Just when I post in a thread that my car does not miss it starts missing bad . Before I went to the track I changed the plugs and had them gaped to 27. Did a few pulls on the way to the track and all was good.
Now once I got to the track and made my first pass its was missing like crazy . Thinking it was rich miss, I turned up the boost from 20 to 22 . No go on that, car was missing really bad still. So I pull the plugs and check the gap. WTF 3 of them were at 30+ and 1 was at 27. So I knock them all down to 25, thinking it should clean every thing up. Nope it was still missing but not as bad. I ended up running a [email protected] on that pass. So on the next pass, I think maybe I will try turning down the boost and see if that will help. Nope same shit but still ended up running a [email protected] on 21psi.
I am thinking that the cold was really fucking with the car but also liking it(mph). It was in the mid 50s tonight and today when I was doing some pulls it was in the upper 60s. I think tonight was the coldest temps I have ever ran the car in. Most of the time its in the upper 70s to low 80s. Maybe e85 in cold weather just needs a much smaller gap. Say around 22.
Oh well I had fun and the car is still running at the end up the year. Time to put it away for its winter hibernation.

Awww winter hibernation. That's no fun, but atleast she can be put away with her wheels on. No JSB for you haha. I wonder why you were breaking up so bad. I hadn't had any problems with e85 on a colder day such as30 degrees, except when the engine isn't up to full temp. Its dumb to beat on her when she isn't warm anyways but yeah. I'm curious why it was breaking up. I guess its just bad luck that you'd talk about stock ignition being the cats pajamas and then get effed. In theory maybe with it being colder the gas didn't atomize enough giving bad combustion.

Don't know what the deal was. It was doing fine before I went to the track. I did some 30+psi pulls and it never missed once. Then when I get to the track about and make my first run(about 2HR later)its missing. It also could be that because it was a lot cooler the car was just making a far amount more power. I should have just dropped my plug gap down to 20-22 but I did not want to pull them out again. So I just said fuck it and called it a night.

What was your timing like? If it's to far retarded it will miss to. It sounds almost like spark blow out but more consistant. It will also widen your gap some.

Well after knocking my plug gaps down to .021 it fixed the problem. The nice denser charge was just to much for the .025 gap. This just goes to show how stupid you become when you don't take your car to the track that much and just drive it in nice warm weather.

Oh on a plus note my little 3052 is now holding 35psi up to 6800rpms and falling down to 32psi and holding in this cold weather. It maybe time to put it back on the dyno and see what it can do at 32psi with the cooler air.

Sucks about the last time at the track for the year not going as planned. Any plans for changes over winter or are you keeping the setup the same?

Hey moron. Brian and I are friends. Even in real life, not just the internet, OMG. My reply was in response to him talking about never having any ignition breakup with his COP setup in a thread just a couple days before he had these issues. I guess you wouldn't understand, Mr. Serious.

On a serious note the .15 gapping thing is interesting. I may try it. Usually the gap widens with use, but I'm worried the gap would do something stupid like close on me haha.

Hey moron. Did you ever sit back and look at yourself? Not only do you do it to people you dont know but you do it to your friends. Its an all the time thing with you. Everytime I see the name turbowop, its something sarcastic, rude, or just plain childish. Congrats on you being a tool both online in person. I hope you feel like you accomplish alot. I can already tell that your just some schmoe probably still living at home with mommy/daddy, single (not even a household pet), and your life REVOLVES around whats on the internet. SAD!

And the e-thug award goes to...

If you ask the right questions Mark has a wealth of knowledge that he will gladly share. After *years* of being a resident of this board, his patience for stupidity is low. You are fighting a battle you can never win. You should seriously just give up.

Well I may take it to the track one more time. I have tell Oct 30th as that is the last night the track is open. But being the PNW the rain is here so we will see.
I would have liked to run the QTP but just never got the time to get them back from my friend. Oh well there is always next year.

Hey Mark your a big ass hole. Shame on you for giving me shit. Just for that I am going to push you off a cliff this winter. That will teach you to be a ass to your friends

OMG serious business




I don't think you realize just how bad you fail in everything you said in that rant. Not only am I one of the most helpful people on this board, I also post all kinds of shit about my life not related to cars, including buying my house, my dogs, skiing, etc. All you can do is claim some 4th place title in the nation at driving in a video game? Better than your fail at cars, I guess. When are you going to do your reverse leakdown test?

That pretty much what your joke of an existence has become on this board.

Quit being such a whiny bitch about everything. First you cry that people should only make fun of others they "know", then when Wop makes fun of someone he actually knows you still get butt hurt about it.
