You should just come run SM...it would be cheap compared to the money you've spent on this other stuff. The wheel to wheel action makes up for the raw speed. I'd love a class that is basically SM with less limitations...but in reality who is really running PTC? It's not a fun group to run with (in TX anyway).

Can someone look at this MSQ and tell me if I changed something critical?
One, you appear to be using some form of experimental code - does the problem happen on a stable release code? I'm wondering if you have hit a bug in a beta code that hasn't been ironed out. What code are you using?

Two, baro correction is going nuts. Almost looks like you hit a reset when cranking, although I see no other signs of a reset. Try turning it off.

He hit a bug where if both TS and an outside source request different flash pages at the same time, TS gets the same page as the outside source, as the MS2 code can't handle two pages at the same time due to limited memory, and TS can't currently detect if another source is already accessing a flash page.

Hustler do you not have AAA? I think membership is like $75 a year, you should sign up. It is a hell of a lot cheaper then tow bills.

I cna't get over how I basically blew-up an engine I still owe money on and it only went to the track twice, lol. It's a stupid mistake and totally my fault. At this point I have to do something to get the car running which means I need to learn a lot about small electronics to narrow this down to a problem with wiring and electronics, or something else. Then, after that's done, I get to pull the engine and drop another $2k.

Then, after all that's done and paid for, I get to buy another 6-speed for my daily because the one I bought is total **** and I'm ******* furious. Of course, I can't start that until I can get the green car out of my garage.

I don't think it's the computer, everything looks normal on the logs right now, all 4 injectors are squirting fuel, all four plugs are firing, I have 47psi of fuel...the log doesn't lie.

I guess I could rip out all the factory wiring and wire-in this stuff like a racecar and put everything on a switch.

You can't claim tow bills on your car insurance? State Farm has reimbursed me every time I've gotten a car towed.

i have had experience with State Farm and towing in the past, they typically have providers that will direct bill them too so you don't have to come out of pocket at all.

Okay, so the engine is timed, plugs were replaced and clearly show combustion, I have fuel pressure, output test mode shows the injectors are getting signal, composite logger looks good...what do I do next? I don't even know what to do at this point. I can work on it late tonight.

Negative, can't burn the firmware until I get the file (no hurry though since I'm out of town for a few days). I guess I can do that tonight.

Why is it dropping fuel when the combustion starts?
