The recent updates:

- Gearbox
The outer half of the gearbox has to much worn bearingshells holder. So have to source another one.

- Megasquirt
It's hooked up, just don't dare to start it before somebody looks at my current tune

- Brakes
Rebuild all the calipers (mx5 rears and mazda 6) After sandblasting / powder coating now some new rubbers sealings.

Post Re: WhiteFinish's Log Gearbox PowderCoating p5
After some help from a guy from PT i managed to get the right settings in my megasquirt.

Last week it was at 3000rpm when stationairy.
Now i solved it and the car ran a lot better.

Yet, it still runs very lean. Got to figure at what that problem is.
It looks like my timing is way off.

Nope, it's one from EvilYeti.

Dutch member bought it (Yence), sold the car, and I pursuaded the old current owner to trade it with me against a OEM powdercoated one.

Post Re: WhiteFinish's Log Gearbox PowderCoating p5
Depending on your cams, you may get a false lean at idle due to large overlap. A good bet is to get an EGT (Exhaust gas temperature) gauge, it helps back up your lambda readings.

Post Re: WhiteFinish's Log Gearbox PowderCoating p5
Timing was off in the settings of Tunerstudio.
I didn't understand how it worked but somebody explained it to me...

Now works very nice.

Next thing i want to solve is the surging idle... surges around 650-750 rpm. I'm positive it could be a calm regular rpm.
