    That's 100k Kilometers, so close to 60k miles.

    It's more than I thought I would put on it, since I work from home and it's really just used on the weekends and for road trips (other than recent data logging).

    I bought it in March of 2015, so I've had it for about 4 years and 2 months. Man, does time fly by!

    Well Boys and girls, the Dyno session will be delayed.
    @Boostking and I have been fighting a top-end stutter when we dial up the boost past 20psi. It has been random and I have tried a bunch of things to try and figure it out.
    Well, last night I think I finally sorted it out. After putting the pieces together (Bank 1 goes a tad richer than Bank 2 when it stutters, #2 plug is slightly darker than the rest and #2 Piston is cleaner than the rest), it looks like #2 injector can't handle higher duty cycles.

    So, @RMB_Ryan is gonna flow test a set for me and get them up to me ASAP. Definitely a bummer, but we'll get it sorted and then strap the old girl down to the roller and see how she does. On the bright side, I'm glad I found it and I'll be much happier now when driving it and flogging the sh*t out of it.
    BRoell and RMB_Ryan like this.

    Again, it takes SO many pieces working in harmony to get the potential out of these complicated TT's.

    Would be so much simpler to be satisfied with what they are capable of when they are working at 40 or 50 or even 70% of that. Lol

    What's wrong with us?

    For sure, I don't get upset over stuff like this. If I ran it at stock power levels, or even at levels around 400whp, it would be 100% fine.

    What's wrong with us? The desire to have more "fun" than the average bear.

    Onwards and upwards.

    Dyno has been re-booked for June 12th. This should give me enough time to get it up and running 100%.

    It will be "cool" by Texas standards, lol. I booked in the morning again, so should be around 15* Celsius (59*f).

    It would have been ideal if I could have hit the 31st. It is only going to be around 10*Celsius (50*f), but all well.
