i am really looking forward to this next dune trip. not just for the normal reasons ( they are included) but because i have made a few more changes to the rail that will be outstanding.   for starters i got the cold start/ no start issue rung out, was waaaaaay to much cranking fuel. that was part of a pre defined fuel table that came in the ecu for gasoline engines using smaller injectors. also.......i got a chuckle out of this but felt pretty damn stupid after figuring it out......... couple years ago i was having an issue seeing over my hood but only while transitioning over the dune to the right side. so i raised my seats 1.5" and this helped a lot... i had set them for just myself in the beginning as my wife refuses to drive it! so when i did that it was enough to pull my feet back from pedals but no big deal. throttle has 3 positions for the cable which will compensate based on stroke ratio like an eccentric lobe/cam lever. after that i was really never going past 75 yo 80% tps but didn't matter so no biggy right?!?  ;) well last winter while the motor swap was taking place i  pulled the seats and had 2"  extra dense foam added to make them more comfortable  and it really did! it also lifted me up a little  more, so the whole trip to LS i never went beyond 50% tps as a result.  rofl i saw this fact ( once home) on all my data logs, in fact 44% is the most common tps range i used. enemy and doug commented on how far away the pedals were and ya i noticed it but never felt that i had an issue with it. well didn't want to change it to be quite honest lol. so saturday i did....moved the throttle back 2" and brake and clutch 1.5" plus set the throttle up for the highest ratio so now it's 0 to wot in 2" throw of the top of the pedal. prob need to reign that in a bit as that may be to fast. also 2 weeks ago before it got real cold i hit the 30 psi mark on boost, needs more tuning up there but the base fuel table is rich and safe to 30 psi.   to sum this long story up i will be the top 50% of my tps and another 16 psi boost on tap for the next dune trip  ;D ;D rofl rofl

flag, the American flag... We have room for but one language here, and that is
the English language... and we have room for but one sole loyalty and that is a
loyalty to the American people."
