That + exhaust leak = EGR.
Haha, no that's just called dave being lazy. He took the cover off because we put the fuel rail on and was too lazy to order an intake. Then he was also too lazy to put the cover back on, resulting in exhaust manifold cone filter mod.
He has a winter beater anyways so the car is basically sitting- which is why I had the chance to go all dr. Frankenstein on it's electronics today.
Ah crap looks like I'll be turning my interest back to putting mine on Haltech Platinum Sport 2000 then

If you aren't going to keep it drive by wire then why not do the Link extreme? Then I can get you a base map with everything setup etc... They are pretty reasonable... The V88 has a pretty hefty premium for the e-throttle which IMO is justified since it's a pain in the ass.
Sorry for the *total* lack of updates on this guys. I got a little busy working on some other projects and this got pretty much shoved on the back burner.
We got the stock throttle body working on the Vi-Pec- it actually works quite well. I'll have the guys shoot a quick video of that this week. We are getting very close to getting this thing fired up on the dyno now with that hurdle crossed. We need to hook up the exhaust and do some housekeeping on some smaller items, and we'll be in business.
We are very excited to start testing some power parts I promise guys the updates will flow again starting soon.
So, I promised an update, and here it is...
We officially have the 2.5L on our dyno, and running on Vi-pec standalone. We got it fired up late last night, and spent some of today cleaning up the mess. A few tweaks and a couple missing OEM bits and we'll be ready to start doing pulls. We have the OE Drive by wire working already, the VVT will be next once we start doing some tuning. We will be sure to build out a nice index of base maps as we go for anyone who wants to follow in our footsteps.
Really excited to start testing a few products- big and small. I'll have the guys make a little video for you in the next day or two.
When you get everything sorted out, what are the possibilities of this being marketable? Will you start doing stand alone tunes? Just wondering.
Definitely need it if you get a SRI.
How was the cookout Omar? I wanted to go so bad!
Little update on this: The junkyard motor we bought, which allegedly had 40k miles on it- has zero compression on cylinder #1. I'll post some pics of the tear down and resulting OE rebuild- we want to leave it stock for now and build up from there.
sub'd Love what I see thus far!
Good news guys, after a few snags the motor has perfect compression and is up and running like a champ! We put together a little teaser video of a baseline pull for you. Now we can start development of new parts and start making some power.
