Well Iím about to put the ďfinishingĒ touches on my car in the next two weeks. Next weekend, April 3rd, Iím getting my COBB downpipe and Innovate LC-1 Wideband + DB Gauge (WBO2 data logging plus the gauge).
Both pieces are already ordered, the wideband Iím picking up for $220 brand new from a guy by me (he has a sweet hookup with Innovate- he is also performing my tune), and the COBB is on hold for me until they get back in stock at my shop mid to late next week. Iíll be putting those in right away, and Iím going to take it easy for the week I have the DP on as Iíll be running it w/o a tune.
The following weekend, April 10th, Iím putting on my dusty GrimmSpeed 3-Port on and getting tunedÖ. Itís been a long (read: expensive) road, but Iím finally going to be seeing some real results after all the hard work Iíve put into the car.
Some of you may know, my goal is 300 awhp/300+ tq, and I donít know if Iíll hit that because of my elevation and gas situation, but I know the car will be more than capable of it given my mod list. I said ďfinishingĒ touches earlier, and I still have more to come, but the power adders are complete after this next step. Once I get this done, Iím looking to do my engine/trans/pitch mounts, sport grille, some sort of BPV if the stock one canít hold up to my boost levels (thinking 18ish psi to be safe on my 91 oct. fuel). After that itís just saving money for an eventual transmission and engine build, but those are a few years down the line (fingers crossed on the tranny build not being necessary but voluntary).
There may be a few other items Iíll need, but only time will tell. The fuel pump and injectors are the big question mark, but all, literally all, the tuners I talk to say I donít need them. This includes the guys at COBB. They have all said stock injectors and pump and fine for the stock turbo. Iím taking their advice, but if I see issues, Iíll do them.
