    I reserve the quality beer as a reward after the fact. I'm a bit too stupid to be challenging my remaining brain cells with the presence of alcohol; I don't want to forget to torque something important, etc.

    I can keep it together for a couple of beers. Oh, wait, what is this dust boot doing sitting here


    Looks like my lower isolators are toast so I have to wait until tomorrow to re-install. I might need a beer before I manually hack another one of these rears in half because it is getting to sort of suck without being able to use the pipe cutter.

    I have to say it is pretty sweet to have the folks here to point out the perfect suspension to make a proper sports car with no trial & error.

    First brief test drive - I'm not sure how it is possible to put on so much stiffer springs and still have a more supple ride than stock. I didn't wring it out fully but it felt very very nice in the corners.

    Now for an alignment and put the summer wheels back on. I'll probably start a new thread so people can title search for the pic because I couldn't find any for wagons on the regular RCE springs.

    Been working on my tune a bit. I took a little weird linearity out of the 50g/s range that is in the stock scaling (IDKW). This brought the D learning up from the -4 (which was pulling back out the 4% I had added by reducing the injector scaler). I then added a ramp up to 3% increase in g/sec across the mid and top end so that my g/rev came up a bit (it always seemed low compared to road dyno and kept just barely putting me down in weird transitional areas in the timing map). I just laid out a scale of adjustment factors across the spreadsheet by eye and then drug a formula across it. Ends up going 0.2 rich in one area WOT and the rest is really close (11.1 target). I'll work on that later (much easier to live with than being lean) and hopefully be able to get some more timing back in.

    Look for the little weird bulge at 50g/sec in the stock map on left graph, new curve is on the right

    I need to get back into tweaking this tune.

    Mostly though, I just found this old tired thread to move it to builds.
