Just for fun, you could try a couple cans of brake cleaner. With the dust shield off, the engine running, and the clutch disk disengaged... spray the crap out it (maybe pre-soak it too). See if it will spin itself clean, just a tiny bit. (just don't stick your finger in there) I'm sure there will st...

What gives? I thought the ACT 4 puck sprung setup that I installed was good for 400ft/lb of torque? There is no way the car makes near that much. Or... maybe it does. It could be the combination of that head/cam/turbo makes a torque curve that peaks at a relatively low RPM. Horsepower = RPM x Torqu...

Yeah, there is:

Download that .zip file and extract to your MS project folder. Then run the new .bat file from there.

Do you have some logs of the stuttering? Were there lean spikes from unburned fuel? Are all the sensor signals clean (primarily MAP and TPS)? You could try reloading the firmware too. It does look like it needs colder plugs. Is all the speckling on the porcelain carbon - no aluminum? (time to pull o...

So it's better than before, but still not quite enough to even out cylinder 1. It looks like the inlet side of the manifold needs to be angled too - about 15 to 20 degrees. Like so: http://i108.photobucket.com/albums/n2/j_dudeck/COSMOSFloXpress_snap4.jpg http://i108.photobucket.com/albums/n2/j_dudec...

Cylinder 1 will be very lean. Probably 8%+ compared with 4. Make sure to tune excessively rich. That's how it ran before....Cylinder 1 leaner than the rest. I had hoped this would help that....but you think it will stay the same or get even worse? I think the manifold looks better than it did befor...

I think I sold the windage tray a long time ago. Look closer, there should be just one gasket and the pan. That gasket has probably been re-used about 3 or 4 times. If it's getting weepy, it might be about time for a new one.

Is there any chance the disc got glazed from not getting driven hard enough? Kevlar can do that...especially full faced ones. I'm sorry, I meant to say segmented Kevlar. And I dunno... I suppose it's possible, but not likely. Do you know the PN for the disc? Or a link to the disc that's in the car?...

I think it would be a good idea to see why it's slipping before you buy any new clutch bits. It has a full faced Kevlar disk from Clutchnet in it already. (not a turbo dodge disk) And a 2500psi cover... which is pretty stout. I dunno what the Spec stage 3-4 covers are rated at, but probably not much...

I haven't checked this forum in a while... We'd have to spend $50 on better couplers and clamps if we used the eBay FMIC's. Unless you're getting a "kit" an intercooler usually doesn't come with couplers and clamps anyway. But you won't need any either way. There are already couplers and clamps on t...

^^^ Agreed For a stock 2.0L the stock injectors should be fine even with all the bolt on performance mods. Stock injectors are 200 cc/min or 19 lb/hr, and are good for up to about 150 hp. If you want/need more fuel a 24 lb/hr (250 cc/min) injector or depending on your HP goals a 30 lb/hr (315 cc/min...

Yeah... depending on the grade either 3rd or 4th. It actually builds more boost in 4th because the higher load and reletivly lower rpm. So, I would shift down to 3rd to get out of boost. A bigger turbo would also help with that... something like a BW S256ET. I think I would rather sell the car than ...

Yeah, that's perfectly normal. When you shut it off the coolant stops flowing through the block, so it gets a little warmer initially (untill the whole engine starts to cool off). So when you turn it back on it reads hotter untill the coolant that was sitting in the radiator (which doesn't get heat ...

Not much to update really. The last bit of tuning still isn't done. There isn't any straight road here to open it up. Going up the pass I got it up to about 10psi with 50% throttle, which is about an 8ms PW and 30% DC on the new injectors. I don't drive it much because the county road is pretty roug...
