Havent updated much..

car had been popping under boost... discovered a bad coil... then a burnt lead... changed the leading coils and daaaaaaaaaaaaaamn.... 1-3rd.. last couple of psssssh were third gear trying to get traction... then lost the clutch hahah

[YouTube]https://youtu.be/4jqX5hh2wC8[/YouTube]

the ring on the clutch coil fell off allowing the bearing to pull out of clutch... aka no pedal.. had a spare (original) that I threw in as I had a couple of car shows on sunday...

well on the way to the second show I lost the clutch again... had to drive 30 miles home with no clutch.. the 7 sets of traffic lights were fun haha as was crossing the freeway using the starter and first gear hahaha


luckily I remembered I had bought a new bearing and a buddy picked up a new cage locally (didnt throw in on weekend as we were doing suspension and exhaust on a mates wifes rx7)

Well saturday started on a crap note.. heading to my sons soccer game with plans to hit the dyno after for 3 pulls for $30... 5miles from home pulling a 3rd gear log and lost the clutch pedal for the 3rd time in 3 weeks.. had just replaced the throwout bearing and little clutch ring/cage.. raced home after soccer and fixed the clutch... little over an hr to pull the little ring etc, straighten and fix, fix a starter bolt that stripped, put it all together, screw in a bolt in place of the clutch pedal stop... I think the clutch was over pushing so stopping the pedal travel may have fixed it.. thanks again @kevin_btz for problem solving across country.. hit the dyno after a quick little sprint 40miles to event.. ended up with 412hp 385tq on a mustang dyno.. low boost as the diaphragm is leaking on wastegate and didnt log so not sure what boost.. going from previous logs it dropped to 14-16psi... aiming for 20 or maybe 25psi.. and the car made it home.. yay

2020 strikes..

had some sort of power surge... blew ecu, rear LEDs, stereo, bunch of fuses and a couple of gauges...

Now I need an ecu, Head unit.. tuner was already pushing the ecu idea so now its settled... aem infinity.. would love to add a cd-7 dash but already this repair is going to be about $3k+ so that wont be happening...

car is now officially parked and about to get pushed into corner of the garage till winter where we will strip the interior and a bunch of the wiring out... then redo a bunch of my crappy effort..

What caused that kind of spike you think? Did your regulator take a crap?

Be interesting to see the AEM build take shape - is that where its at at the moment for standalones? It was all about Link over here when I was running a 13bt.

not sure if its the way.. builder/tuner is pushing it for ease of tuning and wider range of info to tune better

we think the alternator took a shit and spiked the system
