Tinkering with my webers, they love it when I get back there and give them some attention.

Trying to resolve the transition stumble I've had for years. Installed my AFR, leaned the idle jet from 55 to 50, replaced the emulsion tube from F1 to F3 and spent some time with the Idle mixtures to get them as close to 'best lean' as I could.

Got all the AFR's from idle to wide open between 11.5 and 13 but the stumble is still there now between 25-2800, little higher than with the F1 emulsion.

Today will check the distributor and ignition timing and since I have a switch to turn off one MSD, (twin plugs with dual MSD) will turn one off for a test run to see if that makes any difference.

And then wash my hands to get rid of the gas smell and any COVIS in my garage.

Like to see how this plays out for you. I'm having the same issues with my PMOs. AFR readings are the same as yours. Transition is the same as yours also. Keep us posted.

I really like that skid plate! Much more svelte than the stock bit.

With the help of my propane heater, it's cold here in Oregon. Took the webers off cleaned everything. Now waiting for some gaskets and jets from Paul Abbott's recommendation. Should have everything back together and on the car by Monday. No hurry as rain is forecast until about next thursday and I don't drive the car in the wet.

Technically, it's not my car. But if the stars align it may be in my family some day (it is my daughter's boyfriend's boss's car).

1991 Carrera 4 - Amazongrun-pearlcolor. About 90k miles. Before we started it was a hot mess. Rode hard and put away wet.

Full paint correction and interior deep clean. Leif did almost all the work; I just showed him the ropes.

Here's a video of the unveiling (of course it was raining when we finished).

Bought these boxster calipers with adaptors for as much as just the adaptors cost (I cant pass up a deal), cleaned off the fading “Porsche” lettering and laser etched in an old Carrera logo. They’ll go on my 86 Carrera for now until I figure out an actual brake upgrade

Those aren't an "actual" upgrade....?

In terms of weight and brake bias (after removing the rear proportioning valve on a 3.2 Carrera) they’re an “upgrade” but you still use the 24mm Carrera rotor. A proper brake upgrade would be more thermal capacity by using a thicker or larger diameter rotor. I’ve shaved about 300lbs off my car so these will be fine for now!

Took the AC out years ago and finally got around to putting in some window tint that blocks UV's and heat. Put the sidescript on too.

Reiver, where did you get the Porsche sidescript? I like the look.

That ceramic tint is great. I got the "clear" version from our local tint shop, which has a slight blue hue. I wanted to put it on my windshield like my other vehicles but this glass has and continues to take a beating on various rallyes.

I let mine idle yesterday for ~90 minutes while I worked on my Tundra.
Wanted the oil to get hot and burn off any moisture in the engine. I got my wish. LOL.

Did you notice the temp gauge? If you let your car idle with no air flow, it can run pretty hot. It will hit the top red line if you do this in the summer, and could cause damage.
