Well folks... Yesterday was the day! I couldnt wait any longer. Made good
progress while working on the car, and decided to fill up the coolant and
make some last minute changes and fire her up!
First...I completely forgot the brake Booster hose. Ive done this before. Im
famous for it... So, the high idle and crazy AFR in the first two clips
are because of that.
Second...I just want to comment on how easy these motors fire up. I know
other motors do too. But every time Ive swapped an LS motor, even after
its either been sitting for years, or just recently put together, it fires
RIGHT up. Literally one crank and its fired up and running.
This video was recorded last night (9-24-2013) and is out of sync for what
I planned on posting. I have some other videos on steering upgrades and a
couple other things that I recorded before this. But I couldnt wait to
post it. SO here it is! Enjoy!
1988 Trans Am GTA vs 2012 Optima SX Turbo
I went out and tested just how lame my torque management is on this new
Kia. I have two really big problems. One is the delayed throttle response.
Even if I mash the gas on the 2nd honk it won't even be WOT yet by the 3rd
honk. Just rolls an inch or two in the meantime. So this makes your
consistency fly out the window.
Of course your natural reaction is to just stall the bitch up totally
eliminating the delayed throttle. WRONG. If the ECU senses any form of
engine stalling (brake Boosting) it
will cut Boost and turn your car
into a complete turd. We're talking over a full second difference.
Anyway here are my struggles while racing a 36,000 mile GTA with bumped
timing. Probably a mid-14 second car. As you can see it's extremely hard to
find that sweet spot.
