The summer is close to be finish... I still had few small issues during the summer, nothing big, just few like a young baby. A small welding joint broken, a synchro broken, a coolant leak (100% my fault), many issue with the boost level... I have difficulty to stay with my boost of 14 psi. Maybe I have trouble with the valve controller, or maybe with the wastegate spring. I will verify soon if the springs have tendency to loose tension caused by the heat. I ordered a set of springs and I will compare with my old springs. For the moment, my wastegate was not cooled with a coolant circuit, but it is easy to add.
I change many things on the car during the summer, all the electric relays for the rear are now inside the car, I removed the finished firewall wall with the speaker. This improve the access to my electrical stuff. And I relocated the battery (odyssey PC625) on this zone, just at the rear of the driver seat. I need to do something for better looking, the car still used on street. I also changed the fuel thank with a centered pickup, and this allowed me to removed the low pressure pump and the surge tank. My car was already with an external fuel pump and fuel rail.
I will post my electrical diagram this week, it is in PDF now, but I am not able to insert PDF, I don't how, I will switch it in image.
One trackday to come, and after, jobs for the winter:
- changing engine block for a reinforced block with blockguard, and I will be able to see how the engine looks like inside prior to broke it, rebuilding a none-broken engine is cheaper
- weight reduction, last year, the car weight was 2057 lbs, now I am at around 2010, working for another 10 lbs... 2000 lbs looks like a cool target
- improve the aero, splitter improvement, hardtop, etc
- dismounting all suspensions to verify if all sphericals bearing are in good shape... they are there since more than 5-7 years... and improve the bump steer, I just ordered a bump steer gauge, laser type.
Rational... not really.
