Thanks, yea ive got alot of money in this beast, i must have put atleast over 20,000km on it last summer. I love driving/cruising. Almost every part is pretty much brand new or has been changed on this thing, the only thing i think i might blow this summer is my 5 speed with 30lbs. Last year i was pushin 20lbs at the end and she held up so im crossing my fingers if not 6 speed or the quaife gearing from FM.

No my blocks not built. Not sure how the 440's are doin it but they are and its actually runnin quite rich so apparently they are able to supply enough fuel. I havn't touched or messed with the tune on my car at all since I bought it. I need you guys to show me the ropes with MS...

Sweet, do you know how to get the ebc working? I could never get mine to work properly (more like at all). I tested my solenoid and it checked out as good.

I have a Link not a MS but I know how to tune cars, it's pretty simple. Cspence it's not recomended to run injectors past 80% duty and I know 440's max out at 230-240hp. You might be running them fine now but they could lock on you for over running them, unless you raise the fuel pressure.

I use a MBC. i have heard nothing but bad things about the EBC in megasquirt so I havent bothered.

I currently started selling PNP kits for ford TFI cars. . . specifically merkur xr's. I love getting cars runnin on ms.

Good deal! I'd really appreciate it dude. I've just been too nervous to screw something which is why I havn't tried to learn myself. I also have a set of COPS sitting in my garage ready to go but I need to have some **** adjusted to make them work when the car is cold. If I run the motor and warm it up, then swap the cops on they'll work but for some reason if I try them when the motor is cold it just cranks and cranks.....which is why I've been runnin the stock coil/wires

Maybe I'll look into getting a fpr or some larger injectors....I've been meaning to pick up a dual feed rail too....I'm gonna keep an eye out for a used Tuner Toys, FM, or Vishnu rail and 550's

Lets get some updates (broke the 50 degree mark so I was putting in some work)! I went through and made some sense of my engine compartment:

Before

After

Before

After


Now I am waiting for new intercooler and piping. Then I can rework the downpipe and possibly move the wastegate with dump tube. Also I need to rewire my lc1.

I hope to take care of the test pipe issue this week, as well as the driver side window regulator.

I should be able to get everything I need to get done within the next couple weeks.
