Got her out of storage today

Woot. WOOT. I have not had an SEG in quite some time.

My first order of business today was to fill up with some fresh 93 (DIC said I was on fumes) and start data logging.

Logging was interesting... on an 80° day, my IAT's did not drop below 102° after getting gas. Also, my TPS showed a max of 88% position at what I thought was WOT (WTF?), which I will have to re-check/verify later. My best MAP was 95kPa with a baseline of 97.

I am excited to install my Svede Speed OTRCAI (buy or die!) and start logging with it. Jerry (Svede1212) was super awesome for building me one, and especially a product that is so well made, and 100% complete with peripherals and instructions. Plus it's made in teh USA's... by a fellow GTO enthusiast, no less.

I also have a few weight reductions left to perform, and weigh the sum of (if I can) and individual parts thereof. I also MUST do my diff fluid soon with 38,000+ on the clock, and plenty of 1st gear rips since I bought it at 34K. The engine oil's going to have to wait until June when it hits the 12 month mark.

Feels good to be back in the saddle, gentlemen. Feels very good.

Congrats on getting her out of storage!!
Can your tuner read engine parameters with the engine not running? Then you might be able to check the throttle pedal/computer/throttle plate in the driveway.

If you can do it sooner you should. When used oil sits for a period of time it becomes very acidic quickly unlike unused oil.

<-- Guess which ones quicker?.....Nope! Not even close.

Yes it can... I was just too lazy to hook it up again yesterday.

I'm running AMSoil, they say it's good for a year.

I belive that the throttle in the LS2 doesn't open all the way from the factory. You can probally adjust all that with your copy of HP Tuners. I've only hooked my LS1 up to it so far and tweaked a few things, I'm still learning how to use it because there is so much crap and I don't put enough time into it really. Starting to think the almost $1000 I spent for it with my WB was a waste when I'm modding my car like I had planned on before I lost my job.

+1 I feel swamped with stuff I need to learn... taking a few notes helps a little. I started out by defining all the terms they use.

I wish there were more tuners in my area that weren't so uppity about giving advice without giving them money first. Like it's this big secret, and I won't learn anyways.

You can't blame the professionals, after all, you are asking them how to do their job and get around paying them for the service. It's like calling a restaurant and asking how to cook a dish they serve, you just don't do it.

OK, I've looked everywhere and I can't find any definition of what an OTRCAI is. Based on what I've found, I'm going to guess it means Over The Radiator Custom Air Intake. Is that right?

What exactly, does it do?

I suppose, but there's no reason for these guys to chuckle when you ask questions... it's not like they weren't n00bs once.
