I'm still working out a few small bugs. Had to order another new front o2 sensor cuz the last new one was not trimming out right. Also ordered and replaced the IACV for a ckt code. I was able to get it down to Fast Lane Turbo for a dyno tune and it is about 90% done for now until I have a chance to get down there again. It appears that Tom's tune was WAaaaaaay off the mark and now my car runs fine. Total waste of money hiring Tom.

Oh yeah, the rear main gave out again. I'm thinking that the mechanic got his finger oils on the seal and thus it gave out again. Gonna replace again at their expense since the work is under warranty. And while they're fixing that they will be custom fabbing an oil catch can so I can help draw out a little more crankcase pressure.

Other than these things she is running great and pulls like a bat outta hell!!!!! Should hopefully be dyno tuning the final end all by next week.

Note to you guys: Toms tunes are a waste of time, I've already wasted my money for you... No need to add to that expense.
Let me clear up a few things here , You stated above a new o2 was needed and that it wasent trimming correctly THIS IS A MUST FOR PROPER CLOSED LOOP TUNING which is the heart of good idle and driveability

You stated "I'm still working on the car but have not had the kind of time I need to really get into the nitty gritty like I want" this with other issues like bad o2 readings , time to spend tuning , oil leaks that stopped tuning ETC all come into play with the tune , we were at best 45 - 50% done with the tuning

I have done remote tuning for over 70+ Turbo cars now and ALL have stated an as good or better then stock driveability , you are the FIRST to state any issues with my tuning and I dont feel its fair to just my tune like you have done when the tune was not finished

please if these are not truithfull statements please post , to say it was a waste just isnt the case till the tune is finished , also why didnt you come to me if there were issues ? This is all news to me
