Just because "MASE" sets your AFR to 11.5 and timing to 16 degrees, it doesnt mean it is going to make more power than if some guy down the road does the same thing.

The awesome exhaust that Justin made for my car is sitting on a couch in my garage, the dump pipe is pretty fun to drive around with.

LOL I know.. just not all that excited about the car anymore. I need to install it, verify the downpipe length and how much needs trimmed before the flex joint. Thats why that part wasnt welded on yet. Then its a matter of removing the downpipe and welding on the Vband.. and adding a bung for the wb02.

Not much to report. I knocked out a few odds and ends. Hopefully I'll be able to get back to working on this thing after the 12th.

Oh yeah, I ordered a speedhut double gauge pod for the dodge neon. Fits like complete ass. There has got to be a better fitting one. Anyone know?

I'd assume you already purchased your gauges but ill throw this out there anyway. PLX makes a very thin digital gauge about 1/2" thick, and it can monitor 16 different sensors. It's called a DM-6, I used a very thin double stick tape and installed it on the flat part of the dash under the RPM tach. Im currently using it for wideband AFR and boost but plan on adding additional sensors, it works well.

I have a Aeroforce Interceptor and a LC1 wb02. Granted, the aeroforce has an .5v input for the wbo2 but, since I have the gauge, I might as well run it.

I drove the car to the exhaust shop today. It actually ran fairly well! The alignment makes it feel really loose though. They are going to fit the exhaust and weld it all up and do an alignment on it. I really dont think they are going to be able to do that last job, so I may end up taking it to Lamar's. Then, if all goes well (oh, please not ANOTHER jinx) its off to be tuned.....

So I noticed a few things while driving around today. Here they are:

Doesn't like to hot start. It will start, it just struggles. It has a new battery and is kept on a battery tender at night. IIRC it has 700cca. I think it may be in the tune though.

1st & 3rd are difficult to engage. It feels like a throw issue. I have played with the custom cables a bit but haven't quite got them right yet. They are the new cables from California Push Pull specifically for the F23 swap.

Something doesn't feel right with the engine/trans mounts. it feels like the engine is trying to move around. I need to double check it. I know I check eveything while the cradle was out. I guess I may need to upgrade the trans mounts, they are the stock items.

Alignment is WAY off.

IDK, I havent got on it yet. It only has a base map from ZZP in it. Once the exhaust is fitted and a bung is added for the wbo2 I can start datalogging. Then ZZP (Turbo Tim) should be able to dial her in a bit.

I wouldnt expect much if any tuning needed afterwards... You are really used to running jank speed density systems or something because maf cars like this are cake.

If there ever were a time when I wished you were right, this would be it. Though what about the hard start when hot issue? I know you looked at the datalogs, and I haven't done any adjustments like you suggested. Mostly because I didnt understand what I was looking at in HPT (hey atleast I am honest!). It acts like there is too much timing during cranking. But only when its hot. Also, the coolant temps were pretty much dead on 185 all day.

OHHHH!!!! I almost forgot!!!!!!


Turbo Tim suggested something really cool. My HPT is the basic kit. It doesnt have the input on the side of the controller for the wbo2 input. Had I paid attention when I bought the damn thing, I would have got the deluxe version... Anyway, he suggested I take the 5v sensor lead from my LC1 (white or green, I cant remember) and run the wire to the EGR pin of the ECU. That way it will log the wbo2. Pretty neat huh?

I have never had a car not start on me... Typically any idle issues are related to lack of timing with the st5 cam, but unlikely to cause starting issues. Most long crank situations would be related to fuel pressure issues.

Its not a long crank, its a hard crank.. Ever take a distributor car and give it too much/little advance? It will hit, then pause, then crank. That is exactly what mine is doing.

That sounds like a great idea. I'm in your same situation, basic kit and I want a wideband sensor. Be sure to post how it turns out!

Front mount battery?
I hate to say "check your grounds", but...

What about your cable size? What about your connections, especially at the starter?

I'm running at least a #2 wire from the battery to the starter.
My grounds are two #4s from the engine to the frame, and one #4 from the battery to the stud where the brake booster mounts.
I have no difficulties whatsoever starting a 4.9. Hot or not.

I'm using a gear reduction starter (from an Allante) now. I used to have heat soak issues with the stock 4.9 starter.
Make sure you've got the correct starter. (I understand that L67s were supposed to have a gear reduction starter) and that it's good.
If it looks like a stock Fiero starter, I'll bet it probably is. I understand they'll interchange.

I gotta say, that's one sweet looking exhaust. Very well executed.

If some supplier could fab these for a 2.8l, I bet there would be more
than a few people interested. Plus...its a Borla.

Probably the best fabbed up cat. back I've seen here for quite some time.

They would have to get the attachment bracket points right on for a "factory" fit.

You will need to create a custom PID to make the wideband read from the EGR. I can pm you the details if you need assistance setting it up. I've set them up to read the LC1 and the AEM widebands.

Great work bro... You should have done this all yourself from the beginning and saved yourself the headache and $$$$! Awesome car, I'm waiting on a dyno video then a road video.

What about your cable size? What about your connections, especially at the starter?

I'm running at least a #2 wire from the battery to the starter.
My grounds are two #4s from the engine to the frame, and one #4 from the battery to the stud where the brake booster mounts.
I have no difficulties whatsoever starting a 4.9. Hot or not.

I'm using a gear reduction starter (from an Allante) now. I used to have heat soak issues with the stock 4.9 starter.
Make sure you've got the correct starter. (I understand that L67s were supposed to have a gear reduction starter) and that it's good.
If it looks like a stock Fiero starter, I'll bet it probably is. I understand they'll interchange.


It is a FMB! Not sure on the cables, they actually look like the Norms kit I have. Both cables are ran to the engine. However, I am going to add a few additional grounds since it can hurt.
It also has the gear reduction starter. I am so used to Fiero's, that was one of the first things I went to upgrade. LOL.


BMWGuru, I'd love to see what you did! Definitely PM me the info please.

Gadjet, I know, I know.. Hindsight and all. She is getting there.

I just stopped at the muffler shop to pay the bill during my lunch break. WOW!!! This thing sounds amazing. I cant really explain it. It doesnt have that typical 3800 "tractor" sound. It has a very unusual, flat plane crank Ferrari sound.

I have to pick it up tonight and then drop it off at Lamar's Alignment shop. Expect pics and vids in the next day or so. Its really killing me now. I cant wait to get this thing tuned and driving on a regular basis. WOOOHOOO .... Yeah, I am a bit excited.
