    Enki, sounded more like a confession of love / exiting the closet with an offer of butt touches to me.

    Update:

    Finally fixed my clutch line that was leaking, I had over tightened a AN fitting and it expanded it causing it to lose the ability to seal. I replaced that line and did proper tightening and re-bled , all was well. While I was replacing the line I re-installed my RAM Clutches 78300 as the pedal was still too high for my liking. After some tinkering I got it exactly where I want it and the clutch release is closer to the floor now. Which makes me happy. It does not interfere with the shifter I double triple checked.

    I ordered a new BOV to replace my tial ebay one, it has been working great but I figured I would get something more legit. Precision just came out with a new 50mm and I have been very happy with their WG so I decided to order one. It uses a Wave spring so it is much more compact than the Tial.

    At first I was super excited to get it going until I quickly realized how poorly designed it was for cars that have good vac. When I ordered it there was not documentation on the website and I assumed it would have a similar range as the tial does, NOPE.

    As you can see, the most you can do with the added spacers is -13.5 inHg which is -6.6psi. My car needs -12psi at idle or the valve will open and the car runs like crap. I called Precision because this was blowing my mind that they would release a new BOV that only works for v8's with vac issues. The guy also seemed kinda shocked by it and is going to be talking to their engineering team and get back to me hopefully today. The Tial valves work from -2psi to -20psi of vac which is a much more acceptable range if you are trying to sell a product to the masses. I did get it to stay closed by adding another washer but it would hang open too long coming to a stop and the car would stumble. I will say it does look nice in the bay though.

    PI fun times
    I finally got to test out PI and start making a little jam, it as been a learning curve on running two fuel systems at once but I am getting the hang of it. Thanks @Sho @andale927 @Enki for the advice and all the other random people.
    Here is my 2ndPI run that actually turned out pretty well and is a good base for me to build on. My 60-100 is the same as it was on my CS turbo 93 when the tune was complete. I really need it to warm up a bit as these tires needs some heat. I dropped my idle PSI to 42 as well so that I can be in a better spot for the pumps fueling abilities.

    Next step is to add more WGDC and more fuel. Baby steps. It is raining now :-( so maybe tomorrow I can get another log.

    You are both correct. Needs to stop raining so I can get more logs.

    Update:

    Well I am pretty much tapped out on 93. I am starting to see a little knock up top and I need to add a little more fuel but I am pretty happy with where it is. e50 or e30 will be soon have not decided which way to go yet. Car has been very consistent which has been a really good feeling. I have been keeping an eye on it and everything appears to be working well.

    Latest Pull, needs more fuel up top and smoothing but I took it to redline

    I have removed the precision valve and will be sending it back for an RMA, they will be checking out the spring to make sure it is working as they said with all three spacers it should be closed and not be an issue. I also talked to realstreet about it and Jay the youtube dude was the one who called me. That was pretty cool and he said they will help me out as needed.

    Really not much else to talk about. Tuning PI has been a bit of a pain in the dick but I am managing. @aaronc7 has been a bronameth and showed me how histograms works so that has been great. @Bigelow has also been a buddy pal. The best feeling is when you finally have it at a safe place where you feel good ripping on it. Next step CORN , BOOST, TIMING.
