I went ahead and installed the injectors with the slightly used o-rings to test the car.

AFRs are good.

Misfire remains.

Just picked up my injectors from AUS Injection in Tempe.  Ricardo is good people.


So the set in the car had two leaking injectors, and the other set had two leaking as well.   This was remedied through their cleaning process.   

Before I had a 14.4% differential and only two of the eight were close to 100% functionality

Now all eight have a differential of 2% and only two injectors fall below 100% performance.


I found out today the o-rings are on back order :(

Update:

New Fuel Tank (Spectre (GTS))
New Fuel Pump(Walbro 255)
New Fuel Filter (Wix)
Purged lines.   

Fuel pressure improved greatly.  AFR's improved greatly.  Misfire remained.

Did a cold compression test:
180
181
179
182

Found a leak in the Intake tube coupler

Found a bad leak in the intake manifold gasket due to the manifold being loose!!! Yikes

Torqued the manifold down, and Bolt checked the itbs

Replaced the coolant temp sensor.  (Turns out it's a mid 90's Accord sensor and harness plug, huh.   How did that happen?  *cough* Fida *cough lol)

Pulled the injectors, they were dirty.  Pulled the injectors from my Blacktop as well.  Dropped both sets off at AUS Injection yesterday

Ordered new injector o-rings.


And now we wait....

I'm using 1ZZ/Prius coils.   

I was pleasantly surprised how good the suspension feels straight away.   I need to dial in some things but the car feels so good on track


I just received my two new gas tanks I ordered.  Should be driving as soon as I get a day free

Fuel cell because racecar!

I saw your front-end setup, was interested to hear how it performs...

Adjusting your dwell setting should cool the coil packs.

What coils are you using?

Found the misfire issue.   Tank was so badly full of rust and mud.  Pre-screen clogged.


I've been cleaning the tank for days, not sure if I can save it.   But I did source one that was cleaned and treated with POR-15.  So I should have the car ready to go this weekend.   

Did some camber adjustments to try and get more front end grip in the car

Fixed the hydro-ebrake and confirmed she skids.



I've got a few months to get the car ready for desert meihan

So failing fuel pump/clogged pre-screen maybe?

I should have spare parts anyway.   Currently waiting for pay day to order a couple fresh Denso pumps.

🤷🏻‍♂️

Enjoy a pic

I drove this thing at the event on the 10th, kinda.   Suffered misfiring issues just before arriving to the track and battled it all night.   I got maybe 9-10 runs in with a car running 100%.  Suspension seemed close to what I want.  The front wheels offset is a bit much.   The fact that the car is basically square makes it kinda twitchy but I think I can tune and drive around that at least some.

I keep loosing coil packs.  1 they are junk yard coils, and 2, I think we found today that we were running wasted-wasted spark instead of wasted spark, so I think we can have that fixed soon.

On the upside.   KP got some rad photos of the car :)

General Discussion / Donut meet.

I'm posting this last minute, sorry


There's a meet going down tomorrow (March 4th) at Beyond Donuts at 83rd and Union Hills.  I'll be there, Fida will be there in the 1uz Corolla, maybe Dan and Pizza chris too.   Get there early cuz parking was impossible last time.   This meet is bigger than you think.  Come get sushi in the racecars and donuts for dessert. (The pastry kind, or well both I guess if you don't do the car one on site)
