          • Thanks guys!

            Yeah Dan, but it is gonna feel good, too. :)

            We just got in from PR. I can't wait to get back to tuning this thing tomorrow. The computer is waiting for me at the Post Office and these beauties were sitting on the poorch.


            Rimz!

              • Well, the IAC control burned out in short order again. :mad::banghead::what:

                Sean recommended I fabricate up some sort of manual IAC. It was a lot easier than I thought and now the idol is ideal. Started right up. Hoping to put some miles on this today and tomorrow.

                • Cut an extra IAC in half, turn down the tip of a half inch fine thread bolt to match the head of the IAC valve. Threaded the IAC part and assembled. It started right up. No problems yet & fingers crossed!

                    • Thanks Ed.

                      Just got in from a road tuning session with Sean. Pushing 6 pounds of boost and it pulls very nicely. :cool::):):)

                        • IAC is definitely needed, but looks like I can work around it until I can send this computer back.

                          Been driving it around the past two days. A few glaring problems need to be addressed:
                          - Leaking or oil out of the fuel pump block-off plate and the rear output seal on the t-case.
                          - having some sort of fuel delivery issue when the tank is down to 1/3 full. Not looking forward to going back into the fuel cell.
                          - The front u joints are binding. Looks like the aftermarket alloy routers are much beefier and hitting the stock yokes. Gonna have to pull those and grind them.

                          Still running in open loop with the computer. Planning on doing more tuning tomorrow. Nevertheless this thing pulls amazingly. Drove it down 22 tonight and can't wipe the smile off my face. With just 6 pounds of boost, who needs a v8?

                          Did some urban wheeling at our favorite loading dock. Got to test the flex and check for clearance issues. The rear links hit the frame & work perfectly as bump stops. May have to put air pumps in there eventually. The front flexes very well, but the drag link hits the frame on the passenger side.

                          The 32's just cleared without any rubbing. The 37th are definitely going to rub. I see a sawzall in the near future. Going back to the loading dock with them on one night soon.

                          • Looks real good Peter. I'm sure those 37's will some good rubbin.

                              • Spent atleast 4 hours today grinding and tweaking the front shafts. The aftermarket shafts leave alot to be desired in their fit. I was only getting 28 out of the drivers side. Now i have about 45 out of both. Too bad the knuckles don't go that far. ;)






                                Krawlers are on. The rears required some Sawzall work. Got a chance to test them out tonight.
