Before I would use the turbo lag to control lean burn and keep it in the light load part of the map. The accelerator pump enrichment part of the TPS would be just enough to pull the engine out of lean burn into the medium part of the MAP.

From a race point of view its great!!! I'm going to have full boost under 4000rpm easy.

From a FE point of view I might of just lost my lean burn light load window.

I starting to get very sick of this car. Our weather just turned also with this weeks high temps of only 25*F. Maybe I will gut the damn thing put the roll cage in it and turn it into a full time race car!!!
Just let it sit for a while, have enough drinks to wipe out your short term memory, take a vacation after the hangover, and get an alcohol induced attitude adjustment.

The folks here would like to see the finished product, with you standing next to it with a big $%^& eating grin on your face.

Or just tell us to shove it and do what you want. I hardly drink anymore, maybe 6 screw drivers in 6 months. The liquid type of course.

Thanks Mech, that makes me feel a whole lot better. I took your advice and had three glasses of wine tonight with dinner. So I will report later on my short term memory. As of now I'm thinking what car? So I think its working lol

Work out some calculations this weekend on my engine simulator and tuning spreadsheet. The new small HP turbo should be OK and needed for the my hot air intake valve? I will have to run the outside fuel cells a little more leaner then I did last year. This will keep the engine from hunting for a richer cell and maintain the engine to lock into lean burn? The new small turbo will also help with lower rpm medium load by a higher dynamic compression at lower rpm for better BSFC.

I'm now waiting on the weather to get better. This weekend the lows should be only around 33*F(right now 16*F). This helps me a ton in the garage by keeping my attitude up. I hate working when its cold in the shop. lol

Car build to date $$$$

Oh my Oh my

I did some addition to see my investment on my Talon so far.

Car $1100.00 Used
ECM Link SD Management System $ 700.00 New
Trans parts $500.00 New/Used
Head w/Cams $1000.00 Used/Rebuilt
Rings/Bearings etc. $500.00 New
Turbo's $1500.00 New/Used
Exhaust system $300.00 Used/Built
Waste Gates $500.00 New/Used
W/B, Map etc $300.00 New
Tires wheels $600.00 New/Used
Misc $1000.00

Investment $8000.00

Paint was Free PPG Sponsor
Labor on the car Mechanical and Body and Paint done by me. The exhaust was done by a friend.

The build took over three years and to be honest I could probably only get around $4000.00 out of it. So the ROI sucks but its be fun to build and keeps out of the bars.

Your ROI will look much better if you include all the money you did NOT spend in bars.
