Well, She's (SDS) in...

This thread is long, so I've created an index.

INDEX

Page/ Topic
1/ Getting started; First tune in closed loop.
2/ First ZT-2 /EvoScan datalog with lean condition;
Aeromotive 1:1 FPR and –6AN connectors installation.
3/ Deyeme motor mounts install; Walbro 190 install;
Tuning in Open Loop.
4/ Baroscope; 100% Load issue; First Dyno.
5/ Log from Dyno; Bent valves at track; Long block Rebuild.
6/ 440 cc injectors ordered, Long block build.
7/ Track time; Oil leaks at cams, installed Ingall's Stiffy, and VR-4 fuel rail.
8/ Vortech SFMU install; SDS removed/serviced.
9/ Long block rebuild #2; VR-4 head gaskets; Pulse Plugs install; Walbro 255 install.
10/ 10 psi; Wastegate as boost controller discussion; 2nd track time.
11/ Boost Cooler install; Photos of setup; Emissions preparation; Invidia N1 removal.
12/ Heat shield; Passing emissions; boost cooler test/first trials.
13/ SDS weld cracks, removal of butterflies, ignition wire discussion.
14/ SDS weld repaired, B-day Cake, 10.7 psi, Megan OE-RS install, misc. discussion
15/ Stage 2 with wastegate discussion, Draw-thru piping pic, Quaife and FX300 bought, Big Map.
16/ More Big Map discussion, LSD install, Brembos being prepped for install. New rims and tires.
17/ Brembos, Front Lip, Oil Catch Can, Stage 2 axles, and EVO TB seals installed. Datalogged 11.4 psi and finally hit high 13's in 1/4. Extra V-5 and V-2 SDSs. Center Section redone.
18/ BOV failed and replaced, new built block installation, new Damond venting oil catch can.




I got my SDS in. It would have been nice if GCT sent me couplers so I could actually hook it up to the TB! Idiots.

The good thing is, even though the blower is just blowing into to engine bay freely (and loudly, I might add), it gives me a chance to be sure that all the belt tolerances, oil feed lines, and the blower, are working properly under a light load.

For example, I noticed, after a light 8-mile drive, a little bit of oil at the outlet of the blower. I wiped it clean, and if the oil reappears, guess who gets to go to Vortech's factory for new oil seals? Better now than later...

So, anyhow hope to have a local shop finish the piping this week for me and be on with it. I plan on documenting the install in a separate thread when I was completely done, but I thought some of you would like to see how I altered my CAI. Enjoy!

My mods list that I will update from time to time is here: https://www.club3g.com/forum/members...3-gts-sds.html

Wow, that was fast... actually there is a lot of room for my piping there, so I don't plan to relocate the battery.

It actually doesn't... it gets crushed a bit...but it only needs to last until I can get the piping made... plus my car is not a daily driver, so I'm not going far from my house.

I hear ya Randy, but at this point it is not in my plans. She's a 'garge princess", and I think I only put 800 miles on it for the year. I'll pull out the battery if I need to get in there.


Thanks for all the well wishes

Gee, thanks Randy! I love your vote of confidence. But to be honest, whether it be a turbo or the SDS, I'm going to spend time in garage tweaking, fixing, and hopefully, not too much, replacing... it is now a hobby. I'll just be concerned with the mechanical operation with the SDS as far as Ripp gear is concerned. Man, my car sound like a jet rolling down the road... got to get the piping on!

In all honesty. Either kill will work well with the proper car holder. My weak link is the fact that i dont know anything about tuning/monitoring

Phil, if you ever need a hand you can count me in. Free labor rules eh? :P In fact, I still have some left over SDS parts laying around. What piping is it that you need created? I still have a 90 degree intake pipe to the tb from Ripp that doesn't have the bosses for the 06 fuel upgrades. I probably also have couplers that would work in your situation. For the SDS, a battery relocation isn't necessary specially considering you are using a GTS manifold and most likely won't upgrade to the diamante.

I can't wait to see how your car runs w/ just using the flash. Then you can race my talon that I finally finished up and realize that the 3G even boosted is still slow.

It shall be interesting to see it run ECU reflash. As for the battery, move it to the back. So much easier to work and run piping and even add stuff.

Thanks Greg, I think I'm covered for now. I'll revisit the battery location once I get the initial tune going. One project at a time...

I've already created a conservative tune, which builds in a lot of error protection.

Looks good.

I relocated my battery. It was an easy task, and does help out quite a bit. Its not necessary though.

