I mean whenever I drive next to another car that is putting out a strange smell I always worry that it is my car.
A long time ago, before I know you had to put super-torque on the Wilwood bleeder screws, I had a small brake fluid fire so every-time I smell brakes, I freak out and waste a lap obsessing. It's pretty sad.
Jeezus, are you new to this turbo thing? Thats normal. And your gauges, you shouldnt have put them in with your condition. Run the car and dont worry unless you see, hear, or smell something strange. (that isn't related to your farts) as for de3, shuiend, this is texas, we do what we want. I run de3 whenever I miss a tt session or need to make a few test laps. Wouldn't make sense to run in de4 though, as they are out with tt most of the time in these parts.
damn, I wish they would make TT and DE4 run together all the time. Unfortunately they group DE3 and DE4 here a lot which is one reason I have been hesitant to ask to move up to DE3, those DE4 guys can get a little happy in the corners and I am not so used to driving offline to let someone pass (although I pass off line many times, it seems to be an instructor habit to ask me to drive off line into the next braking zone lol).
I never shared this and found it today. Here is a comparison of the factory fuel pressure regulator against the Fuelab regulator.
Note: These tables are only tuned up to 184kpa.
The big difference in driving was that AFR hits the target every time, every lap, 11.7:1 at 12psi...every time. Before, I'd see fluctuation from 10.8-11.8, and tuned for 11.5 accordingly. Now, I can run the 11.7 target and it hits those numbers. I suppose there is less "float" with this regulator.
It's also a little sad to see these cute, little 12x12 tables. I want to get MS2 on both cars now. Maybe this summer I'll do an MS3 job on the turbo car and convert to sequential fuel, maybe even do LS1 coils too. Then again, the car drives fine and gets the job done. I should probably do it now so I can get something for my MSpnp1.
Yes. I've been talking to tech support (Neil) about it. I'm about to get a resistor and see what it reads. I suspect they need to change the firmware.
Mine does that randomly also. It all started spring 2011 when I was at the dyno day with Braineack. He was like what does this single button on the temp gauge do? He then started pressing it changing ----. After that it would also do the read way off. Back in February sometime it just randomly started working again. Nothing at all changed. As far as I can tell with working with tech support it has something to do with how the temp sensor is grounded. They will tell you to take the wire that is running to the temp sensor and touch it to the metal casing around the gauge to see if the temps go up to somewhere in the 300's. If so then the gauge is fine, and it is something with the sensor grounding.
When it does work fine it is within 10 degrees of what TS reads my temps as.
