those pulls were back to back w/n an hour of each other after 2 1/2 hours on the dyno.
o ok, so one question. Did the vacuum leak cause the rod to warp or what really caused it to do it???
so one engine burp on a down shift and the stock componits are gone. O well, guess some bargan h beams and some forged pistons are in order :blah2:
My only question is did you do all of these mods on the stock ECU, or the one that was supplied in the kit? I've heard that my blower FRPP ECU with a custom chip is crap and I should go back to the stock ECU with a custom chip. Your thoughts? The pinging issue...I only have it ping on the two higher performance tunes on my JMS 3-bank....but it pulls sooo hard. I imagine that there has to be a way to tune my car so it is a turn-key daily driver and yet a race ready monster all while not having any ECU or pinging issues.
the car had "issues" that night. It was running extremely rich for unknown reason and had little to no power. I believe what happened, is when i "blipped" the throttle it had a good bit of unburnt gas charged that ignited as the piston was on the exhaust stroke and when this happened it bent the rod.
The vacuum leak is the main reason it bent the rod, but the pinging issue didn't help much either.
All of those mods were done on the FRPP supplied ECU. Speaking of which, i am still running the FRPP ECU in the car now w/ the turbo setup and a MPH break-inn tune.
so you like the frpp computer unit then?
Same question from me as well. I actually have both computers in my posession, the FRPP ECU is in the car right now. If I'm running the FRPP blower, then I'm best to use the FRPP ECU right?
Maybe Tim @ MPH knows alot more about tuning then the tuners who were having issues with the SVO computers :dunno:
Tim is one of if not the best tuners in the country.
I'll look for a phone number.... He isn't a frequent flyer on this site by any chance is he?
the frpp computer is what i have now. its a decent computer to get you by, BUT you STILL need a dyno tune.
dont forget that the frpp computer is essentially a stock computer recalibrated for the larger injectors and airflow.
it still had to perform within emissions somewhat, and it leaves alot to be desired in performance
he isn't on this forum...there is the forums www.modularpowerhouse.com which is the company.
No, follow the link in the above post. Tim is one of the few tuners that its worth driving 1000 miles to go to.
I was looking at something a little closer than Georgia. I've heard about this Jon Lund guy near Philadelphia. I'm gonna save up some more and do my cams while I'm at it.
If your in the Philly area you want Kauffmans in Dillsburg PA, they are the NorthEast = to Tim at MPH in Modular tuning world.
I'm definitely not in the philly area. I'm in Southern Maryland. There has to be someone closer than that. There's a place in Mount Airy, MD. that does custom SCT tuning on a dyno.
why not Steen in Va
they did your heads didn't they?
Yeah, they did all of the work actually. I've considered them, just checking on my options.
