Well I can sure understand the frustration. Lol. I have asked Kurt for a date that they can look at it. Apparently there extremely busy. I'm ready to take it down there as u and the commander have suggested.

I'm sure for you they would make an exception to get it focused on quicker...I mean you did already pay HPF to check it over for you and it's clear the problem was missed. I'm sure John will personally QC the car and you'll have her running in prestine shape...for the first time that is.

FYI. One thing I learned through the TPS ALIGNMENT was that the throttles were slow in operation. It flagged them as 491 ms an was out of range being out of spec / too slow. I used WD40 on the throttle shaft, springs and TPS shaft. It solved the problem right away and it passed the test. So it would be good to make sure the linkage is oiled from time to time.

Ah, definitely good to know man, thanks for the info. Hope you get some good scheduling feedback from HPF soon. I know John will get you squared away man.

I bought an add on that not a lot of people use because of the cost. They are not cheap, but once you install one (5 minutes) and use it, you are glad you spent the $$.
Some guy from Greece developed a faster throttle response, almost as good as eliminating the electronic throttle. Maybe its even faster!

Sprint Booster Power Converter. read the link i provide. It is like a Sport button on steroids. Your Sport button will enhance the Sprint even more. I run on the track with both enabled. It makes a huge difference in throttle response. I would never dream being with out it from now on.

i picked one up for 200 the other day. can't wait to try it out. i hate the idea of full throttle at half pedal effort but well see how i like it in practice.

Spoke to HPF. Now that I have run GT1 TPS calibration and my AEM has been setup to log my TPS voltage I can have the correct map set at idle to my TPS voltage. This should solve my AFR problem. I'll be sending the AEM out this week.

I had some white spray on the underside of my hood. Found out my rad hose was leaking at the clamp by the water pump. I thought initially it was oil coming out of the blow off valve as the spray pattern was just above it on the hood. So that was an easy fix. Still waiting on my new 6766 turbo to arrive. one of my winter projects planed for the car.

It was a good find for sure. I'm still going thru a 1/2 a quart every 1000 km and my my combined city and highway mileage has been 14.2 per 100km. The oil is turbo seal related and when I upgrade very soon it will take care of my oil and idle afr as the new tune will also be set to my TPS voltage. So ill be all set in the next few weeks.

Remember, your "Sport" button will still work. The Booster plus the "Sport" button will give you maximum throttle opening. Disable the Sport button if that proves to be too much.

Please let us know how it works with a turbo charged application. Hopefully, good. It works great with NA or a Super Charger. I found it indespensible on the track. It takes a bit getting used to. On the street, do NOT let off in first and then re pedal, your car may buck horribly. Always simply shift up to second if you ever have to let off in first gear. That became a natural thing to do after a while.
Sorry for the jack, but being3, you would LOVE this item, I think.
And super congrats on the 6766. That is THE turbo to have right now.

I like the stock feel of the throttle for the turbo. It helps in modulating the throttle in the lower gears for traction a lot easier for me. For the highway I use the sport button when i m in prey mode. I have a question what is the best rim size and off set and maximum tire width for r car?

Well AEM shipped to HPF to get a revised map for my new 6766. So resolved Afr and more power in the horizon hope the weather holds up of a few pulls before putting it away for the winter. Just mounted snows in my truck lol

Congrats on the new turbo. And pinpointing your car issues to be in good working order. Good things come to people that wait, or throw a crazy amount of time, money, and parts at a car that was bought in "good" working order. LOL. Such a shame that you had to go through all of this.

The seller and company gave you a real curve ball saying that everything was in good working order. It really pisses me off because you went about the sale the way everyone says you should, getting the car inspected and not just buying without having a thorough check and still you got screwed, it really scares me because I'm thinking of selling my car and buying one with a kit already installed to save some money.

Funny how the seller was one of the most vocal members and was quick to judge anyone who scammed or wasn't completely honest about an issue...such bs! Anyway I'm glad that you got everything sorted out and now have a sick M, wich is gonna be even more crazy with the new turbo. Best wishes and I hope you have clean sailing from here on out.

HPF looked at my TPS voltage that was now being monitored in my logs and verified that my idle was registering a 4% throttle by the AEM at idle giving me the subsequent rich condition. HPF changed my AEM to my idle TPS voltage accordingly and I'm all set. ( For some reason my new TPS sensors have a different base voltage than what has typically been seen by HPF) Should have the AEM here in a few days to verify.

Once verified ill I commence with the 6766 upgrade in the next week or so.
