belly up bar
For my '87 5kcstq w/127k mi.: (no rebuild, orig turbo)
According to my Approximator (dash computer), my max bar lately has been
1.2. Previously, it was 1.3. Hmmm...
I recently had a tune up by an audi pro, new intercooler & some other
new vacuum hoses, new radiator, thermostat, VW/Audi coolant. Also it
now runs a bit hotter at freeway speeds--before new rad. & therm. it
would be only 1/3 over on guage; now it's @ halfway point.
The only real performance problem I have always had is a kooky idle,
probably a bad ISV? Idles too high when cold/damp; with this 80 degree
weather now idles a wee too low, as if it wants to stall out.
Not sure if all this is related, but thought I'd include it. Maybe just
the computer's wacked. I want to get this all hunky dory since I plan
on buying Steve Mockrey's chip--but only if in tip top shape.
