Half ducting done At least it works! And tested to 210 km/h, so I am sure IT wont became loose on track



And a small clip from the Trakday , the car filming is from a Forum user NB8

Hello guys,

I think I need your help on this subject. Since I have installed Megasquirt (and since now I have a way to real read my water temperatures) the water temperature readings are weird. My water temperature is always fluctuating.

Check out my log:



I am inclined to replace my water temperature sensor on the back of the head. But I assumed I should ask before spending money.

Check your grounds? Looks noisy more than failed sensor to my n00b eyes.

Yep. If you plot your injector duty cycle, you'll see a really close match.

Hello guys,

Well the car has been performing flawless. I am really happy with it. I have been doing a lot of road miles and it never stops putting s mile on my face. Boost is so addictive. Well, enough off bitch talk.

Yesterday I attended a event in a Kart Track. The car performed without any problem, but the car was a little humid and my tyres (Federal 595 RSR) were far from the R compound (Yokohama A048) that I am accustomed to. But I did know that when I bought them  anyway I managed the best time.

That looks like a fun car to drive and a pretty car to look at.

I am attending a Track day on the 07 February…

Well guess not!





Well, while I was there I removed the front bumper to start doing a proper ducting.



Hope to end the ducting today. Some pictures off my ghetto work soon.

Hello guys,

A couple days ago I decided to use virtual dyno to get a base lin. I made 2 logs and the results were separated from each other within 1hp/.

Pretty accurate I would say. Anyway, this is what I got:



I reckon that the dip I see in torque/hp is due to the fact that the vics is not working, I am having a few problems wiring it , Dimitris and myself are trying to solve this.

Now, to tune the car properly I reckoned I would need a good knock sensor, so my choice was this Phormula KS04 where I can monitor everything and even connect the headphones to it.



Overall view off the interior.



And off course, my new addition, 15rwhp gain with this for sure…



So, in a couple of days let´s tune spark!

Next time I update this thread will it be with a great dyno/video or with a hole in a block. Either way you will know it

Also become Supporter , because every time i have a doubt i came over here and i think if one forum deserves it is this one.

Over and out.