Not sure who you bought your kit from, but they should have told you that spooling up the Vortech with no load is taboo (according to Vortech). You should never free rev your engine either.

Thanks for the post... and I've read that. They are referring to free-revving where rpm level increases very fast. It has nothing to do with leaving the piping off. I will call them to be sure.

Yeah, right! Something tells me Russ included couplers with the kits that went out.

I'll tell you what, driving that blower does take some power... I can feel its parasitic effects when I drive. Right now, it looks like Tuesday of next week is the earliest I can get the piping on.

Ofcourse it will take some power, however its probably 10-15hp at most. If you lighten up the crank pulley and flywheels. It really helps out.

Already got the lighten flywheel...

Anyhow, I got an e-mail from Vortech and there is no issue with not having the blower hooked up. From Chris Matye at Vortech:

I never had an overheating issue and I think I probably have the biggest FMIC out there on a 3G...

Then again.. how many miles did I put on her?

Once you remove the stock air filter system, there is a good amount of room to work with.

Currently, I am sticking with the stock 10:1 pistons. All the document accounts I've seen with the BB and the 6-psi pulley, the GTS held up fine. I've talked to some of those owners, I guess it has been almost 2-3 years ago, and they had trouble once they moved up to the 9-psi pulley. I still believe with the proper tuning and tuning tools, the GTS can obtain more ala jbasol with his 15-psi level on stock GT pistons. Id have to be sure the ECU Flash can give me that type of control before Id ever consider going there.

For now, I'm keeping my FI fantasies realistic. I really wanted to get this car up to the power level it should have been designed for in the first place. The 6-psi pulley will allow me to get there easily. I also want to enjoy it for a bit.

The good news is I am 'on' for getting the piping fitted tomorrow.

True that...
Still, it's all on the side opposite the pulleys. I have multiple spots in my engine bay where I can reach through all the way to the ground!

repped for nice (though temporary) setup!

Didn't get as much done as I would have like to today. The shop didn't have a good stock of 2.5" and 3" piping to make the system. It's on order and we'll try again after Thanksgiving.

When it settles down, AFR were between 14.7 and 15.0 @ 710 rpm. The longer the car was on, the better it idled. If I need to adjust the ISCV steps, I will... but I want to see if the ECU can adjust for now.

The first drive was fine. LTFT go from 0 to 3+. After deceleration down to idle, it hunts a bit, but is slowly improving. I stayed pretty much in no-boost conditions. With my BOV set to soft, I did hit it a couple of time between 2500-3500 and boost was 1.8 psi. I felt a slight difference from stock, but I did not stay in boost long enough to really feel the effect. AFRs seem normal at that rpm level. Even though the BOV is recirculating, I get a nice fsssssshooo, when it opens.

Right now, the car drives like stock and I couldn't happier. A bit of work to do on the tune, and I'll have some logging sessions with the ZT-2, EvoScan, ECUEdit and whatever other device I can throw at it. No codes or pending codes at this point.

What size injectors are you using and what changes on ecu flash did you make to compensate for the larger injectors?

Running 310s that are currently scaled to '290'. But that was the initial scaling I had for my NA tune. Gonna have to change that... I'm also need to mess a bit more with the latency.

I want to give the ECU a chance to settle down since I just reset it. Cold idle and normal driving are just like stock. AFRs are perfect stoitch during those times. Warm idle is the same as NA with a stumble down to 500 rpm every 30-40 seconds or so... AFRs swing from 12.5-16.0 during that time, and it takes about 10 seconds for that to clear up. Same with deceleration to a stop, the idle will hunt a bit. I have no stalling issues at this point.

Seems to me that the periodic rpm drop to 500rpm is due to the ecu trying to recorrect everything. If you guys can prevent that, then you are made in the shade .

On a second note, im pretty sure Kris and Matt dont have any rpm drop any time, and cold starts are a snap. (Both have haltechs).

Thanks. The weather here is rain and I still have the splash guard off. I plan on securing the MAF a bit more with some bailing wire... I want to do some basic non-boosted driving, get the fuel trims right and see how the ECU reacts with more time.

I did a warm idle log and I'll compare the data with one of my N.A. idles tonite.

Things all sound really good for you man - glad to hear it. Your setup is basically identical to the SDS setup I had planned a while back if I went that route - if all goes well for you it might (once again, sigh) give me something else to think about (currently I'm stuck in the turbo or all out N/A debate with myself). Keep us updated on those things like the oil leak and any other mechanical problems that might crop up, and good luck!

