The previous ECU was running quite lean at WOT with an AF ratio of 14ish. This occurred following the change to the Kinugawa 20G turbo. It’s … More On The Road Again

Time permitting I may one day grasp something of the various types of spark plug technology and their suitability for various levels of high boost performance engines. But for now at … More NA cam delete + other interesting stuff
It’s been a while I know! I feel like I’ve been enjoying the fruits of my labour somewhat uninterrupted by further significant modifications.
