  1. Yes it is! And now is as good a time as any for an update, I suppose I finally saved up some of the money for a manual swap earlier this year. I didn't go AWD because I got sick of working on it and I drove some fast FWD cars and they were hilariously fun. Definitely a different type of fun than my 940 Turbo drift car. Of course, COVID hit in March and I was slated to work from home for a few weeks. Therefore, I decided, my stimulus check would go to a bigger turbo now that I had time to work on it LOL. So... it got a 5-speed swap AND a GTX3582R Where the car is at now:
  2. This Fiat has come so far. Looks amazing! Always inspiring to see your work
  3. Trying to prevent the archive . I'm deep into my last year of engineering school and I'm looking forward to graduation in May so I can get back to all my plans on this car. I haven not been able to track down the running issue. I was able to minimize the problematic behavior with a bit of tuning, but it still gets me everywhere I need to go reliably so it isn't top priority. It doesn't help that I keep spending money on computer upgrades, the racecar, and my new Motorcycle (2013 Honda CB500F) lol.
  4. Thanks for the response, I'm using a 3.5in OD MAF housing (which I think measured 3.25" ID) with my stock sensor of course. I started with 1.94 as my multiplier in that tool you linked, but I remember the car running rich mostly, but swinging to lean with the fuel trims occasionally. This was all before I bent those rods a couple months ago and I wasn't datalogging at the time. Since then, I've tried multiplying that (x1.94) table by 0.9 (which seemed too lean), 0.95, and 0.96 which I have been running on for a couple of weeks. My idle fuel trims are not any more than they were before th
  5. Kinda neglected the updates on the thread because of finals and work and yadda yadda. I've fixed the oil leak. It was a torn O-ring on the return tube - no biggie. Car is throwing a CEL for the BCS. I had this before and installed an inline filter to solve the problem last time, but honestly I have just lost faith in the ARD solenoid and I'll be investing in a Pierburg when my bank accounts recover. Also still have to play around with the MAF constant. Has anyone who performed a significant MAF upgrade have to change any other parameters besides the MAF map to achieve prior drivabili
  6. Car has actually been running and driving for a few weeks. I was fighting a dying battery and the car has been pissing oil, especially under boost. Been keeping it from running low maybe once a week as it goes down. New rod bearings are staying nice and lubricated with fresh oil anyway haha. I was able to trace down the drain tube O-ring as the suspected culprit with a cell phone camera. I'm tackling that this weekend finally because work has been pretty hectic as of late (NASCAR in peak season woohoo). i'm also going to drill out the PCV "valve" as I neglected to do that initially when I inst
  7. Yeah most things were still attached. The side skirts, mud guards, and trim around the trunk windows were removed and painted separately.
  8. Either read all 460 pages of this thread or head over to http://m44.wikia.com/wiki/M44_Wiki I recommend the second. Many people have put in a lot of work to make that a great resource. Once you get a bit of basic knowledge, you can ask specific questions that haven't been answered previously. Thanks!
  9. In more recent history, I spent a lot of time and money since then on computer parts and building a couple gaming PCs. Also, I have been battling around school work and my crazy new internship with a race team (top tier NASCAR team, pretty damn cool) to find free time. Most of which is now consumed by my other project car, a 1978 Volvo 242 that my friends and I are swapping in a truly idiotic 1.6L engine from a 1992 Mazda Miata. Shameless plug for our YouTube series on that car: Amateur Hour Racing on YT ( https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCV2_Q4fzZ55A243hlKeVJlQ ). When I finally got some
  10. OK time for a big update! I have still been slowly toiling away on this car, but I haven't really been active on here for quite a while. Some recent developments with the car (more on that later) have finally brought me back to share all sorts of fun with y'all. So here we go! Commence project catch up with Nick. So we pretty much left off around JULY 2016 with the new wheels, tires and fuel line repairs (holding up well so far). I rebuilt the dashboard with fiberglass reinforcement. Overall, this was a huge, huge improvement to the day to day pleasantness of the car. It is still holding
  11. Got it. I noticed people were just donating to last year's campaign. I had problems when donating to the 2017 one. My dad and I will be there again this year. Looking forward to another great show!
  12. Sad to see it go, but excited for the future! On to bigger and better things.....
  13. I went to donate and the GoFundMe is saying that there is an error with the campaign and that I should contact the admin for it. So... if someone can sort it out, I'd love to give some of my monies. Thanks!
  14. Might be worth reading the Wiki page: m44.wikia.com A good amount of the basic info from the forum is on there and should be easier to read. 607 vs 608 is manual vs automatic .bins
  15. Those wheels look amazing. Aggressive and classy, Love it!
