Holy crap I never updated this...

Lets see... I got the car running on the Greddy kit with FMU & O2 Clamp. It worked okay, but I didn't like the mid 12 AFR's up top with the Tan top injectors...

I also had a misfire that was giving me some issues, I think because the coilpack got wet. So I made up a COP conversion..



Then I had a friend's shop make me up a 2.5" exhaust to mate to the TurboTony downpipe... Its pretty much the same as a DP6061 exhaust.


Picked up an autopower roll bar, threw that in, and made an obnoxious cover for it.


I got a great deal on a half finished DIYPnP, along with some RX7 550 injectors, and retuned it, and eliminated the AFM... Also picked up a PLX Wideband.



I was able to get to 150whp and 140wtq with the DIYPnP on the dyno, but I was seeing 200 degree intake temps due to no intercooler on a 90+ degree day & weak dyno fans, so I had to finish up the tuning on the street.

I also couldn't take the awful chalkboard paint anymore, so my friend let me use the booth at their shop and I painted it flat black with autozone paint shop paint...




Here's two shots on the dyno...



Oh, and I wanted to be able to Datalog without the laptop, so I modded my tombstone to hold my tablet, and got a Bluetooth Serial dongle for datalogging. I still need to get a TTL converter so it works reliably though...



Did my first long distance road rally in August, with no issues at all... Even after going 200 miles in 2 hours including a fuel stop... Spent 100+ miles over 5000 RPMs in fifth gear, and over 20 miles straight over 6000 rpms... Car took it like a champ.



That's about it for the rest of the year... This year, I haven't done anything other than change the oil and drive it... I did go to my friend's shop's dyno day last weekend, and they made me throw it up on the rollers...



Not too shabby. I love the torque curve, even though its a little low. I'm very conservative on my timing since I beat the crap out of the car so much... I'll be adding an intercooler soon...

I think that about covers it for now.
