Deeper gearing in the dunes would be useless.

and thats why the rubber band models are so popular. ;D

well she fired off last night. a big thanks to enemy for stopping by and sync'ing the cas system for timing. jacked the rear up and ran it in each gear a few minutes each for a no load break in. did it just to insure oil gets in between each tooth.  i do need to adjust the shifter a bit, not a surprise. idles very smooth also has a verrry peppy throttle. cold start up idles at 1200 rpm and advances timing  a touch.  during cold/high idle the turbo is howling like it's on the verge of lighting   ;D i guess having all 4 exh ports sealed to the exh manifold really makes a diff on turbo response  rofl rofl  the new to me head out flows the old one a bit as well. had to pull some fuel in the idle cells and i do need to say that is not surprising. that doesnt mean i will lose bottom end it just means i should've realized the worsening exh leak sooner and stopped altering the tune based on an 02 sensor that wasn't reading correctly!

Brian,

I'm looking forward to seeing all of the progress you've made on the car.  I really need to get my suspension dialed now as you will lose me in the trails even easier, not that it was difficult before... kick   :m

Are you running your tune in open or closed loop?

open loop. i altered the fuel map as it was leaning up. i also used autotune. about the 3rd time ad had to add fuel ins the idle and low load cells i really started to wonder and started looking. the last trip down i knew it was leaking and that i had a safe tune so i ran it. i knew i would be tearing it aparts anyway so why not.  closed loop would be nice on 1 hand but i havent had enough tune time to get there.

old head and cam combo produce 21" vac at idle according to the map sensor. new cam/head combo produces 19.9" vac. now i have a feeling if i advance the cam i can get it back to 21" . i will run this a while before changing as it needs some run time. we are expecting snow again thurs night and sat plus it poured last night. to wet and cold to make any decent runs right now. imo anything over 18" vac is doing pretty good.  i also need to run a cold comp test to see if that has changed from previous before making any changes. previous was 195psi weakest and 200 psi strongest.

Youbetcha!! If it runs like the Ranger did, it will be quite a rowdy tank! Can't wait to go for a ride!!
 The latest beta firmware on the MS3 fixed all the PID issues with closed loop fueling, lots are raving about how well it works now. Not on official release yet, but expected this Spring! I am trying it with my new combo when the fuel tables are finished, but only for cruise and low load stuff, keep the boost stuff open loop for safety reasons.

i hope to burn 10 gals ( bare min) through it before the dune trip!   closed loop always sounds great.  so another interesting fyi....67% ethy = much easier start ups  ;D  started and ran to operating temp a total of 3 times yesterday. fires up noticeably easier on 67 vs 83%  :m

I received an email from LS state park, only asking that I bring my own food as to not deplete the local resource, and enjoy my stay.
Cool.
 Don't care the situation of this smoke-mirrors, flu/cold/fart season, economy crashing, viral media frenzy social conditioning insane asylum... Social Distance (tm) yourselves into a fetal position in the basement if any like, yall's choice. I finally got a better education to the tune strategy in the rail, and it is getting perky, I will run backroads to the dunes if needed, still going. Fuk I need to go smash throttle...

Ok, rant off.

btw i can attest to enemys rail running better!  a very snappy throttle. mine is tons better but needs some test and tune time. i need time on the sand where i can load it down better than on the pavement back this way.
