    GoPros, wind noise, and me

    So, I picked up a hero2 yesterday, mostly for some aquatic fun on vacation, but slapped it on a suction cup mount and drove in with it to work today.I never really got moving, but the wind noise over about 30mph is kind of a pain. I've seen some foam tricks, suggestions to run a wired mic...

    ECMlink Back to Link, back to dumb questions

    Alright, so I've been unhappy with a bit of breaking up in higher RPMs so I decided I'd start Link from scratch, and retune the car.I present to you, a warm-up/drive/idle log for review. I have a random miss at part throttle in this log and was wondering if you all get anything from the...

    New O2, new TB gaskets, WOT and cruise logs

    Thoughts?BoostEst is far less artificially inflated than it once was, WB is still the same POS AEM garbage (quiet, Brian), but the pull seems pretty clean. I'm inclined to thing the AFEst is close to actual due to the smoke (black) at WOT ;)

    TB elbow question on SBR FMIC
