just when you think its over....
final tune went great, but my wastegate wont hold the pressure that my tuner wants to give it. it is after all 12 years old and we believe the diaphragm inside is just old and at its end.
so you UPGRADE!!!
Forge Wastegate is going in when we add water/meth in a couple of weeks.
battery staying in front for now. its actually alot of work to get a battery in the trunk of a wagon up here in canada (to meet safety regulations, this is a DD after all)
powersteering is staying.
abs is being deleted and a new master cyl & brake booster are going in.
its sitting at 20psi and im told i should hit mid 12's with a good launch. wont make the track day, but really really really hoping to get some ET's layed down soon.
oh and the 4EAT is holding up pretty good after 3 trans oil changes. most of the slipping is gone and shifts are pretty damn good and responsive. 1st > 2nd is still a little wonky, and the torque sometimes causes and early downshift when only on partial throttle. but i still cant confirm if its too much power or just a 14yr old transmission. that we can probably never answer, but for the time being, its still holding up nicely. going to do 1 more drain/refill + a 2nd new filter and leave it at that.
