Jimbo installed a supercharger, dramatically improving performance, and got up to 74 MPG.

I don't have any idea what it was and I haven't tried to find out.

I only heard it that one time.

I just hope I don't hear the ghost of Christmases past for the final!

That looks interesting!

I miss the short novella about how your life is going.

As for me, I'm learning about Gaussian Splatting from someone named Jack Wang [snicker].

That's the most ebullient person I've seen in ever. The last few seconds suggest the .OBJ file is saved with materials. You have an iPhone don't you?

An amazing little lady agreed to marry me for some reason and Jimbo continued working on an Insight

Back to the incredible little lady!

Thank you very much! I greatly appreciate it!

There was a new video on Sunday, but I don't want to create a new post in case anyone hasn't seen the good news.

Jimbo made a new supercharger pulley, making much more horsepower without worsening the fuel economy, but the stock Insight (with disabled hybrid) was still drastically faster. Happy Easter everyone! Jimbo gave the Insight an energy drink! Jimbo says that running lean will damage engines as he modifies his Insight:

Happy Mother's Day, everyone.

Jimbo compared the 0-60 time of the stock and his supercharged diesel.
The stock one is a second or two slower than it is supposed to be--and the supercharged diesel is another 10 seconds slower.
Then he 3d-printed mounts for the computer-controlled fuel rack limiter and the computer-controlled blowoff valve, which provides linear boost control.
He put aluminum inserts in each mount.
