    Thanks for the thought
    ....I was just checking out that Tial site. I thought I had the .9Bar spring, but now I don't know. The box that it came in is long gone too. I guess I'll just have to open it up to see, when the time comes.

    Yeah, BS is gone.
    My mechanic seems to think the same thing... The relief cylinder/plunger (whatever it's called) might be stuck. Its has about 230k miles on it. He's gonna pull it this week and see.

    I hope to get it fixed and back to the dyno soon. This stage of my set-up is soo soo close to being done for now (Need to save $$$ for a race motor next) BUT... last Friday was a huge waste of $$$. We did get a good tune of 268whp @ 10psi, but that was only the starting point for our tune. Now we'll have to go back to the Dyno for a 2nd tuning sesh; That wasnt in my budget, and I'm not rich by any means. Unfortunately after the oil pressure prob is fixed, I may have to drive it @ 10psi for a bit until I can afford another Dyno/Tune sesh.

    I bought this car mid July, and has been wrenched on since Aug 1st!
    If this thing ever gets finished long enough for me to drive it! It 'COULD' be really fast!


    I think I need to become a POSDSM member :tease:
    ...Their site title clearly shows that they understand DSM's better :beatentodeath:

    where are you going to tune your car and what are their rates. I like the 268hp with only 10psi, thats a great start.

    We used Dyno Authority's AWD Mustang Dyno, and I brought my own tunner.
    It was too damn expensive thats how much... I was paying two companies at once though.

    Hey audioextreme
    It was the relief plunger that got stuck. :thumb:

    I also got to take my 1st street test. Aw Yeah!

    Great. I figured thats what it was since it aparently was fine on the way to the shop. That has happened on several of my DSMs.

    I really need to get this job I am working on done. So I can get a car. I haven't been in a DSM in.... damn almost 2.5 years!

    My significant other is going to go bonkers when I find one and park my third car in front of the house. She thinks it's stupid to own more than 2 cars. Lets see the most at one time I have had is 2 work trucks, a suv, and 3 DSM and an R6. Good thing she didn't know me then.

    Hopefully we'll start seeing better weather soon.

    Toronto,
    LOL, get used to it, just wait for the day when you look in the sky and see no clouds in sight, and yet you still get little spots of rain showers. Better grab a cup of Starbucks and get back to work, because rain on this side of the mountains is something you can count on to ruin your day.
