If you've already purchased it, then nevermind, but I made a heatsink out copper sheet (for roofing) and cut it using tin snips and drilled a hole in the center. It's a lot cheaper but ghetto. I can see from your build you do it right. LOL Let me know if you find out good settings for the launch control.

Well i do some things right, and other things im pissed i did the way i did. This is what thia summer will correct.

In fact Reid - that is the way Bosch recommends to do it on the sensor specifications. As you know copper dissipates heat far better than SS. ... i went out and looked again. Its almost dead nuts perfect at 3 o'clock (parallel to ground) so I'm guessing that is a big factor because if water gets into sensor its not getting out till it's boiled out

As for the settings for launch control, Junior set me up today, if he chimes in ill let him spill the computer settings but i was at 2psi today, but i think i will pull a little more timing and see what that gets me. It kinda pooped out a little on the three launches i did that i think went well.

Im nearly out of tables and i think FFS will fill the final slot. Kelly - does yours have more than 12 table slots? Im guessing Antons is the same

Oops!!! Took apart a buddies motor thus weekend. He said when it died, it died.

one rod had beaten so much stuff that it looked worse than those rods from the west coast Tuning fiasco.

If it was easy, everyone would be doing it. Final conundrum of the swap. I think it should still work, just running the 4 position wires from the 04 to the single of the 06. As long as the resistances inside the position switch are the same, should be no problem. If it is, a 06 switch would be an easy swap.

Track indeed. Once we get this launch control situation figured out I'm excited to go back.

Richard showed me the advantages of brake boosting today. Car is fricking loving the warm weather. No boost cut issues and scoots right along

E85 tune scheduled for the 17th of June.

Gotta do some small things before then.

Oil change
Boost leak test
Check / change plugs
Grab some corn fuel and migrate south to visit the P & L crew and Junior.
Tinker with knock control some more. I still dont like how its working. Working 5 14hr days has taken its toll on my motivation level when i finally get home Friday

Yeah, weather looks sketchy! Keep me posted if you're going. If my girlfriend is working tomorrow I may come and join you, weather dependent of course.

I'm in Carleton, MI right now and not quite 3 hours away from MMMP, so I don't want to make the drive if it's going to get rained out. I was kind of hoping to have my DSS stuff installed before track time!

True story! The Meijer's E85 I've tested was 82% at it's lowest with the winter blend. I just try to buy their E85 if I can.

Keep me posted on tomorrow guys! If you go, what time are you planning to get there?

Track day weight, plus me @ 225 fully dressed.

Full tank of fuel
Full interior
No spare tire
Jack going in dumpster at the track
Battery full size but rear mounted
Aluminum DS
Stock wheels with 245/40 DWS (should grip well in this effing rain :rollseyes: )

Ironically enough the 04 STi from the factory has a 1893 and 1380 split.
3260+225 = 3485

The cost of doing things right is astounding. Just to get Teflon fuel lines in the trunk to the exterior of the car was almost $400. That was with summit brand because i couldn't justify 600+ for Earl's. oh well.

I think I'm going to fabricate up a fuel cooler that mounts in hood scoop location because i Have the extra fittings and hose.

Anything with teflon is pricey! Are you doing this because your current lines are not E85 compatible?

They are E85 compatible however they are also permeable, and I'm tired of smelling gas in the cabin.

It's also going to allow me to change the way everything is ran; right now it is spread out way too far. The reason I did not change it before is because I was just trying to get it done in the way I had it worked. Now that I can afford ( both time and money) to get nitpicky I am. I want to get my fuel trace sitting up near the seats and parallel to the back rest, and get my y block after the pumps back up into the cabin.

I have already found one thing that I wish I would have purchased different though. No matter how many times I build it sitting there looking at it I always seem to be one or two fittings off. In this particular case I think a 45 would have worked better than a 90. Having said that at $20 a piece I cant afford to just swap them out.
