I'm Billy With a Mustang,

Hello all, today is my first day as a member and my introduction goes as follows:

I love cars
I live in seattle but I'm from Wyoming
From the age of 14 (23 now) I been in shops working on motorcycles, semi trucks and cars.
I am now in school for Mechanical Engineering, wrapping up my first year.

Posted on my profile are pictures of my car and the Mod I made to it. The Mod is, I Ported my exhaust ports from 3cm to 3.5cm to increase volumetric efficiency. There Is a lot that went in to that decision which I plan to post my explanations to that inspiration later.

Thanks For Looking
-Billy

Welcome! I'm interested in hearing your reasoning! Did you do anything with the intake or just the exhaust?

Nothing to the intake as far as size goes, just a light polish. I have seen the Scan Guage, I actually just finished building the MPGuino today from somewhat scratch with an Arduino Uno. I am stoked to install it. Next I want to make the OBDuino. After I can post pictures on the forum I'll be able to show you all, It's pretty ugly but its my first electronics build ever in my life. I'm still proud of it though haha
