Quoting fuel:

Awesome! I only asked about your VR-4 the other day on FB as I came across your videos again (of course, I had to watch them all again including the Figgy ones).




Thank you sir, I appreciate that very much! And regarding the t-case, thank you for mentioning that, I do plan on using my old iron one that I had in the old Talon.

I love all of your cars but must admit there's a soft spot for the Mitsu's. Personally I like the way you went back to your roots with the videos. Especially if it means there will be less time between updates. I know with a job and a family there isn't much free time to do things like this. Damn priorities.

Thank you for the kind support as always my friend! Yeah, car shenanigans are definitely limited with three young kids, work, my demanding basket weaving hobby, etc. Wrenching is still the best way that I've found to clear my mind.

Great video, as always, Tom.
How did the ecmlink estimates look compared to the dyno results? I'd love to see a before and after log.

Pretty good numbers for pump gas. Was the methanol injection system being used during these runs?

Be sure to go post your dyno sheet here so I can update the data in the list: click

Thank you for the kind words and support guys! I wish I would've spent a little more time in the video talking about the logs after each run, heck we didn't even have the ECMLink horsepower estimate selected. It was just a hectic day. I was running water/methanol injection, but I have a very small nozzle in there at the moment and a simple on/off boost switch. I'm going to work on improving that setup a bit by adding a rising rate controller and a second nozzle.
