    1986 T Type WH1 64000 Miles

    I hope it did, for my sake. I love the WH1s and I don't need another car.

    Fully restored 87 Turbo T, Dark Blue W02

    This answer tells me this is legit! Anyone who has ever done this more than once either has mental issues or is a sadist!

    inconsistent surge. hard to pinpoint the problem.

    Soy based plastic is the main reason. It is "environmentally" friendly but that makes it also "digestively" friendly to rodents.

    Lesson learned

    Laughing at that straight and beautiful of a GN is a capitol offense. I'm glad you kilt him. I really get a kick of of the dip$hits that can't/ don't recognize drag radials when they see them. I didn't put these tires on my car because I was afraid they'd grip too well...I put them on...

    It leaned out a little, I was at 10.9 with 24 PSI when I got the KNR...I know all cars like different stuff, what target AFR should I be using to stay "safe"?

    Tuning Questions

    Well, KNR came back. I got to 24 PSI (my goal) and the KNR showed up so I subtracted another degree to get to -3.2 * in 3/4 and still had 1.2 degrees of KNR. I then turned it down another degree to -4.2 degrees, made another run and still had 1.2 degrees of KNR. Now in my mind if I have 1.2...

    Tuning Questions

    So here is what I got: I pulled the plugs. They all looked consistent and good...according to my limited knowledge and google skills...plugs looked a little rich but I knew that. Changed the plugs while they were out and gapped at about .32. Tested with the same setup as before and same...

    Tuning Questions

    Well I said hammer it but I'm probably rolling into it in second...should I be waiting until third to do so? I like to take the center of the three lanes before getting into it in case anything crazy happens I have a lot of room in either direction. I"m probably at 35 by the time this...

    Tuning Questions

    I should have I turning down the timing to see if is false knock? I'm asking because with regards to the previous heat soak comment, the runs were probably less than two minutes apart. I waited for traffic on a 6 lane divided hwy to clear, busted a u-turn and hammered it. I then...

    Tuning Questions

    With my fuel at its default and 20 PSI I was super rich, like sitting at 9.5 to 9.7. So, you think I should turn it back up, timing down and start from there? I haven't looked at my plugs in a while but I'm a novice when it comes to plugs...not really sure what I'm looking at or for. I do...

    Tuning Questions

    Don Cruz installed my kit and set it up, he had it set it at 4. I tried turning it up to 6 as I had read Julio's posts saying that is the normal starting point and usually works on most cars. So I turned it to 6 and had the same pattern of KNR. If the general consensus is 6, then I'll turn it...

    Tuning Questions

    Here they are. The "quick save" file shows the small periods of KNR. I hadn't thought of heat soak...they were probably within at most two minutes apart. I just thought it was weird how whenever I got was on multiple different tries it always looked the same, quick spike then tapered...

    Tuning Questions

    Okay, I think this is the right forum... I've recently decided I'm finally going to get my car running better. I've never really had a chance to tune as every time I got stuff "right" something else would go wrong. My combo is in the sig and is current/accurate. I currently have the Alky...

    Exhaust system concerns with high power?

    I have first hand experience....I had the boost set at 18 pound I thought. What I actually had was a hole in the vacuum line in the waste gate actuator coupled with a terrible exhaust...that would only let build 18 pounds of boost. The waste gate actuator was never opening because it never...

    First kill.... glad it was against something worthy...

    You GN guys have it made...the menacing black car lets people know whats up.. A white t-type can hardly buy a race around Kidding but not. My DD is a 13 Focus hatchback. In the Focus its a Mustang on the right and a ricer on the left. In the Buick its a minivan on the right and a...

    Why do diesels think they are the only ones with boost?

    Wait a're saying they have five friends? Must be in a truck club to have that many and be that douchey...
