    Yea ill post up, it will be about last on my list of shit to do since it isnt performance oriented. Im redoing my whole aux fuel system tomorrow then having to somewhat redo a lot of the tune then my 4bar should come in so then theres more tuning. Im still working on getting my suspension and alognment setup like i want. Then ill have time to check out the exhaust. That might not be til next spring.

    So I had a little time today to work on my tune. Im waiting for a bunch of fittings and stuff ill need to do my aux fuel how i want. So i thought i would work on my stock fuel system e30 map. I put on a little bit bigger air filter and im suprised how out of wack my fuel curve got.

    This was on very mild timing (12*) and like 111 idc so i need to dial a little boost back but feels pretty good. I always thought the corksport turbo was the best turbo for a stock block but its small and spools up very fast especially with meth. This turbo i feel is perfect for someone on a stock block and on stock fuel, it makes really good power and a perfect torque curve.

    So i got a 4 bar map and after about 2 hours of trying to find the best calibration, i think i found one thats really close and it seems to be reading within 1 psi of my boost gauge so im happy with it and once i get my aux fuel sorted i want to see what 35 psi feels like, maybe the cams will help me get to 38 but ill probably have to add a spring to push that hard.

    So for my aux fuel im just going to go full port injection with the damond adapter and run 550cc injectors maybe more. Going to add an inline bosch fuel pump and a return. Ill be controlling it all on an aem f/ic. I will spray meth through a DO size 7 nozzle pre tb for summer days and kill mode otherwise the reason im going port is for something that i can make a smoother maf curve with since i can play with pw and that the fuel wont vapor lock in the hoses since it will constantly flow. I need it to be more reliable on pump gas and whatnot for track use. I moved all my meth stuff to the trunk and ran a braided line up to the motor and can start tuning with that DO7 nozzle soon. Only way I can find legit meth here is by the 54gal drum and its $250 vp m1 and its 120 miles away. So one day soon ill have to make that trip because stock fuel power gets old fast.

    I forgot to say yesterday that i decided to put new plugs in it so i can see how the first 4k miles have been.

    Im very happy that they are wearing perfectly even, something ive never seen on this car. I think it has a lot to do with the intake thats flowing evenly. Every time ive changed plugs previously, number 4 is always burned.
    Im going to order a damond ps mount in hopes of easing some of the vibes from bsd and jbr mount. Id love to hear comments from yall on the damond mount with bsd.

    I also saw my first mazdaspeed in the wild today on the highway. It was a silver pu, i rarely even see another mazda so seeing a mazdaspeed is exciting.

    I was feeling creative today an decided to try an make a new alternator heat shield since the pte setup wont fit the factory one. All i did was cut up some of the pieces of the crash bar i had leftover from mounting my intercooler and i welded some of the scrap together and ground it down and bam. Id like to use some dei gold or something to insulate it on the alternator side tho.

    Can't speak for the folks with a BSD because my motor is still stock, but I went from JBR 88's all around to full Damond mounts. The Vibes went down a little which was great, but all the fucking engine noise I had before went away. I didnt realize it until then how much the noise bothered me, more so than the vibes. Suddenly I didn't have to yell at people who rode in my car, I could speak at normal audible decibel levels again.

    Hopefully the mount helps you too.

    I honestly can't remember, but it was like 50 miles or less. The original JBR's I had always took about 1000miles to fully settle down. (Did it twice because I got rear ended some years ago and stocked out the mounts.)

    Well shit the mount showed up and i threw it on an wow what a night and day difference. I cant believe it will only get better, fist time im actually hearing my turbo and tial bpv. Only vibes are at idle and i imagine they will smooth out after a little bit but i am amazed.
