I'm debating on a dump tube for the wastegate. Right now it dumps in front of the engine and I figure get as much heat out as possible, no reason not to send it under the car, out the fender or out the hood.

Where's the easiest exit point?

Easiest is to leave it alone. Car is finally on all 4 tires. Exhaust and tune are the last steps.

Planned on spending all day tuning. But after I filled the tank, the gas gauge went down. I pulled the pump, the float was just hung up apparently. I did re-route the fuel feed line, and that left me with a foot extra, so I spent some time coming up with some clever routing and it works for now. When I have more time, it'll be on the list.


I need to go back and redo the timing table, denmah's doesn't have enough timing to get this cam over the 1500-2000rpm hump.


Getting there. I didn't plan on being under the car all day....but it happens. I have a couple more things to tweak and then this whistle monster will be on its way.

Washed it yesterday. Cold weather is inbound. I ordered a cover for it. I'm going to order one of these too - http://www.rhinoshelters.com/vehicle-storage-protection/41-car-pocket.html as it will be stored at my Dad's recently purchased man-land property. He's got a nice 2 car garage, huge shop, and a odd sized garage/shed. I don't know how the critters are out there and don't want to take a chance.


Next year issues:
WBo2 is acting funny. I'm going to try and re-calibrate, and get some more tube after it to see if it helps. Probably needs replaced as it's 7 years old!
I'm still not 100% happy with the fuel line lay out, and I'm not sure I like the vacuum block location.

Yeah you can use various gasses to test them. I know propane works...


I had a pretty good neurology appointment on Monday. With any luck they hope to have my pain under better control in the near future.
