Thanks for the welcome, both friendly and others. No softy here. Combat VET. and on heavy medication. VA is good. I'm also from Oklahoma, moved to LA 3 years ago when the Air Guard said I could retire. Just want to get the 93 turbo MSMPNP with AEM failsafe working. I am not familiar with all this new stuff. Where are the carbs, distributor?? My Son has the Smurf 92 and is doing very well in the NE SCCA solo stuff. Me I'm a road-racer. Sure would like to have a program I could load and just go for the MS.

It should come with a basemap and there is an autotune feature in Tuner Studio (one of the programs you can use to manipulate the MS) that tunes your fuel map to match your desired air/fuel ratio. You just turn it on and drive the car around and it will fine tune your VE (fuel) map.

You will still need to do some manual fine tuning of your idle settings, just like when setting a new carb on an engine.

Thank you Sir. I am still in the study stage so as to understand the MS.

What's a cat? as in Catalytic converter?
Photos have been uploaded for your viewing pleasure!
Max is inspecting the new brakes for Smurf here. Cracker's first week at her new home, and just a little device to ward off evil doers.

Cat. (Noun): A small domesticated carnivorous mammal (Felis catus), with soft fur, a short snout, and retractile claws.



The cat says "meow, ************".

Welcome to the forum! What are your plans for the car?

Do you want to do track days anytime soon?
Plans for the Cracker: Better clutch and Lighter flywheel, 8.8 Ford or a torsen if I can find one priced right. Suspension blah blah.

Where do we have track days? I thought Road Atlanta (been there)was close. I have been to College Station Texas, Hallett, OK. Topeka, Ks Airdrome in Hutchinson, Ks., Colorado..

Road Atlanta, Roebling Road, Sebring, Barber Motorsports Park, Homestead-Miami Speedway, Daytona, Palm Beach International Raceway, and you are probably close enough to go to the new one in New Orleans.
