I think I ended up with a bad mid pipe.

I pulled down an average of 29.2mpg on the way to Thunderhill in my full interior NB1, everything stock except for the K&N panel in the airbox and a BP6D manifold.



Where is your red state god now!?

I have hit 32mpg or so with my 6speed and 4.10 rear end on long stretches of I95 doing 70mph.

123whp on the Mustang which sucks, but not aweful considering the 99 intake. Torque was cray as hell. I should have the sheet later this week when it gets emailed.

Why only 6200rpm?

Oh ****, thanks. He sent the wrong dyno sheet apparently. I'm going back over there to do some more dyno work on it in the next few weeks. For some reason this car did not want to take spark below 5000rpm, I guess it's all that cam angle...it makes great torque though.

Edit:
It could be something with the calibration on the dyno because we used wheel-speed rather than spark since we always have a hard time getting signal with COPS and Magnecore wires. When we calibrate wheel speed at 3000rpm I rarely get it perfect. Close, but not perfect.

Edit 2:
Yes, there is some rinky-dink stuff I need to clean-up in that spark table. 4

Then your power number is actually higher than reported. Because the dyno measures torque then converts to hp. You should just be able to rescale the x axis then recalculate power in excel. At worst you can just do a conversion factor to get peak power, what did you actually rev out to? 7K?

I drove the car at Harris Hill which is very, very bumpy. I need to get rid of this RB swaybar but other than that, scratchy 3rd gear, and 600-treadwear tires this car is pretty fun and eats the bumps-up soooooo well.

I had to jack with idle again, it never ends since I'm not using AC in the day, not at night.

The car idles perfectly with the AC off. When the AC is off the engine returns to idle fine, then I get severe oscillation. What should I adjust? It appears that no PID changes remedy the AC related idle fluctuation. Time to switch to two-stage idle control?

Super Commuter is deceased. More details to come. Goodnight sweet prince.

Edit: Everyone is safe, no bodily harm done nor any legal liabilities. Now, the guts go to Johnwag, hopefully into a racecar or something. Kind of sad, but all good things must come to an end when you vote Republican.

I thought you were talking about the CAAD and I was super ******* worried that you were going to go hang yourself.
