No,its in between summer,and winter.Once everybody gets going on the winter projects,it will get busier.
BTW nobody is using the new haven yet,although the old one isn't much busier.

:?

:?:

:cry:

Want / need to discuss: (realtime = not in extended searchs)

=Safc helping with fuel control / combined with GT injectors
=AfcR controlling boost

=Who makes that underbody chassis brace I've seen? (already have control arm brace will both work at the same time?

=new tranny / tranny bits and pieces (have bad 2nd gear grind)

=etc...etc......................................

I guess I can get to all of these things individually once the sites start to pick up

Turbo 3 represent!!!
I'm with ya brother!!! I would like to hear any answers about that SAFC install too, seeing as I just bought one (the old 5-knob unit, and now I found out that Apex-i never intended for this unit to be installed in our cars as it doesn't seem to be comaptible with flapper door AFMs and the G10's rpm signal to the ECU. I'm hoping there is a way to jimmy-rig this thing to work... can anyone give me specs on the RPM signal and voltage sweep of a G10 turbo's AFM? anyone use an SAFC on a turbo 3 before? I also bought GT injectors, hoping someone can give me tips on those too! Talk about coincidnce 3cyltrbo... we both have the same cars, same name, and we are doing the same mods at the same time!!!

The first thing everyone says is "the scoop's backwards"... :oops: Its a puller scoop; I plan to run ducting from the grill under the intercooler, and have the (kinda) low pressure area draw it out from the top. Judging from the way snow blows off my hood at about 70-80kph, it seems the opening of the scoop was a stronger low pressure area then I originally thought (it its quite close to the base of the windshield, a high pressure point but i moved the duct as far forward as I could), hope I'm right. Thanks for the compliments, I used single-stage Endura (Toyota Super Red, code 3P0 as seen on new Celica, Matrix and Echo) painted by a friend of mine who is one of the best painters I know, (and I know quite a few, my brother's a bodyman by trade). Surprisingly, it is smoother than many base-clear jobs I've seen, at the cost of about 3 small runs that are at hard to notice seams or are covered by my sideskirts. Turned out waaay better then I expected, as single stage jobs are usually orange-peely in texture. I'll pop by one of these days and show you, and at the same time check out that front tower bar of yours too! Did you figure out what you want for it?

good idea on the backwards scoop. The car looks pretty good I think.

It's shopping and work on car season. I'm busy playing with books and trying to get more car stuff done myself. Not on here much right now.

Thanks for the compliments Kyle! Only problem is I wish my engine were up to par with the body! The thing rattles quite a bit, especially when cold (what do you expect from a 230,000 km engine eh?). Thus, I wanted to ask you couple of questions: Would you still happen to have mustard's old engine lying ariound for parts, and is there anyhting salvagable from it? I'd be interested to buy. Also, would you have any insights for me as to how I could jimmy-rig my 5-knob SAFC to work with a turbo 3? Firefly1003 mentioned that you'd be a good person to ask. Please let me know, Thanks!

I don't know why Erik keeps telling every single person about that motor.... It's Adams now and he does definetely have plans for it.

I had zero luck getting hte 5 knob SAFC running on my GTi. Although, you have a different type of AFM on the turbo, so it may work. I don't know if I would try one for the sole purpose of being the guinea pig, but you may want to ask the guys on turbo3haven of their experience. A lot of them used to just play with resistors and such anyway...

What do you want to do,add fuel to run higher boost?

Exactly, Superf1y. I got Gti injectors sitting on my table, but I need a way to control them, ie. lean them up at idle and cruise and richen them up for higher boost. Is there a way to do it with resistors and stuff? If there is a cheap and acceptable way of doing this, I guess I'd have a 5-knob SAFC for sale then :roll: . Thanks

There are a couple of easy ways to do it.You can get an adjustable fuel pressure regulator(boost referenced),and run lower static pressure with your GTi injectors.You can stay with the stock injectors,and run a few cold start injectors,before the throttle body,hooked to a pressure switch.I've done that and run 22psi. It is a little crude,and not suitable for cool weather(leanout).You can use a potentiometer in place of,or along with the coolant temp. sensor,again with a pressure swtch,to fool the computer into running richer.You adjust the pot to add as much extra fuel as you need.This is probably the cheapest,easiest way to do it.I've run 18psi at 0deg.C,and not run out of fuel.Holy shit it was fast.I am working on a simple,inexpensive extra injector controller,with adjustment right now.If it works the way I expect,I'll sell it here.

Hey, those are great ideas! When you did the coolant temp sensor trick, were you on stock injectors? I had no idea the cold-enrichment cycle offered that much enrichment...
