Thanks guys, she's a never ending project.

Now, if I could just get this MS3 Basic to idle properly I'd be happy... Momentarily

Pete can't seem to get it to idle smoothly no matter what he adjusts. He says it's acting like Albert's was. Perhaps a firmware reflash is in order

I'll email you.

The MS3s never need a reflash, something else is up.

So, I decided to take the MSM to the drag strip tonight for ***** and giggles. I ran a total of 7 times, experiencing misshifts and grinding both 2nd & 4th gear on all but this one run.. 19psi on daily 225 RS3's with 35psi cold tire pressure. I think I did pretty good considering its been 5 plus year's since my last time at the drag strip and it a purpose built HPDE car. Here's the time slip..

I honestly don't see myself taking the car back to the drag strip again. I feel so bad for my poor transmission... You honestly had to be there. It was bad...

What's your hp at 19psi?

I went to watch last Friday with my kids and wanted to be on track after seeing some modded cars only doing 14's.. Anything with a 12 in it and I'd be happy. I'm only and 11psi on a 2860 and Kumho ASX 205's so I'm not sure I'd be there

congrats and good job. 115 is quick, it's so hard to drag race these cars.

115 is really quick! I know how you feel about the transmission. Launching these cars is not fun. Love the car though

Just read the whole thread. Long bumpy road, congrats on the progress. You thinking about flex fuel?

Thank you, no flex fuel plans at the moment. I was thinking about putting an AEM V2 Water/Methanol injection kit on to help with temps but I haven't made up my mind.

I took a look at the MSQ on Frankb's MS3 from you this past weekend. The first thing I noticed that the IDLE VE table was turned off. So I turned that back on. It may not fix all his problems, but it sure as hell will make tuning fuel easier.

It's just a MS3 basic with the option for sequential injection, digital wideband, obd2 and a 3 bar MAP.

Well, I got a little bit of some disappointing news today. I finally got the car to a Dyno and I was hoping for some better numbers but here they are:

321.24 max power / 305.02 max torque at 19.5psi. My A/F ratio can still be tweaked a bit. I was sitting around 10.6:1 at full boost. The Dyno was having issues picking up the Fab9 COPs spark signal so the RPMs are alittle inaccurate. The bottom graph shows the power compared to MPH vs RPM for reference. The pulls were in 4th gear with a 7800RPM redline.

321whp, huh? I could have sworn it felt like 324whp so I'm sure the dyno is off a bit.

Was the car any better regarding overheating on the way home?
