I'll give it ~2 months before another inane, small problem arises and a complete teardown ensues again.

This tear down was reasonable. The head needed work and I was tired of being embarassed at the state of things that lie under the hood. I changed my mind one something though, I'm going to order -4 hoses and fittings for the turbo to use the bulkhead thingy. This is a safety issue.

lol, its the life of a 1%'er. You're kind of local, let me know if you ever need help with the MS (per your sig). We're going to Rowlette soon to dyno a few cars.

I'm really starting to get the Megasquirt licked. I finally understand the program after like 5 configuration errors lol. I'll be making a few trips up there for the car shows, but feel free to holler at me anytime. I put my phone number in your PM box The VE analyze along with the LC1 has made tuning so much easier. The old 1.6 runs like a scalded dog compared to day the day I brought it home. It's still naturally aspirated though.

I fixed my fuel table today in about 5 minutes and spent the rest of the time working on enrichments. VEAL is awesome, I can't believe people have a tough time with it considering I screw up almost anything I touch. I'm looking forward to tuning VVT on my daily and letting VEAL do the fuel table work for me so its one less variable to jack with when I'm learning VVT tuning.

I may have to get some tips on tuning from you. I can honestly say the 60 bucks tunerstudio costs is way better than any 60 dollars of blow I've ever gotten.

I made a ricer exhaust video to troll the local board. It sounds like an Evo or something.


I mounted my lap timer too:

5'11", 203lb right now, lol. I'm functionally "fat" when it comes to racing cars.

Ok, remember that thread about decresing VE above 6500 rpm?
Here is this log:
[/QUOTE]
and the MSQ that goes with it:

Maybe the increased PW on the previous tune was a product of either FPR float or this is a product of the new plunum porting.
Here's a different pull, with the cursor on the big numbers:

Soooooooooo I just realized that my LC-1 reset to default numbers and I have to tune the car again. The good news is that I've been running my scary spark table at 12.1-12.6:1 AFR and no detonation, lol.

The LM-Programmer is a miserable utility. Sometimes it saves, sometimes it disregards the change, needs a powercycle to update, can't update on the fly...I might be able to code better than that.

Stories like that make me love my Uego even more. I barely paid attention when I wired it in and it's worked flawlessly since installation. I'm sure it has it's drawbacks, but I haven't found them yet.

Innovate SUCKS.
Plain and simple.
After using an LM2 for a few months, I won't use an innovate product if it was given to me.
AEM UEGO and Zeitronix zt-2 FTW
