Quoting ApexHunter:

What was your weapon of choice for goo removal?

Yes, many theories as to how and why, and i haven't been able to draw any great conclusions.

Gospel down in socal is to run 91 every few tanks, as slugs was saying. Thing is, there are quite a few people who are a goo-free who never do that. Fuel quality so far seems to be most logical. I mean, if they stay clean when using 2 stations, but then you venture off the range and start sampling some other stuff and have problems, seems kinda obvious that it was something with the other fuel, or maybe lack of equipment maintenance.

I don't fucks with the e85 yet, partly because goo. But Flex Fuel tech has been calling my name for the last few months...




I just used a toothbrush and gasoline to remove the goo. All the buildup on my injectors was external. The baskets and pintles were completely clean.

My personal experience with the goo says is comes from a shitty pump. Whether that's the equipment itself (tanks, pump, etc) that degrades the fuel quality or the actual quality of the fuel itself before it hits the tank (or perhaps a combination of both), I think your goo problem will be hit or miss depending on the station itself.

Goo or not, swapping to E85 is still the best thing I've even done to the car performance wise. I'd still highly recommend it if it's available in your area. I can remove 3 bolts and access the injectors on my car, so maintaining them isn't a big deal for me personally. I don't even have to crack open the fuel system.





Quoting biglady112:

Here are your answers as to what the goo is. It was done by a dsmer who used to live here but, has since moved to texas. He is a chemist. Real analysis inside.

Yeah, I've read that thread before as well. It's funny you post it, because I just read it again recently after I found goo in my injectors. I appreciate the link.

I've read tons of other stuff online as to the causes of the goo. Here's another good one that was started here: click

Still, out of all the stuff I've read I've still only seen good theories about why it occurs. I've yet to see anything definitive, and I think that's probably because the causes of goo vary a great deal. What I do find to be common is some people who run E85 that don't have goo issues don't fuel their cars at a wide variety of places. One of Scott's posts suggested this as well: click

After reading Scott's post, and a few others implying the same thing, I'll be limiting where I fuel my car to see if I can prove/disprove the theory.

after digging through the whole thread, the apparent answer from the chemist is interesting and worth sticking straight in the thread here IMO

Quote:

Alright, I finished my analysis of this stuff, and my finding is very unexpected. I think it will probably surprise everyone else as well. This doesn't appear to be forming because ethanol is "such a good solvent" but because ethanol is a poor solvent. I suppose it should have been obvious when others said that it "washes right off with gasoline". Why would something that ethanol is selectively dissolving wash off with gasoline? If this were something in rubber or from our fuel tanks, wouldn't that imply that gasoline would dissolve it even more readily than E85?

Alright, so what is this stuff? It is a appears to be a very large petroleum based hydrocarbon, similar to Vaseline. There isn't a single hetero-atom in the molecule (ie, the entire molecule is comprised of hydrogens and carbons), but the molecule is very large. It is also completely aliphatic (ie, only single bonds in the structure - no double or triple bonds). Where did it come from? I can only think of two different sources it could be coming from. It is either something that is mixed in with the rubber hoses that is meant to dissolve away in the gasoline, or it is a trace impurity in the 15% gasoline that is in E85 that wasn't separated during the fractional distillation process. Because it is such a large molecule, it wouldn't be very soluble in ethanol and could easily crash out of solution at the injector.




So it seems like the quality of the 15% is really the issue here.

I got some wrenching done on the car recently. Started with an in-car cam swap. I'm on a HKS 264/272 combo now.





Out with the Magnus SMIM and in with the Magnus V3.





After plenty of ass pain I finally got the V3 to fit. The thing is absolutely huge. I had to relocate my fuel filter because it was too close to the throttle body. As a result, my fuel lines no longer fit, so I've got new ones on order. Once those come in, I should be up and running again.

Alright, got the fuel line situation worked out, and relocated the filter. Used the handy-dandy ECMlink fuel pump activation feature to check for leaks and verify base fuel pressure, and was all good there.

Then, I slapped the boost leak tester on and checked for leaks. Fixed a leak at the J-pipe flange, and the BISS O-ring, but after that the car held 30psi solid.

I hit the key and the car fired right up. After it was warm, I made a few adjustments to the BISS and got it idling nice and smooth. I took it out for a drive and it ran just as smooth. There's no loss in low end torque that I can tell, and the top end has obviously improved greatly. With the addition of cams (I was on stockers before) in conjunction with the V3, it's hard to tell exactly how each part is improving top end. However, it's clear the car is much more potent near redline, whereas it seemed to fall off previously.

I need to make some minor adjustments to the tune, but overall the car still runs awesome. The fall weather here has been awesome as well, and driving the Galant around in it is great. Here's few pics I took while out test driving around today:

well it runs, but it's still in dayton at my buddies. i am hoping to get it on the 5th or the 6th of november. the move has slowed everything down as i haven't had a job since we got here and as of the 15th i started my retired life job of the trailer park manager. i collect rent, make deposits and contact the maintenance man if anyone needs anything. i also have 2 spaces available that i try to rent for the owner.

Well, I finally made the jump and swapped the tune to speed density. I've got the car dialed in great at idle and cruise.

I have some work to do at WOT still, though. I'm running out of injector on the top end, so until I can upgrade I'm going to hold out on completely dialing in the car. For now, I just turned the boost down on the top end to avoid leaning the car out. Even on low boost it runs awesome, though. I feel like it runs much better than it did on the MAF.

In the mean time, I'll be on the lookout for a set of FIC 1650 High-Z injectors to get the fuel system back up to par.

When I was still running a MAF, I had the MAP sensor wired into the stock narrow band O2 sensor plug. I then used my WBO2 to simulate the narrow band O2.

Now that I ditched the MAF, it opened up the IAT and Baro ECU inputs. With the MAF gone, you can simply use the plug and play speed density cable to run both the MAP and IAT sensors. Just plug the cable into the old MAF plug and you're good to go. The cable is available from ECMlink: click

Ok I'm just having a problem with my map sensor. I put on a new sensor and pig tail. Got rid of all the useless splices and now the car won't run at all. Double check all the wires and I have them were the old wiring was. It ran before but would die periodically.

More updates for Olsen.

1650s are in, and the tune is mostly dialed in. I have a bit of work to do to the VE table during spool up, but the car is running great.

First impressions of the 1650 High-Z injectors are AWESOME. Amazing driveability, and superb performance up top. Idle and cruise are smooth as butter, and I'd think the car had stock 450s in it if I didn't know any better.

I've got lots of good stuff in store for 1837.

I'll start with my fuel situation. I recently upgraded to FIC 1650s, and believe I'm running out of pump @ 30PSI. So, I picked up an Aeromotive A1000 to run in series with my in-tank Aeromotive Stealth 340. I got everything installed, and flipped on the system to check for leaks. Sadly, the A1000 was slightly leaking fuel from the power terminals. So, I pulled it off and sent it in to Aeromotive for service. I'm hoping to have it back sometime next week.





Next up, drivetrain upgrades! I finished picking up the remaining parts I needed to install my Shep trans. I'll be swapping in an ACT release bearing, as well as a new Competition Clutch forged steel release fork & pivot ball. I also grabbed some solid shifter base bushings to make shifting a bit crisper. Hopefully, all this combined with the stage 2 Shep trans makes for some quick shifts.





Last but not least, future turbo setup: FP3052 and Tial 44mm wastegate





Now, just have to find time to put all this stuff on...
