Welp

Time to get a new wideband sensor. MTX-L is only displaying htr... Started doing this after some exhaust explosions a while back. Going to try calibrating it first and see where I get from there.

I've also run the dw200 for a while with the stock nb1 fuel system (megasquirt ecu) I've had no issues.

Well, dammit. One of the two candidates we're considering came for his second interview today. Our HR director asked him why he wanted to leave his current job. In the first interview with just my boss and me last week, he said something generic about looking for an opportunity for more growth. Today he decided to tell us how he "butts heads" with his boss all the time and how his boss isn't a team player. And then just when I thought he was finished, he decided to illustrate his point by relaying a lengthy and detailed account of one time when he knew his boss was wrong and argued with him about it but finally decided to just walk away.

G, don't you have ***** mounts still?

I'd much rather deal with a bit of fuel pump noise rather than ***** mounts.

My walbro 255 doesn't bother me at all

That's too bad, although sometimes clashing with the boss is a sign of a highly passionate employee pushing back against incompetent leadership. I recall years ago when someone I know had a boss who constantly changed his weld details...and his markups were always wrong, but he was stubborn as hell bc he was "boss." Try telling someone who's welded for 30 years that his weld details are wrong...they don't like that much.

That may be true.

Still, in a job interview, you do not bad-mouth former colleagues. I don't care if the VP of your prior company ordered you to slaughter kittens and sprinkle their blood over his genitals while he smoked meth and raped orphans beneath a burning American flag with feces smeared all over it. You still don't bitch about it during an interview.

Oh absolutely. I've had bad bosses before. It wasn't the fact that he clashed with this boss; it was the poor judgment in deciding to talk about it (in detail!) during a job interview that did him in.

Searched and nothing definite. Symptoms of high intake temps?

I only notice this mostly in the afternoon, near 100F temps outside driving home in semi stop and go traffic.

When I let off the gas pedal completely, usually AFR will shoot up to 22 for fuel cut and the car will decel like normal. Recently in the heat, when I let off there is no fuel cut. Runs rich (10-12 AFR), sputters.. RPMs slowly fall. If I release the clutch it still runs rich and the idle is at around 2k RPM.

IAT is right behind the radiator

How hard is installing a window AC unit. I am highly considering buying this AC unit and installing it in my garage. It being 100+ degrees out is really killing my wanting to work on cars. Also how long does it take to actually start cooling off the room its in.

Open window. Plug in.

Depends on how insulated your garage is. If its not insulated then it will never get super cold. If its well insulated it will probably get decently cool.
