I got a lot of my parts in but ran into a problem with the Perrin FMIC. Wrong piping for the passenger side.

How's the E tuning going?

Got it used for a great price so had to buy lol.

I heard Perrin FMIC is difficult to fit from the Forged build.

The E tune is going slowly. Phatron is out of town this weekend so he has been sending maps when he can. Hopefully we will hit it more this week since the south Florida cruise is this Saturday.

What model is it? I haven't heard of that setup much just people doing surge tanks

Can't wait to see your full blown numbers. How does it feel so far?

It is the 08+ hanger. This makes multiple fuel pumps easier than having to do external pump set ups etc.

Car feels good. We have done one cruise map and I just did a quick 3rd gear pull to 6k RPM. I'm not sure what the method to his madness is this time. I think he might be trying to set my MBc. We normally start at 2nd gear and work our way to 4th gear.

FML. Looks like one step colder plugs are not great with E85 especially if gapping is not correct for it. Going with stock spark plugs. I'm getting at least one misfire per pull.

Fun never ends.

I also decided to ditch the hybrid and go EBCS only. I think using 5/32 tees restricted the flow from the MBC which has 7/32 lines. Instead of waiting to order the special parts cause I can't find any around here I decided to ditch it. The car has been fine on EBCS.

So if anyone is interested, I have a MBC for sale

So WRX02FTW and I finished my spark plugs this morning. Approximately 2 hours due to learning. I gapped last night and double checked this morning. All at .024 w feeler gauges. I went with stock plugs.

The messed up thing was that I pulled my old plugs out and measured them and they were at .044. Not good plus they are one step colder so even worse for E85.

Thanks to Gerry who lend me some swivel sockets, swivel plug socket etc. we used many improvised ways to get to the bolts etc but in the end it was relatively easy. thanks to WRX02FTW for the help.

Thanks to Jdub.csu, Xluben and Phatron for taking all of my questions.

Plugs are a pain compared to something like a Honda, but they're not really that hard. They just take some time (and some bendy tools). For anyone else looking to do it, there are some great pictures here:

If you're doing just the plugs, you don't need to do all of the steps in that guide. A lot of the harder ones pertain specifically to the injectors. Just the plugs won't take nearly as long as plugs and injectors.

It's actually pretty easy if you have the correct tools. About 1.5 hrs for both sides. The rear drivers side proved challenging for me but overall a 4 out of 10.

Rear passenger side was the tough one. Basically used just a socket at the end of an extension and the plug socket to hand tighten. Then we were able to use my 3/8 torque wrench to finish her.

The other three were easy. Used an iPhone as a camera to look at how the plugs were lining up with the hole. WRX02FTW's idea.

any issues? thats a pretty big difference.

EDIT: I just read what you were gapped at before, now that was big, disregard ^post. These cars plugs are really finiky especially on E from my experience. I also tried the one step colder plugs and it just didnt run right and I didnt even need to log to know it.

Just did a cruise log and another 3rd gear pull. It might be a combo of nice weather, E85 and new correctly gapped plugs, but the car is feeling great and smooth.
