    1. Air coming out of oil cap, ONLY AT IDLE!! WTF

      In the same manner that a hydraulic cylinder seal seals. No pressure on it and fluid runs out of it. Add pressure and it stops leaking.

      My oil cap dances around on mine at idle. I know it is...

      Whomp whomp. I had a exhaust tick develop a few days back and progressively get louder. I had hoped it was the homemade blank on the external WG flange I made. So this morning it was obviously worse...

      Exactly. I'll "wring out" a pair of gloves like if they were wet and shoes or boots will get a few body slams.

      Something I missed previously was the timing retard parameter during the logs. These 1,2,3,4 retard categories were all the way to the right end of the .pdf. There was in fact a correlation with the...

      I'll have a look into it. At this point I don't see myself forking over the money for a new tune and surely not double for self tuning. Although doing it myself is likely what I'll be doing when the...

      Putting all back together...

      Picture time.

      I ordered a set of billet hose fittings that are 1Ē hose barb (16AN) by 3/4Ē NPT. Also found a flange that was close to fitting the hybrid sump and it is a 1/2Ē NPT.

      Stock...

      I see why the Holset isnít as popular on gassers now. The surge line on most every chart is straight which equates to a lot of boost as soon as you cross that onset threshold. Looks nice and smooth...

      Are looking to actually use that much air? If not, could I sway you to the something thats rated to glow 46lb/min at similar boost levels for a third of the price. It just has a steeper surge line....

      Putting all back together...

      So I looked over my log with 2 pulls I had made yesterday and noticed a few things.

      1) 28psi boost came on and topped out the MAP sensor around 3600rpm but this is not needed for fueling. No...

      Got with my tuning people and everything is OK. Boost pressure I'm running is above stock MAP capabilities so they suggest a 3bar MAP. Injectors running about 75-80% so that's good, too. I forgot...

      Nice encounter. This is why you should carry a handgun in the woods. It doesn't matter what size or caliber really, if nothing else but for the loud noise it makes.
