Just put the miotta on active insurance... weather looks like crap this weekend... but I'll try to get the partial throttle tuning under way.

Left to do before this first drive:
Reinstall VC
Install/setup Catchcan setup
New coolant overflow
mount/secure ducting between IC/Rad
swap door lock cylinders

A rare pic of both cars in the garage, I give the wife full access to the other slot.



On a happy note... for those that saw the datalog post... I took it out and it didn't explode!

More to come.

Dave I know this is totally irrelevant and not important but you've really gotta trim that front cut in your nose to follow the detail in the bumper.

Heh. I dun wanna!

I'm also considering adding some hole saw openings right to the middle of the bumper... and when I do a bumper bar under there... mount my oil cooler right behind the middle of the bumper.

Ok, last one because I'm crappin' up your build thread. But this was my inspiration when I said evo-esque... and now you've got a proper IC

Yes, working too much and rebellion has set in. I'd be fired if it weren't for self employment. 4 hours gone and about 1 hours work to show for it (not included your pro-bono photoshop work ).

I take it you had it at AMS for the dyno, or are they tuning it?

Neither. Was heading out for a meeting point for a local boards drag day meet.... rain drove everyone off. I used it as an excuse to drive the car around.

I'm tuning the car myself. I'll probably get it on a local shops new dyno dynamics setup.

Cool, I see now. I was going to ask their dyno rates (but I suppose I can just look on the website) since the last local dyno closed last year, and AMS isn't too far away.
