    2004 Turbo Regal intro - Dave

    That Holly deal looks really neat, but how does it bolt on? The original has is a two piece plenum, but that only looks like 1 piece.

    Thanks! It could be a rich condition or just lower boost. We played with a lot of stuff. I'm serious about the stock L36 long block. It's bone stock down to the 158k mile valve springs, head gaskets, and head bolts! It's all just boost and fuel system. I would like to do a full valve train...

    Not bad for a completely stock L36 long block! She needs valve springs though. My knock sensors are are worthless too.

    Poly trans mount was a fun installation. It's really not meant for T5 cars, but I made it work. I also have new oil and spark plugs in the car. It's feeling better than it ever has just in time for the big day. Tomorrow is either going to be the end of this car or a new beginning. lol I...

    Brian did an excellent job on the remote tune! The car runs better than it ever has since tearing apart for the turbo conversion. I just ordered poly trans and engine mounts. I may not do the engine mounts, but the wimpy rubber single-studded trans mount has to go. Even though it's brand...

    That's no joke. I did some poking around, and found pictures of his shop. I remember watching videos of Tim King's 8 second Firebird on his dyno among other high powered 3800 cars back when I was in high school! It's going to feel quite surreal whenever I make it up there to see it in person...

    Turbo V6 Camaro

    I got tired of this car limping around unable to be trusted. This tuning stuff is not newbie friendly, and I only seemed to make the car worse. I called Brian Turner at Dyno Tune Motorsports. He's done some work for the 3800 guys over on The Chicago Garage with excellent reviews. Once he...

    Yeah, the calculation doesn't make sense to me either. If I'm lowering the frequency by 20% wouldn't I just up my airflow by the same amount? I'm not sure what I'm missing here.

    Haha to be honest, I'm not that motivated. I'm really happy that I don't need to be in the dash again for a while. I can't remember if this was mentioned before, but my maf is maxing out pretty early. I can only rev the car up to about 4k at wot before needing to shift due to leaning out...

    I think that the AEM X-series boost controller is going to look really cool in place of the Autometer gauge, but I'm a bit too cheap to throw that much money down on something that the car doesn't absolutely need right now. Hence, still having stock wheels with cheap tires! The manual boost...

    I slightly underestimated how poorly I wired the old wideband. I didn't need to cut any wires, but it was still a big enough pain to undo that I'm going to add another connector to the mix just in case I ever need to do this again! That being said, I did not finish the install last night. I...

    How are you going about logging only your PE % diff? That seems kinda similar to what I was trying to do except for zeroing out a bunch of tables to force the ECM into a state where it only really looks at the TPS and MAF. I think the idea was that other variables would throw the error off...

    Isn't recording O/L data how you fine tune the MAF table though? I really don't have any of those initial tuning problems mentioned in the link. My car has already been driving around on E85 with 80# injectors for over a year without any major issues. I'm just trying to dial everything in so...

    Turbo V6 Camaro

    Hey @dezldave961 Do you use HPTuners? I'm finally at the point where I can start tuning this, but I'm getting a lot of mixed information. How do you start? I tried doing this Open Loop Maf Tuning but having an E85 AFR gauge is screwing it all up. My MAF error histogram is showing -36% at...

    Turbo V6 Camaro

    Here's a big positive update. I figured out the cal writing error! I didn't realize that this car had a class 2 data signal running between a few modules including the ABS. Since I deleted ABS, the signal between the PCM and the diagnostic port was broken. Luckily, I still had the module...
