Waiting in a Boston Hotel for Car to showup. Can't wait to see it backing out of transport. Will supply pics when I get some.

Seller said ready to drive, it will see a 700 miles first day or two. What does 450 hp feel like the first time?

Just turn the boost down all the way, initially.... Hate to see you do some damage on your first boost.

Also, those truck drivers may have fooled around with the boost knob... Always best to turn it down all the way, get a few boosts under your belt, then begin to dial up the HP...

Well made it back home with Car . Emergency brake trouble meant one repair along road. Thanks to Darling Ford/ VW / Audi I was on road within a couple hours.

Car is dusty and in need of a wash, I'll put a shine on it tomorrow and get some pictures.

Car did run a little rough and I think I need some remapping of computer to handle the dense air here at sea level on coast. Will be trying to get hooked up to computer next few days to get some read outs for tuning of AFR.

It's been a little while but when you get a new car getting it legal and on the road seems more important then all else. Had registration and safety inspection to take care of. Picture will follow but Ive been reaching for a wrench and not a camera, then is was finding software, computer with RS-232 port and 9 pin to 15 pin connectors...all takes time.

Car runs good but does seem under powered from stop. I think I have an EMS issue with environmental conditions that are preset on EMS for Nevada. Image below shows "real Time " screen shot of EMS output. I'm I reading this right...the air pressure is being recorded as 52 Kpa when it should be closer to 100 kpa?

Is the blue highlighted number some internal co-efficient that can be pre-set?

In this screenshot the car is running, correct? I see that the software is reading 900+ rpm so I take it the car is at idle? I'm guessing that your kpa reading is a MAP sensor, in which case you would expect to see something near 100kpa with the engine shut off, and something much lower when idling since there will be manifold vacuum.

I see somewhere in the 50kpa range at idle on my innovate datalogger, but my electromotive ignition ECU sees kpa readings in the 30's at the same time. I'm still not sure which one to believe.

I little eye candy for the tuners. This is my engine being tuned by builder 4000 miles ago.

I had some initial issues when delivered but after I got connected to the EMS computer and cleared an error message (throttle position) car is now performing much better.

Boost is still turned down to 0.5 (asked seller to set it lo) but car still push's you back in that seat and eats up a lot of road fast.

I like the florescent orange paint on the headers -- it almost looks like they're glowing!

why are the headers that hot? Is it an indication of a rich mixture? That can't be healthy for anything nearby.

Ben

Just to chime in.... a rich mixture would make the car run cooler because of excess fuel. A lean mixture would be the cause of excess heat.

In the picture above it is common for those to heat up at the point where the collectors and exhaust come together when under full boost (WOT). I'm guessing this was simulating a dyno under a 3rd gear pull to initiate the boost and the heat you are seeing. The motor could have been lean here but I'm guessing with all of the toys he has on this motor (electrical) that they have their AFR's dialed in.

Hope this helps,
Bryan

Ohhh..makes sense about the lean mixture. Still seems odd to see that much heat buildup. I guess with the airflow around the exhaust while driving down the road, the pipes would not get this hot. Is that right?

20-30 seconds wide open and 1600 degree exhaust, all normal. Rare to get to see this on a street car, but sometimes at dusk or night you can catch a glimps before things cool down - don't shut your motor off though.

There's nothing wrong there at all... Great to see it being tuned on an engine dyno, you're one of the few! Looks bloody good to me

in fact a rich condition can also cause the glowing pipes. Fuel burning in the pipes will cause that. The last time I ran around a road coarse was at night and all the guys said my headers were glowing as I went by. A/F ratio in the mid 10's
