Went through the list of items yesterday left for the car at this time.

All in all next two weeks ill be getting the car ready for the dyno. Replace the alternator again. I still get semi low voltage output 12.7-13.1.

Tighten the rear end and remove the powder coat in critical areas.

Add some anti seize to the stem of the waste gate.

Finish it off with a boost leak test.

Goal is safe power where ever it ends. (Id love to get 450 wtq)

Did some prep work last night for the dyno.

Determined that the alternator was actually putting out a minimum of 13.6 13.7 volts. Within the Bentley standards.

However what i did notice is that the ecu is reading around 1.2 volts lower then the car is producing. Decided to screw with megasquirt and adjust the voltage compensation. Now its within .2 volts, however im 99% sure this will throw the entire tune off. as soon as it went from 12.4 volts to 13.4 volts it became lean at idlea meaning it is now sending less fuel to the car.

Thinking ill just touch up the fuel map on the way to the dyno and be very safe driving there.

Built a boost leak tester, at about 3psi i heard the turbine spinning (literally spent 10 minutes on this part as i ran out of time, ill have to rotate the engine to seal)

Found one broken hose clamp, catch cans seems to be working, but not as well as it did in the beginning, found a few leaks so hope that helps.

On the 7th ill tighten up the rear end, and boost leak test the car.

Little mishap this weekend, was hoping to knock out the rear wheel bearings on the e39 saturday morning. Its still not done. Lost power in the shop, and had to mend the e30 for the week of work commuting.

Driving home, the cps lost signal but fixed it after coasting to a gas station. Taking the axles and hubs to an indy to get them removed and installed.

Its been about a 6 months since ive had a speedo and or even made a video of the car.

Half throttle videos are like non-nude strip clubs.

e39 is up and running with new wheel bearings, alignment tomorrow, wipers work and new windshield. Shitty thing dealer broke the beauty cover on the m54 but is not admitting it.

e30 i am getting the tune pretty well locked in. Was attempting to fix the tip in part of and realized i had a big error that has been throwing shit off for some time.

Need to figure out the oil temp and pressure sensor stuff tonight.
