Lmao. Josh and Jake thanks for coming and help me work on my ****. I think I know what the problem with the hot start is. The ******* coolant sensor is not reading ****, so MS in injecting fuel as if the engine is cold. IIRC I have some what like ~6 in the mid range temperature, and ~8 in the very cold temp on the crank settings. I take it that MS is injecting way too much fuel and flooding the engine.

Also since we had a leak of fuel to begging with when the car start from the start, and now that leak is fixed this SOB is running super ******* rich when starting. Also my cheap Autozone battery die after sitting for so long.

PS: **** that puto from Autozone

Eh, I wasn't really a fan at first (they came on the car) but they've grown on me. If I ever finish my Miata (Tuesday Josh, Tuesday), I'll finally get those CCWs I've had my eye on.

We didn't plan it. I was invited over for what I thought would be an hour of me watching them check for leaks in the raft (teehee) but instead I walked into something straight out of www.dockfuck.com (nsfw but hot).

Holy ****, you are going to have pay me in multiple cases of beer for working on that thing. We can get it done though, just a long days worth of work.

And go **** yourself for that docking **** I just ate!

I got your text this morning, your theory seems plausible. I didn't get a chance to look at your cold crank setting but this seems right.

Remember when I said that the temp sensor looked busted when we bolted the coil pack back on? It was right after that the car started having issues when it got hot. Now that all the fuel leaks are gone(and hopefully stay gone), just replace the coolant sensor and watch out for the tab on the bottom of the coil pack. I'm 99% sure that is what was causing all the problems. Because before then...it was perfect.

P.S. That loser at AutoZone should go die.

The ****** now starts with no issues. The sensor was beat to **** by the coil pack. I had to re-connect the wires and mount the sensor in the heater side to avoid any contact with the coil bracket.

There's still a few minor issues. The drain is pissing oil a little too much, but i thing a new fitting would fix that. I also have no temperature readings on the dash, only on MS.

Can someone post a VE table to kinda get an idea of where my fuel should be?

Are you using tuner studio? You should be! Set your afr target table, set you limits in VE live and go driving. After crusing is done it will give you a bit of an idea where your boosted cells need to be.

Isn't the coolant sensor for the dash on the back of the head beside the heater core housing?

Dont jinx it. I still have things to unfail. The drain leak I figure it out (I think). And the motherfucking space, I think I need longer bolts to hold it down.


I went for a drive around the block, out of boost just to get a feel of the car. After 10 seconds in the car, this is all I have to say

The 40 bucks is well worth it. Tuner studio is 1000 times better than Megatune. You've gotten this far, don't be a cheap *** now.

Ok Im having mad ******* issues with the car, and I need help.

1. I have a rather noticeable leak from the feed at the turbo. Wtf, the fitting seems tight enough!

2. The ******* drain interferes with the steering rack. I have a a flange with a 1/2 npt to an adapter for the 10 AN line. Im using this due that the GT25/28 flange does not fit. Im assuming a T3 drain would?

3. Im having a leak from the spacer. I bought longer bolts and Im hoping that would solve the problem.

So close yet so far

There's always going to be a few issues. Just tackle one at a time and you'll be fine.
