    stupid weather

    It's been cold and wet/snowy, with that and my lazyness no picts yet.

    For updates sake... Matty looked at my map and gave me some pointers. I am real sporadic with my tuning process, had a tuning laptop meltdown and basically forgot where I was with my tune. Well Matty got me pointed in the right direction, I did some adjustments to my map. I flashed the updated map Monday morning, drove it around. Man it felt more alive. I didn't change that much either. Matty has good eyes or a lot of experience or both.

    So this morning, Tuesday, on the way into work, I was getting on the throttle a little to merge with traffic and "pSSSssh" . One of my hose clamps wasn't tight enough. Limped into work, found clamp and tightened it. Dude in the parking lot asked me if I needed a jump. Was like, thanks but I'm good...

    He's good. He pays a lot of attention to detail and is very meticulous with his tuning.

    woo-hoo!

    Last weekend I got my PNPed TD04 swapped back in. Had to fight with some worn out exhaust bolts but got it done.

    long story

    So I was logging my trek home today, had a little fun with the pedal on the right. And yes I was being safe, stayed with the speed limit (barely, but I did) and no one was near me.

    went from -0.95 to 16.82 manifold pressure in 2480 milliseconds (2.48 secs)

    log

    and yes the log could be prettier. my stupid tuning netbook is acting up again. got everything backed up on dropbox though so no big deal, just the fun of reinstalling all the programs and stuff. I need to stop messing around, get it up and running good and image that sucker.

    been busy...

    The wife and kids are out of town for a little bit. I'm home all alone to tinker on some projects. I've worked on my car some, worked on refinishing a table, played some video games. I've got so much "me" time I almost don't know what to do.

    But here's what you really wanna see... an update on my car.


    before:



    It was a lot dirtier on the inside than shows in the picture. Especially around the IACV


    during:




    after:



    I knife-edged the leading edge on the top and bottom of the plate. Didn't wanna do front and back and screw up my idle, not that it would if it was done. I'm lucky like that so didn't want to chance it.
    On the bottom have I pretty much just took the edge off, rounded it over a bit. I didn't take any material off of the circumference area.


    I carved it up last night, got it on this morning. When I took it off I went off and did the coolant bypass mod. I was there, had a coupler..why not?

    Alright, alright. I'll tell you what it feels like now.
    Well, since I did all that sanding and whatnot, I took off the IACV and cleaned it. Dude. That thing was funky. I seafoamed my car about a year ago, but I put it in a vacuum hose on the manifold. I cleaned it with an old toothbrush (it wasn't a used one), a q-tip and some seafoam. All sorts of black oozed out.
    So I cleaned the my IACV really well and after my wrx warmed up the idle was beautifully smooth. Like butta!

    What the PNP job did was improve throttle response, increased intake noise, and made the accelerator a bit more fun. As soon as I feel the slack tighten out of the throttle cable, I can feel the engine working and pulling the car forward. Under heavy throttle the spool/air rushing through intake noise is a little bit louder.

    Engine breaking feels a bit less pronounced, doesn't slow me down as much. I think that has to do with all the crap I cleaned out of the IACV though. Don't really know though.

    flash and dash

    So I've been real lazy working on my tune as of late. Been real snowy/icy out too. I have been studying some logs and adjusting my map. I found out why I had so much knock in the lower rpm/load. Lesson learned, double check your work, don't rush and never say "I'll fix that tomorrow.." unless you really will. I get sidetracked to easy for that.. stupid me being easily distracted.

    Anyway, polished up my map, flashed it, logged it. Good stuff so far. Only random feedback knock and I know I have a bolt missing on my downpipe. The bolt the holds it to the frame near the tranny dropped up a while ago. Me being lazy again haven't fixed it yet. Need to find a replacement bolt.

    Here's a log of my latest map, just for funnzies...
    I need to log more. Didn't really drive it through its paces yet. This is just a general errand run log, some around the neighborhood and some near highway speeds. Quite a few stop lights too. Oh the fun...

    I did my taxes in late January. I got my return today!

    Well most of it. Some of it is held up in the "backordered" process. Stupid IRS, I doubled checked my numbers.
