    3sgte unstable ignition

    Another possibility is your timing light is goofing up.

    Is there a way

    Is there a way to make the text in these forums appear darker? its tough to see with the light background?
  3. Could you have had hydraulic cam followers that took some time to bleed down? possibly holding an intake valve slightly open...

    Full lean under light throttle load

    Are you certain that your injector dead times are correct?

    Fire up problem cold start on e85

    In my experience with E85, they are typically harder to start when its cold or the car has sat for a week or so, I havent came upon a good fix yet, although I have tried a few different attempts, that being said the stock ecu had the same issues with E85 so its not just standalone having the problem, its possibly the injectors not atomizing the ethanol as well as the gasoline and the higher flash point and water intrusion that happens with ethanol.

    flamethrower tune help

    You can retard your ignition as much as 20 degrees but I wouldnt go much farther than that and then add fuel enough to make flames if you really need to, but keep in mind that it can be hard on parts, including your turbo, exhaust manifold, and if your not careful it can cause valve to piston contact in some cases.

    flamethrower tune help

    Most people would just rather have their car run clean and pull nice, this crap is why the import culture gets laughed at and not taken seriously, making noise and fire just to annoy people that dont want to hear your car or see your car making exhaust fire shouldnt be your main priority, try to go fast with some CLASS, that will get you the RIGHT kind of attention for a change.

    Base maps/ ignition timing

    On alcohol that could be a non issue, again it comes down to the mods, and the turbo size, some of those areas would never even be usable by my setup! He needs to run a map tracer so that we know what areas are actually being seen by the ecu, engine damage could have happened by any number of things in the past, an air leak or poor quality fuel etc can take pistons out, who knows. There are also areas in his tuned map that are less aggressive than the provided stock map so it comes down to input from him.

    And another since I was bored and it was so nice out.

    Base maps/ ignition timing

    Depends on what fuel is being used also.

    Base maps/ ignition timing

    It doesnt look all that much more aggressive than the other one to me, the best thing you could do is to run a stock map and datalog your car so everyone can see what areas of the ignition and fuel map are in use, some areas almost never get touched.

    2JZ Electric Power Steering Pump

    I have ran a MR2 pump for about 5 years now, I dont use the factory controller which I do have, it is not built in to the pump assembly. I simply use the factory relay to turn it on and several large resistors (radiator fan type) to slow the motor down to a reasonable speed to save current draw and motor life, works fine no problems, enough assist in parking lots (your not going to one finger it with this setup) but not too much on the highway.

    Blown engine!

    Thats detonation damage causing the rings to get pinched, what fuel were you running?

    Link Engine Management at the Dsm Shootout

    Throwing in a photo shoot of the ride since there is no place specified for photos of cars.
  15. Want to say thanks to Link Engine Management for sponsoring the Dsm/Evo/Gtr shootout in Norwalk, OH back in August of this year, the turnout was great and I had no actual idea that there was going to be a Link dealer at the event, so it was a great surprise to see them not only there but they ended up parked beside us which was either a coincidence or on purpose, either way it was a great weekend!
