It soem how actually starting to work.
i added a AFPR on thursday set at 39psi at idle, so im running ok, still kinda lean but better.

today i took the "non-working turbo" and intercooelr out of the intake system.
i have a paiced of exhuast tube i bent up going right to the VAM.
with the K&N on there it loud as hell sinc eit has lil to no pick up annoying. but im actually starting to feel a power increase and the im not runnign as lean.
tomorro wi hope to take the turbo cartrige out anf put a piece of sheet metal welded tot he housign so the exhuast doesnt have to run through a seized turbo, hoping agian to get soem more power and fuel efficanicy out of it.

i relaly have nothign to lose doign this.
i average around 11mpg right now. sdo doign this shoudl incrase that at least.
im learnign alot doign this and playign around, so maybe the next TC will actualy be a big motor witht eh help of turbo.

im honestly enjoying a non-turbo car.
and hopfully in the next few weeks i may be aquiring another TC that i wil drive.
and this "butchtered" RTC wil be parted and maybe sold as a rollign shell (its main intentiong when i bought it)

tony if you read this call me to discuss details!

well the timign is set at 10* reatarded, she kinda pings still, i think the "pinging" isnt pinging, but since i have a seized turbo charger on tehre maybe that it?
i dunno im confused, i have the a/f guage taped iright intot he 02 sensor and it shows lean most of the time.
but yea fill it up and i onyl go 250 miles.
