lol I would if there was anything to say. I got the SCT Advantage Software and I'm borrowing a chip burner from Jess, now we just have to get the stupid thing running right. I am starting to get tired of working on it.

I'm guessing you are talking about one of the build pictures. That was just getting the right belt length; you can't exactly go to the parts store and get one by application.

Don't stop though... its something unique. I'm glad to see someone doing it. When I get the time and the money that is what I plan on doing. Probably with the SC supercharger as well (easy to find). I know you said its not running right, but how much of a gain have you noticed?

Yeah I am trying not to get discouraged. There is a LOT more power. It is very impressive how much more power it makes, it is just impossible to drive. It stalls and bogs at part throttle and idle. It likes to go fast and that's it.

i was thinking turbo but in the back of my head i remembered the super coupe.

this is a killer idea and yeah, i do like a sleeper"tubo hidden" in a plain wrapper but damn the mad max factor of a supercharger sticking thru the hood makes me smile from ear to ear.

looking forward to seeing more

Alright, well I got a different MAFS that I actually have the transfer function for and re-tuned it again and it is MUCH better. Still not perfect, but better. Now I feel like I have a good baseline tune to work off of. I am trying to borrow a standalone wideband from a friend to get the rest of the kinks worked out.

Things are looking up finally. I can't wait to get the A/F ratio dialed in so I can take it to the track and break stuff. haha

Thanks Stig!
