I started the car with the PiMPxs installed. Pretty nervous as that's a lot of cash for me. To my surprise it fired right away. I've read a lot about having idle issues but mine just sat and idled at 1100 rpm. Need to work on getting that down a bit. Rev'ed the engine a bit and it's right there. Couldn't be happier. I verified my timing with the computer and it's spot on. Things are looking up. One thing about the PiMPxs is the tunerstudio comes with the basic version so no auto tune so I had to upgrade that. It's time for a road test and some auto tuning. I guessing I added 200 hp with the computer... see how it goes. Wish me luck.
Thanks. The good news is the new wideband sensor fitted my problem. I was out doing some tune and decided I should crank it up a bit to see where the AFR was running a higher boost. When I hit 10 psi it blow off the vacuum line to the PiMPxs and it started running rough so I got off the throttle quick. Well with the vacuum leak that created the blow off valve didn't work and out shot another belt. 🙄. Lucky I had the spare....
Looks like it walked off the back and got into the serpentine belt which knocked it off the crank. Car over heated pretty bad. Hopefully I didn't hurt the engine. I'm done with cogs for now, that's 5 belts I've tore apart. At almost 100 bucks a belt I can't afford to run it anymore. I have an 8 rib 8 inch serpentine crank pulley that is going back on.
