    ECM Reset

    Hello all. Wanted to see if any of you had seen this problem as I have seen it on my own personal car as well as several customer cars. Check out this datalog below. As you can see there is a single frame where the ECM resets itself. You see RPM drop to nothing, and the same with the TPS and...

    Intercooler Hoses - Why they matter in restoration work

    Hello all. RC and I have been working a few cars where the directive from the customer is to "present the car in factory or showroom condition." As you all know Richard (and now I for that matter) can be very picky when it comes to original parts. So when a customer had supplied us with...

    Water in kick panel area! MAL 51! Stalling in traffic! Seems related somehow?

    Time to let Bob off the hook on this one! For a while I suspected something wrong with my powerlogger that was causing me major headaches. I kept running into an issue where the car would stall for seemingly no reason. While sitting in traffic it would just shut off and eventually I'd get the...

    F$%$ (Turbosaver oil lines)

    I am using the PTE turbosaver on my car. When we rebuilt the engine I used some high pressure hose from NAPA and used hose clamps on both ends over the hose in combination with the push lock fitting. I was informed that this could be detrimental since the design was meant to be used only with...

    No not the brown kind :D... Tuning with my Maft Pro and extender pro chip. Ecm is in full time open loop, maft is closed with an lc1 wideband. Still struggling to understand the thing. I tuned the mainscale to lowest average correction factor at cruise. This is tough to do in the hills of...

    three dead alternators

    Hey all. The car started acting up this weekend. TPS voltage was higher than I remember setting it to. Reset it to .44 and the car ran ok. Yesterday the tps is all over the place and the car would stumble and run super rich and die out at stoplights. Checked the battery voltage and it started...

    Oil Filter Findings.

    So the car has sat for about a month until friday night. Finished up putting the new Rad in and switching exhaust housing back from a garrett to a Precision. I also changed the oil. The oil in the pan looked good. no shavings or anything. No hint of coolant or anything. Cut open the filter using...

    PTE Turbosaver line routing.

    I have an embarrassingly dumb question to ask. I wrote it down before the lines, checked and double checked but now that I have acquired the ridiculously hard to find oil lines for my PTE turbosaver I just want to be triply sure. How are the lines routed? Is it OUT from the oil pump IN to the...

    little smokey

    uh oh! Noticed a little puff of smoke and oil smell when I reversed into my driveway a couple days ago and coming to a stop at idle today. I have occasionally noticed little whiffs of burnt oil smell once or twice before figured it was just my leaky turbo drain. Today happened once and couldnt...

    Im getting ready to add another accessory that will need a constant 12v supply. I refuse to run a wire to the battery because I hate the way that looks so I will look to power it somewhere off the fuse box. However, while I was quickly rooting around under there today I realized my alky power...

    Header Gussets

    My Poston (I think they're poston) have cracked again on the driver side. A few posts mention welding a gusset to prevent future cracking. Does anyone have pictures or an illustration that I could show to a local welder so I can have that done?

    Continuous Logging with PL?

    Is there any way to get the powerlogger to record continuously? The files are so small and the PL software so light it shouldnt be too hard to get hardware small enough to hide behind the dash. There would need to be a way for PL to automatically boot and start recording every time the car is...

    Arm Rest, Billet Shift Knob, Cam Button, Taylor Wires, etc..

    Hey all. Here's some junk leftover after converting my car to tr6 and bringing the interior back to stock. The coil pack is a Duralast I got from Autozone in January. Has about 1000 miles on it. Worked fine, its a good backup to keep in the trunk. Taylor Wires are a little dirty but work great...

    Dual Fuel pump senders available?

    Hey guys. I have an older Racetronix dual fuel setup on my car and it is great! The only thing is that I'd like to replace my fuel lines and use AN line to get away from the stock stuff that costs too much. The problem is that Racetronix does not appear to be selling bare senders. Anyone know a...
