I got my PIMPx installed along with my ported head with big valves, BoPort 1.5 cam, new springs and simple sanded full runner intake installed and running pretty good with some minor tuning adjustments to be made to my idle and cold start. The PIMPx install was very straight forward, run the MAP hose through the firewall, cut pin 29 and solder in the wideband output wire, installed the 60lb injectors. Went through all of the guides before hand and double checked my jumper installs were correct and made sure that all of my initial setting were correct. Went through the setup guide step by step, checked my timing to ensure it was getting controlled by the PIMPx, started on the first go. Had to adjust my initial idle fuel numbers as it was too rich, but ran well. Also had to turn down my initial idle values as when I gave it some gas or put the clutch in the idle would hang at 2500 too long. Warmed it up, made sure all of my fuel numbers looked good at least initially and put it in auto tune for some easy drives. Went well, then made some low boost runs and made adjustments. Yesterday, I went for another drive and made some full throttle runs and WOW! Hit the rev limiter in 2nd gear as it was still pulling so good, never hit the limiter before as it was just sort of flat so shifted at 6 anyway, it surprised me! The cam is set at 2 degrees advanced to get a little more bottom end and it works well, the boost comes up quicker too. I am impressed.

Sounds like a great set up.   Enjoy!

It makes me happy to read this for several reasons. I'm glad you're enjoying your car and your efforts to make it better and I'm planning to do something similar. Any plans to put it on a dyno?

Man a dyno run and tune would be awesome, but honestly will probably not happen. Stinger's site has a list of some dyno tuners and the nearest one for me is about 2.5 hours away, maybe a nice day trip though would be worth it! For now, I drive it, check the tune on Tuner Studio (TS) and make adjustments as I go, the forum on Stinger's site is great for questions and answers as well, very responsive with good input. Mine has a wondering idle issue that I need to fix, but is really about me getting into TS and working the fields. There are some great youtube tutorials on his site as well that break down the different tables and what they mean.
