Tinks Coupe
Saturday, July 01, 2017 11:36 AM
After almost a year of sitting in the same spot without getting any attention, I finally found some motivation to get the coupe back on the road again.

Why was it sitting? I was discouraged by finding this one day and didn't want to deal with it.

I hit the car with mold killer alittle bit ago and had been trying to find the motivation to clean the interior. It just so happens that I found just the right motivation yesterday.

1/2 way done

All done

Now all that is left is to register it again(ran out last month), get it inspected(in PA it has to be done annually), change the oil, and run out the old ethanol mixed unleaded 93.

BTW, the motivation I found involves one or two more of these, a special Sunoco pump, and a retune from Oldskool.

No, it isn't E85 and I haven't changed anything with the car. I want to see how much power I can make on my current setup and if this poor L61 will last the rest of the year.

The car is finally registered again and the annual inspection is done, so that means it is road legal again. I had it out trying to use up as much of the old 93 as I could. I ended up with a half tank of 93 that I added 7 gallons of 110 octane too(I was trying for a 50/50 mix to put me around 100 octane). Oldskool made the drive up and spent 2 hours just trying to get HPT to work. The newest version wouldn't log my car. Ryan ended up getting an older version of HPT from another KGM member(thanks again Jay) that worked. A few spirited runs later we went from 17* peak timing to, well, yea....

I hope to get the car on a dyno before winter. It has been awhile since I have driven that car so my butt dyno isn't properly calibrated, but it sure felt like it LOVED that timing.

Getting HP tuners to read is a headache sometimes. What version worked out for you?

Happy with the AFR's?

GMR has got nothing on this
