How are you doing your engine management?...
Oh and have you seen the cyl 4 cooling mod ?
If you haven't lookn that up in you tube.. it's good for keeping cyl 4 from running hotter than the others and is super simple.

I have never seen a cooling kit like this.  I will have to check the temp of #4 cylinder after a hard run.  Thanks

really good info there!!

had no idea cyl 4 was a hot spot. so since sand rails dont have heater cores ( most dont) one could tap the thermostat housing. i didn't catch which side of the heater core they were tapping. as in feed or return.

Must have missed this. I am using Haltech Elite 1000. I don't give a sh*t what John from Outfront Motorsports says, the Haltech does work on a sandcar. I will watch your video on the #4 cylinder.  Thanks.

ANY engine management will work IF the tuner knows his stuff. Some just better than others. FWIW,I have a few doubts about John. I've ridden 2 cars tuned by him and I wasn't impressed with their drivability  smoothness. Almost like WOT was all that really mattered. nHell,I guess that applies to a LOT of tuners.

Will YOU be able to look at the tuning maps after Chris does your tune? Will YOU be able to log some runs and make the tweaks needed for best performance/drivability? That is something that won't be addressed on the dyno.When I got my car back from Chris I had a big hole right in the middle of the map where one cell had a very low value in it. The map looked like a grid of space with a black hole in it. If I had not been able to view it I would have had no way to fix it. I'm NOT knocking Chris but that should not have happened . Period.
