I can set the timing anywhere but if I add boost above 8psi it pings like a drunken maraca salesman. Anyone know why?

What is different from the stock setup? Did you shave the block or head? Old fuel pump?

Knock sensor is functional, timing has no effect on ping. I can wind it all the way advanced and it will not ping, only when I add boost. I was thinking I might put ice on the Intercooler but i don’t think they want water on the track

My previous best was [email protected] 86.1mph so I’m off almost a tenth of a second in spite of other mechanical improvements since then. BUT I also had a neighbourhood friendly exhaust system installed that includes a muffler and resonator as opposed to a straight pipe. SO I’m going to remove the exhaust system past the down pipe tomorrow. This will save weight and I’m hoping remove a restriction. We’ll see on Sunday I guess.

I got underneath with a 14mm ratchet wrench and removed the two spring bolts at the down pipe flange then removed the firewall hanger insulator. The pipe landed on the front underbody brace and conveniently slid to one side allowing for unfettered exhaust flow. I think I’ll take the weight penalty and leave the pipe in place to keep things equal to last weekends runs. Besides it’s one piece and a bitch to remove. I also have a set of these on the way.

On your MKI, get set, GO! I believe it ships next week.

I also believe this to be the very last full build G10T to come out of 3Tech.

Thank you Mike Cove. I’m thirty years late to the party and you still entertained me.
