Swing by and grab me when you are out and about. I wanna go for a ride.

If you want me to drive while you do some auto tuning, I'm also game. Wink

No more auto tune for me. My AFR sensor took a shit, so I just disabled it. I think the bung we used allowed the sensor to be to deep into the exhaust stream, and it got cooked. I checked the bung that came with the gage and the sensor barely pokes the tip out.

Could be. It was acting funny like I said when we talked last. Today I took it out to recalibrate. It would do its thing and then show E8 instead of the full scale 22.5 AFR reading in open air. E8 is a damaged sensor in the user manual. Going to contact Innovate and see if I can get a new sensor out of them. Sensor shouldn't fail in 4 months.

Edit: Just read some reviews on this product on Amazon's site. Not one good word, almost all comments were on failures of the sensor. One tip I read was to heat the tip of the sensor cherry red with a map torch to clean it. I'm going to try that, see what happens.

Fuck yeah!!! Today starter early. Got my test drive in around noon, scrapped one of the rubber hoses on the ground, decided to continue the stainless hardline to eliminate that.

After all that, refilled it up and took it down to put some gas in it. Drives fucking awesome, tranny/shifter I need to adjust. Gearing seems pretty dam good for freeway. Water temp never gets over 180, intown or freeway. I got a few small things to adjust but I finally drove it!!!

Rear IRS swap works great, torsion bar elimination and QA1 swap I did is sooo dam good I forgot about it until I got home. Rides great!!! 8" spring @ 600 pounds rides great! Super solid!

She's a dirty bitch!!
