      No idea, but dragtimes.com is a pretty cool website that is a database for 1/4 mile times and what mods were done to get that time, check it out. I'm gonna guess mid to low 12's in street trim, could...
    2. Thinking about going back to NA; thoughts?

      Long story short, I'm sick of chasing gremlins, breaking transmissions and axles, etc. I just don't have the time or money to put into this car anymore, plus it's my daily driver. I'm finishing up my...

      So if fuel pressure is not increasing under boost, what all could be the cause? FPR readings are within spec with and without vacuum line at idle. I'm rich at idle and leaning out at above 15 psi.

      You might not have to for 272's, but I'd imagine you would for 288's. Either way, stand alone will get more power out of the cams. Curious to hear from anyone who has run larger than a 268 on a...

      Now that I think about it, the reason I went with 268's is that I have a flash tune. United Motorsports said it wasn't necessary to adjust the tune for the 268 cams; anything bigger would really...

      I have a gauge from ECS on the line right before the rail, it's right on spec for a 3 bar, 43 with the line on and 48 I believe with it off if I remember correctly. How are you guys verifying fuel...

      I'm happy with the 268's, it's really just curiousity about how the 272's would be different. Most likely a bit more loss in the low end for a bit more high end power. I won't be switching though. ...

      288's would be the most aggressive for the street, but might be a bit too much for a daily driver. I went with TT 268's but I wonder if I should have gone for 272's sometimes. I'm turboed and I...

      I'm dealing with a similar issue, except I can see that I'm actually leaning out above 15 psi. I have a fpr gauge on my fuel line and it is normal it idle, and increases with the fpr vacuum line off....

      My AFR is kinda all over the place. Most of the time it's normal, though sometimes it pegs rich randomly and wants to stall out at idle, then goes back to normal. Other times it pegs lean and...

      Vacuum reading with cams

      I recently had a set of TT 268 cams installed on my VRT, before the cams my vacuum was -16 at idle, now it is -10. Does this seem normal? Seems a bit low to me, I've been trying to find leaks, but...

      I found and fixed the problem, it was the vacuum source connecting to the turbo itself that had also come off. Thanks for the help!

      No, it doesn't feel like 27 psi, though I've let off every time as soon as I see that much boost. I'll try it again and keep an eye on the wideband.

      My initial thought was the extra air coming in...
    14. No, it was the line to the fuel pressure...

      No, it was the line to the fuel pressure regulator. It came off the plastic nipple that connects to some of the other lines. It's back on now.

      I guess this means I have another possible vacuum...
    15. Vacuum line popped off, car now overboosting

      I had a vacuum line come off the other day while driving and my car started reading 27 psi on my boost gauge under boost. It should only be hitting 12 psi with the wastegate spring I have installed...

      Sorry for the necrobump, but I did some logs and noticed my maf numbers seemed low compared to what I thought it should be (150 g/s)

      Does C2/UM scale the maf readings? What kind of numbers should...

      Are you sure it's not the traction control light that is flashing? This may seem obvious, and you probably know the difference between the traction control light and check engine light, but I thought...

      Occasionally my car will also do this on cold starts; I have to turn it off and back on again, sometimes a few times in a row, and then it will be back to normal. I have no idea why this happens, but...

      My issue is definitely fueling related. I got my AEM wide band installed yesterday; my car will randomly go super rich at idle (10:1) and die out, and is going lean under boost (14-15:1). This is...
