Just in case you didn't see it in the other thread.
Back to dyno tomorrow or Thursday to see if there are any performance gains. The "butt-dyno" makes my butt itch though. LOL. I think it will definitely make some power over my baseline. As soon as that is done, I will install the FSWERKs intake and go back and dyno that set-up as well.
I would then wonder if there are further gains to be had with your Accessport!
Yes, this is the main reason I hound Cobb almost daily (exaggerating, slightly) to release the Racer Access tuner software. I think with a custom tune I will be able to take more advantage of my modifications.
The butt itch could be caused by two things.
First the new exhaust could by generating a resonating vibration.
Second the personal need for "Preparation H".
Sent with my retro keyboard and mouse.
Oh there is no increase in V or H, just a little N. LMAO. The resonator works pretty well.
Oh thats funny since he calls the little beasty .. ya ready ?? The SILVER Bullet .. LOL
Hey now lol
LOL. Everything is on hold at the moment. I have a BAD kidney stone that decided to get wedged between my kidney & bladder at 5:30 am this morning. Been in labor "giving birth" to it for almost 11 hours with no meds or pain killers. I'm hoping it moves to my bladder soon...
Holy Crap man hope it pass's soon those SUCK...
Pictures or it didn't happen.
I hope everything comes out OK.
Dude that sucks. Hope there's a ker-plunk real soon
So after 10 hours of "giving labor" the stone finally dropped into my bladder and then I pissed it out an hour later. This is nothing new to me as I have gout flare ups from time to time and I've had around 6-7 kidney stones since 1999. This was without a doubt the worst one though since it originated from my right kidney (never had one on that side before) so there was no scar tissue and it was uber painful. When I have severe flank pain it usually ends in 3-5 hours and then the stone comes out a day or two later. Not the case yesterday. I have very high pain threshold, but I know when I can't take much more when my blood pressure drops to 90 over 30, I turn ghost white, feel faint, get a cold sweat and get nauseated. Never threw up before but did four times yesterday morning. Drinking water just made it worse so I had to drink a little at a time to keep it down (which only prolonged my agony). Anyways, usually my kidney stones come out looking like weed thorns (with a bunch of sharp spikes) and 3-4mm in size. This one was only 1.5-2mm in size and very smooth/round. It was the worst one I have ever had as far as amount of pain and length of time it took to travel from my kidney to my bladder. I don't wish it upon my worst enemy. LOL
With that said, I have an appointment with Cobb Plano for exhaust dyno test next Wednesday morning. I will see if they can install my FSWERKs intake in real time (or I can do it in their parking lot) and then do another set of dyno runs later that afternoon. If so it will be interesting to see how the OTS stage 1 map can handle all these bolt-ons or if some programming tweaks will be needed.
You're a trooper.
My mudder had 12 kids and said she would have 12 more any day than
