In Topic: Offboost performance MPI

Itís incredible isnít it?  Iíve been running my mpi build with only the 4psi spring in the wastegate until I get all of the bugs worked out on the car.   Itís amazing how quick the car is even without boost not to mention how smooth it runs.  

Really proves that an mpi intake is the best upgrade for our cars...they should have had it from the start

Yeah, it has shaved door handles.  There is a write-up on how I did them in the FAQ forum.   Although that is the one modification I kind of regret.  I was popping 20A fuses, tossed a 30A in there and it seems to be working good but the wires get hot to the touch.  I should have ran higher gauge wires to the solenoids but I just used what came with the kit.  

Also it leaves fingerprints on the paint when you open the door :angry: .   I didn't install the spring loaded plates to push the door open when you energize the solenoids. It's already taken too much current just to pop these big and heavy doors.  

Thanks for the kind words.   I drove it a few more miles on Monday to work on the fuel curve some more.  It's ready to up the boost.   Although I found that I have a gear oil leak near the back of the tranny.  Most likely the rear seal.  I'll need to look into that soon.

Haven't had an issue filling the tank but I've only filled it once so far.   I'm confused?  The valve is wired to the fuel pump, so if the fuel pump is running it is vented.   If I ran it to the ECU, it would essentially do the same thing.  My setup is basically the same as yours except your canister is larger.  But the 'canister' I made has the same volume as the stock charcoal canister.

Glad to hear that it was resolved.   I've never had to prime the lines on a conquest, but obviously you had a good air lock in there.
