but all the reflections off the trees and building kill the lines and make it look like none of the bodywork lines up properly.
Maybe some pics at dusk with indirect lighting?

nah, paul cuts more corners than a seamstress. nothing lines up, and the engine bay is a very cleverly painted plastic overlay

Can't wait to see the numbers

The paint (except for the hood) is factory and none of the body panels (except for the hood) have ever been off. So if it looks bad, blame Volvo.

Assuming the tread doesn't fall off first...

Definitely anxious on the results...

I was anxiously waiting for this reply. Love it. I wanted to say it, but since it's your car felt you deserved the honors.

You forgot to mention that the car is stored in a climate controlled garage the chassis only has ~30k on it. Lots of car on Tbricks still have factory paint. This car has like new factory paint.

Default I’ve found the limits of the stock fuel system...

I guess I’ve completed Stage 1 of the engine install. Four years is too long.

The engine was tuned to the limits of the stock fuel system. Other than an additional relay at the rear near the battery (so that the pumps are fed directly from the battery) my fuel system is stock from the in-tank pump up to the under-hood filter.

I have a list of things to do, but the fuel system upgrade is at the top, before tuning can resume. The chassis pump will either be the Aeromotive A1000 or the Bosch 044. I suspect I will delete the in-tank pump. (The Aeromotive people said their pump would work fine without one, even with a tank that draws from the top).

For performance purposes the car is essentially undriveable now. But adequate replacement tires are much more complicated than the fuel system upgrade (as Cappy and Bne can attest) and will wait until after the tuning is done.

Here is an Excel chart with the best torque run and best HP run merged, boost scale on right. Fuel pressure began to drop as the RPMs rose towards 6000 so the tuning stopped there. The engine does not have very much timing in it now for the same reason. Injectors are at about 78% duty cycle so they are not the limitation.

Chart is posted for info/update purposes only for people who enjoy chart-gazing, but I suspect it will look different when all is said and done.

great numbers Paul, especially the torque...

you should bring this to our (B)NE1.0 gathering we are going to setup next year in the spring.

so you're right around 28psi max boost now?

Looks great! And normally we don't see torque numbers that are higher than HP at this level... Awesome work. Can't wait to see what it'll do as the rpm continue to increase with more fuel. Thanks for posting!

yes, that's what i was noticing, that's what the extra displacement will help do for you.

those hp numbers should definitely sky rocket once they can tune it past 6k. The engine is built to make power well above 6k so we should see some very nice numbers once the fuel system upgrades are finished.

the size of turbo will have an affect on that as well, he's all in at 28 by 4200 and not suprisingly, thats where the tq peaks at. Looks good, get the fuel system sorted out. I went with two 044's and no in-tank pump, I've heard a lot of mixed reviews about the A1000 from the honda people, and those pumps are fairly loud. my 044's are relatively quiet even with being mounted to the body of the car with a pair of metal brackets.

I would suggest an 044 under the car, and a bona-fide walbro in the tank, or if you can dig one up, a 300zx TT pump, something like that. the combo would give you more than enough headroom for the setup unless you pick up a T88 in the future ;)
