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.
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.
I have 880's not 440's . Well scratch dynoing on fri. They fucked up my appoinment and schedualed me on a day that they will be racing world challange in canada. So I don't get tuned untill june 9th. Talk about a lot of hustle and work for nothing big big let down
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.
