well today during work i was not doing to much it was slow so i wired up the water / methanol and now my megasquirt 3x runs it i did run a check and it all works the only thing i don;t know right now is if the solenoid is a fast acting or slow acting but i have asked who i bought it from but have not heard back yet

no just data loging and din't need any more info so just let off for third gear . ok have found some info on intake air temp wit roots style supercharger and it said 13 to 14 degrees of heat rise fro evey pound of boost so 13 x 16.9= 219.7 degrees addwd to the ambiant air temp so if you start with 60 degree air then add 219.7 it is 279.7 degrees so i now know my water / methonal kit is working due to the temp out side was 50 and 219.7 i should have seen 269.7 but with the water / methanol injection i saw a 160 degree temp so that is 109 degrees lower that is good news

It was me, and ear buds is how I heard it. Glad it was useful info because it would seriously suck to have a simple issue cause a problem. You don't hear it o the 4th gear shift where you lay off the pedal.
sorry about that sourmash so i just made the corection and that is how heard it is with the ear buds infact i went to the video before that and listend and dint hear it but i did change the way i am running the water methanol injection so like i said i started it at a lower boost and rpm

kinda funny now after when this car was first conceived years ago when we where talking about a longitudinal V8 Fiero and i thought i could do it and there where those who said i could never do it without streching it or i just would not do it at all i can now say you doubter now need to go eat Crow LOL . I thought i would also add thanks to all of you who stood by me and gave me good ideas and even a kick in the back side when needed .

well when i start feeling like it i will start working on the body and interior as the body got beat up a bit and i want to make a few changes and i need to get a interor in it for next summer it just isn't that much fun to me infact i don't find it fun at all where i do find it fun to do the engine swap and all the mechanical work .
i do have to say after looking at my car i think i still like the look of a fiero gt body better but since my wheel and tire combo i dont think will work with the stock body and i like Archie's wide body kit and would love to do that and maybe i will if i make enough money as the shop should pick up with tire changes .
There's a guy on the facebook group that did a flared-fendered formula fastback. Kinda like an old school rolled fender. Subtle, but nice, and enough to let you run some wide tires. Might check that out.
well i have decided to do somthing even a bit different i am going to graft in a GT fast back into the Testarossa rear body as i have one that is cut up some but i have that part intact and i think it will look good so hang on for some body mods it will be a good winter project for me and i think it will make it look better more fiero like
well today i pulled the fastback that i had cut part of the skins off and it is perfect for what i want i will be ripping into it this next weekend i even found on Ebay quarter window scoops with the window in them that are brand new

Ok guy's & gals i am at a undecided delema i am not sure if i should keep the body on the car but with a fiero fastback as shown in the post above or go back to the fiero GT body but use those new school fender flares i posted any thoughts i think my fit and finish will look much better with the gt body

i am 5.9 not to tall so i should be fine just need to watch my head getting in the car but i do think it would make the car look better i want some one to photo chop this photo so i can get a idea of what it would look like
I know this is all very subjective, but in my opinion your car looks great from the front of the doors to the back of the car, including the current custom rear roof line. I feel that installing the GT fastback (chopped or not) would be a mistake... but yes, I realize it's not my car.
