I'm so proud of you !

lol. yeah im proud to now if i can get this thing running as good as it looks it will be even better, we already found 2 vacume leaks and it idles wayyy better, he's setting the tps and then we are going to put it in timing mode. then after that set the AFPR

Way to go Jensen, I'm jealous...my car has been boosted for over two weeks and I still haven't been able to drive it...

Let me know how boost feels...

keo naj wants to go this comming weekend and stay friday saturday and sunday. and yea i know i would have been done but i still had alot of work as i found out today. took 2 hours just to find were all the vacume hoses go make a resurcalating hose and find a pipe that will fit were we need the hose to run, drill a hole in it and make threads for the hose...fun stuff

lol the police just came in wondering what we were doing... they have nuthing better to do. but im good to go

lol^^ i guess now i can officially say i BEAT YOU! sike but to on a serious note i hit boost but it just felt so laggy and slow. i hope after setting the fuel pressure and stuff that it will hit harder..

we still cant get the idle right. it jumps from 1k to 2k rpm in a sweeping motion back and forth constant. wonder what it is

took it for a spin after the tweaks and OMFG! that thing runs like mad. only thing i cant figure out is this wierd 1k to 3k sputter. in between that rpm range it hesitates and we cant figure out y, also my idle will not smooth out. it revs from 1k to 2k over and over and no matter what we do it does not go away. hot engine or cold engine so that prevented us going into timing mode. any ideas

Check ignition stuff plugs, wires, dist, rotor, first. Boost leaks are a good guess too
2009-04-13 09:47:12
i had a similar problem i coulnd't rev over 5k so check and clean out you maf i did that that and hasn't given me a problem since hope this help you out.

Constant rev bounce like your explaining could be IACV, AAC, TB, or vacuum leak.

Pressure test the system like I told your ass last night. If ANY vacuum lines are leaking, you'll hear them.
