Hazaa! Good to see this bad larry running. What's all the smoke coming out of the bay; burning oil or exhaust wrap?

got it running again. set the base timing, everything seems cats meow. still needs alot of tunning. atleast it will rev up now but its very rough, but thats why im taking it to the dyno for tuning. sounds mean as **** though and the temps are good and A/F is around 12.5:1 - 14.0:1
although i have a mismatch with my a/f between the gauge and the TS on my laptop of about 1.0 leaner on the laptop.

It sounds pretty serious.

Are you planning on going as far on the body work as you did on the engine/drive?

yeah pretty serious

i already have autokonexion kevlar gt widebody kit,carbon vented hood and version 2 trunk and finish panne. i posted pics a few pages back.

once its tuned ill be focusing on body stuff cause the weather is getting nice out. i need to go pick out my paint and get the body stuff. the car needs to make a quick trip to a body shop to have the damage in the back of the car straightend out. then once i do that i gotta cut out the rear quarters to prepare for the new flares. i have a **** load of work still ahead of me, i still need to rebuild the diff with a 3.6 gear set and a kazz lsd.

Did you have some kind of budget in mind when you started building the car, or did you just kind of 'wing it'? It looks like you have a grip invested.

I myself tend to get the shipright disease, and end up spending way more than I should, and taking longer than expected.

I love the blow-off sounds. Certainly lookin' good. Sure needs some tuning though.

Are you really thinking 440 injectors will be enough?! Seems like a nicely done motor - even on my mostly stock FM-II with MSM cams, I am pushing the limits of my 550's.

Have you run through and set up injector opening times and all that? It makes it a heck of a lot easier to tune, that thing should be purring like a kitten.

AH! I read the wrong guy's sig. :-) Sounds much better.

Perhaps not for beating on it, but I'm sure you can do a street tune pretty quick to get yourself in reasonable shape. MS-II? There's some writeup on how to get started in my Baseline MSQ thread for my adaptercard, should work just as well on your setup.

Breaking in I can totally agree on, I'm a bit nervous too about a new motor going in with a map that's not ready for it.

But certainly the VE stuff is easy, and there's a closed loop control which helps keep it sane too. Certainly so you have no worries under 5 psi. Put on a knock sensor and you're in a "definitely won't break it" mode.
