    She fired right up yesterday. Everything seems good. I'm currently running a safe map with 4500rpm & 9psi boost limits. There's a little dip at idle but I think that will go away with further tuning. I'm going to hook up the EGT & WBO2 this week along with some other tweaks here & there. I need to permanently mount the new BCS, persuade the IC brackets so the IC doesn't rub on the hood, etc. I can definately feel the extra torque from the motor & the P/P manifolds & heads. I also feel the added NVH from the Group N motor mounts but that was expected.

    That first start up must be unnerving ...

    Oh, it sure was. We primed the motor/turbo by pulling the ignition fuse & turning it over a bunch of times. We put the fuse back in & she was good to go.

    We turned it by hand first while it was still on the motor stand just to make sure there was no interference.

    Sorry I didn't call you. It's been a long few days. I'll do that now.

    I got the Innovate WBO2 controller & the Autometer EGT gauge & sensor in. I couldn't use the Autometer WBO2 digital gauge with the Innovate controller because they are both standalone units. I opted to go with the Innovate controller & i'm ordering their XD-16 WBO2 digital gauge. Now all I have to do is pick up a DB9 to USB cable for my laptop. I'm off to do that now!

    Nice! I'm hoping to score their DB kit before Dom comes out again.

    Everything is good to go. She fired right up & is reading the EGT & WBO2 signals correctly. I love it when a plan comes together. I'm going to do an oil change & put some more miles on her.

    Did you get it all tuned up, or are you still running a base tune?

    I'm interested in seeing the numbers you get.

    Let me know when it comes time for the tune - I'll try to put away some "gas money" until then

    I'm still running a base tune. I'm waiting to hear back from the tuner as to when he has an opening. It's a road tune, so i'll have to find a dyno to get some numbers. I think the closest AWD dyno to me is Moon Performance in Lake Placid.
