One day i need a ride in the dumpster fire.
This is interesting as I didn't know about this! I am extremely curious how this will affect us. I have long tubes with a catted H pipe. While I run cats I know it isn't legal. I wonder how this will affect companies such as vortech, kenne bell, ect for guys that need tuning after an install. I'm assuming guys would need to get a cleaner tune, which may result in a loss of power to do it, while running MIL since the tuner can no longer shut it off legally.From my understanding the lawsuit has disallowed SCT end users to adjust EPA parameters on the handheld themselves, but I am not sue if it effects pro racer or professional tuner capabilities to change emissions things.
Seems appropriate, glad it's not this one.AWAKEN. AWAKEN.
The dumpsterfire awakens from its winter slumber.
Prepared everything for some datalogging tomorrow. Fresh tune with some tweaks to driveability loaded, new datalogging file to watch dashpot and idle behavior. Checked all the fluids. I expected it to be low on some, especially given I saw a puddle under it earlier. Opened the intercooler filler. Spilled everywhere. Guess it was full. Cracked open the crossover fill. Still held pressure from damn near 6 months ago! Fuel pressure is good. Electrical works.
Tomorrow is for datalogging. If/when I'm happy with the tip out and return to idle behavior, next big step is upping the fuel system to the 25psi capable one. Sumped tank, fuelab external pump, deadhead return system, all new lines, 95 lb/hr injectors. Then we can see what KILL MODE is like.
Minor project: Making a sight glass for the intercooler reservoir during the week.
Let's hope weather cooperates.
Cliff's notes version:Great wright up, I just wish I better understood how this whole tuning thing works. I really haven't gotten into tuning myself yet. I'm very interested in it and love reading about it. Just not sure if I will ever trust myself to do it.
