Chassis and Suspension / Re: DS a-arm kit information needed.

btw , only half the order showed while i was at the dunes. received an e mail that the rest shipped today.

No problem at all, have not had a chance to get started on this yet here either. We are going to stripping one of the rails later this week. We have to get the engine pulled and into the frame that is getting the a-arm kit so lots to do yet.

More importantly, how was the dune trip?

the 20 psi range is the weird part.

the dune trip..... i laid the first tracks out the gate wens a.m.!  weather was perfect, learned my engines mechanical timing was retarded prob 8* and has been 3 years   :m i've often wondered why the exh manifold was glowing red sometimes  :m only seen that 3 time to be honest and always on night runs which i have made to many of with it.  everything was great up to locking up my megasand transaxle. had to pull the axles on the side of the dune to get a tow back.  not really upset about that as i knew that trans was on borrowed time. nothing better then cv grease out in the sand  :m i run with a fantastic group of duners that all came to help and block traffic. big thanks to all and you all know who you are!  what gets me is that a new 2d is $7k and only rated for 350/350 ! when one considers you can buy a built e40d for a f350 diesel for $4500 that is rated for 1200 ft lbs tq......the mendi just doesn't seem worth it  ;) ;D weighing my options on what to do as i will have to cut my suspension cradle off to install a mendi as it's 2" narrower which will change my engine mounts too.  i know a cvt won't take my engine at 30 psi boost and don't know that i want to turn it down either.    now, got home sat, unpacked the perishables. thunderstorm broke out early sun morning. wife went out to finish unloading the new custom toyhauler sun morning....... this is how my sun morning went and i cut that hole in the wall to find the water leak . https://rumble.com/embed/vlobjl/?pub=4

on the turbo 2.3 the stock inj's were 35lb and factory set for 14 psi with prem fuel switch on. guys run 18 psi on them all the time with a base psi of 43.  so i find it very odd that you only have a 20 psi window no matter the base pressure. that would lead me to believe that your pressure reg is to blame.  not sure and i assume you swapped the fuel filter to be sure it wasn't plugged or near plugged. are you running the vam meter off the stock lima 2.3 system? i ask as this sounds like an issue with the old mass air flow system. almost like your rising rate fuel reg has a ceiling it cannot get past.

I did clean the filter out as well so that is good. Before we discovered the fuel blockage I did change out the regulator from one of our EcoBoost cars as I thought that may have been causing the issue. So the regulator is one from a running boosted car. It is odd how at 2 different base pressure settings it hits a wall after a 20lb increase on boost, it acts like it wants more but it just runs out enough fuel supply.  But I questioned the injectors just couldn't keep up. And I wondered if that was causing the lazy feeling as well as it first comes on boost to. This engine still has alot more potential if we could just get past whatever is running it out of fuel. It is night and day compared to when we started but its definitely not rite yet.
I hadn't even thought to check the plug gap, they were put in by the engine builder so I didnt think of that, I'll give them a look.
And it is using the stock vam, I keep staring at that eye sore and wondering if its hindering this project. Would be nice to know for sure if that was causing the issues for sure before looking into other options.
I want to double check the timing so I'll check the plug gaps when I do that to and report back.
Thanks

Ok, it looks like one year out.  I can go up to Sept. of next year and it shows a lot of spots open, but this spring, nada

All of Cowboy is open May 23-27, but that is about all I can find as well..

just out of curiosity, what did you gap the plugs at?