We see how it goes. I've already decided to have new seals put on by Vortech. When I drove around with out the piping, I still saw and felt a tiny bit of oil on the outlet. I'm keeping a close eye on it, and after I make some head way on the tune, I'll pull it to send for refurbishing.

Another update:

I've been working so I haven't had time to do much tuning, but I did change the original tune a bit for idle and LTFT.

I'm finding that the fuels trims are unbalanced. Meaning that the fuel trims for the front bank are different than the rear bank. The Pocket Logger doesn't show this difference as well. With a different logging tool, my LTFT were about 0.0 and 3.0 (rear and front respectively). I changed the injector scaling and got -2.0 and 0.8, which is better but still unbalanced. I'm starting to wonder if the stock fuel rail and FPR are just not up to the task. I'll keep an eye on it a see what comes up.

My idle has improved with some of the changes I've made. The idle adjustments are a function of changing the warm engine ISCV steps using the flash and adjusting the idle speed screw. I just bought a new Greddy RS BOV to replace the e-bay Greddy knock-off that I have on the car currently. So, I'm going to have perhaps make changes based of how the newer and better BOV purges the rushing air during idle.

Car runs like stock otherwise. AFRs run a little lean at about 4k when boosted with no knock count. I have to get a little more aggressive with the maps since the ECU can't see passed 100% load. I also have a 255 Wally waiting in the wings if need be.

The one thing I have noticed is that the car has about the same power at 4000 rpm (I saw about 4-5 psi on the ZT-2) as it did at redline N.A. That is just based on feel. But the power is noticeable. I'm keeping away from the higher rpms until the AFRs are in a better place.

The last time I drove the car on Saturday, I took a friend around. When we stopped, he complained about a smell and seemed to be concerned. What he smelled was all the new rubber hoses and couplers that were being exposed to the SDS and engine heat. I'm so used to it by now that I didn't notice. No worries.

Could your offset fuel trims maybe having something to do w/ the cams?

You are running the bigger injectors on the stock pump?

Glad things are going well for you. Im jealous but glad you are one step ahead of me too! I appreciate the help youve given me and hopefully Extreme can pull together for me sooner than later. Keep up the good work!

Extreme? I hope you aren't referring to Extreme Motorsports... I'd stay away if I was you. They couldn't even tune my DSM right.

Rep, once you get everything in tip top running shape, get us some videos man. I am excited to see how your stock motor handles the boost. Keep us posted!

Yeah, I'm running 310s with the stock pump and FPR. While the car was N.A., I hadn't seen different LTFT beyond 0.1%. The rear LTFT would mirror the front LTFT. I may reset the ECU and see how they settle again. It's a good point about the cam offset, but you should see the same thing N.A. I gut tells me that the FPR could be doing something weird when I into low vac and boost situations.

Exactly. The thing is Greg, even though I know how you feel about Extreme, they are just down the street from me. A convenience that is hard to ignore.

Here's the thing: James contacted me a while ago inquiring about the GCT draw-thru pipes, that were no longer offered because of the mess Jimmy and Donny made. When they were offered, GCT wants to charge James about $1100 for just the pipes! I was also getting the run around from GCT over the couplers. So, I thought there was another route I could go: having Extreme make a new set of pipes that would simplify the coupler design. For logistical reasons, that has not happened at this point.

I got tired of having the SDS blow just into the engine bay, so I bit the bullet and ordered the couplers. As you know, they came to me in four days. The problem is, the right-angled 3.5" to 3" coupler is about $250+ by itself, so the entire four coupler set, would cost about $350+ to fit GCT's piping. I got lucky in the sense that Turbo Hoses had a 3.5" to 3" angled coupler that a customer returned, so I got it for $115 for a total cost for all four at $221.

The idea, as I said before, was to have piping made to use cheaper, standard couplers (a 3.5" to 3" transition would be cheaper). I've told James that I am still committed to the project.

Greg, do you want to get into the pipe making business? Your location is the only reason I didn't charge you with the task. Plus, I've had a fairly positive experience with Extreme and as I mentioned, they are just to damn close to where I live. But I'm getting to the point where I want to get something for James and other members if there is more interest. PM me.

Yup, it may be hard to see in the picture, but I used a 1" molded radiator hose from the auto parts store. It goes directly into the large coupler that fits onto the inlet of the SDS.

Definitely! The goal was to have the entire project done, then post the tuning results, and other helpful hints to others going down the SDS road. I wanted to avoid the "...well, today I put on my air filter..." type of step-by-step thread. As you can see, I got to a certain point, excitement took over, and I had to post my progress!
