Well, I fitted the the 1.8 bar spring (thanks Charlie!) today.. grounded the
fuel pump relay for now.. I'll probably add a relay later to keep the factory
fuel cutoff after the engine quits.
I've gotten used to 6psi.. thought that was fast. I'm running a K24 with a
bypass valve right now and with the stock boost I could always hear that
great turbo whislte (wssssssshhhhhh) and then a nice "psssssh" on shifts.
Now I think people standing 100 feet away can hear it!
1st gear starts from a standing stop are now much more dramatic. Second gear
is a lot less patient then it used to be :-)
Only problem is I somehow managed to goof up my idle.. I can't hear the ISV
buzzing away with ignition on so I probably messed that up somewhere along
the line. I'll play with it more tommorow.
Amazingly the mixture seems to stay at or above stoich at WOT which is good.
I won't push the boost up any higher for now until the EFI box goes in. At
which point some kind of cockpit adjustment for the wastegate will probably
go in :-)
87 4ktq (getting faster and faster)
88 90q (feeling slower and slower)
