Hi everybody!

My baby got new fuel tanks and new uprated fuel pump. Today was my first 15 km long test drive after winter time (big smile on my face :-) ). Everything is fine, steady boost 1,25bar, MAT below 40 deg.C, she pulls like hell!!!

Fuel pump should be strong enough (300LPH), i have fitted racing primary and secondary fuel injectors, so it should be enough fuel.

I'm a little bit worried because of knocking. Freescan counted arr. 40 knocks on my first ride. Car is still in learning mode. Is this normal?

bye, Borut

Borut, I had some knock issues with my car too, I found that I had over torqued the knock sensor and this proved very easy to fix. I just pulled the sensor out and hand tightened it back in. I will now only pick up a few counts of knock and very little if any retard(no comments please :) )
