I am building three right now.

My 2.5 with Mahle pistons and STI crank for the twin charged wagon.

My 2.2 with stock turbo pistons and T3/T4 turbo for the Sedan.

And a 2.5 with stock STI pistons and small turbo for the daily driver wagon.

It's not quite dead. Change your settings to show all threads in this forum from like... 2 months ago. There just haven't been much updates in the last few days or so.

Not a whole lot going on lately.

Oh, and swaps can be cheap... I have less than $1000 into mine and I've got very few things left that I need (other than a transmission & rear diff).

I think its just that in the spring there are a lot more planning discussions, in the early summer a lot of building and assembling discussions, and by mid to late summer the projects are either done, at an impass, or quietly being fine-tuned.

I'm at the quietly being fine-tuned stage and have nothing to report at the moment that I'm not otherwise too embarassed to admit to. Here's a hint though...

It took me 2 months of playing with my ultimate to understand the importance of running a data log to really see how everything works together.

Had I done this sooner, I would have realized that my injector acceleration map is quite likely the culprit behind many of my open loop fuel delivery problems. I would have also realized that I had my TPS voltage wrong in that WOT for me is 3.0V and not the 3.55V that I had it set at.

I also would have sooner understood why it is that even though my car is otherwise running, that I keep getting a CEL that says "Injector 1 voltage low" and for all 4 injectors.

See, now that's an interesting one that I'm not sure how to solve an here's why. My inputed injector duty cycle from the ECU is at 94% when I'm at about 125 mph or so because the ECU still thinks its trying to control a 220cc injector. In reality, there are 550cc injectors that I have inputed into the proper section of the emanage ultimate software so that the emanage knows what its dealing with. So, the ultimate is telling the bigger injectors to run a duty cycle of around 60% at WOT and 125mph. The result of the lower duty cycle and proportionately low durations is that the emanage is spitting out lower voltages to the injectors and the injectors are then sending their info back to the factory ECU so that the ECU can know that the injectors are working properly. As far as the ECU is concerned, the injectors are failing because they send back voltage readings that are too low and threfore a CEL is triggered to tell me that my car is not working right.

I don't know how to solve this. There is a chance that I have something wired wrong (or not at all) that will fix this but since its really not broke and I'm not done figuring other things out yet, I'm not gonna fix it.

So, tomorrow I load in and test my newest map to see if I fixed anything in the open loop area of my fuel map.

I've been building mine for about 8 months now. Just too lazy to post up any details. Here are a few pics for ya though. I got the rest of my exhaust fabbed up and welded. It's going back together this weekend. I'm just waiting on the hydra now.

come to think of it I have almost everything I need, just missing, or rather not wanting to bite the bullet for eManage Ultimate, and some misc plumbing.

My eyes water just watching that. Of course its not tears of joy, happiness, or envy; its from imagining how it must sting my eyes from being around such a rich exhaust

Not criticizing, just empathizing. I was there a few months ago and am still there every time I start up my non-cat'd 77 Jeep Cherokee with a 360 in it that runs a bit rich.

yea i know it idles rich as hel..my driveway was coated!

i think its a vac. leak cause i have the emanage set to scale back the injectors (370s) and it still idles lumpy..

i also set up the injectors to run pretty rich just so i could drive it safely around my house just to test it out..thats why the black smoke billows out of the exhaust once the BOV opens..screws with the MAF.
