lolol. No mention of wiring though. Also I have walbro 400. Not Bosch 044 with the shitty pickup sock.

Oem bulkhead connector uses some weird **** that is like pressed in. Not for flat surfaces gay.

OEM sock fits in walbro400. Should solve pickup issues.

Still need to deal with gay wiring.

Also currently in talks with the MS guys about adding an air temperature correction to the new boost control.

I know that a lot of OEM's boost control tables include an IAT input. Subarus certainly do, and while its kind of complicated its my favorite boost control scheme.

I desperately need it. My boost dc varies by up to 5% depending on air temps. And the new control scheme takes the bias table into account very heavily.

If you are interested in testing it and have megasquirt head over there and pipe up. Things get moved along faster if you have willing testers and can get results quickly.

Are you running open loop EBC, or closed?

Alright I think I finally figured out this god damn fuel pump wiring.

E85 safe connector to pump. Teflon wire with teflon heat shrink. Up through some sort of wire bulkhead. 12 gauge. Some sort of connector. Relay. Battery.

If any other company made that bulkhead connector I would do it that way. Instead I'm using a grommet and fuel safe sealant.

Hows that going to work? You're putting a connector in the grommet? You did see all the heing and hawing I did over my electrical solution right, because I didnt want the wiring to wick fuel up out of the tank. Funny story about that. I've got oil all over my center console because it wicked up my oil temp gauge wire.

If my wire is sealed from fuel everywhere how will it wick up?

The same way coolant leaks out of a sealed coolant system and how your ac charge slowly decreases over time.

Any rubbing with the spacers in there? Or do you have to wait until the next track day before you can really tell.
