nGauge

Moved the nGague around to give me more 'windshield' area:



Wife did the best she could (it is a race car suspension ya know ;o):





Also ordered a Raptor Shift light from PhaseTek:

This will be in a great location and I'll be able to see it for sure!

Just chatted with Rodney @ ProMeth -- we were discussing the AEM flow gauge.

I found the gauge is not 'high' enough for the pressure of the ProMeth system -- It shows > 1000 cc/min and will do this if:
  • A small leak exists or
  • Too much pressure for the gauge

In this case, too much pressure but, with the gauge I KNOW its flowing (the AEM Progressive Controller LED is flaky and goes off/on too much). Due to the pressure created by the system, Rodney does NOT include a flow meter -- many can't keep up with the pressure generated. He supplies the liquid filled gauges -- which I ordered a second one from him.

I also asked Rodney about the pump -- he suggests replacing every 4 years of use -- not to rebuild.

Great support from him!

Shift light came in, created a coil harness extension so I can use it for the shift light signal:



I'll route the light and wire tomorrow and hook it up -- I'll set the light RPM low so I can test...

Raptor Shift Light

Got it installed, validated wiring, and now looks like the shift light has an issue:



I'll give Phastek a call and see what they think...

Edit:

Called Raptor and sent them an email. Left info for Phastek. From what I can see, its hooked up and wired correctly...

So I routed the wire harness and plugged into the coil, that worked perfectly -- this is stealth:



While I was in there, added a 'meth rail' pressure gauge:



I must say, Phastek and Raptor's customer service is outstanding! Both were quick to get back and Raptor is working with me -- they've never seen this issue before and, as usual, I'm the first ;o)

So, Rick at Raptor sent out another light. I installed that one and it’s still doing the flashing. Support has been outstanding. Rick gave me another suggestion and I’ll try that next...

Car is fun to drive! Not much else to do but maybe take it to GPI for a ck out (been a year) and do a dyno with the current setup...

Just booked for CamaroFest BG! Holiday Inn had the code so I wasted no time booking...

I’ve been out do to a hospital say — it was not fun.

Still recovering - no racing for at least 3 months... glad it’s winter...

Have a congenital heart defect, born with it and didn’t know it...

But, no blockages or other issues...

Fixed the shift light by adding a 1k resistor...

Yea, it sucks, came as a total shock but, must have been getting worse over the last year — just assumed it was dehydration, old age, etc. — way off on my part...

Working to strengthen the heart muscle — it’s very weak — even though I walk 2 to 5 miles a day usually...

Thanks!
