    Some questions

    1.Why a fuseable link to the ECM instead of a fuse? 2. If the link burns out shouldn't the insulation melt? 3. I just had mine go out. The orange wire was broken inside the insulation right where it enters the Black cylinder. Is it possible it's just a physical break from years of bending and...

    KR at low boost

    I'm trying to figure out the KR right around 11# of boost. It looks like the actual fuel ratio goes slightly below target but I'm not sure what's going on.

    Bolt specs

    Does anyone know the bolt specs for the bell housing to engine block? Are the bolts supposed to have washers on them? I'm pretty sure they were grade 5 but not sure. I know they're 3/8-16 but what length? 1-1/4"? 1-1/2"?

    Biggie adapter and bad filters

    So I got an RJC biggie oil filter adapter and bought 5 WIX filters. I had never done this before but probably should have, I blew into the center hole on the oil filters to check the anti drain back valve as recommended by RJC and 3 out of the 5 failed! I guess I should have been doing this...

    Tuning advice/questions

    So here are a couple of pulls I made yesterday. The first one I get 3 deg. KR at the same time as a slight spike in RPM. Actual A/F is slightly richer than target A/F. The second no KR. I'm new to tuning with FAST so I'm looking for help in figuring out what's happening. FP rises 1-1 with...

    659 HP @ 21.5 lbs

    I finally got the car on the dyno at Richard Clarks yesterday. Clint was teaching me how to tune it. We got 659 HP @ 21.5 lbs of boost. When we upped the boost we got spark blowout. Need to reduce the gap and also fix a voltage problem as it was just above 12V the whole time. That's through...

    Oil leak

    Shortly after rebuilding my engine last year I developed a rather bad oil leak that was hard to find. Turns out it was from the front of the passenger side valve cover. I had installed TA headers and the flange was so close the edge of the valve cover was hitting it preventing the cover from...

    Window Turbo

    This is ridiculous. I have suffered with slow windows for 30 years. I'd nod off trying to raise the passenger side it was so slow. I replaced the motors once which was a waste of time and money. I've read of other fixes but they were way too time consuming. With skepticism bought a Window...
