i am 100 percent sure i have belt slip as if i try revving the engine quick it will only hit 7 psi but if i bring it up slow then hit it it show 11.7 and we had 14 on the dyno so i am adding another 6 rib belt so there will be two 6 rib belts running the supercharger so that should take care of any slip.

Ok i found finally a dead time of 1.14 ms at 14 Volts so the Megasquirt is asking for the 13.2 volts so i am going to set it at 1.2 ms and i will go from there as it might take a bit more due to it is 65 psi fuel pressure instead of the 43.5 psi

You know the more i learn the more i am disappointed in the tuner i paid as he should have looked at all the settings to make sure they where set to the right basic settings before he even tried to get it to run right as he spent so much time messing with it just trying to get it to not stall out when you let off the throttle because of wrong settings and i feel i am pay for him to figure out what is wrong and correct it like the dead times for the injectors now the car is not stalling every time i shift gears now that i corrected it

Disagree. Less boats. More Audi/Fiero in this thread. Zero interest in anything other than Fiero stuff in these forums.

Actually, YOU don't know how wrong you are. I've been reading M's posts from way back before you can imagine. On my other computer I have a pic of him with a swollen face from a procedure he had about a decade ago. The world isn't so big.

Mark, the most apropos description I ever heard was that a boat is nothing more than a hole in the water to pour money into.

LOL, no it's a side profile pic and something on your face is swollen. Don't remember the reason though. It wasn't permanent is all I remember. Would've posted it last year if I could get in that computer.

That boat is from the mid 70's I guess. I used to drool over those back then. At the time, the Philly Boat Show at the civic center was a yearly destination for me.

I have a sickness already i am thinking of how to make more power with this boat engine and i haven't even had it out on the lake Horse power & speed is my drug of choice as i am a Adrenalin junky. I like the idea this guy had a pair of Holset HX35 on a 455 Oldsmobile with nothing really that trick https://www.youtube.com/wat...inue=3&v=cI9abUVy0Uc

I also have a problem with, "if some is good, more is better, too much is just enough"... Somewhere along the line one project wasn't enough... ( I blame Stacy David ) There are days I walk into my shop and wonder, "My god, what have I done"...
