Here's what's been going on so far.
Had the MS in for a week now.
I started out with the base map that came in the PNP and worked from there.
I WAS running with stock 1.8 injectors, and a BEGI Rising Rate FPR.
I yanked that crap out, and threw some MX-6 turbo injectors (gotta go back to my F2T roots here somewhere in this project. 320cc injectors running great).
The car starts a bit rough, doesnt want to idle at first, but once the car starts to warm up, it runs pretty decent.
From the stock base map I've had to take anywhere from 30-45 down on the VE Fuel map throughout the RPM/kpa ranges. It was dumping more fuel in that my wideband gauge could read, enough to choke the car out and keep it from going past 5500 RPM.
I had a friend ride with me, and we adjusted the fuel tables, and everything is running great so far. Car will pull decently through the RPM band, but still needs some more tuning, as it feels it's still a bit restricted due to running a bit rich still.
Car still needs some tuning for starting, but so far, so good. I'm putting in another motor this weekend, as the one I'm on now is getting some blow-by and I have the blue cloud of doom following me around, much like Crown Vics and Caprice Classics and old Dodges have.
I've also got some "colder" plugs to put in. I also have to wire in the wideband O2 sensor and the IAT sensor to the MSPNP.
I haven't messed with the base timing yet, but I left it at about stock after I put the supercharger in, to keep things conservative and keep from blowing anything up without proper fuel management and just using band aids.
