    I don't know if the MS3 works the same as the MSII in regards to the VR sensor but mine works like a champ with the stim. I get clean RPM signals, injectors are firing and so are the coils. Something goes screwy when I have it on the car and am getting extra/missing teeth on the tooth logger.

    hey diller do you think it's possible you're seeing some interference from some other wiring on the car, say if cranking the engine with the starter causes electrical interference? or are you just turning the motor by hand?

    This is a very real possibility but I have a lot working against any noise from the starter. Shielded wires, noise reducing resistors, and all wiring away from the high amp stuff.

    Me thinking its something strange going on with the sensor or in the MS itself.

    Im not sure if you have one or not but if you can get your hands on a lab scope that would narrow the possibilities down. Scope the crank sensor and see if you get an intermittent drop out due to a bad sensor.

    That would be great but no luck getting a hold of one. I am going to try to get an EDIS 6 module to handle the ignition and that should make the system more robust as well. I'm really interested to see how yours goes. Hurry up haha

    1-7/8th primary tubing going to 2-1/2" outlets. 2.5" crossover piping to a t4 flange. The turbo will be mounted in the fog light area with the inlet of the turbo facing forward. A scavenge pump will be used and 3" piping will go through the lower control arm all the way out to the rear bumper. All 304 stainless with tig welds.

    I have pics of my new intake manifold and fuel rails. Looks sweet. I'll upload more tomorrow when I'm on my laptop

    I can't believe it's been almost 2 years since I last worked on my car. Time goes by too fast.

    Nice build. What kind of power and 1/4 mile times you expecting?

    I've had the hopes of 800 to the wheels for a while. More than likely I'll crank the boost up to 30 and just to get a number but then leave it at 20psi or so for street use.

    Cool that is a lot of power. What fuel do you plan on running? You still have ac in there? I didn't see the compressor mounted but saw the freon line running to the condenser.

    More than likely it'll just be 93 octane 99.8% of the time which is probably good for 600 horse without pinging. E85 isn't as abundant as it was 7 years ago. Nobody sells it anymore. C110-c116 is always in stock at the speed shop a few miles down the road though.

    I'm keeping a functional a/c system, at least the cold part. I won't have a functional heater because it's Florida and it was 80 degrees outside on Christmas day this past year.
    As for 1/4 mile times, I don't know. Might run low 10's on pump gas? The power will be there, Wether it hooks up on low profile drag radials or not is another story.

    The heads are 93 SC heads with Chevy LS valves. 1.94 intake 1.68 exhaust. Full port/polish. Combustion chamber was smoothed out and valves unshrouded. Some kind of "custom" valve spring from Dave dalke good for .700 lift and high rpm. They have a ton of closed seat pressure though. IIRC something like 150lbs closed where stock is 70lbs closed? It's been a few years.
