Lol yeah my contribution to the whole "fatherhood" thing so far has been pretty easy. . . it was dicey at first as my better half has had a miscarriage on a previous attempt, plus she has a blood disorder that causes her to clot too easily, so she's on blood thinners for the entire pregnancy (daily injections of Heparin).Looks like a cool project !
Congrats on fartherhood ! yea, you have no idea about the change in priorities
I have a few 60's project cars I might get to when my kids go away to college.
Fortunately she's a nurse so she has GREAT insurance and free access to ultrasounds, plus plenty of doctor friends from whom to solicit free advice on a daily basis. This is probably the most monitored/scrutinized non-celebrity baby since Jesus! I tease her that the kid's gonna come out with his/her ears ringing from all the ultrasounds! :laugh:
I have a Grimmspeed 3 port EBCS. Problem is it's overboosting. . .as in it's not being triggered at all. Tuner and I am at a loss. Solenoid is functional as tested with 12v across it and blowing air through the ports. So either the commands aren't making it from the ECU or I have a wiring fault. I can loop the hoses from the manifold to the wastegate and run on WG spring pressure only and make about 10psi, but if I hook up the EBCS it'll go straight to 23psi. Mighty fun at that level but not good for the engine.You mention both the TGV deletes and the EBC. So after my 1st build round, in which I did my own deletes, I also stacked them up on an 8mm GrimmSpeed thermal spacer. After the car wouldn't make boost. Well not tall boost...high 10s...psi.
I was kind like where you are without having help. Well, Ed/XRT. But I wonder if the stock boost controller doesn't like the deletes. Unless u=you are pretty sure there is a leak. I am pretty sure mine were were/are not leaking.
In any event I have the GrimmSpeed 3 port EBC now. Ed is still preparing to boost. But where Frank is at now...pushing 12 at 60% throttle.
I can hear the boost leak from in the cabin running down the road, just can't find it with the engine off and as it's electric throttle I can't blip it from under the hood.
Anyway, it's been back-burnered as I've been churning out 2nd gens to sell like they're going out of style. Trying to get a nice financial cushion before the baby gets here. . . and fancy trucksters don't really further that cause
