  1. I have suspected mine leak a little. If my car has been driven already for the day it barely even cranks, it fires on the first compression stroke. For a car that doesn't pre prime the pump it feels like the injector has dripped just enough fuel in it to fire off. It start normal on a cold start of if it has sat for several days.
  2. I have a Delta Pag 18" 4000CFM Brushless on my Barracuda. I just recently removed the controller and I am running it off the Megasquirt EFI Controller with PWM control.
  3. There was an 87 Conquest in Austin Texas I came across when I was shopping for another Conquest in spring 2021. It had been sitting for a few years but looked in great condition and was running and driving. The only thing that really kept me from flying out and driving home was that someone had put a mechanical fan on it. It's funny I was prepared to put new tires on it and change all the fluids but I wasn't prepared to deal with a fan that was likely more reliable than the stock setup lol. I still think I made a good call to stay home.
  4. When using two fans I wonder if the CFM calculates the same? Or will they try to rob air from each other and reduce the overall CFM vs just adding the CFM of two fans together?
  5. That is a good point! The fan I use on my Barracuda and the fan I use on my conquest are brushless and failure is very uncommon. The little ECU that controls it can fail and I carry a spare of those.
  6. I have a friend of mine who has made me a real nice shroud for my Electric fan on my Barracuda. I run a single 18" 4000CFM fan on it. We started to discuss about going to a single electric fan and custom shroud on my Conquest. So when I get done with some stuff with my other car I am going to move onto doing a new setup on my Conquest. Has anyone used a large shrouded single fan and what were your results? I have seen several dual fan setups but can't recall seeing a large single. A large single clears up some wiring and in the end likely draws less power for the CFM but I haven't done the research on that yet.
  7. I ran into that trying a few different home brew boost controllers back on my first car in the 90s. It seemed adjustments made either no difference, or you got ALL the boost. I think I finally ended up with a regulator from an air compressor that got me about 12PSI on a super 16G. My first 87 wouldn't cut fuel or spark no matter the boost, I have no idea how it didn't die. I haven't pushed my current one past stock yet because I enjoy how trouble free it has been.
  8. That is kind of the range I was hoping for. I'll get it cleaned up and get some pictures on here. I have got to get rid of some of this stuff. I did not imagine when I got back into the Conquest game that I would have two cars and three engines within 6 months of purchase.
  9. I have a stock head with jet valves, it has no visible cracks and it came off my parts car motor and it ran for 45 minutes with no issues before I pulled it from the car and swapped it with a head I had inspected further. Does this thing have any value with the cam and caps? I had to mix and match rocker parts to get a real nice set so they aren't with it. I hate to just toss stuff but I am also busy enough that I won't make the effort to go to UPS unless I can at least get a little bit of scratch out of the deal lol. I have a two car garage, my Barracuda, my Conquest, Jeep, my work truck, and my wife's Grand Cherokee . The Jeep or the Conquest isn't going to make it to the end of the year I am tired of moving cars.
  10. I had a CNM Super 16G on my 87 conquest in the late 90s. I have another 87 conquest exactly the same and would love to find one of those turbos. Dude had my turbo forever when I had it upgraded!
  11. If it comes down to thinking it might be the ECU I have an 87 one as a spare I could ship you to try out if you don't have any close. I would be afraid to sell it though lol.
  12. Nice, what engine management do you have?
  13. I read right over the injectors being swapped oops. Have you put a timing light on it and kept an eye on it while it idles and maybe while you rev it a little? If you mark the balancer every 90 degrees of rotation you could check timing on each cylinder if you really wanted to drill into it. It sounds like you have been through the distributor but it might be worth another go, it might be worth checking the air gap between the reluctor and the pickup for each cylinder, just to make sure things are true. For what is worth mine does a similar thing at idle, sometimes it just has a little rough spot. I think it happens from the ECU chasing its tail trying to keep a certain air fuel target. I have a wideband and you can see it working to keep a target but the ECU isn't fast enough to really hold a target so it seems to keep the target in the middle and bounces across it. Mine normally idles at 13.8-14.0 but sometimes as rich as 13.0. I would probably have no idea this was going on if it had stock exhaust and no wideband.
  14. If you have another primary injector to try you might try that. It could have a bad spray pattern or dribble from either a slight leak or being dirty.
  15. Bold that you took the good spoiler off first! Looks like it went OK. Would heating up the blade help with the tape?
