For the battery problem I just grounded everything. I have a ground going to the alternator, coils, transmission, throttle body, and another one going to the starter. It was made of 4 guage wire. The wire that I have for the positive is a 2 guage welding wire. has a high strand count and works really well. I grounded the battery in two locations also. Maybe it was a little overkill but I think it fixed whatever problem I was having.
I did another boost leak test... and to my surprise the clamp to the gm sensor to the throttle body elbow was loose. it must have been when i was working on something else. Clamped it down hard this time and double checked everything.
The check engine light is because of the coolent sensor. I love my logger! I am going to check connections later.
Ticking went away... don't know if that is good or bad...
Checked timing and it is where it should be...
checked fuel pressure and it was at 40, turned it back down to 37
Running a lot better now!!!!!!!
Another question can the logger tell if you have a bad O2 sensor?
I got done putting on a 2g o2 housing, I didn't realize how close the o2 sensor comes to the alt and sparked it. It could have killed the sensor, I don't know.
