You most certainly did pass! She still likes climbing up on it.

Though installation would need to wait until I can get this piece of **** out of my garage:




Didn't quite get finished wiring up everything yesterday, wife thought she was going into labor. False alarm. Plan to pick things back up tonight after work.

Good news: wideband, CAN module, and OBDII plug are all wired in to the Megasquirt. Bad news: I was unable to get the narrow band out the manifold. I was trying to go from the top, but ran out of daylight. Hopefully I'll have time tomorrow to push the car to more level ground, put it on jack stands, and mess with it from underneath.

Default And now the moment none of you have been waiting for: My Not a Build Thread

Got everything wired up, but got this when trying to set up the CAN module for my AEM Wideband:



Going to send an email to Andrew, but I'm guessing I somehow messed up on the wiring? Pretty bummed, was hoping to get tuning.

Edit: already got a response from Andrew! Might get this car running tonight after all. Props for great CS.

CAN Module issue still isn't resolved, so I hooked up the analog wideband output so I can work on the car in the interim. However, when I connected through Tunerstudio my AFR was freaking out. I tried to revert all the settings I changed getting the CAN Module set up, but I guess I missed something? Any suggestions would be appreciated.

EDIT: I suppose it helps to select a wideband calibration. Car starts, but does not idle. Can keep it running with throttle but seems to run really rich at lower RPMs, then leans out. Of course, this is with basically zero load. Have errands to run, but will get back at it later today.

Success! Got idle to an acceptable level. Main hangup was with hot restarts, but have it idling pretty steady at around 875 RPM. Did a little VEAL, will do some more over the course of this weekend.

Unfortunately I failed at saving a log, oh well. Haven't messed with acceleration enrichments at all, but that's on the to-do list. The real test will be the cold start tomorrow morning.

Hooray! Got the CAN module working. Tunerstudio was changing some settings after I clicked OK in one of the dialog boxes. Now I can start tuning in earnest... After buying a new minivan and having another kid. *sigh*

More goodies:

No kill like overkill.

Sorry for being faster than you Aidan.

Speaking of Aidan, he was quite the Rotrex evangelist over in the PDX thread at CR. Has me considering it again. Not thrilled with most of the TDR kit though, which would make it more of a DIY project that I'd really like.

In other news, I should be trading my BRG for a pickup this weekend. Then I'll be free to dispose of the parts car and have my garage back!

Be honest, you left your computer logged in allowing your soon-to-be fiancée to sully your internet reputation.

Change in plans, going to stay N/A for a while longer. Figured it would be better/safer for me to learn track driving with safe, linear power.

However, FI is in the longer term plans. To that end, I am doing a thing:
Shiny!

Sticking with stock cams, so not much point revving high enough for SUBs to be necessary. At least that's what I got from Emilio's "Engine building ideas" thread.

I've admitted I have a problem, which I've heard is the first step.

I'm curious to see where I end up power-wise. Hoping for 150 at least, going to be handicapped by my low-compression block.

that's the first step but also the 10th step on your 20 step plan to boost
initially you realize you have a problem
then you realize the problem is much bigger than you thought
