EGR post pulled right out. Thank you!

Got the zzp fuel logs hooked up. The kink in the return line shouldnt be a problem, should it? lmfao

Had to turn the fitting straight up parallel to the regulator. it fits almost dead center in one of the bubbles in the hood giving it plenty of clearance. Got lucky!


Ed carved me out a spacer with no coolant or EGR passages. sits a lil wonky here cause the gasket underneath was flexing up.

currently running 2.9" pulley with ~12psi @ 18* timing advance WOT with 0 KR.


wheels n tires will be here this week. then its track time to see if I can break the trans.

if she holds up, next will be body work and interior decorating. If she snaps, it will be new trans and she will go on looking like a hood rat riv on the outside. (not necessarily a bad thing)

Scan from today: AFR is transcribed to gasoline. Running a lil rich but from what I understand this is not a bad thing with corn juice. I will lean it out just until I see KR appear and then I will add a lil more then a sprinkle on top.  Check out IDC! They are barely trying! Man, I think I could go 2.8 or 2.7. I am willing to accept 17* WOT timing. I feel like there is a lil bit more to squeeze out of this current configuration.

So how much/little did that spacer actually give you?

I didnt end up needing spacers for this set up. They clear everything just fine. close to the strut but clears it fine. Pretty close to the front bumper but clears that fine too. Turned 100% in both directions and clears 100%.

they are 17.7lb OZ ultraleggeras with 235/55ZR-17 SUMITOMO HTR Z III

the Riv absolutely loves them so far. I will try to get a better shot of them up here.

ooo.. right...

No idea. I went from a 3.25" to 2.9" pulley so I got a pretty nice power gain from just that. Not sure how much came from the spacer. headshot

Just got out of work and went to fire up the riv and got no signs of life from my fuel pump. Fuse and relay are good. Waiting for AAA tow now... friggin AEM e85 pump....

Ima crack it open and see whats going on when I get home but if it's really dead... any suggestions on a better replacement? Tyler, hope you have better luck with yours!

How did you wire it? Crimp, solder, or twist and tape? My pump has been fine so far, it just isn't very happy with anything less than 1/8th of a tank...

At least they have a 12 month warranty, you could buy the new one and return the replacement one they send you. I crimped mine for fear of vibration breaking the solder. Some people say not to solder when there will be high heat/vibration so better safe than sorry I guess.

Thanks.



Well... I pulled the pump module. Tested the pump, not sure what it should sound like dry and running but it made whirly noises. Tested the wiring through the module and that was fine too. I was afraid that mystery black box was up to something? What is that thing anyways?



Tested the power to the pump and that was fine.

I have some more work work to finish now then im gonna head out to the garage and see if I can just plug it in without going into the fuel tank and see if it whirls dry.

Everything seems fine. No idea why it's not priming when i key on or running/pressurizing when i crank it.

Scott said its not VATS related because if it was the relay wouldnt kick on and it is.

Any more ideas, team?

Thanks but...


Well...

I am utterly stumped...


So i checked the module and pump and it was 100% good from what I could tell.


I go back out to the riv, plug it in but didnt drop it in the tank. It whirled/primed when key on. so far so good....







I give it a crank and it fired right up just like she always does.

So for all I know it was just some weird thing that I could have resolved by unplugging the battery and plugging it back in. cause i took the power off when i extracted the module.

I have no idea what the problem was but it's running fine now.

If anyone has any theories i'd love to hear them. bonk

Picked up my 'winter beater' last weekend. '06 saab (aka GM) 9-7x 5.3l LH6. 300hp/330tq
I got my Riv in 2011 out of Miami and put it through 4 terrible NW Ohio winters. I am proud to say I have finally relieved it from winter commute duty this year.

2016 season is upon us...


Going for that 12.999999 1/4 mile ET..

going to experiment with timing, AFR, and boost. If I still can't get a 12.99999999 with tinkering and driver mod, I am going to punish myself with a set of shiny ported heads.
