Well, after a few days of butt-tuning the J&S Ultra-Safeguard, I'm finally satisfied with the way it runs. Just installed new ZFR7-11 NGK spark plugs and wires today and turned the timing down to 10 degreess advanced (was at 14), significantly less knock and the little I have, the J&S tames it nicely. For some reason, cylinder #1 seems to be the only one knocking near redline. I'll chase that gremlin later.
Had a little scare when I a small puddle of coolant was left every time I stopped somewhere, but that was chased down to a faulty rubber plug next to the temp sender in back of the engine. I screwed in a slightly-larger screw and capped it off with this....
AFR a little on the rich side at WOT (10.5ish) and leaner towards redline (13ish). Not sure how to fix that, which is why i want to do more research before I mess with fuel pressures.
I decided to install just the base kit to learn more about boost before I add the intercooler, Bell AFPR, and o2 clamp. Had to get creative with the Bailey BOV and I think it turned out dayam good, and decided to do something different with the air intake location. Since I took the power steering and a/c, it was a no-brainer....
I still haven't figured out where I want the fuel pressure gauge located. I don't like pillar pods but I might have to cause the line-of-sight is better then below the radio.
I learned a lot during the process that the greddy instructions (and the FAQs) don't mention. I'll list those later when I have time to help out the other NoObs.
Thanks to everyone here for the great info!! Stayed tuned for my "Round Two" of questions.
