Back up and running with new tune on TT notch
After blowing headgaskets at the track, I made a number of changes while the car was apart.
1) switched explorer intake for edelbrock performer
2) added 3G alternator
3) added mark VIII fan
4) FRRP AC eliminator to replace old march one I had
5) Replace broken plastic PMAS MAF with metal one (free replacement under warrenty)
6) Changed location of IAT and coolant gauge sensor to be proper
The combination of changes had the car running horrible. Limped it up to SGS (used to be Kauffmans) and had it redynoed and tuned. Not a very willing patient was my notch. Major ordeal to get the old O2 sensor bung plugs out to fit the wideband. The wires kept pulling the dist away from where it was supposed to be set before the final tightening. Anyway, 2 hours later on the dyno she is running sweet again. This time the tune is more conservative. Actually very conservative with 19 degrees of total timing. Making 416/502 to the wheels. Previous number with 23 degrees of timing were 426/520. Don't know if it matters but the old numbers were done in like 10 or 20 degree weather and this was mid 90s. But I am just happy to be able to drive around and enjoy the car.
