The car ran awesome yesterday - I was watchin the AFRs on the video and it's hard to tell because there are so many on/off throttle conditions but it seemed ok.

Do you have time to come by some night this week? I have a new fuel pump coming in tomorrow just in case.

Next event is Monday Oct 10th - one week from today! It will be my last event of the year, and my first ever lapping day at Mosport

Here it is!

Aftermarket 3.5" 540i MAF (Bosch #0 280 217 800)

Think it may be the MAF?

Hmm.... Barrie maybe we should have tried this last night

Quote:
When you are finished reading the codes, you can reset the computer and clear them all out. Make sure that the last code (1000) has occurred, and then press down on the gas pedal for more than 10 seconds. This should clear out the memory of the DME. Repeat the fault code reading process, and the computer should generate code 1444, which means that there are no faults stored.

So monday I FINALLY made it to Mosport. Carl from Perry Performance was hosting an event with the ASE lapping club

Chris decided to come with me, so we took his truck - he had just installed 20" wheels & 33" tires on his truck + a dual exhaust. It looked/sounded sweet.

We were heading down Sunday night to crash at a buddy's in Peterborough. He picked me up in Brockville since I was at my girfriend's family dinner. Well we get to Napanee and he's getting low on gas so we decide to stop at the Flying J. Chris downshifts on the off-ramp just to hear the exhaust, and then hits to brakes only to have the pedal hit the floor!

Luckily we were slowed down enough, and managed to make it in the truck stop. we get under the truck to find out his properly installed new exhaust had melted the flex line that went into the T for both rear brakes.

I phone up my sister & girlfriend, and they were willing to meet us there with my truck.... they are awesome. We tell them to hang on a bit and we'd try and fix it first.

The initial plan was to try and pinch it off, but we couldn't because it had melted right at the connector.

I'm going through my tool box and find an extra clutch slave cylinder for my BMW with a clutch line attached. I figure, what are the odds that it fits? Well sure enough, the line threads on!!! so we grab a set of vise-grips, fold the line in half and pinch it shut, electrical tape it all together & zip-tie it to the frame. I go buy some brake fluid, pump up the system, and we get pressure!!!!

We're careful since we only have front brakes, but he makes it to Peterborough, and then to Mosport monday morning.

Mosport was awesome - Carl put me in the intermediate group to start off with since i'd never been on the track. So I hop in a 517whp STi for the first advanced session to get a feel for the track. The car was insane! We were heading up the back straight almost to the end, and then all we hear is BOOM and the winshield get covered in coolant. the dude figures he popped a coolant line and we limp off track, pop the hood, find a 3" hole in the block .

So my morning was awesome - car was running weird still, but I "ignored it." If i reset the ecu before each session, it would run ok... very strange. Anyways, it survived the day with no major incidents. After lunch i was moved to the advanced group where I was much more at home. My top speed was around 215kph on the back straight, and my fastest lap time (which i did several times during the day) was a 1:38 on the contis. They were pretty much dead at the end of the day and i corded my front left tire pretty bad on the last session.

It was a bit slower than I would have hoped, but It was absolutely awesome day, and a great way to end the season.

Here's a vid of my fastest lap - I'm going to make a highlights video too.



BTW - Carl hosts AWESOME events. No point-by passing is epic... it makes it feel like racing

yeah it was an amazing day. The car was ridiculously good

However it was the end of the season for me - time to get to work!

Game plan:

1. pull engine, clean & paint engine bay
2. gut interior, build roll cage (yup - Chris & I will be doing our own, with some guidance from a local pro )
3. paint roll cage & interior
4. bodywork, bodywork bodywork
5. install lexan windows
6. Build splitter, wing, rear diffuser
7. paint exterior
8. reinstall engine with new cams (either schrick or sunbelt)
9. retune and go fast
