try running fuel only first to see if the MS spark is the issue.

Thanks to some MS help from neogenesis... I'm up and running Got car to start up and idle on the 550s without an IAC. Fixed coolant leak also. It's basically ready to drive... but down at buddies warehouse up on his car trailer... which takes 2 people to get it down.

Oh... I took video and fresh pictures of bay... but forgot the usb cable attached to the MS in the car... so it'll have to wait.

So I'll have it down and tuning tomorrow night... or sometime this week.. or something like that...

It's ALIVE!

hey if you are using the map I posted, I am not sure how accurate it is, I have a newer one that is a bit more updated, but still not quite there. You gotta change it to .msq though before loading as our uploader does not accept .msq files.

Right now I am running around 12 psi, and fairly rich in boost (around 11:1) and I have had to retard the ignition timing a bit to keep it from pinging on Cali gas in the heat, should be better than the other map I posted though.

That map ran a bit funky for me. Ignitor started getting hot and tach started glitching.

I did however... pull the car outta the warehouse and pull back in on it. Sounds mean and the clutch engagement is quite sudden.

Anyways... quick MS startup video... its off of a digital camera... so not the greatest video.
And some updated pictures of the bay.






This one when clicked on... is larger.


Video audio sucks... I'll get some better ones.

It was first startup in over 6 months... HLAs needed some oil time

Sounded much nicer last night when I drove it in/out of warehouse. Once I find time... I'll be down there for tuning.
