Weather has been crap for the last couple of weeks so not much driving. But I am
working on getting a temporary W/M injection setup into the car so I can get the
lines and wiring run. Thats the last step in this build, and once that is operating,
I can get stuck into the tuning side... and driving :)

Thanks. I'm kind of lucky to have these roads just a couple of miles from home. They
run thru a farming area and there is something relaxing about being able to forget that
the city is so close. Driving on the freeway or in the city does nothing for me, so I get
out on those little roads and enjoy driving the way it used to be :)

I was changing a few things around today... going back to the ST205 MAP sensor in
place of the sensor built-in to the ECU. And I have one of these on the intake manifold...

Image

When I went to hook the sensor up I found that the car had been running with the
vacuum cap missing off one of the spigots. Can't remember if I took it off for some
reason, or if it fell off somewhere along the way. So I hooked the sensor hose up to
the open spigot (the other one is hooked up to the vacuum/boost gauge) and went
to start the car to make sure everything was working.... and sure enough my tune
was shot to pieces :( Car wouldn't even fire up until I changed a heap of things,
mainly to do with getting more fuel into the engine as it pulls more vacuum now.

So I have to basically do a whole re-tune just because of the tiny vacuum leak that
was caused by that spoigot being open. Sure surprised me, and now I start to see
why vacuum leaks can be such a pain when trying to get your car running smoothly.

You are the F'ing man. Just sayin. The amount of help you provide on the forum alone warrants that. Keep up the good work!

Thanks bro :) When I first joined the old forum, I got a lot out of it. That was
quite some time ago. Now it's my turn to put something back in so that others
can maybe benefit from what I have learned. Going full circle I guess :)
