Little things going on here and there. Autocrosses, rallycrosses and recently a hillclimb at Okemo Mountain in VT. The hillclimb was extremely fun but was the epitome of "have fun driving a slow car fast". I might have lifted only a few times for the 30 turn, 2.5 mile course. Power hasn't been a focus with this car yet but in preparing for the hillclimb I added a hobbs switch to trigger terminal 11 for 10psi and set the mbc to 12. Made a bit of difference but now I need to shim the fuel dizzy and up it to 15psi. Also have an A cam I got from another member that will go in soon.

Shot at an RX in new york


Video of my best run at Okemo 2:51.86, breakout time was 2:43 (if you breakout you need a cage)

You shouldn't need T11 at 10psi. Are you running lean?

That hillclimb looks awesome though.

It's setup to switch on at 10psi so it doesn't lean out by 12. If i left it alone it would be around 12/13 afr by 10-12 psi.

Nothing since August when I parked it. Before that however I Terminal 11'd it and added a Grimmspeed mbc. My radiator didn't like 18psi(fuel was still good) and it sprung a leak...15psi was the happy spot. Also made a full 2.5" turboback over-axle exhaust.

Recently I've been helping out a buddy with his 83' K-Jet 242 and it's gotten me really motivated to make mine more awesome.







Here's how it sat in August-ish.

Excellent work on the car, looks great! I really need to give my 242 some love this year. Those rally cross events look awesome, where are they? I'm located in CT and would love to take my 242 to one. Also the hillclimb looks like a blast and would love to bring the car there too. Keep up the good work!

This assembly is a hair under $300 with all the parts (Delphi injector, pressure damper, 0-100 psi fuel pressure gauge, machined block).

The block is part of a fuel only MS conversion (for now). All the k-jet stuff will be replaced by the usual MS package of MAP, TPS, IAT, CLT and O2 sensors. The only additions to MS are the fuel pressure gauge, the Delphi injector and the frequency valve.

Very cool setup. Looks like a good alternative to the UTCIS, or even a stock replacement regulator.
