Well, I've been working slooooooooly on this car. I have some up dates. The engine management system is installed and the car is just about ready to fire up. This picture is what the finished engine looks like from the intake side..

Jeff, how hard is it to set the VE values? ( and make it run). I have calculated 2 scenarios and both tables look ( ok ? ) but very different. As this is a speed density unit, based off the RPM and MAP sensor and ( not ) the O2 ( used for idle and cruse only ) I will concentrate on Idle and then Stolic at the different fuel curves. ( How hard could that be............ :o  )   ;D

I for one am looking forward to seeing your car running. Nice piece of work! Keep us updated on progress, please.

By the way, it's turboford.net instead of .org .  They changed it several months ago.

How do you think the throttle response will be with the throttle body on the turbo inlet side? I don't know. Just curious.

Thanks

Well, this car has been through a lot of changes over the last couple years but I think this is the final version for this car. Its back to the EFI system.
