      Good read. I've been on here since 2001 when I bought my G60. I've only put maybe 20,000 miles on it since then. It finally drives nice now; the 02J transmission does the car justice, actually. ...

      It's getting better. I recently made the switch to 89 octane from 91. So far I like it but I did have to pull back timing in some areas. I don't really have high compression anyways. It's...

      Yeah, semi-sequential. It's definitely helped get rid of mis-fires during cruise and I also gained 2 MPG. Starts quicker and slightly more vacuum at idle. :thumbup:

      I certainly think it's a good idea but I have yet to read of a circumstance where tires with the same size rating but different wear have obviously ruined a transmission. And do owner's manuals even...

      Well, I think he was right. 6 teeth + half the woodruff key = about 21 deg. BTDC intake valve opening. I ask because with Megasquirt I can time the injectors to ensure the fuel hits a closed valve.

      I quoted this from page 1 and I don't have time to go back through this thread to see if this statement was retracted. The tried and true method is 6 teeth + half the woodruff key (+5.8 degrees). ...

      Thanks Shawn.

      #1 - Yeah, fuel cut is off but AE is bypassed by a very high TPSdot threshold.
      #2 - I think once I get the perfect idle, I won't need to advance timing to prevent stalling. It...

      You were right. :thumbup: I turned off accel enrichment and fattened up the bottom rows. So far it feels much improved. Shifting is smoother for sure. I was relying too much on AE going in and...

      I enabled the semi-sequential injection option. Had to go from 2 squirts alternating to 2 squirts simultaneous because I can't remember how I have my injectors wired. It solved a misfire that I had...

      The TCL boot licker crowd is out in full force here. I slow down in construction zones so don't taze me. But no amount of ticketing will reduce your individual tax burden.

      Hmmm, I haven't messed with injector timing yet. Maybe that's my next step. The biggest improvement so far has been in decreasing the TPS and RPM lag factors from 50% to 95%. Felt waayyy different...

      Hey, looking for some on-topic insight. My father would like me to adopt a project he never really started. He's had this white 1986 XJ6 sitting on jack stands in his garage for the last 10 years. ...

      I know a couple that buys, rents and flips multi-units up here. They probably claim $150k on taxes together. Good money for no degrees but I'll keep my desk job. Maintaining two houses is enough...
