thanks for the compliments as i know i love the look of the car and am glad other like the car as that means alot to me as since i was a young guy i always wanted a sports car that looked excotic and i think i have don it . i have been working on getting the mufflers tucked up and away so i have good ground clearance and are hidden from sight and right now it looks like they are going in at a 45 degree angle

Nice. You know, that Mark can tune remotely. You have wifi, hook up your computer and have him work his magic.

I would need to go out and do some logging driving it on the street not really the smart thing to do on the street running it up 7000 rpm going through the gears i know doing that is fun as i have done it in the past but try not to do that stuff anymore i like to go to the race track to do that but the drag strip is just as far away as Mark is

anyone running a megasquirt 3x can i ask what you set the gain at for your knock sensor i have set mine all to .5 as i had the gain to high and just sitting and running the car and reving it was setting off the knock sensor and retarding the timing but i know they should be a bit different for each cylinder as they are closer or further away from the knock sensor

Not sure this will help anyone but i was messing around with the Water/methanol control on the megasquirt 3x and i found i had the Hz set wrong for the solenoid as i had it to high so it was not running the solenoid on lower duty cycle like 30 percent duty so i was not getting any injection at 5 pounds of boost but now that i have it working right i can make a map of how much water/meth i need at x amount of boost and rpm giving me a better methanol delivery for better performance

this is almost the finished look of the car exterior except rockers and maybe some black accents in the door cove area

chassis dynamometer is all picked up and in my shop i have much to do to get it running most of it is cleaning it up and making it pretty . I have talked to some who have the same dyno they say you can do up to around 500 whp that will cover what i want to do

Must be nice having a personal dyno. :D

Post subject:  Re: ABZ Fiero

it was cheap but it will do what i want as it is a old smog dyno with eddy brake, i need to spend $800 for software and data acquisition / brake controller and i have a 20 + foot camper trailer given to me the camper is junk ut the frame is strong and in great shape for mounting this dyno so i can travel with it and dyno a car if someone wants and the car owner can tune it or try to tune it

Since i bought the dyno i have been feeling like a little kid as i can't wait to get the fiero up on my new toy to tune it

Post subject:  Re: ABZ Fiero

today i got after it on striping the camper body off the trailer it is now off and just the floor is left but i think that will rip right off with the truck in 4 wheel low and a strap hooked on and just rip away it will be dyno ready soon
