    Not yet, my local tuner said has some experience with it. I've been messing with binary editor a little bit too.

    I'll just have to spend some time over at eec tuning and get the hang of it.

    You're a brave man. I bought a tweecer and had it for a total of a week before I gave up and sold it. Too complicated for this dummy. I think I may consider the moates in the future or a PMS.

    They have some templates that zero out a bunch of those spark tables. that way I can just work on tweaking the injector slopes and the maf curve.

    Gotta love summit being so close. I got my gaskets and plug wire stockings in today.

    Hopefully I can get it back together and start datalogging this weekend.

    Yeah, i'm tired of spending money on it though. I'll tune it and drive it around some, but after that winter is going to set in and it'll prolly be parked for a while. My hobby will switch to getting a cherokee ready for the trail. ;)

    I researched forever before I decided on head gaskets and that's what I ended up using. Have held up well with 10lbs of boost, no studs and 100+ passes at the track....

    That's good to hear. Maybe it will hold together for me this time.

    The bypass valve is loud enough. And spool depends entirely on your exhaust setup.

    Oh, and if it matters it makes good power too. Lol.

    When we surfaced the heads, the one on the side that blew had a high spot on the center 2 cylinders. So putting boost to the engine must have been enough to do it in.

    The finish is a lot better than what ford had on there, here they are ready to go back on. I also bough a set of autolite 24's, I gapped them at .035. Does that sound about right?

    A little angle grinder with a scotch bright wheel on it made cleaning up the block a snap.

    I'm worried about one of my head gaskets though, because I put a little nick in the fire ring when I was setting the head on there. I'm not sure how crucial that is, but if it blows. I'm parking the car around back and leaving it until spring.

    The 9333 is a basic gasket, try the 1011-1 with the stainless firering (works fine even with an alum head).

    I assumne you were using an alum head based on the 3923 plug, try a NGK#8 (known as a 7173) they are a little colder and work much better then the 3923 (which is actually still pretty hot).
