That’s determination!

I wouldn’t have to drive thaaat far, I guess I need to rethink my priorities LOL.

If you ever get a taste of the extra power you can extract out of Ethanol, you will never go back to dino squeezin's. Thats why I keep fuel on hand even tho my cars are flex fuel compatible, once they taste E, they say fooie to gas and the best gas I can get here is 91 octane. 20 gallons cost me $35. :D

We do have 93 where I’m at, and I haven’t messed around with octane booster yet.

Other than that, I was happy with the power I was getting with the Holset on pump overall.

Stupid question maybe, but why do you need huge injectors to run E?

I’m that’s my cars way of getting back at me for never driving it and only starting once a week.

Not stupid. It takes about a third more fuel with E to get your AFR's correct and to just get it to run right and not too lean. That is why, if you buy "cheap" gas (with E in it) it doesn't get you as many miles down the road.

The only stupid question is the one you don't ask!
Welcome anytime.

I finally got to hear my 7 bolt build start up last night at my son's house, in his 95 Talon that he calls "Lilly" in remembrance of his miscarried daughter that would have had that name!
He had started it 1 time as a test and it fired right up, this was it's second startup.

That’s AWESOME! It’s a great feeling to see an engine come to life!

Today I changed out the lower inter cooler pipe on my 2g for solid piping. I cannot believe the difference! Faster spool, smoother and more consistent power through the RPM’s, and I was able to keep the stock intake...for now.

Anyone thinking they may want to do this (and if you have some tubing and couplers laying around) it’s 100% worth it!

Makes the stock side mount muuuuch more efficient.

I looked at it and thought I can't wait for my ECU to return with the converted ecmlink chip, its on the plane crossing the ocean right now yeeeeehaaa grandmaaa

I cleaned out the garage around it so I can see it again.. Its so sad and lonely waiting on its heart transplant.
I feel your pain, mine just came out of a 3 year coma, now for the long rehabilitation to get it back where it belongs racing those v8's at the stop lights LOL

It’s funny. I’ve tuned with ecmlink with my 1g and loved it.

Now that I own a 2g and need to switch platforms, there is no such thing as 2g ecmlink chips... this pandemic is really annoying.

My understanding is that finding 2g ecmlink is like seeing a unicorn... riding another unicorn.

I wish they could get the chips in from their suppliers already. I guess no one knows when that will happen.

EDIT* In case anyone else is waiting, Dave emailed me letting me know they that are hoping to get the cables come late September.

Also I want to make it clear that I am not begrudging the guys at ECMLink AT ALL! I completely understand that this is not their fault, and we’re all just along for the COVID ride. I am just venting my frustration about this virus.

nice clean looking car.
I'm a new member not even sure how this forum works but I do have a question.
My fan that cools down the radiator doesn't have a reley. It's missing out of the fuse box under the hood.
Any idea where I can purchase 1??

You can get a Relay from any auto parts store.
I won 3rd at a car show this weekend then went on a car cruise. Must have got a boost leak as car was idle surging when i got back. 100% stock un known mile trans still alive somehow logging 60lb/min.
