Re: Do you have any other hobbies?

Recently I have been working on assembling a 3d printer and getting it working. I have done a lot of design work at my internship and at school with Inventor and Solidworks, respectively. I am currently in the process of making some real, functional, and printable NACA ducts and vortex generators. A...

Re: DIY PNP Megasquirt Launch Control

I'm not sure what you mean Supa, but the new (3.3.1) firmware took away the "cut X sparks from Y spark events" part of launch control for some reason.

Re: Adam's build thread. Update: Where I have been.

Look at that...20K with auto x events and still lasted. Proves to show that a good tune on a stock block is reliable. Good work Adam. It could have lasted even longer. It had detonation on those cylinders, my best guess is the injectors weren't flowing what they were supposed to. I always had idle ...

Re: Adam's build thread. Update: Where I have been.

Stock block? I did not see you mention anything but I'd be happy with the length of time it lasted. It was a stock block. I think I put around 20k on it with the turbo. It was a hard 20k. I'm not too upset about it. If there was E85 available here it would be getting g rebuilt with high compression...

So I haven't been here in a long time, and there is a good reason for that: I have had little to no free time. Between school and my internship I have barely had time to sleep, let alone goof off. But some bad news: I blew up the KA. I'm not sure what happened, I was driving normal one day and the k...

Re: N/A KA is happening

^^^^^beer can this is true! I've heard of s2000 owners losing 20+hp just by adding a cheap "performance" cat back system. No back pressure is good for turbos but na needs a little for exhaust scavenging. Being na you're gonna need to squeeze power from everywhere that is hindering it. As mentioned....

The GSLender firmware ignores the IAT on cranking. You should try it, it has great idle control also.

Drilled out injectors are crap 90% of the time.
