  1. Excellent to know, hopefully sometime later this year. Wishfully sooner, but probably later ๐Ÿ™‚
  2. Thank you for this -- I was familiar, but always a good refresher. I think some of the confusion is just what was the definition of Sync OK, yet Sync error (after ok). Ref to Sync wise: The challenge is the all else being the same -- the manner for the camsensor is new and it's not sensing off the cam per se, but an attachment to the cam. So it's quite possible the cam tooth is not at TDC of the cam (or equivalent), nor was it previously, both old and new were attachments, the previous way was using a cut down PowerSteering pulley, now we have a bespoke fitting. So without the timing light -- it is/was a bit of a guessing game. Have the light now and just need to find time to get back out there. BTW, I no longer have my MOTEC/Dyno expert who tuned it previously -- is there a recommendation of someone to do this in Austin? thanks, Mike
  3. Been awhile since Iโ€™ve had my injectors serviced. Had to mail them off (but itโ€™s been so long I donโ€™t remember). tia!
  4. Just bought a timing light. got spark and better sync, was back firing with starter fluid. upped it 360 and have solid sync and firing of spark, not sure of fuel injectors flowing tho. 50psi fuel pressure. car is a 911 with a 964/993 3.8L based engine. rsr endurance pistons, webcam cams, perf springs motec with ITBs and fuel injection. this was a running setup with a Street 3.6 long block 2.5yrs ago. Been working on the 3.8 build since. new cam sync design and swap shafts. Hope to get back on it shortly, mike
  5. Working on an old M48 system. messing with crip w/o plugs got sync and no error & spark with plugs get sync ok, but the immediate sync error, but still sync ok, but donโ€™t think weโ€™re getting spark anyone local with knowledge. mike
  6. I have the rest of the system -- just looking for the TraqDash component. Mike
  7. I'm only looking for the traqdash part (have the rest)... I have sets of wheels (but they won't fit) ... I also have a beach house available (in Florida)... but it's a bit more than a Traqdash ๐Ÿ™‚ Mike
  8. Raced Laguna Seca. I enjoyed it, but not enough that I would go out of my way to go back. After 3 laps, the cork-screw was solved, once you realize the pavement never moves -- you don't need to see it to drive it. It was brake hard, hug the curbing drivers side, when you hit curbing, turn right and floor it. Pavement magically appears under tires ๐Ÿ™‚ . I basically treated this similar to Turn 8/9 at TWS. Just blind ๐Ÿ™‚ I did pass a lot of cars there -- so clearly others didn't solve the puzzle that quickly. Might differ depending on the car -- I was in a Honda Civic with an Integra engine. Turn 2 and 4 were challenging, and the fast sweeper leading onto the back straight was fun. If I ever do a LEFT coast trip -- I'll certainly repeat Laguna, but wouldn't haul that far just to run Laguna.
  9. Ouch -- granted you're not supposed to be out there -- but would be nice if those things were "marked" somehow -- you certainly had it under control enough to avoid it, if you knew it was there.
  10. I added just 4 of them -- maybe $80 on Amazon -- OMG -- definition of night and day! Not sure how I ever lived with out them. Doubles as a tanning salon for the better half ๐Ÿ™‚ Mike
  11. For the $, GA at T3 bridge was pretty good I thought. I've been T15 for practice and that's not bad -- but I wouldn't pay more to sit there. I was in the Grandstand for V8 Super Cars -- total waste -- Spent most of the time watching the screen across from us. Might as well be watching TV with SuperSurroundSound. Mike
  12. Yes the red Miata -- not your's unfortunately! Sorry about your car -- glad you were/are ok. I had one of those o-shit moments at NOLA last month. Chasing two 944's, one darted right, the other left and I was staring at the front of a SpecBoxster. Fortunately it was a slow speed corner and I was able to follow one of the 944's around the outside. I was like -- what the hell are they doing .... oh shit .... It's amazing both how quickly and in slow mo it happens at the same time. Re-tub -- and rock on!
  13. Wow -- that Miata lived a charmed life -- looks to be just enough blind coming over that hill to be a Holy Shit moment.
  14. I started with a 100W system I upgraded to 400W from Renogy --
