Thanks!

Toms car however goes well beyond what I have done with mine as far as the countless hours of fabricating he has done for his fuel system etc. Not too mention doing all the work himself, I have my identical twin brother helping me lol!

Seriously wanting to see some curves Tom!

I got a question for you Tom. Are you running a check valve between your in line fuel pump and the fuel rails? My fuel pump instructions recommend it.

No, I have no check valves. When my pump first comes on it runs at 100% duty for a few seconds just like stock. I figured that there was little reason to modify the stock logic so I baked it right into my setup.

I have about 600 miles on the motor so far and things seem to be going well. My tune date is May 18th which is less than two weeks. I still have to put my meth system back together between now and then but thats about it.

Glad things are going well. It was great seeing you and Molly . What I found most amazing about your car is that it shows very little exterior signs that it is a 500 whp monster. Molly's reaction to Tyler's dreadlocks was hysterical LOL !

LOL, to Molly at Ty! Yeah, the exterior of the car is by design. I dont want any extra attention. STi's aren't exactly sleepers but the power of my car should at lest be unexpected.

I other news, I finally fixed the electronics issues with my meth system. You guys may recall me posting this pict from New Years Eve:



My original high speed meth valve wasn't looking too good so I ordered a replacement. Unfortunately I discovered that the new style valves are not compatible with the Hydramist v8. I didn't figure this out immediately and I struggled off and on for months trying figure out what was going on. It took an email from Phil @ Element to get things straitened out which is what I should have done from the very beginning.

I spent a few hours today swapping the terminals out on the original valve above and reverting the wiring back to the way I had it last year. When all was said and done the kit worked perfectly and I couldn't be happier.

Holy crap, you guys have to see this! I was looking for a source to buy meth and I came across this:

man that is cheap and near a life time supply. The government might question your motives for buying it but eh.

Also keep up the good, glad to see the meth system working again and eagerly awaiting the tune

Well folks, it looks like the party is over. The car started smoking form the tail pipe at startup tonight and I quickly diagnosed it as fuel smoke. I pulled the plugs and the passenger side look perfect but the drivers side show that there's a major issue. The drivers side is super rich and the passenger side is lean. What could cause something like this? Here's a pict of my passenger side plugs:

Possible fuel distribution issue? Did you do a comp test at all to see if the cylinders are ok?

I am not 100% sure. When I drive the car on the interstate the WBO2 is right on target in the 13s and 14s. I was told that the car smoked just ever so slightly as I gently pulled away from a guy in a parking lot the other day after an hour long drive.

I can say for sure that the car SEEMS to be much leaner after its been driven verses letting it idle for 10 min.

When I first discovered the issue I was upset to the point where I couldn't work on the car. After all the crap I have been through I just cant believe I am staring the problem cycle all over again.

To answer your questions; No, I did not compression test the car but I suppose that's in my immediate future.

I am pretty sure that its not a fuel distribution issue because the feed path is so simple. On the other hand, it could be a fuel return issue which is the only reasonable thing that I can think of. I am not sure how but I suppose its possible that the fuel return line coming off of the drivers side fuel rail got pinched somewhere under the air conditioning or alternator.

Could it be as the tune is not perfect yet it's causing an uneven burn somehow? Odd that it's just one side.

I a pretty sure that its not a tuning related issue. Here's a list of the ideas running through my mind:

-Pinched fuel return line from the drivers side rail
-Debris stuck in both of those injectors
-Electrical issue causing problems with both of those coil packs
-Some kind of issue with the cams/head/valves on that side
-Timing belt issue
