    Looks less slow

    i feel like something must still be off if you needed to modify the sensor bracket.

    I feel like something is still off if you had to modify the sensor bracket that much

    How smooth is your engine running now? Do you still get that awful vibration that our engines are known for between 2700-3200rpms?

    Yeah it's still def the loudest at that point but it's still very smooth. It's very happy high in the revs and chill at idle.

    You are right, but I have always wondered if the shaking is exaggerated by other factors. Some being a slight slip of timing, the IM flow imbalance, or slight weight imbalance of the crank.

    Update:

    Ran a new wire to my fuel pump as I was not sure the stock wire could support the amps it takes. https://mazdaspeeds.org/index.php?t...lcat-525lph-or-any-big-lpfp.11315/#post-83718

    Found out that @Maisonvi hellcat pump setup still works fine with low fuel "2 gal in the tank" Just filled the car up with 93 as I am going to try and get a 93 tune done before winter hits. Car has been running well otherwise. I did also add a vent to my valve cover and will make a how to for that. Seems to be working well and does not spray oil like my vent I had on the oil fill cap. For right now it just goes to a filter until I can figure some kinda catch can. The check valve is only needed if you run the other side of the valve cover to the intake. I am changing that soon too.
