maft sucks for drivability and power IMO. I'm on speed density, but not with the ecmlink kit (i would consider that if i had stock wiring). I'm using an AEM 3.5bar & GM IAT. I have a spare set of 3 bolt non-LSD axles if you want 'em. haha

My aem was backfeeding voltage through sensors, so unless aem can fix it i'll never plug it into a car again. It fried my AEM 5 bar.

my car with v2.5 & 2g maf has good driveability, a buddy has maft with v3 (used to be 2.5) and it's not terrible, even though it obviously has limitations (like reporting the same IAT no matter what, not handling rain/weather shifts well, etc).

That said, V3 seems to be the hotness so far. I can't believe how well the car runs with some base settings locked in like this.

I would be running v3 with gm maf, as that's what I have and my car is setup for.

yeah they're 235/45-17. I have a set of 245/40-17 to put on the car, but I need to make sure everything is set to they're not going to rub the way the suspension is... $20 tires I bought from Scawt years ago? Don't care. $1k michelins? Do care.

The 1g belongs to John Wood. Auto car that runs mid 9's. Cleaned up pretty well at that event.

It was a "street car" event with a 1600ft straight for drag racing. No Autocross. Cars were allowed to start from a dig or do roll starts. A lot of really fast cars were there apparently, but John's 1g turned some heads as most people think DSMs are garbage and just break down all the time.

I wanted to go, but it's a 3hr drive and I had stuff going on here to do. That, and the forecast showed a lot of rain, which did end up happening, keeping the really fast guys from doing anything on Saturday.

John's car is ridiculous. On the little 6266 he went [email protected], he showed up at the event on the FP3794 He lost a roll race by about the amount the other car jumped him, but he also forgot to hold down the nitrous (usually only uses it to get on the stall). First roll race the car ever did and it was against a 1000 WHP nitrous ZR1... The videos of the event are hilarious every time he comes up on another car it just crushes them- even Lucas English's 880WHP CTS-V looks like it must be powered by gerbils.

I had lucas get a base tune on the car and I was making passes slowly increasing boost until I got to a happy safe limit @ 24psi. Only run I was even to the point the car was dialed on was with a BMW 2002 with an AP1 S2k swap (1800lb, 230hp) and it's hilarious He got a bit of a jump (40mph roll on 2.0 w/T67 = zero boost. I need to try brake boosting), but as soon as I got boost it was over

I need to get some good pics of the car, including underhood. Right now there's some hacky shit since I did a 3AM rewire of the secondary fuel pump before the event and it's not as tidy as I'd like



I may need some more fuel, and while I think the airflow numbers are optimistic, I can't wait to get on a dyno. If those are even close, it's ridiculous for 92 octane chevron. I will say the car has some slight traction issues in 1st & 2nd which makes me

Couple new pics, just from my phone. Newer, better real camera pics coming soonish.




Also clay barred and waxed the car yesterday, and did a full clean & condition of the seats & whatnot. Actually doesn't look half bad anymore.

Thanks Brett... the car has come a long way and my wife and others comment on how nice it is, but after 10+ years I know the car and all the flaws and they jump out at me. I think it is a pretty good 10-20' car personally, but then I can show you all the paint chips, dings, and things I wish I'd done better. It doesn't help that I've seen/ridden in/been around 1051 since I've owned the car, and Mark has IMO set a bar that's worth all of us working towards.

Ed: me too, even if they get a bit of haterade for being "on every galant ever". They're reasonably light, look good, and you need to be able to see the big ass brakes if you want to win on the show car circuit.

Thanks for the kind words guys, I will try to get some good pictures soon. I'm hoping for good weather next (18-20th) weekend, as English Racing is doing a dyno day, but I don't want to drive to portland and back in nasty weather.

So I haven't driven the car in over six months due to being busy, but i was watching the video I made and I've definitely got some jonesing to get it out from under the cover.

If you haven't seen the video before (don't remember if I posted it in some other thread, but it's not in this one):

#461/1000 bit of 2nd & 3rd gear

mostly looks like this these days though....
