      Got the UEGO in-

      and for reference, this is what my "information console" used to look like-

      So, after playing with it all day, i had to turn fuel pressure up to 50psi to keep from going stupid lean at idle. it would read "---" (above 18:1) at operating temp idle. so i upped deh pressures to save mah motors. got idle to be a consistent 13.7. WOT= like 10- 11.5. I needs an SAFC... but has no monies. Also learned that if you go below 20 psi... the car doesnt like it so much. idle jumps way up, and then dies. lol. just so you guys know. also that rheostat mod is cool, for like 10 mins until you learn you cant pull or add enough to have any real fun. again, i needs an SAFC.

      thats it for this update. happy tuning kids!
      ps. have a passenger turn the knob, or atleast watch for traffic. its not so safe looking at a gauge, and turning a knob at 60ish mph.

        Alright, long awaited updates-

        rear bar in

        Supportin' the Sphere!

        Fully updated "info console" <3 SAFC tuning

        And just so you guys dont think she is too pretty-

        White bumper is replacement caused by impact with tire barrier... buddy of mine in his Honda get my rear tire just shy of my apexing a corner. Oversteer ensued, bumper got removed by tire barrier. For the most part tho, I was able to pull it out. Never actually "hit" the barrier, just scraped it, and the friction of the tires pulled the bumper off. Didnt break any fenders tho, so I counted my blessings an went to the yard.

        As she sits now. She is getting parked for winter [img]{SMILIES_PATH}/sad.gif[/img] Numbers are from auto x last sunday... err.. 11/18

        And i just thought this pic would be a neat one to take.
