    How are the fuel lines plumbed to each rail? Could do a quick check to make sure fuel is getting to the driver’s side too?

    My bad, I'm not really on here on weekends. Only when I'm at work.

    If you need the fans still PM me I think I'll get an email. But it sounds like you've got that solved and found other gremlins.

    Is it possible the pump could have picked up something in the tank and now damaged or sending insufficient pressure? Or something in the tank is clogging the rail?

    Can you swap the rails with injectors easily or swap injectors?
    But I'm doubtful that multiple inj got plugged or seized at the same time.

    Start looking at the wiring. Squeeze the loom and see if you can maybe figure out when it comes to life and there's a broken wire in there.

    Check the Term X software for number of cylinders and injection type, at some point mine changed and wasn't even thinking i had 8 cylinders haha.. I went over everything 10 times then was poking around on my global config file and saw that...

    Crank sensor wire was resting against plug wire

    Seems to have fixed most issues. Tried to die outside Three Hills with the same issue, revving the piss out of it helped get signal back maybe.

    Running a shielded, grounded wire sucks. But might be the answer. Or just moving that sensor wire elsewhere.

    Footnote: if you ever do anything like this, 4L80 is da way, just say no to a turbo 400.

    Made it to Hardisty last night, 37*C ambient temp, was about 50 in the car.

    Sometimes you have to improvise

    Got to Forestburg this morning, noticed a clunk. Found an axle wanting to leave for better places.

    Lucked out that I had some random grade 2 bolts kicking around and scrounged some off the guy next to me (thanks dude whose name I don"t know!)

    Track is open now for hotlaps, so I should be able to get my 3-4 passes in.

    Running 85psi fuel pressure now at the track, worked on my footbrake technique with this stock converter, and increased rev limiter to 7200rpm

    Hahahaha the sun shield is great. Good to hear the car is mostly holding up, this is a really good shakedown for it. By the end of the week any possible issue will be sorted and it's turbo time

    Axle wanted to leave so bad it decided to take the caliper with it...

    This happened in Bashaw. Basically the yuge calipers the original owner installed are mounted via the bearing retainer plates. So all the force from braking is placed through 4 1/4" bolts. Needless to say, the grade 2 chinesium bolts I installed didn't stand up to the first hit of the brakes at highway speed.

    Rolled into Rimbey at 830pm, about 2 hours behind schedule. Today was supposed to be the relaxed day... Tomorrow is Rimbey to Medicine Hat ��

    Ran an 8.5 today, best mph so far at 90. With a converter alone, car should be well into the 7's in the 1/8th or around 11.5 in the 1/4.

    Being in school in two weeks, I don't think I can justify a torque converter purchase.

    But next season, I expect I'll have a jegs xhd lockup converter in it by the start of the season. See how well it runs, then slap the turbski setup on for Miles of Mayhem.

    6 point rollbar is good to 6.39 in the 1/8th but that would be realllllllly pushing the budget for 2023. The GT45 might get me into the 8's, mission accomplished, but that remains to be seen.
