Hey now!

I finally removed my the DP on the RL so I can get an extra bung welded in for the wideband. The DP I got when I did the 3" swap this summer did not have any bungs in it at all. So I will have some new TVS results soon.

One thing to think about at the dealer. Every time I go they turn off my CC. I always leave it on. I think that is like the first step in doing anything. Turn off CC, fan motor, etc.

I should be getting my dp back tonight or tomorrow for the RL. I am off all next week for deer hunting so I will probably find a day to sneak to the dyno.

I have also completed loading the Trifecta PCM and TCM calibrations to the Regal. The car feels pretty nice. I have to make a VCM scanner config for the LHU to do some true logging. As of right now, I am pretty happy with how it feels.

Maybe I will rent an hour of dyno time and run both the regal and RL on the same day.

Well I never made it to the dyno. The RL is sitting in my yard under a foot of snow. I hate the treat the old girl like that but I don't have room in my garage. The Regal has been treating me well but the fuel economy sucks. I am only getting 21mpg on regular gasoline. Everyone says I should expect that with a 2.0L engine and a car that weights 3600 pounds. 3830 with the driver... lol

Wow, guess I shouldn't complain about the 26mpg I have been getting. Still, it's hard coming from an SC2 that ran on regular and got 35mpg!

The SC2 was a great little car. I had one too.

I keep thinking about snatching one up and converting it to electric for a fun project.
