Moved the lift in the shop, I had the Brunton tucked in front of the lift, and while it was a good use of space it wasn’t easy to work on and it made the lift a little too close to the door, so I’m gonna try this out and see how it goes :)

Small side projects on the Alfa as stuff comes in the mail, just looking things over for a plan. I bought a 1JZ Toyota fuel rail since the bore spacing is the same for the Alfa as the Toyota. Well lucky me the Alfa spaced their injectors unevenly with more space between the pairs of throttle bodies, you can see how slanted the injector is in one of the pictures. But lucky for me the rail is machined for little 11mm o rings not the 14mm stuff that’s common place on a lot of USDM stuff, so I have wiggle room! I’m going to offset machine the holes in the rail to open them up for the larger o ring and get them much much more centered. I’ll have the two inner injectors perfect and the outer injectors will be at a slight angle with just 1mm of offset between the hole in the manifold and the hole in the rail.

Some of the cool epoxy gifts we made this year, I don’t take enough pictures still and I’m trying to get better, the rest of the gifts I’ll just have to wait for people to hang them up then I can get pictures of them :) we are going to attempt to start an Etsy store, or add a section of our current Shopify store to make and sell things this year outside of tshirts, I enjoy the epoxy stuff a bit too much and it’s fun to learn on so I’ll keep expanding our capacity :)

Here’s the W***y Wagon in all of its glory, Peyton loved it, as the artist I wish I had done better on parts, but all in all it’s pretty cool! Last year I built her a Leyat Helica this year the Wagon, which is twice as big, how many years will it take before I hide and build a whole car!? :p

I’m still getting used to needing to take pictures of the crazy things that happen in a day, like us making sure the truck with a hay bale clears the drivethru at Panda Express today or like yesterday when I tried balancing the winter wheels for the TT and found it full of slime… this picture is found on the internet, and appears to be a motorcycle, but it’s exactly what we found yesterday when the wheels balance changed with each spinning :p

Found me some winter wheels for the TT, quite the flashback as these TSW Kyalami’s are the same model of the first set of aftermarket wheels I ever bought for my Fiero back in 2007!! These popped up on marketplace and were cheap and not summer spec tires so I got lucky and picked them up this morning :) The 17s look a fair bit smaller than the 18s but mostly they just show how much this car needs lowered :)

Since I took this photo I’ve added the steering column, and the perspective of just how cramped everything is on a Lotus Seven replica come to light, even a widened one! I’m going to have to trim the top of the brake pedal to clear the clamp bolt on the steering shaft, at about 1/2 travel of the pedal it has a slight interference, I’ll see if I can move or change the slip joint on the column, but with a car like this, it’s all about being right on the edge of interfering and having enough space :p

Now that I’ve driven the 944 a fair amount I can give my opinion on this 60s datsun brake booster as an alternative to a full manual conversion with engine swaps in 944s.
I didn’t change the pedal ratio from stock and compared to my Rabbit with manual brakes, that are designed as manual brakes, I would say they feel just like the rabbits brakes but for light braking it feels even more like power brakes. So they feel like manual brakes, but proper manual 7:1 ratio feel vs just removing the booster and hoping for the best :p

Did some tuning in the TT tonight, helping a friend with the same @ecumaster_official EMU Black stand-alone on a 3.2l VR6, and sure enough, we left the settings in the ecu alone and the motor is pinging like crazy at stock levels of timing. We adjusted his crank angle to match mine and added a fair bit of timing(which should have canceled each other out) and he feels it lost a ton of power! Since I’ve been running on that “low power” setting for a long time now I wanted to try his way, swapped to the base trigger angle, pulled a bunch of timing and the car felt so much crisper, but pinged like crazy! So I sit here enjoying the extra power, but hating what the numbers look like :p

If that wasn’t nerdy enough :p right now if somehow @ecumasterusa got this base tune right it would suggest that at 1psi with 64 degree air coming into the turbo and 2 degrees of timing advance I’m commanding too much and getting knock. Now other important note, this knock is audible! It’s not just the sensor being out of calibration, I can hear the motor making the rattling sound of pinging.

12/16/2021

Cleaning up in the shop and putting stuff in it’s proper place so I took the time to tear down the Alfa Spica injection intake manifold, the throttle bodies themselves are very short so hopefully tucking a fuel rail in here won’t be much of a challenge at all, but now is the time to plan out injector height and rail location, the bore center is the same as a 1JZ so I am ordering a billet fuel rail from one to cut up and adapt, if all goes well I might try and get the injector ports drilled out for injector o rings and get this ready for the GTV 1750 so when it warms up it can possibly be driven!

More nerd stuff :p I bought a license to the older version of desktop dyno to see what I could learn about cams for the Brunton Stalker build. I wanted to see if I could achieve 300whp with the 3900 with the stock heads potential flow. I did my best to tweak the numbers to get the motor to run the stock 240hp 240trq and all I could achieve was 240hp and 260trq, which actually was way closer to what my virtual dyno numbers are saying about the 3900 Fiero I built so I felt good starting there. Now the big numbers shown here are with ITBs, large headers, and a BIG cam, even with the relatively low flow of the stock heads, It claims upwards of 375hp and 325trq, and with the wildest cam it has preset it said I could manage 475hp at 8000rpms! Won’t ever aim for that, but nice to know if I go crazy I can make pretty big hp with these heads and motor :)

WARNING NERDY POST:

I’ve been fighting this issue for awhile and would love if anybody knows anything that can help it would be greatly appreciated.

I am running ECUmasters’ EMU Black on my 2004 3.2 Turbo Audi TT, I just helped install an EMU Black Plug and Play on an 04 R32. We haven’t confirmed timing on the R32 but it’s running well on the 56 degree trigger angle and my TT required an input of 80 to get the numbers to match.

Does anybody know if the R32 and TT wire their crank sensors differently? I’m wondering if my polarity is flip flopped or why it might be off, and my TT’s timing drifts negative with increasing RPMs, I feel that has to be helpful information too :p

On the Tube Chassis Fiero it is effectively a channeled Fiero with the floor being raised about 4" so needless to say there isn't enough room to fit most seats. Both stock Fiero seats and the racing seats out of the Rabbit pock out to top of the car :p Luckily I had some Elise seats needing a spot to be stored and they fit perfect! Sadly Elise seats are like $1000 used, well maybe even higher these days with everything going up in price. I will eventually find a second set but for now I know I have a solution :)
