Race Car parts!  Owners like to suffer!

A lot of broken parts does not make you a racer; it makes you a slow learner.

Trying to keep this thing as simple as possible.
210lb/hr injectors installed, updated the tune, dropped the fuel pressure from 60 to 45psi and it fired right off and seems to be happy.

It may not go any faster with more boost. We will have to find out.

My parents suck at the moment and I don't know what to do with them  :icon_fU:

Drove the car around - fueling is a few percent off. Couple more 10 mile drives and I should have cruise, and part throttle mapped well enough to make an educated guess on how the WOT part of the fuel table will need to be changed.
The 210s seem good this far - they idle fine, and drive around good.

Got the idle fueling and timing dialed a little better - she rev's nice an crisp.
I ended up redoing the transmission lines, was still having some minor issues. Got rid of the coupling fittings so stuff isn't rigid mounted to the trans, everything was so tight, it was almost impossible to get a wrench on it. Need some more atf and then it needs to be driven, so I can fix it all over again

I thought I was missing something  :rofl:
Wife is telling me to just go find a trailer and buy it. Since it makes it 100% easier for me to race.
My dad sold the trailer he had promised to my brother and I. We even told him we’d pay fair market pricing. He’s choosing to be a dick at this point.

That's too bad. A trailer will certainly make it easier
