    Hopefully I'll be going back to the track this week, maybe I'll convince him to come take more pics lol.


    Well, I ordered a new clamp for the intercooler boot at the turbo itself, wasn't a great clamp setup I had at that spot. Well 19 psi was all that clamp was good for lol. I ment to change it this morning. But forgot. Changed now.

    Installed new fuel pumps. Dual walbro 450s in the tank. Didn't fit real well lol. Kinda a pain to install. But in and working. Between those and the 1500 cc injectors I have allz the fuel now. Turned it up to 19 psi on about 79% e. New turbo is working really well. Still working on launch control via the tune. Hopefully I'll get to the track Wednesday or Fridays test and tune and get a better run in then last time. I have no doubts I will lol, figured out all the boost cut issues I was having last time. Not only was my boost gauge/controller cutting me off but I didn't realize in the tune we had setup ignition cut at 18psi from when I was running pump 93.

    I also added an external battery switch per the track tech guys. I installed a hitch on the car, and mounted the switch to a receiver. Pulled a trunk plug in the floor and ran wires via a quick disconnect through floor to switch for while I'm at the track, not at the track pull reciever and wires and reinstall trunk plug.

    Been a slow few weeks. Got hurt at work and I've been off since the 14th with a back injury. Could hardly walk, couldn't stand etc. Finally feeling a little better, but far from right.



    So I hooked a switch to engage a second rev limiter and timing retard. Still struggling with pushing through the brakes to launch. I had the switch on the shifter handle. So I had to release the switch and the brake pedal at the same time. That was alot harder then it seemed lol. I struggled through a few launches not timing the release the same.

    The ecm needs to see a ground signal to activate the 2nd rev limit, so I wired a relay off the brake light switch to convert the + signal to a - to activate it through a push button. Apparently my LCM doesn't like that. Every time i hit the brake pedal my lights freak out and I can hear a relay in the LCM go nuts. So I'll have to revisit that.

    Had to pull my trans out (prior to getting hurt) to replace the TC seal, it was dripping since install. Hopefully that's now taken care of.

    I also got my class glass hood a few weeks ago, had a buddy come by yesterday to help install with my son. Fit decent. Need to install the aerocatches and get the dodge hood struts installed, but its atleast sitting in place.

    Attended a local cars and coffee. Hadnt really driven the car in a few weeks, Felt good to get out in it. Made a few adjustments on the tune. Lowered my wot shift rpm and boost setting so it'll spool faster. Liked the changes.

    I like it from inside the car, being I can see through the vents. And I like that it covers the wipers a bit looking from the front. I think my other hood looked more aggressive, but I think overall I like the new hood more.

    Swapped the marauder for the Jeep for the weekend, swapped them back out earlier, promptly blew a intercooler boot pulling out of the lot lol.


    Got a new trans cooler today, still fighting higher Temps then I'd like. During install I plan to verify ignition timing.

    Also verified my timing. It's 2-3 degrees off. So that's good to know so I can adjust that in the tune.
